It's not even Friday, but my word it feels like it should be.  Anyone else up for a drink and chat?

Already had a wine, Work was boring and I got a new role I don't like, and 3 year old DD is being a typical 3 year old and saying mum and why every second!

AV what happened in your day?

Posted 28 February 2013 - 06:00 PM

Not so much my day as my week!

Let's see...only second week in my new field placement and I made a total fool of myself on Sunday...ended up having perilous misadventures with DD in the storms on Tuesday, made even better by accidentally emailing a dramatic account and request to pick up groceries on the way home to my lecturer instead of DH...and, for those of you who might remember a thread of mine a while ago about a problem with a counsellor, that went seriously bad and ended up with me storming out of her office yesterday, never to return... sigh.

But, today I bought new shoes!  So not all is bad!   wink.gif

I'm planning to make mulled wine shortly.  What is with this crazy Melbourne weather?  Today feels like winter!

Well, I cried at work today. It was terrific. I had a customer yell at me and when he ran over our past conversation he imitated, IMITATED my voice (you know that stupid "girl" voice men do?). I am now drinking away my sorrows with Rose. I feel like sh*t, happened right before I left work too.

Ugh.

Anyhoo, onwards and upwards. Tomorrow I am going for a weekend away with my mum and I got a call to say my wedding gown has arrived in store, so I need to turn my mood!

Sorry to hear about your counsellor AV....I remember the thread and she was out of line...do you have a recommendation for another? But I know it must feel daunting to have to start from scratch.....

But yay for new shoes! Describe?

Have you given wine up for lent or are you imbibing?

Loz-  I think it stands for Thursday night drunk female bar ...? Or something like that

Joisme - yes three is a difficult age!

I was just really sh1tty to poor DS (6) ...he has a spelling quiz tomorrow and I was testing him and he wasn't concentrating....he is tired, I'm tired, we were doing it over dinner because that's the only time we have. Sigh. I feel like a real b1tch.....I have to remember how hard it is to learn all this stuff...

Wasn't going to drink tonight but I think I will!

I wish I could have a drink....does that count?

Still getting by with a dull background headache because my new glasses aren't here yet and I'm existing on the wrong prescription still. My usual Mr Smileybum 15 month old seems to have decided today he's going to be a Mr Whingeygrumpybum instead and it's been stupid-hot all week.

On the plus side, I bought a new cook book today and made schnitzels for dinner.

So many questions!  

I have a *sort of* recommendation (as in, she suggested I look at Anxiety Australia, but I did that today and what they're offering won't suit me at all).  Gah.  Big nasty mess.

I can do better than describe.  Picture here.  Very very comfy.

No, I'm not fasting this lent.  I decided, what with one thing and another, that I had enough challenges on my plate to provide me with spiritual discipline.

i-candi, what an awesome thing for your DH to do - happy anniversary for yesterday!

Hope you can sort out the counsellor situation...not good at all...

Hey gals, I'll nibble a few peanuts with you if I get a chance. Actually today is the first night I probably don't feel that I need to pop a cork! It hasn't been too bad; even better considering the Melbourne weather has finally cooled off for a bit!

Ange, I'm sorry to hear you've had a crappy week.. I was going to have a go at you for starting two bars in less than a week wink.gif but I now think it's warranted  hhugs.gif

Gotta bath my little man and will swing back in if time and tiredness allow!

Enjoy *pop*

Although I wasn't planning on having a drink tonight, I'm having the afternoon from hell with DD.  Screaming, yelling, being told I'm a meanie, worst mother ever etc etc for hours means I'm not in a good frame of mind and need something to try and wind down.  Sorry for everyone else who is having a terrible day/week.

Nice shoes Ange original.gif

I got the Golden Book of Patisserie. Reduced from $60 down to $16 - I'm such a sucker for a cheap cook book. Plus well, it's cake. Who doesn't like cake?

Though one of the books DH got me for my birthday on Monday is very interesting, recipes from Jerusalem. May need to find a specialist spice store. I've never even heard of some of the ingredients in it.

Oh yeah, I'm sure I'd heard the 'Drunk Female bar' explanation before, but I always think of it as the 'DruidFemme' bar and imagine it's full of feminine druids.

ETA: I really want the Ottolenghi Plenty cookbook. It got such good reviews.

Let's see...

Zhoug - apparently a spice paste, so might be able to find a recipe and make my own

za'atar - Wikipedia is suggesting it could be related to oregano or marjoram, but is a separate herb/spice in it's own right.

Mind you, if Kakulas Bros in Northbridge doesn't stock it, I'd be very much surprised. So may not be as hard as I thought. Love that place, where else can you buy cinnamon sticks by the kilo?
