So What Have We Been Up To?

Well on the weekend past our original intension, after a busy few weekends, was to stay home and do nothing. To “cave” as I like to call it. This means no phones, no gallivanting, and no visitors. Then Damien invited his buddy J over for the weekend, and that made me happy because the two of them can keep each other busy.

It started with a scrap-booking lesson at my mommy darling’s place on Friday night. I learnt a few new tricks and I liked the page I did- but I was disappointed at not being able to buy all the lovely scrap-booking toys that were on offer! Snazzy punches and sexy, wiggly paper cutters and such… I hate not having money for such stuff.

Anyhoodle.

I then picked up Damien and his buddy and we went through to Glugster’s place.

Damien and J pretty much rearranged Glugster’s living room in order to play PS2, and he and I went straight to bed after a shower and a long hot bubble bath! Divine.

Saturday morning the evil puppies arrived for the weekend, and after sleeping late, Glugs said he felt like doing something.

There’s one way Glugs and I differ bunnies, I can quite happily spend an entire weekend in bed watching TV and napping and snacking- he likes to go out and do something. And we had a lovely time too. Damien and J opted to stay home and swim and Glugs and I found a zoo right near his house!!! I filled my camera’s memory card for the first time since I can’t remember when while we strolled around the little zoo (you can check out my photoblog of course) and then Saturday evening we watched “Wild Hogs”. On Sunday we slept late again, and then went looking for a snake park that sadly no longer exists. We went to see the Lipizzaners instead. While we missed the weekend show which happens in the morning, we strolled around the stables anyway and I photographed the horses. And kissing and cuddling the gawjiss stallions gave me hay fever so we quickly went home so I could get some antihistamines! Then we took the boys to a nursery for a late lunch and much to their delight there was a reptile exotic pet shop at the nursery (there are yet more pictures on my photoblog, big surprise, teehee)!

Monday was hectic as I misjudged the traffic badly! I got the boys to school on time but I was a little late for work. And I didn’t feel like working. And I left my “doggy bag” of Sunday’s lunch in Glugster’s fridge so by 11am I was so hungry I was nauseous!!!

And I burped!!! It was a little one- but a burp nonetheless- and the first one since my op in September 2006!!! My colleagues laughed their heads off at me phoning and texting friends and family to tell them!!!

Monday evening was spent celebrating my nephew M’s 15th birthday. Wow. I cannot believe he’s 15 already. He’s my eldest godson, taller than me and so good looking! Cake and tea with all the cousins, yummy!

This morning started like most days do… if you could hear the way Damien speaks to me you’d swear I kicked him awake every day! First he lost the plot when I refused to give him money for lunch. Thereafter he put his earphones in and pretended he couldn’t hear me unless I yelled loud enough for the neighbours to hear me! Then he wasn’t wearing his school golf shirt, and we argued about that as the school rules require they wear it every day. So he stomped around because I had instructed him to wear it. Then, as true as nuts, when we were halfway to his lift to school I noticed he wasn’t wearing his golf shirt!!! We had a brief discussion in the car over the fact that he wasn’t wearing it and he stated plain and simply that he did “feel like it” which was when I turned the car around and sent him back to the flat to fetch it. Then when he got out the car to catch his ride he left it behind and threw a mini-tantrum when I called him back to fetch it!

Fucking hell.

I’m not exaggerating bunnies, really.

I am so sick and tired of his crap it’s not fargin funny anymore bunnies.

The result of course is that we both start our day in a bad mood.

Maybe I should try kicking him to wake him up- then he’ll have a reason to be such a PITA every fucking morning.

    have you ever been to your game park?

    sweets: ooh, changing your name now eh? i think i can be glad i burped…

    nosjunkie: i think there may be one or two kids who give the school grief about it- but damien can be particularly full of it…

    elise: oh but we are out to get them!! teehee… the zoo isn’t very big…

    preposterous ponderings: mwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa

  3. Dyna Girl says:

    Right there with you on the ability to hunker down all day. I rarely date anybody who is as much as me. I do enjoy getting my ass in gear with a little help, I guess. And I LOVE the Lipazzaners! xoxo

  4. yellowdog granny says:

    sounds like a great weekend..and damiens actions are the main reason why I belive in just a little child abuse..a whack upside theback of their head always worked for me.

  5. Louisa says:

    Ooooh, I love the zoo! We used to spend all our public holidays there doing picnics and walking our whatsits off looking at all the animals. (This is also how it happened that an elephant sneezed on me once…if you can imagine exactly how gross that would be then you’d still not be factoring in the nasty smell…oh well, at least I can say been there, done that).

    Your son sounds like a real ray of sunshine angel. I don’t know how you keep dealing with it.

  6. Faerie says:

    haha… sorry but I figured a solution really quick. (same as I did to the girls when they fight about a clothing item) … I take all the clothes except for 5 outfits.. including underwear and socks… in his case… Id take all his shirts except the golf ones. oh and Id prob pad lock my door.

    Yes Ang, this pisses them off for a couple days, but somehow they decide that a shirt isnt worth my lunacy. 😀

  7. Preposterous Ponderings says:

    Those air horns do wonders at waking teens up. Trust me!

    You should give it a try! he he

  8. Elise says:

    Teenagers are such handfuls! For some reason they always think adults are “out to get them”. Even if all you’re doing is waking them up!

    You found a Zoo?! How on earth did you guys miss a zoo?

    Sounds like you had a lovely relaxing weekend

    xx

    ` Yay for school uniforms. I would die if I had to wear a golf shirt, because I had one and the sleeves bugged me so much I couldn’t wear it without anything over it and eventually it was so irritating I rippeditupinabigpileofanger!!! Gr.

    ` Like the animal park photos. Such a cute little crocodile and zebras and stuff. Believe it or not, there’s also on in Ohio. How the antelopes keep warm, I don’t know!
