Okay… so just the other day I wrote this https://moretimespace.wordpress.com/2009/06/19/things-can-only-get-better/ and some folk said – Hey, don’t worry – at least things can’t get any worse.
I figured today would be a bad one when I woke up having a coughing fit due to the damp (caused by the water tank leak, mould, damp and glass fibre). It was a proper coughing fit… big lumps and blood… left me slightly breathless all day – and 18 hours later I’m still wheezing.
To cheer me up – and give me a late Fathers Day meal, Chris bought a curry in so it would be delivered just as I got home at nearly 6pm. Sounded good to me.
I hate it when people say “at least things can’t get any worse….” because life sees that as a challenge.
So… today as I drove home from work in the car we brought on Saturday I had to stop at the side of the motorway as the engine emptied it’s contents of oily water on the road. I had to call the Lloyds TSB card services (again) and get the AA out.
5 minutes before they arrived it started to rain, and all I had was a shirt (and trousers of course) to protect me.
I finally got home at gone 9pm. I just wasn’t in the mood to enjoy the meal that late at night.
I spent the next 45 minute trying to sort out taxi’s and trains so I can get to work in the morning…. that’s damned expensive = and money that we just don’t have – as you well know from the past years blogs…
Less than 4 weeks ago I had never called an insurance line, never claimed, nothing…. In the past 4 weeks our car is written off due to an idiot driver, the roof floods and wrecks the ceiling due to an idiot plumber, and the new car dies at the side of the road due to… well… because it bloody had to really, didn’t it.
Don’t tell me it can’t get any worse.
Yes, I know I am a lot better off than millions of other people – but it’s all relative. Someone with my problems in some third world country would be considered a king! BUT I’m not in some third world country, and my problems are relative to the area that I live. Yes, I have my health – It isn’t great, but it’s a darn site better than many other people… I really have nothing to moan about… but grant me this rant – it’s built up over the past mounting months and years and I need to let it out before I go nuts.
Bring on the next “surprise’.
P.S – Before anyone else says I haven’t spelt wrong correctly… I KNOW!!! That was a pun.
