Grumpy........don't ask!!



In a bid to write about 7 things that make me grumpy I, in a moment of madness, asked my husband to give me some examples. Hmmm, probably best not go there so I will come up with my own list!

1. Twitter is being a real twit at the moment, get it sorted, enough said.
 
2. My internet service/telephone/TV service provider is very reliable, we rarely have problems. This is just as well because when we do there is no point phoning them, I may just get a shovel and dig up the cables myself.



3. My husband (yes, he will be offended if I don't mention him!!) has left a buttery/jammy knife on the bread board every morning for thirteen years and three months (give or take). This is instead of walking the 3 feet to the dishwasher and putting it in. This is what I do every morning, for the last 13 years and 3 months. 

4. Lack of sleep makes me grumpy. Need I say more?

5. People, aka parents, of other 8 year olds not responding to birthday party invites. Please, if you are reading, always respond. Otherwise how is the poor harassed mother supposed to know how much food to get? Don't just show up with a smile. Even worse, don't just not show up.

6. Lack of coffee, yes, I am an addict. No. 4 would be a lot worse without coffee.



7. My neighbours ass framed in my sittingroom window as I tried to breastfeed my baby. He used to, kindly, weed our flowerbed for us. In order to give me privacy he did so with his back to our large sittingroom window, but he suffered from builders bum too. In a fit of borderline hysteria I arranged to concrete out the front garden and build a wall. Problem solved!

Now, Patchwork Bird can knock me off the list of things that make her grumpy. Sorry I took so long.

I will leave this meme open to anyone who would like to join in...............or maybe not because I really am too nosey for that:

Jean from Planet Outreach

Tara from Tazzymania






and YOU!


PS My husband proof read this post last night and, for the first time ever, put the knife in the dishwasher. Result!!

Thanks for the tag. I am looking forward to doing it. Should be fun! I'll make sure to put some of Mr Foodie's 'bad' habits on it. Hopefully it will work for me too!

Fran said...

Laughing VERY hard at your neighbor right now.

I can see how the builder's bum view spoilt your breastfeeding experience! I saw one on a bike this morning, really not nice :(

Marylin said...

Oooh I like this one! Thanks for the tagging... I'll get right on it! :)

Candace said...

Jen, that is so funny! You should have rapped on the window and made a "pull up your pants" motion! I bet he would have fallen over!

The Cat Lady said...

my favourite of your blogs so far.. made me giggle! can't imagine you ever being grumpy though! and what is it with men and the small details?? x

MommyToTwoBoys said...

Hysterical! Especially the neighbor's butt crack!

We are both such huge coffee addicts. One of these days we WILL meet up for coffee.

And doesn't your husband get tired of eating the same breakfast everyday! I would get very bored if I didn't choose new things everyday.

Patchwork Bird said...

Thanks for taking the tag up - it's very therapeutic! I'm laughing so hard at your poor husband but 13 years and 3 months! I have the same problem with picking socks off the floor in our house but I think if I had 13 years of it you'd have to commit me to an asylum!

Jean said...

This is brilliant...really made me laugh. Thanks for the tag, but how can i stop at 7???????? Watch this space my darling XXX

Petunia said...

Great post Jen. Laughing my head off at your seven :) xx

Clive said...

We have the same problem here with the bread knife - can't understand why he never ever puts it into the dishwasher!!

My husband has a whole set of tools..but instead uses steak knives..so for years I have found steak knives left casually on the floor in the garden..on window sills...maybe I ought to get him to read this? Life w/out coffee...well it wouldn't be worth much...:)

sandrine said...

I'm with you on number 3! My husband regularly has a late snack and in the morning I find a dirty knife and some crumbs on the kitchen counter. And sometimes he doesn't get to put the butter or cheese back in the fridge!
Also, is that really a picture of your neighbour's arse?!! Awesome!

Irish Mammy said...

Love this and I share so share most of your frustrations, I mis-read your twitter I thought I was getting a snickers. Disappointed! (only joking)

Magic Mummy said...

Number 5 is my absolute pet hate - why do people not have the courtesy to even bother to respond aaagh.

I've tagged you over at mine ;-)

diney said...

Is that really your neighbour's bum?!!
Good way to get your husband to change his habit of a lifetime - I have a few of those I should post!

Marie said...

No way, is that HIS bum? ROFLMAO

Taz said...

Brilliant! Challenge accepted!

Jen said...

@Jean, Taz, Foodie, Marylin, Metajugglemum, IrishMammy delighted ye are going to join in:)

@Sandrine, Candace, Diney & Marie, noooooo, that is my not my neighbours bum. Seriously, he is about 70 and his bum really isn't as attractive as that, I just didn't want to traumatise you all the way I have been lol.

@Foodie, Clive, Kathleen & Patchwork Bird, there is always something, its genetically imprinted!!

@MagicMummy, Geekymummy, Petunia, BlueSky, Marie, CatLady, MTTB, thank you :D
