FFS Friday - Heidi, a chippie, and the flu

  • It's been a few weeks since my last confession. FFS.
  • I suspect when I sleep more I'll be able to whinge more. FFS.
  • Millie has had a cold/cough/conjunctivitis for 10 days. FFS.
  • After two days of sitting on her to put eyedrops in her eyes, I gave up on the chemist's approval. FFS.
  • Guess who got a cold and conjunctivitis on Tuesday? FFS.
  • I've never wished my Mum and my in-laws lived around the corner as fervently as I have this week. FFS.
  • Millie averaged a tantrum every 10 minutes yesterday. That average includes the time that she was sleeping, therefore silent, therefore not upset. FFS.
  • I have used my Caps Lock Voice and Caps Lock Eyes for too many days in a row and I'm emotionally wrung out. FFS.
  • Millie was sufficiently recovered to go back to daycare on Wednesday. At 6pm Tuesday her carer let me know that her daughter had gastro and she wasn't working on Wednesday. I almost cried. FFS.
  • It's been raining and I have no rain cover for the pram. We haven't been walking for a week. FFS.
  • This contributes to my grumpy pants. FFS.
  • Pippa Jane is delightful and gorgeous and won't let me out of her sight. FFS.
  • Whilst cooking a roast for dinner with friends last week the oven made a funny noise and got cooler. I started frantically googling 'Silverside roast in oven died can I use pressure cooker?'. Yes, you can. NO FFS.
  • An element also stopped working a few months ago. FFS.
  • The electrician finally returned my call and told me it wasn't worth fixing. FFS.
  • I procrastinated for a week until Mr S said 'Dude. What are you doing? WE DON'T HAVE AN OVEN. Can you just buy another one please?' I said 'I don't think we can afford it.' And then I realised that thanks to my super budgeting skills and YNAB, we can. NO FFS.
  • It's the first time we've bought a major appliance without going into debt. It feels REALLY good. NO FFS.

  • Her name is Heidi and she's beautiful. NO FFS.
  • Why, pray tell is she in the dining room?
    Well. The old stove was 530mm wide. The gap is 541mm. Heidi's specs were 540mm. The man in Harvey Norman measured her and said she was 545mm. Our sparky and our chippie suspected it'd be ok. (see where this is going?)
  • Heidi has too much junk in her trunk and doesn't fit.
  • The chippie is hopefully coming tomorrow to amend my benchtops. FFS.
  • If I ever meet the people that built my house I want to shake them. Hard. There's not one aspect of this house that is built conventionally. Remember the three false walls that had to be put in the bathroom last year so we could tile? The bathroom pipes that have NO squeeze room underneath the house? The septic tank that was concreted over? FFS. FFS. FFS.
  • Heidi has a double oven. NO FFS.
  • She's a very expensive yet beautiful addition to my sewing room right now. FFS.
Is it wine time yet?
