Hnnggh :’(

I’m really upset. God, it’s so stupid and I’m so annoyed because I don’t know what to do. So, yeah, things have been a bit bad recently what with health problems and such, as many will know. You may also know that one of my happy safe places, Spud U Lije has closed down, etc. It's a stupid thing, but they made me happy. Anyway, I don’t have a ‘proper’ oven in my little kitchen, just a table top microwave with a convection element, but it’s not good enough to do a baked potato. It almost became a running joke, to get me a proper baked potato. My mother started looking at potato ovens because I know she really wants to do something kind and nice. Anyway, after almost accidentally bidding on a 120 potato capacity oven she realised that she had a halogen oven she rarely used that might be perfect t for me. So, after me saying no, she should keep it she kept insisting she’d post it. I eventually said no, ok, we’d see her before Christmas and she was under strict obstruction NOT to post it. Of course, stupid idiot spent money she didn’t have posting me her halogen oven by my Hermes. All day she’s been excited. Telling me to buy spuds in anticipation, but the delivery slot kept getting pushed back and it’s just arrived.

Of course it’s broken into a thousand pieces. It’s been packaged all perfectly with layers and layers of padding in the original box but it’s also probably been chucked on the floor from van to van or whatever. And I’ve cut myself on the glass, and of course because of the other stuff I can’t stop effing bleeding now so have had to patch up my bloody hand and my mum is all excited asking if I have time to make potatoes tonight or will it be the weekend and I don’t know whether to tell her because she will be so upset so now I’m just crying and stressed because this was so unceccesary and I do t want her to be sad, and she’s gone to stupid lengths to do a nice thing for me and all for nothing. And I felt rubbish and upset before and I feel worse now and I don’t know whether to tell her. I don’t want to, but short of photoshopping potatoes into my family photos I feel stuck.

Sorry to hear that. You’re going to have to tell her as you’ll need to make a claim against them.

On the positive side, nice people doing caring things!

Decided to lie and say it was fine and am trying to scramble one as close as possible from eBay. I feel crap doing it, but I spent the evening weighing up my conscience at not telling the truth and how utterly crap it would make her feel if knowing that when she went so far out of her way to try and do such a kind and amazing thing for me that it went all wrong. I usually have a pretty strong feeling if I’ve done the right thing or not, but I actually don’t know.

Decided to give my face fuzz a quick trim this morning. As I am terrible at this, I am now clean shaven.

Except! When driving in to work, I realised that i have missed a tiny little patch of hair right under one of my nostrils. So I had to go to the Student shop and buy a razor.

My face is cold. :(

My gran passed away yesterday. She'd been housebound for a while now and under full-time care, in between being in and out of hospital. The latest infection was just too much for her, though there wasn't much pain. I got the call when I came out from seeing Star Wars last night. It came as a bit of a shock, but not unexpected. I honestly thought she'd keep going until her upcoming 90th. I've been in a bit of a stupor all day as a result. Anyway, I'll be off back to the family nest on Wednesday. It'll be a bit of a strange Christmas but I'll try and be on here for my general sanity.

Bless the lot of you. xxx

Thanks guys. The little 'un Seth will be up on Friday with his agreeable toddler-nephew-based nonsense, so that'll help some I'm sure.

Mrs TheVision was just involved in a car accident. Luckily no one was hurt so that's the main thing.

A car pulled in front of her on a duel carriage way and slammed his brakes on. She went into the back of him and the car behind my wife went into her so 3 cars involved in total. The couple in the car behind were really nice though and stuck around until I turned up.

There's a fair bit of damage to our car though. Annoying but never mind.

Sounds like a deliberate accident to try and claim compensation. Was there a few people in the car ahead?

That was my initial thought but it was only one guy and it was a brand new car so I'm doubting it now. I just think he wasn't a very good driver.
