Aggghhhh I want to go to work!

I've been house cleaning and gardening for 2 weeks; this is in anticipation of getting a job and being away from the house for a goodly whack of the day!  Of course I don't have a job yet and I'm only looking with one eye (and that is barely open!) but I've got several people that are helping me so I'm going to wait and see what pans out there...


I quite like what I've done outside; in the rain!  I bought an old dressing table for $5, and I've made it into a planter.  I also got rid of the gravel from that area and I've put soil and grass seeds down!  Of course I had to put the wire down...  Sharpie would dig it up if I didn't!

And as for the Squeeze...  He sat inside on the computer while I did all the back breaking work and then came inside to cook a roast lamb! lol

So I reckon I've about another week or so of cleaning up and beautifying! Then what..?

Spring cleaning in winter...

Well the spring cleaning continues; helped by the fact that unlike anywhere that it is actually spring, it's colder than a witches tit here at the moment!

This morning I got up at seven with the Squeeze. While he showered I made breakfast then I took Sharpie for a long walk through the cemetery (freezing my butt off).

I came home to the second day of cleaning frenzy...

I'll admit there is plenty to do around here. So far I've put a vertical herb garden in out the back and I've finished 2 rooms - and I mean completely finished with reorganising furniture etc and it looks good!

I still have the oven to clean... the fridge... but in a week or so; when I'm finished... I'll be ready for work again!

Well... Life goes on!

This was my first day without a job.  Okay; not nearly as bad as I thought!

I've been cleaning outside... And it is hard work!  I think it will take me the rest of the week to clean up/out anything out there; skipping the rain :)  Mind you, I created a vertical herb garden today!

Next week, I'll do inside (which isn't bad but all cupboards the fridge and the oven need cleaning!) so it will take time!

I think as long as I have a job by next month, I'll be okay!  And the house will be spotless!

Finishing on a high note...

Boy; this week is really doing it for me!  Not only did my lawyer tell me that I couldn't sue, it seems I got retrenched from my measly 3 hours a day job...  I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I should cry. But I won't.
Adversity; I can work well with putting my life back together again.
I have had plenty of practice.

Time to get real...

I've been living a pipe dream...  Just a little bit of one.

My lawyer and everyone I've gone to see, has agreed with me; my brain damage was due to my being sent home too early and/or not being admitted or seen quickly when my daughter took me back.

Well that was until earlier this week when a neurosurgeon said that no one was to blame.  So in effect; after three years it is all over! 

It doesn't really matter because knowing how things work out, I thought something would fall out of the sky to crush that idea!  My life!  Frick.  What have you got to do to catch a break! lol

So... It is re-evaluate my life!!!

Sure would have been fun to jet set around!!
