One grumpy woman

You know that feeling where you're just fed up with things and just want to be left alone? That was me yesterday. I think I was just feeling crowded - particularly by Chickie but also by my cats - some days none of them will leave me be.

Yesterday, Chickie got up early, as he always does (gah), so J got up and left to go on his hike (he's been doing that the last few Sundays), while I tried to sleep a little longer. Chickie is usually ok to eat his toast and watch tv, but he seems to have this thing against sleep (ie: why would anyone want to sleep in?), so he'll come in every ten minutes or so. I had that yesterday, as well as the cats either jumping up on my bedside chest of drawers, knocking stuff off, or kneading my stomach (aka clawing me to death).

So, I got out of bed on the wrong side...

During the day, Chickie kept asking me if he could kiss me. Nothing wrong with that - except he wouldn't kiss me, he kept licking me! It was driving me nuts. When I refused to go near him when he asked for kisses, he started wrestling with me or sneaking up and licking me, then running off laughing. Ugh!

Combine all that with vague plans, to get out of the house and do something, that came to naught (J's mother's computer was playing up and it took longer than expected to fix) and you had one very grumpy woman in this house.

Luckily J had already organised to take me out last night. We had dinner at a Japanese restaurant and then went and saw a Bollywood movie - Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. I was feeling much better by the end of the night.

Then today, a nice undisturbed sleep-in, a relaxed day of doing little more than watching the latest Doctor Who (velcro - did you see it? Can't wait for the next one) and messing about on the computer, has put things right in the caramaena world.

So, how was your weekend?

I had a highly productive weekend, but today my pete went to Canberra for work and I don't like that!

I know what you mean; I'm having one of those days today. Poor Mr Man, it's not his fault, but everything he says or does is wrong today. I'm just so grouchy!

I love my kids but they can get on your last nerve can't they?! Ha!

We had a nice relaxing weekend.

I'm glad your weekend improved. Our weekend was good, but not very productive.

Ew! to being licked! Glad you're over your grumps now

You can certainly have one too many licks. I reckon some days you can have too many sensible kissed. Move away from the mum.

One thing that annoys Donna is when she goes to kiss me and I lick her on the tip of the nose :)

Speaking of the good Doctor, what did you think of Capt Jack and Co last night.

I hate days like that, when you just feel so crowded in so I'm glad to hear that it got better.

Yes, I did watch the Dr Who, it was good and fortunately not as scary nor did it have statues in it which is good as I live between two graveyards.

I hate that feeling!

That was the scariest Dr Who I've ever seen! We've been speculating on how they're going to get out of this recent one.

*waves to Caramaena! Glad to hear that you're feeling less grumpy.

Thanks everyone :) Much happier now. I hope everyone who had a not so great weekend is having better times now!

tracey - hope Pete's back soon.

steve - ew! Loved Torchwood, though I'm wondering about their fascination with standing on top of buildings etc is all about.

velcro - two graveyards? eep! Don't blink ;)

zaz - I'm wondering that too. Can't wait!

I am on a 3 day Grumpy!!

I'm wondering if the standing on rooftops thing is just a good way to show off Cardiff.
