Blimey, it's been ages since I've posted on here. I really must be more mindful. Would surely be better to rant like a tit on here rather than on Facebook since that seems to just piss people off!
Anyway... as ever, my life is pretty much the same. I'm currently pursuing an Employment Tribunal against the dick heads that offered me a job then took it away cuz of sickness absence from a job I had 8 years ago and then had the f*cking cheek to say they never offered me the job in the first place. I'm looking forward to throwing the book at them and in particular getting the woman who is doing all the lying on the stand and seeing if they truly pay her enough to lie in a court of law! I'm thinking not!
Other than that, battling with my landlord/estate agent over his wanting to raise the rent cuz he finally got someone to do a half ass job on the damp in the kitchen 2 years after I reported it. And then only cuz my son has developed asthma due to the exposure to the damp in his bedroom. Having been shafted by Estate Agents before, I'm not having it this time. If he doesn't like it, he can chuck me out - at least the council have to house me then!
The ex hasn't paid any maintenance for 6 months and hasn't seen our son for longer. I hear he's being sued and has the tax man after him. Well - karma's a bitch is all I can say! Hope his new wife is willing to put up with him skulking around the house and sponging off her! She's welcome to him! haha!
Christmas dinner overload is coming up over the next couple of weeks. Joyous! Spend out a load of money for a glorious anti-climax on the actual day cuz it's all over in about half an hour and there's bugger all worth watching on the telly! I'd rather stay in bed with my battery powered friend!
X-Factor final tonight - not that I'm watching. My prediction is that the only 'contestant' to make any impact on the musical world following the show will be One Direction cuz they'll be riding the 'Bieber' wave of paedo-pop.
Watching Strictly as per usual at this time of year. I'm behind Matt Baker on this one. And I want him or Pamela Stephenson to win. James Jordan's choreography has been ON FIRE this season. Everyone wants Kara & Artem to win but shagging your dance partner doesn't necessarily win you the competition - ask Ali Baastian! Kara always makes mistakes in the routines and it is overlooked by the judges cuz they think she's so awesome. I thought it was supposed to be about skill and development and not just looking pretty? They criticise routines that are technically brilliant and danced well but pick holes in the smallest mistakes yet Kara gets away with it. Has Artem got some friends we don't know about who've put thumbscrews on the judges? Is Roman Abramovic a good friend of his? Who knows! But I'm sorry, Kara is a good dancer, yes, but she's not precise enough. She's like Alesha was - good but never quite getting to perfection. Pamela should win really because she's had 2 perfect scores and she's done absolutely brilliantly in pretty much ALL her dances throughout the competition. And WHY is Alesha Dixon a judge? She knows f&ck all about dancing! I suppose she needs the money since her singing career is in the toilet. They should have someone who actually KNOWS what they're talking about on there - at least Len, Bruno and Craig know about dancing. She just did a bit of it a few years back and she probably couldn't tell you what half the technical terms are. I mean she came up with a comment on 'armology of the dance' yesterday. WHAT?! Someone needs to see sense and give Karen Hardy her job!
Right - rant over... I'm off to enjoy Armstrong & Miller's RAF Pilots isn't it, Blood? And shit like that....
- I'm a stay at home mum (yes it IS a non-profit industry - I've never had a penny for doing it and I don't know any mums who have!) to Aston who's 2 years old. I have 2 pet rabbits - Malcolm and Jimmy. I'm seperated from my husband and now live back in my hometown of Sheerness, Isle of Sheppey, Kent UK. I have also lived in London and West Sussex so I've knocked about the South East of England a bit! I'm a pagan and am inspired by natural things and love anything that's not been tampered with too much. I love watching rugby and football and my fave teams are Bath Rugby (cuz Matt Stevens plays for them! lol) and Fulham FC.
