        Thanks Wendy, I'm trying to see the half full glass - gives me a chance to start a fresh I suppose

          Good luck Laurie. I daresay you'll come back with more wrong with you than when you went in.


          It's Benjabub's birthday today. Bless him, he's still a little poorly so won't be a very exciting one ... rant alert...

          Spoiler:
          Yet again, it seems that he's not important enough for some of his cousins to even bother to so much as drop a note on Facebook to say happy birthday to him. I wouldn't mind if it wasn't that it's also my sister-in-law - i.e. their mum's birthday. She's been dead three years and she's got happy birthday messages from them on facebook this morning. There's also one more today in the family (well almost, after their wedding anyway) and she's got birthday messages from them... and two more birthdays tomorrow and Friday and it's always been a bit of a joke/laugh about how expensive the month is. It's not like it's hard to forget. Apparently it is. I'd love to say it's still early in the day but, this the same thing happened last year.
          Maybe I am just expecting too much of people because I always make the effort to send cards and send them a little note of Facebook and such. I just assume other people are as thoughtful. Maybe it's time I removed them all from Facebook and reclaimed it for fun and friendship. I keep saying I'm going to so perhaps it's time.


          I know this really should not bother me as much as it does and, maybe if it wasn't symptomatic of an overall attitude towards me and Benjabubs I'd be a little less frustrated about it. I'm not really in a good place at the moment, I could do with some nurturing but just feel like I'm constantly having to pick up everyone else's screwed up lives and help them sort things out... and it's disappointing when those who claim they care and worry about me then can't even manage the tiny acts of human kindness that makes it all worthwhile.


          Sorry, I had a bad day yesterday and felt all teary and desperate most of it (bloody winter has a lot to answer for) and not much sleep last night as a result so I'm probably not thinking rationally anyway... someone slap me out of my self pity!




          Anyhoo... the Wii is set up and going, there's a Yoshi birthday cake in the kitchen courtesy of my lovely stepson (lemon drizzle with raspberry jam as ordered by Ben ) and I'm looking forward to an evening playing with the new toy and scoffing cake. Sod everyone else!
          Happy Birthday Ben!!

          Big hugs to Ben and Cags!


          Thanks to Pengyn, SamJackShipLover and Mala for the sig.

            *huggles Sarai* You may not have lost everything completely. It's there and maybe a computer specialist would be able to retrieve it. Depends on whether you have the important stuff backed up elsewhere and how much that would cost I suppose.

                Thanks hun *huggles back* I have the most important files - documents and pictures saved on my computer as well so fingers crossed that doesn't fail before I can buy a new drive but I've lost everything else. Tbh sending to someone would probably cost more and be more hassle than just buying a new drive and starting again with everything, see totally glass half full - its my new mantra

                *extra squishy huggles you and Ben just coz*

                  Gosh I haven't been here in *counts* forever.

                  *huggles all the poorly Woohoos and the ones having bad days*

                  *congratuates Sarai on her glass half full attitude* Can we rub elbows? I need a bit of that attitude myself these days.

                  *Hopes Jumble is away from the thread for fun reasons and not because she's still hurting. It's so quiet around here without her.*

                  Happy Birthday Ben! Your GW family loves you and hopes you've had a stellar birthday!

                  *leaves more huggles for everyone in her wake back into lurkerdom*

                    Yay for the half full glass, though

                      Nad, look after the Spencers

                      *hiding under a blanket* Brrrrrr, so very cold here. I'm never, ever moving into a place that has storage heaters again because they "run out of heat" by 6pm, and that's just pretty useless to me.

                      Okay, grumble over. Just hiding in here where it's warmer though.

                          Belated Happy Birthday Ben! I hope you had an amazing day and got lots of gifts!

                          I just started working at my dad's company for my thesis(could be any company so made it easy for myself) so busy with that!

                            Yes, very sore and having no fun at all

                            My girls are both in trouble and I can't do a thing about it, so my heart is as sore as the rest of me atm. February isn't looking much better than January so far

                              Aaaah big hugs Jumble *squishy squashy huggles*
                              It's not nice. Wrap yourself up warm if you can and ease those bruises. I don't have the cure for brusied heart I'm afraid - damn well wish did - I hear huggles do help though so accept loads from me (I'm wearing a big wooly squishy jumper today too so extra huggly) I hope the sharing of some of the burden a little can ease some of the turmoil.


                              And yes, Wendy Move South!


                              Nola that second one... Perfect!


                              Glass half full Sarai I like it. I did wonder if it might work out more costly to repeair than to just scrap. Think of it as an excellent excuse to get a newer bigger one.


                              Well thank you all for the wonderful birthday messages for Benjabubbly, yes, even those in reverse - which did make me giggle and think of Martin's birthday video from 2011 with the backwards singing.
                              I've kind of put things into perspective a bit after a decent night's sleep for the first time in weeks; needless to say after Laurie posted on my wall on FB a few people came up with "oh happy birthday" messages and I had a couple of texts. It's patently obvious they forgot and ONLY remembered because of seeing it on my wall. It's very telling that friends, here and elsewhere on other forums - some of whom have never or barely met Ben - have been more celebratory of the occasion that some of his own family. That said, I also recognise that the ones who really count did remember; i.e. my parents, my brothers, Ben's brothers and their mum (Charles' first wife) and one cousin. The rest just...well, guess I should stop caring so much about it and about them. Gonna save me a fortune in presents come Christmas I guess... glass half full, see...

                                *buries self in Cags' huggly jumper*

                                It's dumb really - I'm trying to convince Jo that it's not all her fault and she's not a useless mother, whilst feeling exactly the same myself for not being able to fix things for her and Suz Once a mother, always a mother

                                I missed Ben's birthday too I have a couple of pressies for him - should have had the foresight to send them up with Oma and the creme brulee I hope he had a good day - the cake sounds Awesome!
