Urgh! I surrender.

I give up, I cannot do this anymore. I am applying for a transfer through the Housing AUthority. And if I don't get one, we are moving to Mum's. And then we will save like mad (even madder than already if we are at Mum's) and get the Hell out of Dodge.

This is not ideal, either way. I hate the fact that I am going to be moving because of the nutjob, but I am at the point where there is no other option. My mental health is shot to shit, and my physical health will soon follow. Mr14 is a mess, he is scared witless of this guy.

This is really just the final straw. Mr14 has been running feral for a while, and it's not going to improve. This place is like Feralville on steroids - the only things to do are drink, smoke, do drugs, have sex, drive like lunatics if you have a car, and maybe, if you are motivated, play a sport once a week. Oh, and knock stuff off, and pick fights with everyone you can. Not ideal, and it's getting worse. The majority of the kids in our area are his age, and they are truly feral - no parental control at all, parents who encourage the above behaviour, so what hope do we have?!

I am well aware that everywhere has these issues, but they are generally in smaller pockets. The good areas/people here are the smaller pockets. Very small, and often very isolated, because they are surrounded by ferals.

I have accepted my UTAS offer, now I need to enrol. I still have NFI what I want my specialisation to be - I thought I had to pick between 2 streams, but no, I have to pick from the whole of bluddy UTAS!!! Not helpful at all people - too many choices.

I still have a truckload of mailing to do from when we were away - I am just not able to go into town by myself, and I don't want The Mister to have to sit in the car waiting for half an hour while I mail out - might have to get the Little Family to come with me, Miss and I can take Mouse and go in, Mr can watch the car.

My new washing machine was delivered today - it is currently adorning the kitchen, as the old one is not being picked up until Thursday. It is so pretty, and I can't wait to use it.

Got orthotics for my work shoes today - the shoes themselves are in good nick, but the pain in my feet has been horrid. So far, so good, although I am wearing them in my sneakers, not my work shoes. But i am already noticing the difference. Sadly, orthotics and ballet flats are not compatible.


  1. Yay! The new washing machine is very exciting!

    I think you've made the right decision about moving. As annoying as it is to have to move, you'll be so much better off not having to deal with the psycho neighbour.


  2. Thanks babe. It's at least 6 months off, but it's a focus point, and I need that right now.

    Take care

  3. Hey, Rosie, I can't remember why I haven't been following you! :)

    Talking about shoes, I wear MBT whenever I need to stand all day on my feet. They work wonders. :)

    How was your trip? Sorry I couldn't reply on Adore, I think I can't really do much there at the moment as I'm still new... :(

  4. Hey there! Yeah, I had the BEST time, really must post about it.

    I have yet to find a reatailer for MBT here (hello boganville int he sticks) but I am working on it!
