bye bye june

so june was an arse. so pretty pleased that now it’s over and we can all move on and into july. it’s been one thing after another, seriously this month has pushed every boundary and limit. this month has seen a substantial increase in grey hairs. a busy busy month indeed.

so we start the month with nanny minnie having a fall and was taken into hospital. it was over the bank holiday weekend so getting to the hospital to see her was difficult as all the bridges were closed for the diamond jubliee. she lives north of the river and we are south. she hurt herself pretty bad most of her back was bruised.

then the stuff happened. the stuff i couldn’t and still can’t talk about. the stuff was pretty full on. the stuff got sorted and we all moved on.

one of my big suppliers delivered the news that they couldn’t supply anymore. bloody economic climate. work went bonkers. right at the time that we were signing all of SS13 off so double head fuck.

nanny minnie left hospital and went home but she wasn’t good and still in a lot of pain. she shouldn’t have gone home, i suspect her bed was needed.

nanny minnie had another fall. sometime in the night she can’t remember. she spent the night on the floor as she couldn’t pick herself up. luckily my dad phoned her in the morning  and she managed to reach the phone on her beside. from her mumblings he worked out floor and he called for ambulance from spain. good job the hospital sent her home.

another big supplier went into insolvency. oh joy. work went even more bonkers. you have to laugh if not cry.

forgot to pay congestion charge, twice.

car broke on the way to pick ronnie up from nursery. managed to get car to nursery in lots of tiny journeys, before it kept conking out. had to wait 2 hours for RAC. mmmm not happy times. car is still broken.

locked myself out of the house.

it rained all month.

so june was an arse.

    Sounds like you’ve had a right old rubbish time of it! I hope July is a much better month for you, your nanny, business and car. June was also rubbish for me too … so good riddence.

    It never rains but it pours. (geddit? geddit?)
    But July is going to be a whole new level of awesomeness, especially for the HPMcQ household. I know, you know xx

    June was a weird one for us. Half of it in the sunny Barbados and half of it dealing with rain and close friends’ troubles. May July be better for all x
