The Monday peeve

Hi! Well Paula from light motifs is the host of the Monday peeve! Its where you get to vent about something on a Monday. So here I go with my vent for this Monday, but its actually Tuesday here now.

My vent is about workmen! I am so peeved at the ones who came into my house today!

Why do they think its ok to mess up the whole place and not bother to clean it after themselves? It irks me!

Today, 2 workmen came into my home to install a carbon monoxide alarm. They messed up my kitchen, moved everything, and then didn bother to tell me. So I was looking for coffee, my sweeteners, and I couldn’t find them because they’d been moved. Ug!

Then one guy was fiddling with my heating system, and he turned off the gas at the wall, so my heating wouldn’t work. I mean WTF? Don’t touch it dude! Why do you even need to be going near it?

All he was doing was installing an alarm, which uses the electric system, not the damn heat! To say I was peeved is an understatement! I was so annoyed!

I did put everything right, but at first I didn’t even know things were so messy! I though then that they’d left my curtains open, but thank god they didn’t. They did however leave on my lights. Thank god they were only in my house for an hour tops! That is all I can deal with.

Well that’s me done with my vent!
Oh one more thing? They were going in and out of my fron door, and I was full sure they’d let Nitro out. Thank god though he stayed by my side, he didn’t follow them at all. Good boy, Nitro!

I am home!

I am home in my own house now. I went home an hour or so ago. Mom is here with me for a few hours. She’s doing a few things for me around my house.

The taxi driver we got wasnt a bit impressed with Nitro. Well, thats his problem, not mine. By law he has to take a guide dog. Nitro is shedding, and when he got out of the taxi he left tons of hairs on the mat. What can I do? There really is nothing I can do about it.

Now that I am home, mom is putting away my groceries for me, and then she has to take apart my old TV equipment, while she’s doing that I have to arrange for a delivery crowd to pick up the equipment on tuesday.

I put my heat on right away when I got in. The house is freezing, since there was no heat on all weekend.

Feels so good to be home! Me and Nitro are going to just relax this evening. I may face time with my friend Sarah in colorado if she’s up for that.

A surprise visit from the police

I got a surprise visit from the police this morning!

A female officer came and knocked on my door, nitro started barking, which scared me, but she rang the bell, so I answered her, and I brought Nitro to the door with me just in case! Not that he’d do anything to anyone, but you know, seeing a big dog there with me, might scare some people! And I didn’t know the lady was a police officer until she told me!

She told me that my neighbour across the street had had his car stolen last night. between 11 PM and 8 AM.

She wanted to know if I would check my CCTV to see if anyone was seen on it! I said I didn’t know how to check it myself, but that I could get my sister to do it for me.

She agreed that would be fine and she said she’d contact me again in a few days to see if I had spotted anyone on it!

Now come to think of it, I did hear a lot of dogs barking late last night, I wondered why they were barking, maybe because someone was prowling around and it unsettled them?

Its a scary thought that someone was outside my house! My neighbours house is directly across the street from mine!

I hope they catch whoever did this!

some Tilers are coming today

So the work on my shower still isnt completed. This morning two tilers are coming to put tiles on the wall. They had to rip some of them off when they were taking out the old shower. So they’ll come and put some new ones on. That means another few hours of sitting around while they work. Its so boring all the waiting around. I think I’ll stay in my bedroom this morning though. I dont feel like going into the living room. Im sure they’ll be here early. At least I hope they will. I’m really hoping when they’ve gone the electrician will come back today to finish his part too. I just want the work finished as I want to be able to have a shower. I cant go out to slimming world tonight looking like something that never saw some water. I will if I have to, but I’d rather not. I would rather be clean and presentable going out especially since I have to meet people. But we shall see what happens.


I have visitors! Unwelcome ones at that!

Guys! I am ready to totally freak out, anyone up for a lodger? Some company and a long term visitor? hahaha! 😀
I came home today and what did I see? Or more to the point its what my mom saw as we walked in my gate?
Wasps! It looks like there might be a nest! Outside my bedroom window!
Omg! I am terrified guys! Terrified of all bugs, but especially of wasps and bees!
This is my worst nightmare come true!
I had this problem last year, but I thought they’d gone! I thought they’d disappeared! My neighbour said she heard that if you buy a fake nest, and put it near where they are, that they think its a real one and dont nest there any more! But well I am not sure if that actually works or not its just what she said! She said she’d try it and if it works she’d get one for me too!
But Omg! I am like, is this actually happening? Nooo! It cant be!
I just hope I can do something quickly to get rid of them! I dont want them there all summer! I cant open my window now in case they fly in!
I am planning on calling my local council, to see if someone will come out to fix this for me! But they’re so slow! You could ring them today and they may not return a call for days! I cant wait that long!
Anyone know anything about wasps nests? It doesnt actually look like a nest, but there were about 20 of them flying around by my window today, but when mom checked she couldnt see a nest of them, so I am hoping there isnt actually a huge nest of them there. maybe its just a few of them or well I dunno, I am just hoping!
I’m so scared guys! You cannot believe how petrified of wasps I am!
I am terrified! Pray for me if you pray that I can resolve this soon!


A #whatif prompt: My ideal home!

Today’s prompt:

⛵my ideal home ⛺

Feel free to respond in your favorite way whether it be a poem, short story, photo, video . . however you best relate to the prompt. Simply post your ideas, create a ping-back and use the hashtag #whatif.

My ideal home? Now thats a hard one!
Why? Because well, I dont really kknow what I’d choose if there was no limit to where I could live!
I guess I’d like a house, with lots of bedrooms, a big playroom for the kids, a big garden for nitro, a fitted kitchen, a pool, a water fountain or a pond in the garden, a big living room open plan, a bathroom with a walk in shower.
Now I do have a walk in shower where I am living, Im not living in a house though, I am living in a bungalow, with two bedrooms, no pool, no fitted kitchen. My garden is small, and does not have a pond in it.
But I am happy where I am living now. I like it, my neighbours are nice. Thats what counts.
Material posessions dont really matter to me. As long as I have nice neighbours who care, who are there if I need them, that makes me happy.
