Would you like to be bent over a barrell


We had a phone call this morning about our settlement.  The guys who bought our place, let’s call them "wankheads", were not going to be able to make settlement on our place.

Let me put this into perspective, we have a friend coming from interstate t help us move, we have ALL of our utilities set to be cancelled on Wed/Thursday this week, we are having a truck come this afternoon so that we could start packing AND we had made plans to buy a new car which we are supposed to pick up on Friday, and to top it of we spent much of our money on a deposit for the car, a modem for the new place (before they would send it out to us) and had bought a whole bunch of lean cuisines (which are not cheap) so we basically have no money.

We then had to spend all day waiting to find out if our conveyancer was able to get us into our new house as orignally organised on Thursday, and finally by 4pm we fond out we could.  However we are now being charged penalty rates because settlement has to be delayed for a week.  We are going to be passing that cost onto the wankheads, so we have to charge them penalty rates.

We now won’t get paid out until next Thursday, but we are able to move into the house we have not even paid for.  To top of that, Wankheads what access to our house on friday – BEFORE HEY HAVE EVEN SETTLED!!!!!!!!!! 

To say I am pissed probably dosnt even come close. had we any glass stuff unpacked it would have been broken early this morning,….I am still livid, even now that we can still move, I am annoyed that TWO FUCKING DAYS BEFORE SETTLEMENT THEY DECIDE TO TELL US!!!


Soย CLose

 I can’t wait for next week to be over then i can get back to my blogging and obsessions!!

This having to pack and clean and organise stuff is stuff annoying me since i cant update!!

I am finaly on holidays!! YAYAYAYAY!!!

We move house on Thursday – I am at home doing the last of the washing and getting our clothes/toiletries/misc living requirements packed away and leaving only bare essentials out.

D is on holidays this afternoon, so neither of us will need much more than a tshirt ot two and some pants left out, a hairbrush and our toothbrushes is all we need now ๐Ÿ™‚

I am also waiting for the glazier to come out so I cna’t go to the shops or anything until he has been.

Hope everyone is well…chat later!


 Minxee – Sorry my love I keep meaning to email you and respond, but have just been so busy I keep getting distracted by boxes and cleaning etc.

I am not affected – YET – they are not up to my level in the restructure, but all indicators are saying we won’t be affected and i am not holding my breathe – my role and my comparative roles are very different and considering we seem to be going their way with most things, I am not sure we will be suitable or needed in the new structure.  We should be finding out in a few weeks I suppose.

I am sorry to hear you were affected, but yes, there are plenty of jobs out there to go fo, just apply and go nuts – I know I am…not likely to get any of the roles, but heck, it is well worth a shot ๐Ÿ™‚  And the worst they can do is say no.  Seriously Minxee, if at worst case you take a redundancy package you will walk away with enough to keep you covered until you find a new job.  You are highly employable, so don’t stress about finding another job, you will get snaffled ๐Ÿ™‚

I am glad to hear your jaw is getting better ๐Ÿ™‚  Just make sure you don’t push yourself too hard.

Onto other things, I was hoping to resign from my workplace this Thursday. but was given some news which has forced my hand and I have to hang out a little longer.  So it looks like I am back to hanging out for September now, but I am also applying for jobs, as many as I can handle.  We had our half yearly reviews and as usual I was given some bullshit story about how well I am doing – HOWEVER – they have to mark harshly mud year and because I am considered "intimidating" by my manager my scores are low….no one else in the team finds me intimidating – in fact – in the 30 years I have been alive – intimidating is not a word I have ever heard used in relation to me.

Anyway So I decided they could get fucked, they could shove their half year review up their arse and they can find another fucking goat to play with.  I am done.  I am not going to go above and beyond anymore, I am not going to push myself to be better than the rest and I will not push myself to be better than average.  Yup they can go and stick it…so here’s to finding a new job – fingers crossed it happens soon!

On the moving front, I have called up the utilities today and organised a new phone number and internet and all that jazz, have also organised for our stuff to be cancelled etc.

We had the junk guys come back again and take a second load of rubbish – the house is now bare.  The garage is empty, the house is empty and I have maybe – 2 more boxes to pack. Just some general stuff floating around the house, you know random things you find as you are cleaning out other rooms etc.

Then I just have to spend the next week cleaning everything from top to bottom as well as I can and make sure it isn’t horrid when we move.

We also bought a new TV and cabinet on the weekend, my mum put it on her GE interest free card for us coz they were having a 40% sale and we saved almost $1000 on the TV we wanted to buy ๐Ÿ™‚  BARGAIN!!  So we will be paying her back once we have the settlement sorted out.  So we didn’t really buy it per se ๐Ÿ™‚ heheh

We will be looking at buying chesterfields as well for the new place, but likely after we have actually moved, as we have just got far too much on our plates right now.

Anyway, time to hang out some more washing ๐Ÿ™‚  

slowly getting thereย :D

 We started on the garage yesterday, and can I say EWW GROSS!!  Far too many spiders and bugs and shit in there :/  

Our garage was so bad, we actually couldn’t even walk into it for al the crap in there.  So we have started to neaten it al out and make little piles of bags and boxes.  It is much better this morning than what it was yesterday, however still a long way to go.

We are considering the idea that we may actually need to hire a SKIP as WELL as the truck that is coming next week to take all the "junk".  I am not 100% sure of what exactly they take, ie general household garbage makes up about 50% of the stuff they need to take.  if they can’t take it, a skip it will have to be.  Not money I wanted to spend, actually, not money we have available to spend, but we shall have to find a way I guess.

We have a month before the move and from next week everything will be a little easier to judge how much more we have to go.

Today we are going to move the "junk" to the front verandah – people can take it if they like, but we want it out of the house so we can see what we are left with. and obviously make it easier for the junk guys to get what they need done.

Not much else going on in the world, been so focused on getting the packing/cleaning done so have been refusing any outings or meet ups, I feel guilty if we are out that we are not doing our best to get everything done before the time it becomes urgent.

I am so going to need a holiday once we are finished moving!!  Which will probably be in September and will be a nice long relaxed 2 month holiday, well that’s what I am hoping, although I would like to keep my LSL for a trip overseas.  2 months isn’t a hugely long time I know, and D wouldn’t be able to get time off easily, but I would rather we go overseas for a month or more to really make the most of it…..if that makes sense?

Anyway I am off!! need coffee this early in the morning

Updates ofย sort

 So I have just been so busy with house stuff I have not had a chance to scratch my nose.

Anyway, the house stuff is travelling along, we were supposed to pay the deposit tomorrow, but that has ben delayed by our useless  mortgage broker…I will be writing to ME once this is approved and we have the cheque in our hands.  Let’s just say when people don’t read the information provided or call people back, it’s fucking annoying.  I do however understand how our advisers feel ๐Ÿ™‚

We have been approved for the security substitution, which means we don’t do a new mortgage we just chance the houses that the mortgage is secured against ๐Ÿ™‚  So that is kind of cool.

We are getting some extra money on the house as well, to buy some new furniture and pay off my parents etc ๐Ÿ™‚  So in essence we will actually be completely free of extra obligations.  ONly MOrtgage and car loan..which at some point in the future we may decide to consolidate, but we have no credit cards, we will have no outstanding debts etc…now to actually start saving!!!  YIPPPEE!!

Aside from that I have some sort of bug which started yesterday – D and I both started having stomach pains yesterday afternoon and I am suffering such severe nausea  I can barely move.  The Dr reckons to take until Wednesday off…I should be right to go to work tomorrow, well I fucking hope so anyway…I hate not going to work due to sickness…we don’t exactly have the best work environment for it…especially since I seem to be the only one leaving things in the past where they belong….over 2 years ago – I was off sick for 6 mths…..but poeple keep bringing it up – what annoys me – is why does ANYONE except my direct manager even know I WAS sick….dumb fuckers!

Anyway enough about that ๐Ÿ˜€  Not much else has been going on, we have just been organising the house stuff which is taking every moment of our time since the guy doesn’t call us back nor does he make any effort to communicate what is happening until it is too late….
Will post more later as it is time to run ๐Ÿ˜€

Hope you are all doing ewll, hugs and kisses I have been reading just not commenting ๐Ÿ™‚ I am thinking of you all though
