Little things that make me happy now I'm an adult

Posted on August 28 2016

After last week's post about things that annoy me, and reading all your comments - I started to feel a bit better about my raging moments. I realised that I'm not alone. I'm not the only intolerant psychopathic lunatic around - there are heaps of us! I love it!

My week started off ok. Pretty uneventful, just the usual home duties etc. I went to see Bad Moms - again. Ate too much popcorn, a bag of maltesers that I bought from Woolies beforehand because I'm a massive tightarse, drank a litre of Pepsi and laughed. Laughed and laughed and laughed. And not just because it's so bloody funny, but because I went with 8 of my best girlfriends, and it was just bloody amazing.

Then Thursday hit. I woke up with swollen lips, popcorn kernels in my teeth that I think are still there, dehydration to the point of unconsciousness and a bursting bladder. Bloody popcorn. I don't know why I eat so much. Actually yes I do because it's friggin delicious. Anyway, where was I?

Thursday. Daughter comes in holding her ear. I thought 'ah bugger it, they can all stay home'. I had visions of pj's and dressing gowns, movies and cuddles. Maybe even more popcorn.

I made a coffee, hummed a little tune, went to pop some toast in the toaster and BAM. No power. My first reaction was 'sh*t! I didn't pay the bill' - then I remembered. Planned outage. Most people would have gotten that text last week like I did and put a little reminder in the phone, and perhaps figured out some clever way of salvaging the fridge full of food.

Not me.

The kids were LOST. They had had no idea what to do. They had no wifi or TV. The water in the fridge doesn't work when the power is off, and they whined that we were going to die without water until I reminded them we have a tap.

We kind of stood around awkwardly looking at each other. We were like strangers at a singles soirée. It was weird as.

I ended up getting out some paper and pens and we did some drawing. That lasted 15 minutes max. Toddler relentlessly pointed the remote at the TV roaring 'BUZZ! WOODY!'. We all kept flipping light switches and trying to get water from the dead fridge.

Time passed verrrry slowly.

My friend Karen called in bringing coffee and chips for the kids. It was a welcome distraction from the literal darkness.

I won't get into what happened next in too much detail. I've already written about it on my page, but really long story short, toddler flooded the ensuite by stuffing a nappy and a full toilet roll down the toilet and every item in my linen closet was called up to assist. He then tipped my whole box of laundry powder into the washing machine. He did heaps of other crazy stuff too that left me demented.

All this with no power.

So Friday I go to tackle the laundry. It's FULL of washing. It normally is at the best of times anyway, but after the 'flood of 16' it's even worse. I pop in a load of towels, it fills, washes then beeps. And beeps and beeps. Then BAM. Death.

I couldn't believe it. I wanted to cry. Then a strange feeling came over me. Relief? Excitement? OMG. I AM GETTING A NEW WASHING MACHINE!!!!!!

I can't believe how excited I got! I did some research, asked for the obligatory Facebook opinions, then ordered online and my husband picked it up. I was like a kid that had just had a massive exciting, long awaited present turn up. How crazy is that?

Soooo it got me thinking, last week was about ridiculous things that annoy me- here are some ridiculous things that now I'm an adult give me great satisfaction.

1. When I have a free loaf to collect on my Bakers Delight loyalty card.
2. When I realise I need Rinse Aid and I remember I actually have some.
3. When I go to cook dinner and I actually have all the ingredients
4. Clean sheets
5. Water in my windscreen squirters
6. A full tank of petrol
7. When my kids are asleep
8. Coffee
9. New mascara
10. A new toothbrush
11. When I buy enough fruit to last the week (think that happened once)
12. When I get my period and I already have ample sanitary supplies and don't have to do a mad Woolies dash
13. Mopped floors
14. When there is a spare charger and I get to fully charge my phone
15. When I find a block of chocolate I've hidden from the kids
16. When my kids don't like the lollies I like
17. When all the dishes in the sink fit in the dishwasher
18. When I walk in my home and I smell nice smells instead of last nights tacos
19. New undies
20. Tupperware
21. Credit on my water bill
22. A car park close to school on a rainy day
23. New appliances.

I'm sure there are more. But as I've been writing this, our hot water service has crapped itself and I'm suddenly feeling angry. And poor.

Tell me what little things make you happy!

    How i got back my ex husband after he left me and our kids” I suggest you read my testimony. I’m Beth Walters from the United state, I’m so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband was having an affair with a co-worker and i love my husband so much but he was cheating on me with his co-worker and this girl i think she uses witchcraft or black magic on my husband to make him hate me and this was so critical and uncalled-for, I cry all day and night for God to send me a helper to bring back my husband! I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Lord Zuma can help get ex-boyfriend back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it, then he did a love spell for me. 11hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he misses me so much, Oh My God! I was so happy, and today I am happy with my man again and we are joyfully living together. I thank the powerful spell caster Lord Zuma, he is so powerful and I decided to share my story online here. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma for help now..Here’s his contact, or WhatsApp him: +1 506 800 1647

    Is it wrong that my first thought was wine? Wine makes me happy.. So does sunny, breezy weather so I can get all the sheets and towels washed and dried, so I’m not totally a bad person.. Truly..
