I am off work this week. Well, sort off. I have a bit of work to do from home and people seem to be intruding upon my break on an hourly basis but basically I am off work.
I don't normally post this much but I have so much time on my hands and if I post then I don't need to be doing house work.
Things really do seem to be changing in our home. Fahed's sister just phoned up asking for money (big surprise). She wants to go visit her sister. We have given her so much over the years that I don't bother thinking about it as it would only make me cross. Incidentally this is not the sister in law who has the most from us financially but she is a close second and I know we will never see a penny of it again. Today she wanted $1000. She has been calling since 7.30am. Fahed gave in and phone her back at 7.30 this evening. He said 'No'. What? Never. Impressed, I really am. I think, at the grand old age of 49 that he might have realized that we are actually his responsibility ahead of others. Seriously impressed. Lets hear it for the big guy.
Second nice thing today. I started another little blog, basically detailing my struggle with evil carbs, recipes, ideas and things I learn. Although it is a bit lacking in comments it already has loads of hits. Thank you to anyone who has been joining me over there, even if you have been very quiet about it.
