Matching Dinner Set

My new dinner set arrived. I was not in the mood to be greeted with this scene. It would appear that the postie threw it onto the front verandah from his speeding van. Fuckers. It wasn’t expensive or anything, but my quest to have nice things remained unfulfilled.

Can we talk about mood swings for a moment? And why I am wanting to run towards stupid people wielding a big jagged stick one minute and laughing my ass off the next? Is that a 40 something special that no one tell you about? Kim and I discuss mood swings in our podcast Woog and Berry last week. (Thanks to the 8 people who listened to it) Going from memory, which is also shot to shit, Kim talks about how a mood sits with you for about 20 minutes. Also last week, I felt murderous rage when waiting for a friend outside a K-Mart.

I sat next to the self-serve check out area and that lady’s voice? You know the one….

“Would you like a receipt?”

“Thank you for shopping at K-Mart”

That was going off, over and over again thanks to the dozens of machines. Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep. Anger inducing. Surely a balanced person can learn to block out the noise?

Also, from the completely shallow files, Country Road’s Spend and Save promotion aligned perfectly with pay day, so I thought I would buy myself some happy. Nothing. There was not one thing in their whole range that appealed to me. So typical. When I am skint, I love everything! But it was all so drab, the colours were all dark grey and dark period stain, so I left empty handed. Have you been in lately? Is it just me?

Well, isn’t this a lovely positive post? I need to get my hands on Kyly Clarkes new book me thinks.

Well I wish to be right, AND happy. I don’t want to watch the news anymore, because none of it is good.I want to be able to enjoy green smoothies but all I can taste is bitter grass. I don’t want to be bitter ANYTHING.

In other news, someone scored a new winter coat. Ahh leopard print. Do you ever go out of style?

“I am completely thrilled”

Mood swings. How swingy are yours?

Gentle like a breeze, or something a little more wild?

Also, do you have a matching dinner set? Does it make you happy?
