Seriously people in a previous life I must have run over a China man, because as My World Got Better But For A Short Moment, it came crashing down and here’s why. Stay with me, it takes a little bit.
So Sam has now been gone for two weeks, this weekend was pretty flat as I hadn’t heard from her and I didn’t want to cross any boundaries and call her every day as I know that would just drive her nuts. So I am giving her space. Actually I don’t know that it has been quite two weeks, feels like two months.
Now Sunday night I checked my phone and had a missed call from her, a tad devastated, sent an apology and was looking forward to talking to her through the week. (playing it cool) My phone was on silent as the message/email alarm annoys Michael in the night and I don’t know how to turn it of. So I won’t be doing that again and missing important calls.
Well Sam phoned me Monday 5.45pm, ridiculous that I know the time, I was driving on the freeway but had hands free, so all was good. She was just checking in to say hi, you know, she sounded great, I could hear the smile in her voice, she was clearly happy and unfortunately not sick of that boy who stole my daughters heart and took her away to live a whole 45 minutes away via the freeway. One day I will stop calling him that, just that I am not ready yet.
|I have to find more back pictures of them as Sam doesn’t like her photo publicised, Why wouldn’t you!|
See the way I figure it, 45 minutes may not seem much to some, but since you are going a whole 100 kilometres an hour on the freeway and it takes you 45 minutes to get there, that is a long way away.
She had a great weekend, cleaning. (cleaning) They or I assume they cleaned the blinds and gave the bathrooms that extra scrub, being house proud and all. When Sam rang they had already cooked dinner and cleaned up as they both got home early, and here I was still driving home. (no that’s not why I must have run down a China man in a previous life) The good thing for her and for me is that she is deliriously happy, plain ridiculous isn’t it, it is as it should be.
Now we get to the downer and as to why I must have run over a China man in a previous life.
Brittany is having a tough time at work, she is stressed to the max, has been hideously sick we think maybe with hooping cough. They have been understaffed, two of the team don’t commit and she has been taking on extra. Has outstanding work ethic, stays behind and works from home on the weekends to problem solve when needed. Brittany has a Journalism and Bachelor of Communications degree and has been work for a mining company with the view of entering their communications department when a position becomes available. In the meantime she is on a project team for a new mine site that is coming to the end of the project phase and is going into the production phase.
|Christmas day a wee accident between the drain pipe and the bat, a dent.|
So guess what, Brittany her manager and the rest of the team are having to shift to site. That’s right people a fly in fly out worker. 8 days on 6 days of from May. No she doesn’t want to go but will have no choice.
See it must be payback, I had two and will be left with none. I know I exaggerate but please !!!!!!
What tha!!!!!! I will have to try really really hard not to make Michael’s hell, (I make no promises) because I will have no daughters to talk to. xx
