Random Thought Bubble

If you ever see another post from me that says "Random Thought Bubble" it means that am presently out of inspiration and am just chatting about what ever appears to be in my mind at the moment!

You see, I have indeed run out of inspiration at the moment and when I saw Alison's post about Random Thought Bubbles, I asked if I could steal the idea! Fortunately Alison very kindly said yes and so here I am with my own Random Thought Bubble that may appear with surprising regularity!!

  • First up - it's Thursday, which of course means that tomorrow is Friday - heralding the start of the weekend!! I am always so tired by the end of the week that weekends are really something to look forward to. But then that's my own silly fault for having two jobs that means that I leave the house at 8am and don't get back until 10:30pm three days of the week. I have my normal day job and then an evening job, which I originally took so that I could pay back a small loan. Nearly two years later, I have had the garden landscaped (all 5 square metres of it!!) and had a three week trip to Australia, but the loan is still outstanding!! Ha ha, I don't mind it so much cos my salary has recently gone up a bit, so I can cope with that. However, at the end of July I will be finishing this evening job as I am fed up of being tired and want my evenings back!!

  • Secondly, I am really enjoying NaComLeavMo (see bright orange button on my side bar!) and am leaving comments all over the place, not to mention adding lots of bright shiny blogs to my feedreader. It is fabulous seeing all those blogs out there and thinking of what to say in the comments. When I originally signed up for NaComLeavMo it escaped my notice that many of the blogs involved in this bloggie extravaganza are all about the very personal anguish of infertility. As a single woman with no present inclination (or wherewithal!) to have children, I am humbled by those women, and handful of men, that share their intimate (not THAT intimate) stories with us regarding repeated IVF attempts, miscarriages, pregnancy, adoption and all of the angst that comes with it.

  • Finally, what is it about people who moan and whinge about a problem and then sit there as though they expect you do something about it!? I am all for a whinge-fest, in fact I quite enjoy them sometimes, but then I would attempt to do something about it rather than start whining all over again a few weeks later when nothing has happened - of course nothing has happened - you haven't done anything about it!!!

Anyway, those are my random thoughts this evening during an inspirationless day, so I am actually quite pleased that I have been able to offer up a fair amount of perfect rubbish for you all to read!!!

One last thing - I may need more inspiration next week - so do you have any questions for me, anything you'd like to know? Feel free to ask anything you like although I reserve the right to ignore any I don't like!!

I second the whining without doing anything. You would think they would realize it!

I'm also enjoying NCLM. Thanks for the comment.

I like the idea of a random thought bubble.

Two jobs - no wonder you look forward to the weekends! those are some loooong days. I hope you'll be able to quit soon.

And whining - I whined on my post yesterday - but, it just felt good to rant. :)

What are your job to do with? And how did you end up in that particular career?

Sam I'm very impressed with the 'random thought bubble', that was a good 'steal' - have you thought about doing the '5 miles to fabulous' (look on site comms 2 day) to keep you occupied (and fit) this weekend!!

Hi Sam.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. NCLM is fun isn't it!!

I like your random thought bubble. Have a great weekend

you know I was thinking what would happen to those people who joined NaComLeavMo that were not apart of the infertilty world! It would be kinda overwhelming and depressing! But I am hoping to that it will bring some education to the world, its such a hush hush issue! So I am glad you are enjoying NaComLeavMo, despite all the infertile talk! ha ha

Thanks for your comment on my blog too!

I am glad to hear you're quitting the second job - it made me exhausted and I'm just reading about it. Enjoy your extra time!

Thanks for stopping by the blog and commenting today - it's nice to "meet" you!

Whining then taking action is a good thing. I whinge too though I try to cut down on that. LOL.

I, too, am loving NCLM! :)

Ok, why don't you tell us about your jobs...I always like hearing how people spend most of their life! :)
