    I really wish Mr dizzy's posting order would hurry up already. I really hate this limbo we are in. Please Glasgow be nice to us!

    I know we are supposed to be appreciating our children that little bit more today, but my smallest one can fuck right off.

    I am sick to bloody death of him not listing, throwing shit, screaming at the slightest bloody thing and not sleeping until midnight (ish).

    Sick and bloody tired and all I want to do is be able to have something to eat and not feel like absolute fucking shit, but I literally haven't got anyone at all to help. No one. So great.

    I know its a small thing, and the fact its got me so fucking mad is probably symptomatic of the insanity that has been running a survey, whilst hosting an academic, whilst attending a conference, whilst resubmitting an ethics application, on very little sleep, and the fact I'm really not looking forward to going home to the funeral- nor have I packed even though I leave tonight...

    But why the FUCK does the IRAS form feel the need to continually pop up with a fucking "notice that you haven't entered a valid e-mail address" if you dare click the bloody box. I know I didn't, I wasn't trying to! I was trying to copy and paste, which I can't fucking do because this goddamn box keeps popping up every time I fucking click. System is absolutely stupid.

    I am definitely not complaining about the gorgeous, not-a-cloud-in-the-sky 20+ degree weather today, but I am cursing my stupidity at spending the day outside without sunscreen on.

    Current state; well at truly lobsterfied. I'm pretty sure I could fry eggs on my thighs.

    Home for my Grandma's funeral.

    We have grandpa-with dementia- living with us in the house because grandma has broken her leg. He needs round the clock care.

    We are out of bedrooms, so Mum and Dad are sleeping in the living room.

    The oldest teenager is taking advantage of the marginally less supervision to push boundaries and make poor choices, all the while being a snotty brat and general shite.

    Dad's grief is manifesting as the need to be an asshole to everyone- he reduced my mother to tears last night, and we are all walking on egg shells around him. He hates all the plans we are making for the funeral, but won't make any suggestions.

    Tomorrow my Aunt and Uncle arrive for the funeral. Uncle has early onset dementia, so we are going to have two people with dementia who need full time care in the house. Also need to find a bedroom for them... then the 3 cousins arrive...

    Meal planning is becoming some sort of military logistics planning task. We have 18 for dinner most days between now and Saturday.

    Thursday we have to do all the baking for the funeral (because all the boys- Dad, uncle, male cousins, brother) want 'grandma's baking' at her memorial, but are very happy to leave it to Mum, auntie and brothers girlfriend and me...while also leaving all the care of people with dementia and all the funeral plans to us! They all seem to be content with turning up in a suit on Friday and that being the extent of their participation.

    I am meant to be 'working' while i'm home towards my PhD deadline.... HAHAHAHAHAHA

    This is a fucking mess.

    Can someone please pass my mum and I some wine?

    As much as I am delighted for yet another friend that's got engaged, it just rams home home how shit my life is.
    My life is in limbo, "friends" only seem to care if I can be useful, I'm working ridiculous hours for shit pay, and men run from me like I'm desperate for marriage and babies, when all I want is to have fun and enjoy myself.
    Im almost fucking thirty for crying out loud. Surely there's more to life than this?

    Work has been horrendously stressful and filled with long hours since February and I just want to lie down and cry. My sleep has been ruined by stress, valerian root doesn't help, my psoriasis has flared up because of work and I haven't spent a single weekend recovering since April as there's always something up (two hen dos, a trip back home or working weekends).

    I just wish I could win the lottery...

    So I have had nothing to eat all day, about three hours sleep thus week. But it's OK I won't grab something at Costco because you want to get back because you had to look after mini dizzy for 90 whole minutes whilst I slept! Cheers mate.

    The ethics process has taken so long to get completed that the DBS check that I had done at the beginning of this whole process is no longer valid. This was not mentioned to me as a potential issue. So now, as I FINALLY have all the various approvals in place, I have to go back and reapply for a DBS check and wait for the results of that before I can start my research. Frustrated isn't the word. I'm one more setback away from saying fuck it all and becoming a lemon farmer in Sevilla or some other such non-academic position.
