Hi all, I have no injuries, trainings going well, just felling stressed lately. Got the usual, got to get up at 4:30am for work. I’m constantly late by 10 to 15mins. I go to bed by 10:30, if I’m lucky. Kids have had various illnesses like colds n flu and whatever elsse is going round. were trying to get our 18 month into sleeping by herself in her cot. She loves her buggy and has always slept in it. When she creates, she’s loud, I me she’s louder than our other kids. When she cries she vibrates her tongue on her lips, lol, and makes more noise with that. But were patient and she wails less, so were winning. Finances are are mess, been that way since 2003 when we lost a baby, bless him. But I got this old man who lives 2 doors up. His grandson was playing with my eldest daughter and her friends. He’s only five, and he nicked the grips of the handlebars on her bike and through them down the drain in the street. I spoke to his grand dad and he sent the boy home crying. I was polite because he wasn’t the parent. Few weeks later, the boy threw a stone in my daughters eye and caught her cheek. Again I was polite and asked to see the boys dad. Nothing come of it. A day later I asked the Grandad when his son is going to come and talk to me about it. I got called rude names and told to go indoors. Fuming I did just that. If I lost my rag the situation would get worse. Eventually, I spoke to the boys mother, who was rude and said my daughter was just as bad.
All I wanted to do was to make the boy realise he could have blinded my daughter. I’d have done it. Simple “You don’t throw stones…” you know the line.
The grandad is now building a roof next door to keep the neighbours bike dry. He asked me, when I was outside, if he could come my side and install some felt. He didn’t say please and after what had happened I just said no. Then I received more verbal, “Your a Fcing nice neighbour, you wner. etc”
I went indoors and said nothing. Basically, 2 years ago I gave up smoking, (and spliff). I’d have launched a load of words at him and probably threatened to hit him.
I don’t smoke, I got enough on my plate and he’s an old man. What would you advice?
How can I calm myself? I’m still fuming inside and it makes me bitter. I’m not as happy as I once was. I don’t want to smoke, I know I’d go straight back on the weed and 2 years training would be wasted. I’m not a beer drinker, although I love whisky and coke, which aint no good either.
I’m now getting a mild headache.So I must stop typing and try and chill.
Sorry if I’m ranting, I don’t have many people to rant to.
