FFS Friday

Hello Friday! Today is a momentous occasion, it is the day that Sarah hands in her Thesis!

It's been a tough week this week, but despite that I don't have a lot to complain about, it's just the same old, bub isn't sleeping stuff which I'm sure you are all sick of hearing about. 

I am hormonal at the moment and experiencing terrible road rage. Perthites should be very thankful that I don't own a large 4 wheel drive with a bull bar because if I did I would be driving into everyone who annoys me. FFS.

I'd love to have a steamroller, then I could just roll right over the top of everyone, it'd be so much fun. FFS.

Sunday evening hubby says to me in a sympathetic voice "You're just hopeless at the moment aren't you?" FFS.

He then went on to say that he meant it in a nice way. FFS.

I gave him the death stare. Bizarrely he's still alive. FFS.

Monday bub decided that 4.30am was a good time to start the day. FFS.

I spent an hour and a half trying to get him back to sleep. It didn't work. FFS.

I explained to him that "Mummy is much more fun when you let her get some sleep", however he ignored me and didn't sleep well Tuesday night either. FFS.

Bub is still not sleeping well. FFS.

When I say not sleeping well, I mean up every hour some nights. FFS.

I wish I could drug him. FFS. 

Bub and I both have a cold, again. FFS.

Tuesday I got a text message from the bank saying that my card has been compromised and will be cancelled at the end of the day. FFS.

This is the second time scammers have got the details of one of our cards. FFS.

I have no idea how they manage it as we are very careful with our cards, never let them out of our sight and haven't used them online. FFS.

The card they got hold of this time has only ever been used at Myer and David Jones. FFS.

Thankfully Bankwest are onto it so quickly that they didn't get any money. Now I have no card for 5 to 10 days. FFS.

Wednesday night I was changing bub's nappy. He'd done a huge poo and stuck his hand on his bum and into the poo straight away. FFS.

Hubby told me that bub stuck his hand in the poo due to me changing his nappy wrong. FFS.

Again, I gave him the death stare. FFS.

Clearly I need to work on my death stare, it's totally ineffective. FFS.

Despite me telling him I don't like it there, BIL is trying to get us to move to the Gold Coast. FFS.

This week he called me to say that he can get a FIFO job for hubby doing 2 and 1. FFS.

WTF would I move to the Gold Coast to have hubby away for 2 weeks at time? FFS.

Thankfully I didn't have MIL and FIL staying this week. By some miracle MIL managed to drive to the airport and pick FIL up, despite her being unable to drive in Perth. FFS.

Wednesday I took bub to the chiropractor. Thursday we were at playgroup and he decided that he wanted to get off the play equipment. He was about 2 meters up, got on his stomach and backed off the platform. FFS.

There was a parent up there who missed it and I was watching from the other side, but thanks to my bung knee I couldn't get there in time to catch him. FFS.

He seems okay, but back to the chiropractor we will go. FFS.

I'm assuming he didn't hurt himself as he only did the scared cry and there were no tears, but still. FFS.

When I told hubby about it (when will I learn!), he said that he hopes Chai doesn't have whiplash. FFS.

The place next door to us is getting bulldozed. For the last 2 days they have parked their bob cat ramps across our driveway, making it very difficult for me to get the car out. FFS.

The place on the other side, where the drug dealers used to live, has new tenants in it. I haven't seen them yet, hopefully they aren't drug dealers too. FFS.

Hubby has wanted to change the rims on "my" car since we bought it. FFS.

Yesterday he came home with new rims and tyres on the car. They are the ugliest f@#$ing things I've ever seen. FFS.

They have an image of a bulls head in the middle of the rim. FFS. 

As if that's not bad enough, they are black and the car is silver. FFS.

And they cost $1400. FFS. 

He put lock nuts on them so no-one can steal them. FFS.

I'd been planning on leaving the car in a dodgy suburb until someone stole the f#$@ing rims. There goes that idea. FFS. 

The topic of rims has come up at least once a month since we got the car. That means I've told hubby I like the rims I have and I don't want new ones at least 19 times. FFS.

When he got home with the new rims he was surprised that I didn't like them. FFS.

He'll be more surprised when he gets home tonight and sees that I've got my old rims back. FFS.

Now I'm planning what to waste $1400 on. Not FFS.

If I wasn't doing P100P I would have spent $1400 by now. FFS.

I would put it into my savings account, however that's the one the scammers got hold of. FFS. 

To top it all off, this morning I got up and found a note on my computer from hubby telling me to be careful of kerbs because the new rims are deep dish. Whatever the f@#$ that is, and like I care! FFS.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!!!!!
Dear Baby G


  1. I saw your IG, and I agree... No. Just no. Also, by deep dish he means they stick out further than the tyre, so it's easier to hit kerbs. That'll teach him. x

    1. Well that's just f@#$ing stupid. Why would you want rims that stick out further than the tyres. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks they are ugly xx

  2. hahaha I will have to go check out your IG now too. I often go up the kerbs so those deep dishes would be lost on me. I am wondering why you are so hormonal ?? hmmm :)

    1. I go up kerbs all the time, which hubby knows, so why the hell he'd get rims like that is beyond me.

  3. wow what a long one but i enjoyed it. funny i was FFS-ing about truck drivers who tailgate and here u are saying u wanna run us all over HaHaHa! lucky u got ur rims back. and it sucks when bubs fall :( thats a real heartbreaking FFS! hope u have a good weekend x

  4. Keep working on that death stare!! Loved this!!

    1. I'm very disappointed that my death stare is so ineffective.

  5. Thankyou so much for the mention!! So sweet! :D :D

    You should spend $1400 on rims!! Bright pink!!

  6. Every week I love reading your FFS posts - they're SO amusing!

  7. I used to work at a bank, let me explain about the cards.

    What "compromise" means is that someone stole card numbers from a specific merchant. The merchant then notifies the banks that issued cards that some of their customers information may have been compromised. It does not mean anyone ever had your specific information, just that you used your card at a merchant whose system was hacked.

    Since you didn't notice any weird charges, it's likely the scammers didn't get your card info at all but the bank takes the precaution of shutting down all the cards that were used at that merchant during a certain timeframe just in case someone has the info but hasn't used it yet (unlikely but possible).

    I really wish people would explain these things better to customers. It's stressful enough not having a card, even worse if someone can't even tell you what actually happened.

    1. Thanks so much for that explanation, it makes me feel a lot less worried about the whole situation. I wonder why they couldn't tell me that at the branch.


Hi, thanks so much for your comment!
