thank you all you lovely folk for your comments!
What prompted me was an unintentional glimpse of the news where i was confronted by firemen facing assult when trying to do their job, the sentancing of the low-life scum (sorry readers) who killed a man for no reason and yet more low life who beat a man senseless, again for no reason.
my heart bleeds at the dreadful society this country will have if this kind of thing continues.
i am afraid i come to you still cross over more personal issues.
why is it that people join a group in order to arrange exciting things for others and yet they get nothing but grief and aggression for their time?
it's sort of like this ~ people will be your friend for the time it suits them but for the rest of the year you are ignored and not kept up to date with potentially important information, but rest assured come the time it counts again they will be your friend.
people will get caught out over various things that they shouldnt be doing but instead of feeling shame they just use their previous position in order to spread lies in their favour.
so today you find me and swampy feeling quite low and dispirited. we are thinking of resigning from one of our volunter camping organising roles due to the first thing i have mentioned. we have now been giving up our free time for this for about 5 years now and think maybe its time to think of ourselves and spend the two weeks and money it costs us on a camping trip of our own, to places we have talked about visiting and yet never have due to other committments.
maybe with this cottage spring clean it is time to spring clean in other ways and finally take the plunge in doing things for us for a change.
it just makes me so cross. it gives you that 'why bother' feeling, it makes you feel resentful for all the time you have given over time that doesnt feel appreciated.
whats worse is that it has really upset swampy and of course i then get upset on his behalf...so i am doing him a nice roast for dinner tonight
