It has been an amazingly long time since I have been on my little beloved blog and I guess I ought to explain where on earth I’ve been! I mean, most bloggers disappear when they are doing something life changing, like having a baby, moving house, changing career, writing books etc. You know, BIG things. But I haven’t been doing those things. Sadly, I’ve not been doing much!
Hmmm, what I have done since I’ve been gone for nearly two years? Well, I’ve completed two years of my degree with The Open University for one! That took some time up because I could no longer fanny around on Facebook or Twitter and witter on about my disastrous life, no, I had to do SERIOUS stuff! Studying, tutorials, writing essays, wondering why I don’t understand politics and law etc. To be honest, I still don’t seem to understand anything but I did manage to pass most essays and exams with around 70%! I literally have no idea how! I just stuck lots of intelligent sounding words together and hoped for the best! But, halfway through last year I decided to stop taking some of my strong medications (like a good few bloggers I have some chronic illnesses), but I also have liver disease so decided it was best to stop a lot of the strong meds I was on. Not my mental health meds, my doctor refused to let ,e stop those, I guess me having a nervous breakdown wasn’t something she wanted on her conscience! But the side effects from me dropping all my meds were horrendous and long standing so I decided to defer my next year at uni to try and get on top of my health.
I also met the love of my life! It wasn’t plain sailing to start with, what with me having BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder - why have one personality when you can have many?!), but he’s now used to me and my weird foibles and is brilliant with it! He has said it stops him getting bored, so it’s a bonus really! Anyway, we fell madly in love, and are happily engaged and he is a brilliant stepdad to my 3 sleep thieves. So we spent a lot of time going to the cinema, the pub, on holiday and gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes! Yep, I know, it’s vomit inducing!
On top of all this, we had an issue with Satan! I mean, we always have issues with Satan, but I mean more than the average issues! She started getting bullied at school. Badly. The headteacher of the school refused to believe she was being bullied but let’s not go into that too much (I don’t fancy being sued!), but at some point I may have called a complaint hearing and asked why on earth he’d decided that some horrible little shithead pulling my child’s legs out from underneath her so she smashed her forehead into the concrete floor, on pretty much a daily basis, and telling her regularly that he hoped she died of cancer (just a reminder - she is eight years old..!), was not what he classed as bullying. He started on about how he didn’t like to use the word “bullying” so therefore it wasn’t happening! Yes that’s right, he did absolutely fuck all! So at this point I pulled her out of school and homeschooled her until I could find her a place at a new school, which she started only a few days ago! There has been massive fallout because of it, but my daughter is happy and is loving her new school and not being battered every day, so I don’t particularly give a shit what anyone else thinks!
So now Satan has returned to school, I actually have time on my hands again! And as much as I love her and enjoyed our extra time together, my god, she was driving me insane! I am so not cut out to be a teacher, how do they make it through the day without accidentally on purpose clipping some mouthy bastards ear I do not know! They have more patience than me! How do teachers reach their thirties without sitting in a corner rocking and dribbling on themselves? I don’t know, all I know is, fuck that!
So I guess I’m back! I didn’t really know where to begin so I figured the beginning would be a good place! I’m keeping up with the times and am over on Instagram now, aswell as Facebook and Twitter, and my life rests on how many people follow me, so pop along and follow me so I can feel validated about myself as a person! And keep your ears and eyes peeled later on in the year for a Slummy Mummy book.....ah it’s all very exciting these days!
I have missed you guys! I promise I’ll never leave again!
Love Slummy x
