Here’s the Bizz!

IE News Banner

Good evening eejits, remember me?! Yep I am the person who owns this blog and occasionally stops by to say hello, albeit not nearly as often as she should.

This last while I’ve been on a Rollercoaster and several times have thrown my legs overs the side and my feet onto the track, sadly though it would seem that the soles on my boots have worn away as nothing seems to slow me down. Good job my knickers are reinforced, this is a scary ride!!

I’m only a little human being, in the big wide world and I’m wondering how far I can stretch myself before I snap. My resolve has been sorely tested just this weekend alone, but it’s Sunday night and tomorrow is a new day at the start of a new week.

I’ve lacked ideas for things to write about of late, I even kept an eye on the Daily Prompts to see if they were the kick up the arse I required, unfortunately, they were more WTF than WOW! Daily Prompt 1 – Indecisive Eejits Brain – 0, and we’re back again to the lament regarding the not very bright pixie in the forest.

I haven’t drawn for my challenge and it does not look like I will before the closing date, which is ummm today. So tomorrow I will put up a new one and hope that you all forgive me for my indiscretion this time. There is a possibility though that I will change the challenge from weekly to fortnightly, but nothing has been decided yet. You’re still welcome to submit ideas for things you would like to draw, we consider everything because Mama and I believe that a million heads are better than one!

In other news, the job ticks along. The past week was hectic and I struggled  to keep up, but I am finding that some things are getting easier, so given time I am hoping I will be ok. I’ve a few days booked off for not this week but next, the first days off I have had in over 2 months. I can’t wait, but it is marred by not knowing how things are going to be at home, because sometimes believe me, it is better to be in work.

I’m going to try and be little more proactive around here, by forcing myself to sit down and write. There is nothing like giving yourself a good slap to get things done, ultimately it’s not as satisfying as slapping the shit out of someone who it annoying your head, but there less chance of being arrested.

One last thing before I go, I’m not sure what the cause was, but I’ve had a new spate of followers in the last couple of weeks. So to all of you, thank you, pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable, there is a varied mix of wonderful people who sit around this table and you are a welcome addition, just make yourself heard.

Till next time :)

It’s Newsworthy!

IE News BannerThis was the week that was, and I am rather glad it’s over. I have a few bits and bobs to share with you today, so decided to do so in the form of Breaking Wind News, hosted by your current affairs correspondent, yours truly, The Indecisive Eejit!

The New Job

I managed to get through my first day on my own relatively unscathed. I have no doubt I take longer to do things than my counterpart would have, but I am on a bit of a steep learning curve, and have been hit with a few things that left me a little stumped. I’ll get there in the end, I have a thirst for knowledge regarding things I do not know, and I need to learn to go easy on myself, I can’t expect to know everything in a couple of days.

The Visitors

It’s actually been good having my Aunt here as she has managed to keep my Mum on an even keel, meaning that for the two weeks I was training I only had the stress of work to deal with. I am however a little out of my routine and feel a bit all over the place, but I have a couple of days off due to the 12th July holidays, to regroup and catch up on things I have missed.

Cat Naps

I’m think I am getting to the age where I will soon start falling asleep in front of the TV when all the chores are done. I really wanted to write last night, but I could not keep my eyes open. I hate going to bed early on a Friday night, I tend to fall out with myself, due to the fact that it’s the start of the weekend and I conk out before 11pm!

Cartoon Craziness Challenge

This started out as a joke between myself and Mental Mama. I challenged her to do a couple of drawings and she accepted. After a few comments we decided to throw it open to the wider blog community. I have been amazed by the responses, and it seems we do indeed have a few budding Picasso’s in out midst. Please feel free to join in, there is no need to worry about your level of skill, it’s all in good fun and I have really enjoyed seeing all the entries this week.

If you would like to have a look and perhaps join in, you can find my original post HERE. There are also links at the bottom to all the entries so far, check them out, they are truly awesome.

I’ve decided I will make this a regular feature and my favourite Mental Mama (MM) has already picked the theme for next week. I’m undecided I might issue it on either a Sunday or Monday, that is to be confirmed.

MM designed a banner and I expanded on it just a little, so from now on all posts for the Cartoon Craziness Challenge will be under the following banner. I hope you like it :)

Something that deserves a mention!

Every now and again I come across a new blog that I like. When I was starting out, I was glad of the help I received from others. That said I don’t think this blog will have any problems gathering followers as it’s really funny, and if I know you lot like I think I do, then you will as well, so I decided to share.

The Iggy Dialogues

Iggy the Wonder Schnauzer. Rescue beast. Hobbies include chewing and shrieking. Accomplishments include taking over So Many Feebs before getting his own blog, and sometimes sitting on command. Objectives include smelling every single person on Earth.

Go introduce yourself and say hi to the very witty and funny Iggy, you will not be disappointed :)

I like sometimes how I just happen across blogs, however thank you also to all of my new followers. You widen my world when I would otherwise not have been aware of your existence!

That’s all for now, till next time Eejits! :)

Hump Day News Round Up!

IE News Banner

The above picture actually looks a little like how I did on Tuesday of this week. I had to make an appearance for a meeting, which falls under the remit of the new job. I wore a pink shirt. Let me tell you that again in case you missed it, I wore a pink shirt! Now you’ll probably not understand how much of a big deal this is for me, but it really seriously is, on a huge scale. Lets just say than when I wear anything other than black, every fecking person on the planet seems to notice. I felt self conscious and uncomfortable the whole day, but I am going to have to suck it up and get used to it, cos this will have to be the new normal!

Speaking of clothes, I was rather excited when I got an e-mail to say that the clothes store I favour was having a 50% off sale. I’m still on the lookout for a few more work shirts etc, now that I know for sure I am moving. You can imagine my disappointment when after 30 minutes of trawling I found out that the only things still in stock, in my size, are a pair of socks! I’ve heard of fur coat and no knickers, I’m just not sure how well, all socks and no suit would go down with the new boss.

I’ve jumped on the Bloglovin bandwagon. I’d signed up ages ago, but just never got around to doing anything with it. In all honesty I’ve still not done anything with it except follow a few friends. I like the idea that you can add any blog you wish, regardless of whether they have signed up or not. Well at least I think that’s how it works.

I’m glad I’ve found it, because I’ve been having a problem with the wordpress reader for a while. It seems to only show me 20 new posts and no more, so I’ve been missing quite a few. I’ve switched a couple of the photography blogs I follow over to Bloglovin, as due to the volume of posts they were dominating my reader. So don’t panic, I’m still stalking you :)

Last night on arriving home I was ready to commit murder! You’ll be aware from my recent posts (if you actually read them!) that I have spent the last 3 weekends getting the house ready for my Aunts visit. Things were looking up, and my stress levels had almost returned to an acceptable level. Walking into the house last night changed all of that, I really did resemble this:

What the absolute f**k!!

I said nothing, not a word, and believe me, that’s when I am at my most deadly. I did however bang pots and pans and  sigh a lot, because although some arguments are just not worth pursuing, there is still a need to show disapproval.

The Mothership had started to tidy the good room, which over the course of the last year has become her new dumping ground, since the upstairs room was at that stage pretty much full to bursting. Let me translate ‘tidy’ for you, in this house it means carry the stuff from said room you wish to cleanse and dump the shite it contains onto any available surface that has been previously cleared and decluttered. When I calmed down, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to cry or bang my head repeatedly off a brick wall. In the end I did neither, I had a shower, a strong coffee, loaded GTA V and basically shot the shit out of anything that moved. Weirdly, I did feel a little more relaxed come bed time.

Needless to say I have another weekend of cleaning in front of me, more than likely revisiting places I have already done. Gotta love Dementia, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.


It seems my Sister, after reading my blog, has been practicing her Haiku skills. Her first attempt certainly made me laugh, so I just had to share it. Here is her Haiku of the day –

Sitting on the train
Enveloped in a fart cloud
Of my own making.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those on the Northern Ireland Railways Belfast Departure who may not make it home alive, unless of course they had the foresight to pack a gas mask this morning.

Happy Hump Day Eejits :) x
