Ok, I need a sanity check here before I blow my lid.
Is it just me or do the following ONLY EVER seem to happen when DH is away for work (FIFO):
1) Big things break (eg cars, gates, trees fall down)
2) We get sick,
3) The weather turns rubbish and makes fixing everything that broke harder, be it heat wave or storms etc.
Seriously I used to think the coincidences were funny and just chance, but now I wonder.
I also am starting to get pretty annoyed at how tough and practical I am having to become. I have been able to fix most things so far, but now that I'm UTD things are a little trickier. It sounds pretty lame, but one thing I liked about the idea of being in a relationship is that I didn't have to be at least semi-proficient in all things in life, we could each have our strengths and weaknesses. I certainly did not expect to be contemplating welding gates and having to dispose of my favourite chook when it died. I certainly did not sign up to be a pregnant lady wielding a chain saw in torrential rain.
Sorry, it's a giant pity party I know, but after a hellish day having the heavy main property gate bust and almost fall on me, and knowing I have to make it safe and stand up again in this heat is about enough to make me flip out entirely. I just wanted to see if there was indeed a pattern for anyone else.
