Going back to what I said about Dhs fam vs my own...I actually don't think it's in relation to how much money they do or don't have...it's more the importance ppl place on it. And I have said this before, my fam has it all wrong! My Dad blames his poor childhood for his money hang ups now...enough is never enough. If he had 10 mill in the bank he would still be this way.

    Sorry for the rant!!

    I am here to support any of your family woes with open ears

    Oh and Crafty, I'm sure your body is just settling back into its self. Something to get used to.

    And...my opks arrived today at work. The girls were like ohhh what's in the package and luckily the return address was Global something...so I just said it must be for DH. At the time i thought maybe it was, lucky I didn't open it though!
    Hahaha mine say global something. I always thought it was weird.

    I actually had some Christians ( I am assuming anyway) they were pleasant enough they didn't ramble on they just passed a pamphlet through and went on their way which is fair enough. So I wasn't too unhappy about that lol.

    Mine gave me their pamphlet and asked me a question then said they were going to read a passage. I told them I was sorry but I wasn't really interested and hoped they had a lovely day. They said no problem thanks for listening and me have a great day too. All very lovely and non pressured. My fave type haha.

    I live 25km out of a rural town on a 400acte block do tend not to get many door knockers. Although this morning a man showed up looking for my neighbour (and when I say neighbour I mean 5km down the road) and I had just washed my hair and had it in a turban lol

    Yeah I love that we don't get door knockers here.

    The only time I've even had someone unexpected rock up was a guy on a tractor to give a quote to slash our firebreaks, with someone sitting on the front as he drove down the road!!

    Sounds like where DH grew up! Peace and quiet in the country and many wonderful childhood memories riding bare back on his horse with nothing but a tin of baked beans for lunch all day.He said he would leave at 9 and be home at 6pm. He has so many fond memories, your kids will be blessed!
