    I am weird but I honestly wear it all to Coles.

    I wore my nice Kitten Damour pants to my brothers house yesterday when the kids had a playdate. Literally the kind of family playdate where my brother was elbow deep in greasy Gemini engine.

    I wear it all to the local shops. I honestly got rid of most lounge wear stuff. So i would get it. And wear it even if I am overdressed (I am always overdressed).

    I am really angry with DP. I bought a new second hand landcruiser a few months ago with under 200k on the odometer. His car is not suitable (really unsafe) to have a baby seat in so my car is our sole means of transport. He took it away 4wd'ing for the long weekend and said he wouldn't do anything stupid well he killed my car and it will cost thousands to fix and I will have to walk the kids over an hour each way to school until it is fixed.

    Sometimes I buy it, others no. There was this beautiful formal dress on sale down from $199 to $50 plus a further 20% off. I have had my eye on this dress for awhile coz of how beautiful it is. I never bought it though because I bought something else I would wear. Plus I literally go no wear ever these days apart from woolies. I have so many dresses that I don't wear because they are too dressy. I work literally every weekend so I never go out with friends for a drink or anything to wear half of it.

    I am going to freaking well explode. 2 teens girls whinging because they can't find their uniforms. It's all my fault apparently. Not the fact the have all their uniforms dirty and hidden in their cupboards.

    I had the same thing this morning!!! Not my fault when I asked them at least 10 times yesterday to get the dirty clothes out of their room so I can wash them.

Living here without a car sucks
    If you can't work it out you can always see a financial counsellor (I think centrelink may have them - but The Salvos etc should as well). They can do budgets etc and they are free.

    Good luck with the car. Car buying sucks.

    Do they have a private group with these details on them? I have a Facebook account only so I can be a me never of my gyms social group. I post nothing and have no friends so I don't get caught up in the Facebook world but still get invited to things.

    far too muc TMI but in total OMG what am I going to do mode - have waken up this morning to find that my dog has had diarrhea overnight & there is quite literally liquid dog poop from one end of the house to the other. I don't even know where to start with cleaning it up (as well as possibly now having to work out how to afford to take her to the vet if it is still happening on a public holiday when I have zero money - right now she is happily sleeping in bed so will see
