FFS Friday. Can't. Stop. Coughing.

Well it's been a while since my last FFS Friday post. Some may think that's because I've had nothing to whinge about. If only. I have no excuse except laziness kids being busy.

So what's been making me drink wine lately?

Can't. Stop. Coughing. FFS

I've been sick for about 2 weeks. FFS
Didn't even want to drink wine. FFS
Last Saturday I lost my voice. FFS
Mr Hausfrau was happy that I couldn't nag him. FFS
Boy did I show him! I nagged him via facebook and text messages. No FFS
We had to go to Ikea while I had no voice which meant I couldn't give my full opinion of what I wanted. FFS
My phone went flat in Ikea. FFS

We are renovating soon! No FFS
Last Friday night the flooring salesman came over. No FFS
They wanted a 30% $3300 deposit on the night. There and then. FFS
Mr Hausfrau set them straight. No FFS

Last week my laptop died. Again. FFS
Luckily Mr Hausfrau is clever and fixed it. No FFS

PrincessBF is pulling an all nighter to finish an English assignment. It's due tomorrow. FFS
She's had 3 weeks to do it. FFS
Somehow it'll be my fault. FFS

Team manager duties for PrincessBF's AFL team are doing my head in. FFS
Lack of parent helpers pisses me off big time! FFS
Don't just sit in your car and beep your horn at the end of training. Get out of your freaking car and come and listen to what we have got to say. FFS

Our favourite TV show to watch as a family is back on! Once Upon A Time! No FFS
It's not on until 2215!!! FFS

I'm over being sick. FFS
My voice has gone from being totally gone, to a chipmunk on helium, to a husky sounding phone sex worker. FFS
I'm also masquerading as a snot factory. FFS
The last 3 nights I have moved to the lounge room in the middle of the night to sleep so my coughing doesn't wake Mr Hausfrau. FFS
Crappiest sleeps. FFS
Can't stop coughing during the day too. FFS

Starting to freak out a little about the Ride to Conquer Cancer. It's 4 months away and I still need to raise another $1600 to go. FFS

I'm off to take another cold and flu tablet. Don't look 'cause imma gonna swallow it with a little glass of wine. (no I'm not drinking wine during the day. I wrote this last night. Honest!)

Anything been giving you the shits this week? Tell me. It's cheaper than therapy apparently.

Hooking up with the gorgeous Sarah from Dear Baby G who is currently on a much deserved holiday.

If you've been following me on facebook you may or may not know that I have registered for a 220km bike ride  for the Perth Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2013. This is a cause close to my heart as I have lost some very special people to this horrible disease. As part of my entry I need to fund raise a minimum of $2500 to take part in the actual ride. I really hate asking for donations but I've been told that it's the only way! Do you have a spare $2? Every little bit helps. All money raised will go directly to support cancer patients and their families and all donations $2 and over are tax deductible. Thank you!!


  1. I feel your pain, we all had the coughing disease a couple of months ago and it took forever for he whole house to stop coughing. I hope yours goes soon!!
    I hear you on the parent helper thing. I am getting involved at my eldests preschool and it is discraceful the ammount of people who can't be bothered to show up to meetings etc.
    I remember pulling all nighters too whenI was at school!! It was the only way I would get anything done!!

  2. Hope you have been to the doctor if you have been on cold and flu tablets for more than a few days. I did see Baby Mac post a recipe for a Hot Toddy the other day - think it might cure anything!

  3. Oh no - good luck with the renovating. We are trying to decide whether to renovate the family bathroom before we sell or just give it a lick of paint and hope for the best !!!
    It sucks that you have been sick for so long - hope you feel better soon.
    How I remember those all nighters for assignments - so glad I'm not the only Mom whose fault it was that they hadn't been done before the last minute !!!!
    Take care of yourself and here's to a speedy recovery and then a speedy race !!!!
    Love, hugs and positive energy !

  4. Ugh, hope you are feeling better - the last outbreak of coughing at our house was just a month or so ago, and the husband coughed so hard he passed out, fell over and smashed his head against the table. I ended up having to drive him to the ER at midnight... Constant coughing sucks!

  5. NOOOOOO ot a flat phone in IKEA lol. Hope the cough goes soon hun and that your pelvic floor holds up in the meantime :) xx


Go on, leave me a comment. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! {I've removed "Anonymous Users" as I was getting waaaaaay too much stupid spammy comments!}
