CAPSLOCK FRIDAY

YESTERDAY I GOT TOTALLY PISSED OFF WITH MY BROTHER-IN-LAW, SURPRISE SURPRISE. 

I WAS KNACKERED AFTER THE MUSEUM, AND 3 OF THE 4 PEOPLE WHO'D SAID THEY WERE GOING TO THE MEET-UP HAD CANCELLED, SO I SUGGESTED TO REBS THAT INSTEAD OF COMING ALL THE WAY OVER HERE, WE JUST DID IT ANOTHER DAY, WHICH SHE SAID WAS FINE.

I SETTLED DOWN WITH 'CREATE AND CRAFT' (PEOPLE DOING CRAFT AND TALKING QUIETLY) ON THE SOFA, AND FELL ASLEEP. JUST AFTER 6, I WAS WOKEN UP BY THE TELLY BEING SWITCHED OVER TO A MUCH LOUDER CHANNEL WHICH HAPPENED TO BE ON THE ADVERTS WHICH WERE BLASTING OUT. NO ONE ELSE WAS IN THE ROOM. I REACHED UP TO TURN THE VOLUME DOWN AND STU CAME THROUGH ASKING ME IF I WANTED A BREW. HE THEN WENT UPSTAIRS. 

SO I STOMPED OFF TO MY ROOM AND GOT IN BED. I LAY THERE TRYING TO SLEEP AGAIN, BUT I WAS JUST SO ANGRY THAT I COULDN'T. SO I READ MY TEXT I'D GOT. LUCKILY IT WAS FROM REBS SAYING SHE'D GONE TO STARBUCKS ANYWAY, SO I SAID I'D BE THERE IN 5 MINUTES. I THEN STORMED OUT THROUGH IAN'S BEDROOM WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING TO STU.

I GOT BACK IN AFTER 2 HOURS, AND THE FIRST THING IAN SAID TO ME WAS 'CAN I HAVE A PINT OF SPLASH, PLEASE?'* I HADN'T EATEN YET (THEY HAD) SO I SAID 'FOR GOD'S SAKE I JUST WALKED THROUGH THE DOOR!' AND HE APOLOGISED. I GOT HIM SOME SPLASH ANYWAY, AND MADE A SANDWICH. WHILST UP THERE, I CLEANED UP WHAT STU HAD LEFT BEHIND FROM TEA. BASICALLY ALL HE'D HAD TO DO WAS HEAT UP THE STEW I'D LEFT AND THEN FEED IAN. I'M REALLY GRATEFUL HE CAME OVER AND EVERYTHING, BUT FOR FUCK'S SAKE! 

SO I WENT DOWNSTAIRS AND SAID 'THE DISHWASHER ISN'T BROKEN YOU KNOW, YOU CAN PUT STUFF IN IT' TO WHICH HE SAID HE HADN'T BECAUSE HE HADN'T KNOWN WHAT TO DO WITH THE LEFTOVERS. SO I SAID 'WELL ANYTHING WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER THAN LEAVING IT FOR ME TO CLEAR UP'.

THEN THE PHONE RANG, AND I IGNORED IT CAUSE I WAS TOO HET UP THROUGH HUNGER. SO THEN I DID 1471, AND IT WAS DAD, AT 9PM. HE NEVER RINGS ANYWAY, LET ALONE AT 9PM. SO I RANG BACK, AND BASICALLY HE JUST WANTED TO TELL ME HE'D INVITED US TO STAY THE WRONG WEEKEND, AND THEN KEPT ASKING ME IF I WANTED TO GO OVER BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND, BUT NOT ANSWERING ME WHEN I ASKED WHEN IT WAS. I EVENTUALLY SAID 'DAD I HAVE NO IDEA WHEN WEEKENDS ARE LET ALONE BANK HOLIDAYS, BECAUSE I STILL DON'T WORK'

THEN HE STARTED TALKING ABOUT A WEDDING HE'S GOING TO WITH HAZEL, AND HOW THEY'RE GETTING DRESSED UP. I TOLD HIM TO MAKE SURE HE GOT A NICE PHOTO OF HIM AND HAZEL WHERE HE ISN'T PULLING HIS USUAL PHOTO FACE (THIS ISN'T BEING MEAN, WE HAVEN'T GOT A DECENT PHOTO OF DAD ANYWHERE). HE ASKED WHY AND I DECIDED TO JUST SAY 'SO I CAN HAVE A COPY OF IT' BECAUSE IT WOULD MAKE HIM HAPPY. IT ENDED UP BEING A GOOD PHONECALL.

FUNNY DAY.
