Dee: whaa??

Should we start a "snuggly jammies" thread? Haha.
FBL I feel like we're in a "coldest place" competition. We're -8 here this morning. Balmy. :)
Hey yesterday I went firewood harvesting with my friend, we drove into the forest and chopped up dead pine with his chainsaw. It was fun, tromping around in the snow! And I was a champ with the chainsaw, he said I looked like a proper lumberjack! Hah. Kind of made me miss my landscaper days.
Who's feeding the cat? Mags? I say keep it.
SW has been quiet, where's my good morning update?
Date #4 happened, which turned into Date #5. You could say things are going well. :) But I am being cautious, this guy has a somewhat questionable history, you know when you don't quite trust someone? I'm trying to figure out how much of that is my real gut instinct and how much is me being overly cautious and judgemental. He seems sincere but there's still a nagging feeling that I'm not getting the whole story. Eg. the mother of his 18 yo daughter, his ex-wife of 12 years, won't let him see his daughter. WTF is that. He says it's control issues and that she's very unhappy. I don't know if I should believe him. He seems honest. But is this a red flag right in my face that I'm ignoring?
Any-hoo. Like I said I'm keeping distance for now. I've told him so. And he seems okay with that.
I guess it's Monday. Have a good one everyone!

IP, there's no particular rush is there? If it were me, a bit of caution is rarely out of place :-)

Mags1 11-23-2015 11:20 AM

Haha that's what I thought Inpar , must mean something in Aussie.

I agree with sassy, slowly, slowly, does it cautiously, Inpar .

Well not long now before I start wearing my Christmas t-shirts, the jumpers being a bit too hot for me, being of that age! Lol. I've just bought another and it's got an advent calendar on it,. So I've quite a few to go at depending my mood for the day.

Gonna have a piece of lemon cake with a cuppa, yay.

Speak soon.

tootsl1 11-23-2015 01:08 PM

Mmmm lemon cake!

Yeah, Wolfie, where are you????

All ok in Tootsville

Mags I'm always out of my work clothes and into my jammies! :)

venuscat 11-23-2015 04:43 PM

Hitting the kivers = going to bed. :)

Hmmm....InPar, if you don't mind me saying, that does sound like a red flag to me.
I would want him to open up and give me a few more details about that before I got more serious with this guy. :hug:

Love to all of the Overs. ♥

Mags1 11-23-2015 10:27 PM

Venus, thanks for the translation. I just looked and didn't realise, or had forgotten your in Aussie too! I thought you were American , I'm now going to have to give you a nice new accent! Lol.

Sounds good to me toots! Hubby takes the mick when I put my jimjams on but, then again, he always takes the

venuscat 11-23-2015 10:39 PM

Aussie yes, British parents Mags ~ Scottish mum and English dad. :)

Mags1 11-23-2015 10:57 PM

Oh lovely, you may have a hint of Scot in you, V?

Dee74 11-24-2015 12:01 AM

I was speaking 'Rusty', not Aussie :)


Saskia 11-24-2015 04:16 AM

Good morning, Overs :-)

FormerBeerLover 11-24-2015 04:32 AM

Have a great Tuesday, overs!

Soberwolf 11-24-2015 04:43 AM

Hi Overs I'm here, it was my late mothers 6 yr passing yesterday I was having a bit of a breather since Saturday

XO :hug:

Rusty Zipper 11-24-2015 05:25 AM

you got it dee! lol

i just got out of the kivers

fbl, may i please have your autograph? lol

InParticular 11-24-2015 07:40 AM

Oh sorry SW, sorry for your loss and hope you are feeling better now.

What is a "Rusty"?

I love how international this crowd is. Well, English-speaking international I guess!
Where the heck is Itchy?

Happy Tuesday back, FBL. :) The weeks are flying by.
The head of the company is coming tomorrow to meet our staff and to make an "announcement", some changes he's making and it most likely involves my job. I am nervous. I've been told it's "all good" but, it's not like he's going to tell us ahead of time if it's bad news. So yeah I'm nervous.

I talked to the guy about his ex, on you guys' advice! He said that it's not that she doesn't want him to see his daughter, it's that his daughter doesn't want to upset the mother, who she lives with, because when he comes around she gets mad and takes it out on the daughter. I guess she's on medication for depression, anxiety (sounds familiar, I was thinking as he told me this) and is holding on to a lot of anger from 20 years ago. He says he tries to communicate with her but she can't or won't with him. So....okay but it still kind of sounds like he blames her for a lot of things. I don't know, I'm taking it very slowly and I guess that's a good enough explanation for now. He seems sincere, I can usually tell when people are bs'ing me.
Anyway. Monday was busy. I got a lot done and it's always a moment at the end of the day when I think "wow I can actually do this job."
It is 7:40 am and pitch black out, still. It will still be dark when I drive to work in an hour.
Oh and, it's -19 out!!!!!!!!!!! Hope my car starts. I keep forgetting to get a block heater for the engine.
Warm inside though so that's good. I'll let you know when we hit -30.
