My Wish List of Life Improvement: Snoring, Foxes, and Lena Dunham

lena collage

 

There’s loads of things in my life that I’d like to change, the list is probably quite long. But, I’m prioritising-these are the four things currently on the top of my wish list of life improving change right now, that would really improve the quality of my life if addressed!

  1. My Husband’s Snoring.

This has seriously gotten out of hand-to the point of probable divorce if he can’t just STOP. BLOODY. SNORING. Mr ‘Decibel’ W (as his new street name will be,) can probably be heard by the hard of hearing living in Australia, such is the ferocity of the noise. The sofa is currently sporting his favourite pillow, and starting to show signs of indentation of a ‘Decibel’ W shape, where he spends most nights sleeping on it. I actually thought I was handling it quite well, but when I happened to ask him the other morning why the heck he was being such a mopey off hand git, he announced that he had actually been worried for his life when I’d kicked him out of bed the night before. It transpired that in a sleep deprived haze of being tortured by his incessant rumblings, when I thought I’d said ‘darling, you appear to be emanating a slightly irritating noise from your general face area,’ what I’d actually done was shouted ‘shut up, shut up, shut uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup, I hope when you’re on your way to work tomorrow a lion rips your throat out so I never have to listen to this racket anymore, now get oooooooooooooooooooooout.’ I’m sure he must’ve been exaggerating, as I can’t remember this happening, but if it’s having that much of an effect on my sanity that I’m lashing out like a crazed banshee who has had as much sleep as someone with a newborn baby, then we need to address it. Not even the thought of star fishing in the bed on my own is enough to want to keep ‘Decibel’ W on the sofa…

2. The Urban Fox Population.

Ok, so the urban fox population in our neighbourhood is getting out of hand. In fact, I think they’re plotting some kind of gangland takeover, and I’m waiting for the day they start hammering on my door asking for protection money. If it wasn’t enough that the Waitrose leftovers that they scavenge from people’s bins, clearly doesn’t agree with their stomachs, (judging from the splodgy messes they leave littering the streets for me to push my pushchair wheels through,) they are now trying to mark their territory by leaving massive steamers on my front door step. They are stepping way over the line here. In fact, I’ve come to think that they may be in cahoots with the local toddlers, as their behaviour is very similar: The foxes poo in inappropriate places, as do toddlers. They run around screaming in the middle of the night-I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve dashed out of bed thinking that one of my toddlers is having night terrors, only to see them both snoozing, and look out the window to see a pack of unruly foxes living it up, probably having a poo off, in the street outside. They also hover around next to you, staring you out, and you get a bit freaked out, not knowing which way it’s going to go-a few times I’ve been coming home from the pub, and there has been a fox (probably the leader of the fox mafia,) staring at me while I nervously try and get the front door open. It’s like when I’m in the kitchen anywhere near the snack cupboard, I get stared out by the toddlers, and I don’t know if they will turn around and go back to what they were doing, or launch a full on attack on me until they’ve seen the entire contents of the cupboard. Finally, I find myself doing a Bristol Stool Chart analysis of the fox’s poo, just like I do with my toddlers. They’re basically the animal form of toddlers. I wish them no harm, I just can’t help thinking my life would be easier if they were living it up in the countryside somewhere (the foxes, not my toddlers,) where they wouldn’t launch a tirade of tyranny on the innocent residents of the city ‘burbs.

Bristol_stool_chartNo 4: Toddlers and Foxes on a normal day. No 7: Toddlers and Foxes after a Waitrose binge.

3. I wish WordPress wouldn’t be such a dick.

Seriously, why do I feel like I need a Ph.D in categorising, a Masters in menus and navigation bars, an honours degree in plugins and widgets, and a nobel prize for coding, just to write a flipping blog post. WordPress is responsible for 90% of my grey hairs, wine consumption, number of swear words per minute, and need for diazepam, since it took over as the most stressful thing in my life next to being a mum. There must be someone out there who can make all of this just a type and go situation. In fact, scrap the snoring as the cause of divorce, I think ‘reason for divorce: WordPress,’ might just be the first divorce in history to go down this way…

4. I need season 6 of Girls not to be the last one.

If you haven’t seen this show, please watch it! Watch it now!!!! It hasn’t even finished yet, and I’m already in that haze of mourning, like when I finished the final Harry Potter book. That feeling of wandering around, with a void so complete you feel like you’ve lost a limb. Already planning on binge watching all of it again and again, until you know it by heart-like Friends,-but that still won’t be enough. I may write begging letters/stalk Lena Dunham until she gets out a restraining order against me, until she agrees that she will continue the show indefinitely. I have never laughed so much, or looked forward to watching anything more, than this show.

That concludes my wish list! If these top four things can be rectified, that will make me extremely happy!!

Thanks for reading!

xoxo

    I love the urban foxes/toddler analogy and also the stool chart. I would add another specimen though – the pretentious restaurant plate smear. My daughter produces these when she has been a bit constipated and then has some relief from being fed lots of soft fruit. And the urban foxes’ excretions look similar when I’ve run through them with the pram – so annoying. Totally feel for you about the snoring problem. Hope you find a solution. #bigpinklink

  2. May 23, 2016 / 8:12 am

    Wow, I’ve never (fingers crossed) had to deal with the snoring issue. Hopefully never will!
    As for foxes, I have a cartoon one on my purse. The checkout lady at Boots commented on it recently saying how lovely it was, how she loved foxes and fed them at the end of her garden (what?!). Erm, ok I like the cartoony-cute version on my purse but the real thing in urban areas? No thanks! Blinking scavengers. Am sure there’s something you can get to scare them off – tiger poo maybe? or is that for cats? Good luck with that anyway 🙂 #bigpinklink

  3. May 23, 2016 / 8:17 am

    Oh, this made me chuckle 🙂 Oh my goodness, Mother would agree with you on the snoring – the amount of times I hear her shouting SHUT UP to Father. Noisy sod. And your stool chart made me laugh – I never knew that urban foxes were so brazen!! As for wordpress, I am very technologically challenged in that department, hence the simplicity of my own blog (I had to give up messing about with it as it was getting me v angry!) Completely agree. x #bigpinklink

  4. May 23, 2016 / 8:27 am

    When you find the cure for a snoring husband please please please write a blog post on this so I may do the same! My poor husband has spent more time on our sofa bed than any guest it was intended for the poor thing. Good luck with the cure! Xx

  5. May 23, 2016 / 8:27 am

    Ugh! My fella snores and it annoys me so much! I nearly pushed him out of the bed last night…Oops!
    Oh gosh! Those foxes sound scary! I would be freaked out by them too…
    #bigpinklink

  6. May 23, 2016 / 8:34 am

    Totally with you on the snoring. OH snores like a pig and has a big bruise where I keep whacking him in the side to make him turn over. 😀 #bigpinklink

  7. May 23, 2016 / 8:39 am

    Hilarious! I’ll never forget the first time I heard foxes in London… we heard it in the middle of the night and thought that a crazy woman was running up and down the road screaming. Genuinely terrifying noise and very VERY annoying poo situation. Hope you manage to sort out the snoring… #bigpinklink

  8. May 23, 2016 / 8:56 am

    Oh this really is too funny! My jaw literally hit the floor at your outburst to your husband – never knew my mouth could open so wide – I do now! OMG – just hilarious – I’m still laughing! But I feel your pain – my hubby too snores and I am frequently vacate to the kids’ beds as can’t bear it – drives me to distraction! Oh and wordpress – I know!!!! Enough said. thank you making my Monday morning very very entertaining! #BigPinkLink

  9. May 23, 2016 / 9:14 am

    I really should not have attempted to read this whilst eating. Images of fox poo will now be repeating on me all day… I recommend my husband’s cousin to sort out your wordpress issues. I am a total technophobe and he build my website using wordpress as the basis and it is super easy to use. Ping me if you want his details.
    #bigpinklink

  10. May 23, 2016 / 9:50 am

    Must get on to Girls and give it a squizz! And just FYI; tipping my husband’s snoring must be drowning out your husbands. Can’t hear it down here in Oz. #bigpinklink

  11. May 23, 2016 / 9:50 am

    love this!! great post. I’m on blogger and have days when I wish it would be such a dick!! LMFAO #bigpinklink

  12. May 23, 2016 / 10:07 am

    Hilarious!!! I giggled and chuckled. The snoring, yes!!! Only I feel guilty so just lie there and weep or remove myself…

    Foxes. It’s that screechy noise they do when they hump *shudder*

    And seriously doesn’t Word Press get easier? I’m new to all this and the formatting crap and how images DON’T GO WHERE I ASK drives me to distraction!!! My poor husband has heard all manner of shouting come out of my mouth on a pleasant evening. Especially when it replaces a photo instead of putting a new one where I asked. Is this an iPad thing?

    OK now I’m annoyed just talking about it! A really enjoyable read. Thanks 😊

  13. May 23, 2016 / 10:09 am

    hehe the foxes and toddler comparison was so funny. I don’t know much about foxes, I have only ever seen a couple when we were living in the country, they looked pretty cute. We are now living in suburbia since 3 weeks ago, haven’t seen any yet, although we have a big reserve and lake behind us so I might. I have seen loads of Kangaroos there. My 6 year old son loves foxes though, he has foxes all over his bedding, and fox toys on his shelves. I can’t imagine seeing them everywhere, I would probably freak a bit if they came too close. #bigpinklink

  14. May 23, 2016 / 10:22 am

    My hubby snores too, mainly after drinking wine! He wakes with strange bruises from where I’ve elbowed or kicked him in frustration when he refused to roll over! My solution: Make sure I drink more wine so I sleep through it!! Nothing worse than sleep deprivation- totally sympathise!! xx #bigpinklink

  15. May 23, 2016 / 10:36 am

    Oh your first two really had me laughing. I now have images of a rowdy group of foxes all living it up and daring each other to a poo off. As with with wordpress. DON”T GET ME STARTED. It hates me #bigpinklink

  16. May 23, 2016 / 10:53 am

    Loving your new site love, looks lush! I echo your sentiments re WordPress, I feel like I need some sort of degree qualification in it just to grasp the basics. So much so I actually paid someone to build my site for me because I’m THAT technology inept. I hate wordpress and all it comes with. #bigpinklink

  17. May 23, 2016 / 11:06 am

    haha! the snoring I get! the husband is ridiculously loud! if he dozes on the sofa, I can’t even hear the tv, when its up full!! it drives me mad! and the foxes ARE going to take over the world! we’ve just moved to a new house, and the foxes in this area are nothing like the scrawny, starving, scared, runt ones from where we used to live. These ones are healthy, fat, kings of foxes, that I kid you not, had the pre-teen running in to tell me she was sure there was a lion in the garden! It was just sat at the back of our garden staring us out, I think it was possibly eyeing up my youngest daughter as its starter course for dinner! huge! we closed the doors, and started banging the windows to scare it! Nothing! haha- fun post! #bigpinklink

  18. May 23, 2016 / 11:22 am

    My god, the foxes! I am currently engaged in a bitter battle with our neighbourhood fox (or maybe foxes!) – they insist on pooing in my raised bed and digging up all my newly planted plants! And the screeching at night – at first I thought it was teenage girls screaming, but no! Now I’m just thankful that our local fox isn’t eating more fruit, as he only ranks a 3 on the chart, which makes it easier to clear up!! #bigpinklink

  19. May 23, 2016 / 11:27 am

    I am with you on the snoring! I actually took my phone out last night and filmed him snoring just to show him this morning as of course, he insists, he doesn’t snore!!! Agghh!! #bigpinklink

  20. May 23, 2016 / 12:12 pm

    Feeling your pain with the snoring, the foxes and wordpress. Although I think foxes are beautiful, I don’t like the yarping at 3am which causes my dogs to lose their minds! #bigpinklink

  21. May 23, 2016 / 12:28 pm

    I’m sorry as I know that I’m supposed to be ultra sympathetic and not at all rolling around laughing at your snoring torrent of rage and your fox poo traumas but it really is very funny! (To read – not to roll a pushchair through I would imagine.) I’m with you on WordPress. In fact blogging in general is just so bloody complicated when really all I want to do is type some stuff and it show up somewhere. I have a post scheduled along these very (blog I.T) lines for later this week so I’m pleased that I’m in excellent company! xx
    Thanks for hosting #bigpinklink

  22. May 23, 2016 / 12:36 pm

    Oh I haven’t seen girls but I will look out for it now. The toddler/fox comparison and stool samples are genius! But I know urban foxes would freak me out too. I must admit I’m the snorer in my house!

  23. May 23, 2016 / 12:41 pm

    Well you aren’t asking for much 😉
    I hear you with the snoring, my husband snores terribly and no amount of nudging seems to make him stop. The worst thing is that it wakes me up with a start and sets off my palpitations, so then it takes me ages to go back to sleep again!

    We don’t see many foxes round here, I put that down to the fact that we don’t have a Waitrose in our town.

    Thanks for sharing the Bristol chart always a pleasure to look at ha ha!!! I’ve not seen Girls, is it on Netflix? I need something new to watch until Pretty Little Liars starts again in June.

    #bigpinklink

  24. May 23, 2016 / 12:50 pm

    I hate it when a great series ends. I still miss Friends, ER and Gilmore Girls and I am in mourning for the last of The Good Wife. #bigpinklink P.S Those foxes sound creepy.

  25. May 23, 2016 / 1:26 pm

    Totally hear you re the foxes issue – we have loads of the bastards round where I live, and they wake me up all the bloody time. And piss/shit in my garden, which STINKS. Hate them.
    The snoring issue is definitely sufficient grounds for divorce, in my opinion…!
    #BigPinkLink

  26. May 23, 2016 / 1:32 pm

    I love love LOVE girls! It’s the best tv show in a long time. Lena Dunham is just fantastic. Is the new series out then? I though it was going to be a while but if it’s out, then I know what I am doing! I am with you on the WordPress stress and the snoring, I kicked my other half the other night and damaged his already very dodgy knee… Oops. Another fab post lovey xx #bigpinklink

  27. May 23, 2016 / 1:52 pm

    Haha I retweeted an ‘opportunity’ from Bloggers Required the other day, looking for people to test anti-snoring medication. GET ON IT!
    #bigpinklink

  28. May 23, 2016 / 1:54 pm

    Hmm, do we live near each other?! There is a fox that regularly lifts its tail on MY doorstep too! Filthy beasts. #bigpinklink

  29. May 23, 2016 / 2:08 pm

    I love this! A poo-off? So that’s what they’re doing. Yup, same in our hood.
    I also have a husband who snores to kill. I physically abuse him in equal measure to the mental abuse inflicted on me by his emissions.
    Need to watch Girls.
    Thanks #BigPinkLink

  30. May 23, 2016 / 2:08 pm

    I feel you with the snoring! My other half doesn’t, thank god. But I just went on holiday and had to share a room with my Mum and it was UNBEARABLE. I’d wake up every morning with my pillow wrapped around my head! Also loving the fox/toddler analogy. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were in cahoots somehow and joined forces to take over your neighbourhood. Xx #bigpinklink

  31. May 23, 2016 / 2:33 pm

    Haha this has had me laughing away. I love the Bristol stool chart, when my dad was in hospital at one point we were all in absolute hysterics looking at it! The foxes sound grim. And don’t get me started on bloody snoring, when I was pregnant it seemed like I would just drift off and then what sounded like a pneumatic drill would start next to me!! Love Girls, too, Lena Dunham is a genius. #bigpinklink

  32. May 23, 2016 / 3:51 pm

    Oh chick you have broken me with this post – I can’t stop laughing! The poo chart!!!!!!!!!!! Foxes are bloody horrible so I do feel your pain! And snoring is totally non negotiable!! I haven’t seen Girls but I’m guessing I should! Loved this post honey really funny. xxxx #bigpinklink

  33. May 23, 2016 / 4:01 pm

    Oh my goodness! Laura Dove’s idea about filming the snoring is so genius I might have to do that! My husband also snores like the rumblings of a tube train – both low and high pitched at the same time. It is quite something. Luckily, so far the punching and insulting route has been working out for me 😀 Hope you can get it sorted soon

  34. May 23, 2016 / 4:23 pm

    Snoring…not cool! Urban foxes…not cool! I hear you on the WordPress issue too…I was a regular visitor to Youtube to figure out a whole list of things I couldn’t figure out. ‘Girls’…I’m in the dark about this one but I promise to go and watch it…perhaps a petition could be drawn up? Great post – very funny! x #bigpinklink

  35. May 23, 2016 / 5:55 pm

    My husband snores so bad!!!!!! Its not every night but when hes snoring I can forget sleep. This is on my list of things that need to change!!! Great read.#bigpinklink

    Great wishlist my wife would completely agree with the snoring lol thanks for hosting #bigpinklive

  37. May 23, 2016 / 7:42 pm

    Oh, my eyes! That poo chart!

    I can totally understand where you’re coming from on all of these though. I haven’t got into Girls at all… I just found it really depressing – should I persevere? Or is it too late now?

    #BigPinkLink

  38. May 23, 2016 / 7:57 pm

    So funny. It was hard not to imagine Keith Lemons urban fox sketch whilst reading this!
    So I have to check out GIRLS…where can I find this? Netflix? I am still grieving the loss of breaking bad in my life nearly two years ago, only softened by the recent comeback of game of Thrones season 6…talking of which I need to go and watch tonights episode NOW!
    Thanks for hosting #bigpinklink!

  39. May 23, 2016 / 8:00 pm

    Such a funny post! So much to identify with though!! I’m especially feeling your pain with the WordPress. Yes, why is it such a dick?? #BigPinkLink

  40. May 23, 2016 / 8:13 pm

    Great title! Snoring – my husband and I do this when either of us has a cold. He comments in the morning that it was like sleeping next to a pig and I am just amazed – how does he sleep through it?! I in contrast lash out and shout and am generally quite mean, I don’t intend to be but obviously sub conscious me has even less patience than day time me. I would be really scared of urban foxes! Did you ever watch that Mighty Boosh episode? Isn’t it crazy you live in Bristol and see them constantly but I live on Dartmoor and haven’t seen one yet. As for Girls – well that’s my next series lined up after PLL…currently on ep 6 season 6 of gossip girl watching it soooo slowly to last. Don’t know how I am going to cope. Last night I dreamt Bart Bass told me I wasn’t good enough for Chuck. I was probably snoring at the time…. #bigpinklink

  41. May 23, 2016 / 8:30 pm

    ANY post with the Bristol Stool Chart in it is riiiiiight up my street! hahahaha! and as for snoring…don’t make me go there… #bigpinklink

  42. May 23, 2016 / 9:39 pm

    Ewww the poo chart! I live in Bristol too, and the garden is basically a giant cat litter, to be shared among the local cats and the sizeable local fox population. A few years ago, they all died of some horrible fox disease, but they seem to be coming back. Oh, and I haven’t seen Girls, but if it’s anything like Sex and the City I might need to watch it. #bigpinklink

  43. May 23, 2016 / 11:37 pm

    Your thoughts on Word Press made me chuckle. I’ve recently set up a new blog over on there and it caused me no end of bother initially. Thank goodness my husband is a complete techno-wiz and saved me a few grey hairs and sleepless nights!

    #bigpinklink

  44. May 24, 2016 / 1:07 am

    My dad snored like that when I was a kid and it drive me nuts. So glad my husband doesnt. Im sorry you have to deal with that on top of the normal mom lack of sleep. I have never heard of urban foxes like that and hope I never have to. Good luck fixing all four #bigpinklink #triballove

  45. May 24, 2016 / 2:42 am

    I can totally relate to the snoring thing >.< My husband sounds like a walrus stung by a wasp during the night and I can tell you it's not exactly conducive to a good night's sleep. Most nights I end up falling asleep with my earphones in my ears blasting music! Hang in there, the poor guy can't help it!
    #bigpinklink

  46. May 24, 2016 / 7:54 am

    Hold up….Season 6 is the last season of Girls?!?!?!? This can’t be true. I’ve been waiting for another season to pop up!! I love this show, I feel it really depicts my life (if it were in New York and I was a bit younger). I don’t even know what to say now I’m so sad. ; )

    I’m sorry about your husband snoring, but had to laugh when you asked politely that something was happening on his face hahah. Uh yes on the WordPress, I swear my code always gets fucked up and it’s not me, I live with an expert programmer!!! #bigpinklink

  47. May 24, 2016 / 8:47 am

    im a GIRLS fan – the latest season was great – in my opinion and I hope they don’t end it either :/ as for snoring, I don’t have that issue – I do however have a hubby who judders. I know right?! for the past 3 years we pretty much don’t sleep together. I like it like that now! #bigpinklink

  48. May 24, 2016 / 9:08 am

    This made me laugh so much, especially the fox poo chart – I will now be grading fox poo when I see it on the streets! We have a lot where we live, and it sounds like someone is being murdered when they are howling. Totally agree with you on WordPress I’ve had my fair share of issues with it recently. Claire x #BigPinkLink

  49. May 24, 2016 / 11:34 am

    I feel the same about WordPress! I am not technical at all, it drives me cracker. x #bigpinklink

  50. May 24, 2016 / 11:44 am

    Too funny! I love it. I’m the snorer in the group and I’ve been told by the Mrs. to head to the sleep clinic for apnea immediately! Oy. Great analogy. WP is a bugger, and I need to watch girls. Thanks for hosting #bigpinklink I’m happy to be here!

  51. May 24, 2016 / 1:00 pm

    Oh God, I was with you on the snoring until I read your outburst then I actually started to feel a bit sorry for Mr (decibel) W – too funny! 🙂 The foxes thing would totally freak me out! WordPress, I’m just thankful for YouTube videos so I can navigate the basics! Also a big fan of Girls, such a funny/smart series. x#bigpinklink

  52. May 24, 2016 / 4:10 pm

    My husband snores too and OMG!!! It drives me offing batty. And then he gets mad because I wake him up to tell him to roll over and he says “I’m snoring because I AM SLEEPING” Well I am not and my sleep is more important lol. #bigpinklink I tried clicking on the one that was posted but the link didn’t work so I came and commented on this one. Thank you for hosting.

  53. May 25, 2016 / 6:51 am

    I feel your pain even as I laugh at it!

    I drive my wife made with my snore, not because it’s loud but because she finds it really annoying. Her snore is as nothing to her mother’s that is often responsible for false alarms for earthquakes..

    Foxes! Urban foxes have no fear. I’m glad ours aren’t as pooey as yours. When they aren’t ripping open the bins only to find nappies (hah!) they munch their way through whatever toy has been left out in the garden. Poor, poor Barbie…

    #BigPinkLink

  54. May 25, 2016 / 8:58 am

    I am sooo lucky that my husband only snores when he is drunk. Though, that does mean I am sober and so it is at least ten times as irritating! Agree with wordpress. Very lucky that I have very computery savvy friends who help me for free but I did spend an hour last night trying to make a picture clickable. I feel your pain. Really entertaining post! 😊

  55. May 25, 2016 / 10:35 am

    Apparently the new thing is two master bedrooms – one for each spouse. This is because of the dreaded snoring! Have you tried ear plugs? WordPress – don’t get me started. I had such a hard time figuring it out & I still have to google things! #bigpinklink x

  56. May 25, 2016 / 2:37 pm

    Eurgh the snoring thing – I have taken to kicking my husband really hard and then rolling over and pretending to be asleep. He usually wakes needing the loo so this buys me 10 minutes to get my kip on! As fo rthe foxes, when I lived in Peckham they used to scream all night, I used to dash to the window thinking someone was being murdered (it was Peckham) but after a while I just learnt to ignore it, I don’t think I could have ignored steaming piles of fox poo on my front door thoug, that is just rude! Thanks for hosting #BigPinkLink

  57. May 25, 2016 / 6:45 pm

    totally with you on wordpress being a dick. I have seriously questioned my intelligence when trying to install widget. but its not me. Its wordpress. Great post. as always 🙂

  58. May 25, 2016 / 8:58 pm

    It’s so annoying when your favourite series ends and you haven’t found a new one yet.

    Fortunately we don’t have foxes, but we do have someone who sounds like a happy hibernating bear when asleep … And it’s not me! We’re blaming the gerbils …

  59. May 27, 2016 / 2:32 pm

    Now i just feel like I’m missing out.. What is Girls? I have never watched it. Agree with you that snoring is annoying but thankfully I seem to be the snorer in my household. #bigpinklink

  60. May 29, 2016 / 9:01 pm

    The snoring had me nodding my head so hard it almost fell off. My husband’s snoring used to be off the charts batshit crazy but apart from the odd night here and there, it has got so much better since he lost weight (erm not that I’m saying your hubby is overweight btw). The worst thing is that he DOESN’T BELIEVE it is/was as bad I make out even though others have told him. No I don’t mean other women in the bed or the neighbours (although I’m surprised they’ve never come knocking).
    The toddler fox thing made me HOWL. The poo-off. Hilarious.
    Funnily enough I thought your site looked different recently; so you switched to WP. Sorry to hear it’s driving you mad; give me a shout if you need help.
    And finally – gulp how do I say this because you know I love and adore you but omg we so might part ways on this – I just can’t get into Girls. I don’t think I have ever had quite such an aversion to an actress as I do towards Lena Dunham.
    Okay I was just being melodramatic re parting ways. I’d never do that (cos I need your hip flask) 🙂 #BigPinkLink

    I’m going to try sooooooo hard not to snore at Brit mums now!!!! 😂 Foxes spraying is my big bugbear, (fox poo is beyond vile though, our dog loves it. Vom!), I just found out our neighbour feeds them!! Gah!

    I still haven’t seen Girls – I keep meaning to watch it! I entirely agree about snoring. I HATE snoring. I makes me want to hit people, and I’m not at all a violent person. Haha – foxes ARE a bit like toddlers now you mention it. However, and I realise most people disagree with me, they don’t bother me. I quite like foxes, in fact! #bigpinklink

    I had a boyfriend who snored so loud I could hear it through the wall when he slept in the other room. Needless to say I am quite glad that relationship is over!

    I’ve never seen girls! Not one episode. I aim to rectify this!! 😃 The foxes are bad here. Keep spraying our garage wall. It stinks!
