FUMING! (with apologies for language)

Absolutely bloody fuming!

Addenbrooks have fucked up AGAIN!!
Ian’s follow up appointment, that has already been moved 3 times, has just been cancelled because it was a nurse review and should have been a consultant review. He’s back to waiting for a review with no idea of how long it will take.

This has now been going on a year and it has been fuck up, after fuck up, after fuck up.
No regard to the fact that Ian is losing quality of life, is relying on a work colleague to drive him to work, is LUCKY he still has a job, has to rely on other people to drive him to his appointments.

Today alone, he’s used the last of his annual leave to be able to attend this appointment and I had to turn down a shift swap to help out at work because I need to attend this appointment with him!


Where do we go from here?
This is literally the straw the breaks the camel’s back.


I will regret this little rant later so please forgive me in advance.

What will it take for the American Government to come up with the balls to make an amendment to the constitution and ‘seriously’ reduce or get rid of guns in the hands of the general public?

I can’t believe there has been yet another mass shooting today in Santa Fe.
10 more teens dead.

The gun violence archive is a sickening read.
So far this year there have been 21,779 gun involved incidents, an average of 157 per day!
There have been 5,406 gun related deaths, an average of 39 per day!
Think about that.
273 people are dying because of guns in America every week!!

The number of children aged 0-11 who have been injured or killed by a gun is 233, almost 2 per day.
The number of teens aged 12 – 17 who have been injured or killed by a gun is 962, almost 7 per day.

At this rate we can expect another 36,581 incidents and 9,087 deaths before the end of the year.
1,631 more teenagers and 466 children will be injured or killed before the end of the year.

And I can guarantee that the colossal idiot running the government at the moment will now reiterate what he said after the last school shooting and that is that ‘we need to put guns in the hands of the teachers’….

Yeah right, because what America really needs is MORE fucking guns!!


The husband is in the bad books this morning.
I actually can’t believe he said what he just said.

As a Star Wars fan I shared a post on Facebook last night of two young girls playing Beat Sabre VR which I thought was awesome. I really would love to have a go.

However, when I showed it to the hubby this morning, he thought it was cool too but as we watched he went on to comment that as these were obviously meant as a bit of advertising for the game, wasn’t it strange how they’d chosen two young girls showing a bit of skin!

I’ve just been online to find a man playing the same game.


Now you tell me, who’s showing more skin?!!

After watching a few ‘men’ playing the game, all I see is the fact that they’ve chosen two feisty young women who are absolutely ‘smashing’ the game, doing it in style and beating the crap out of any man trying to do the same.

The hubby was absolutely flaberghasted when I lost my shit at him.
He kept trying to defend what he’d said and just kept digging a bigger hole.
I’m really disappointed in him.


First of all…. GUNS!!

Come on America.
Enough is enough!!
Time to get rid of them don’t you think?

”’But you can’t do that. It’s in our constitution. It’s our right to have them””

It’s not impossible (just go and read about Article V) and let’s face it, it’s in need of an update, don’t you think?
Or have I stepped on a few million toes and spoken out of line.
I don’t give a f##k really.

And I’m sorry…. for all the people out there that are saying about this latest school shooting, that the person was mentally ill, we need to address the mental health service, it’s not the guns.

YES IT IS THE BLOODY GUNS!! and how easy it is for a mentally ill person to get hold of one.

There’s too many of them and they are way too easy to get hold of.
Apparantly there are 101 guns for every 100 Americans.
That’s more guns than people in America. WTF!!

I think P!nk summed up the situation perfectly in this Instagram.


And breath!!!
OK, I’ve said my piece on that one.
It’ll just be another rant that gets ignored and disappears into the ether.
No doubt, there will be another shooting before long and the whole debacle will start again.

OK, rant number two.

Richard Littlejohn of the Daily Mail is a biggot!!
Anyone who knows me, knows that biggots get right up my nose.

I follow 2 people on Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.
Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black.

Gymnastics, swimming and diving have always been my favourite Olympic sports. Forget all the athletics. So the baby Tom Daley has been wonderful to watch as his career unfolds.

I love films and ‘Milk’ is an incredible film garnering a much deserved Oscar for writer Dustin Lance Black.

Over the last couple of years, their Tweets and Instagrams and Youtube collaborations regularly bring a smile to my face. They have hundreds of thousands of devoted followers who were all ecstatic when they both announced that they were going to become parents by posting this on Valentines day.

Tom and Lance

Wonderful news.

Sadly, we still got people poo pooing all over it.
Most noticeably from Richard Littlejohn of the Daily Mail.
C’mon guys!! I thought we were past all this, especially in the press!!

Even though he tries to wriggle out of his biggotry by saying that ‘I supported civil partnerships long before it was fassionable’ Richard Littlejohn states in his article titled ‘Please don’t pretend two dads is the new normal’

That said, and despite the fact that countless single parents do a fantastic job, I still cling to the belief that children benefit most from being brought up by a man and a woman.

Which is precisely what worries me most about the Daley publicity stunt. Here we have two men drawing attention to the fact that ‘they’ are having a baby.

But where’s the mum, the possessor of the womb which features in this photograph? She appears to have been written out of the script entirely’

OK, this has me angry on several levels.

1 – All a child needs is a loving and stable family environment. It doesn’t matter whether they are brought up by a man and a woman, a man and a man, a woman and a woman or just a single parent of either sex. As long as they are loved it doesn’t matter!

2 – It was not a publicity stunt! They were announcing their news to their fans. Something Richard Littlejohn obviously doesn’t know about.

3 – They haven’t announce who the Mum is because they are obviously trying to protect her privacy and health. The last thing the poor woman needs is to be pestered for the next nine months by paparazzi and press!!

He then goes on to state….

‘What I also find slightly disconcerting is that this story was reported virtually everywhere without so much as a raised eyebrow, as if it would be impolite even to ask any questions about the parentage’

Yes Richard, that’s exactly how it should be!!
It’s normal for a loving couple to announce their happy baby news.
I seriously hope this article comes back to bite you in the arse you pathetic man!!

It saddens me that we still have to put up with biggots.
I still have to bite my tongue, even with family members I’m sad to say, but I have seen huge changes in public opinions in my lifetime and I hold out much hope that all of this will become just plain old ‘normal’ in the future.
Hetero, gay, lesbian, bi, trans…whatever!! It’s what makes the world so colourful.


I still can’t believe that ‘that’ moron has made it to the Whitehouse.

I stayed away from the news yesterday, I refused to watch that idiot get even more attention.

Of course, I speak as a Non-American who has only observed this man through the media but I cannot for the life of me, understand how anyone would want him running their country.
He’s an absolute DICK!!

Of course, now that he has officially been sworn in, the changes have started already. has removed several pages from it’s website.
Climate change and Healthcare have been removed but most alarmingly so have the Civil Rights and LGBT pages.

This does not bode well.
With any luck, the LGBT community will just be left as it is and left alone during DT’s Presidency with nothing to worry about and then progress can continue with the next government.
However, after seeing the immediate backlash when he won back in November, I have an uneasy feeling that things are going to take a bit of a nose dive for that community and my heart is breaking.

Gay rights and Civil Rights could be set back 20 years with this government and it’s making me so angry and I don’t even live there!!!

I’m just hoping that our ‘Female’ Prime Minister has the guts to stand up to this monstrosity of a man.


I’m getting a little bit pissed off now with all the ‘Pro-EU referendum crap being thrown at us by the media and indeed the government who have spent my hard earned money on sending out pro-EU documents to every voter in the country.

Why are the media and government not giving us the opinions of people who DON’T want to stay?
Why are we being force fed opinions from people who just don’t have a fucking clue what the people are feeling right now.

My 18 year old daughter who is voting for the first time was sent a Government flyer reminding her of how improtant it is to vote.
She ALREADY knows the importance of her vote. I’ve made it perfectly clear to all my girls that they should respect what women went through to even be able to vote so I don’t expect them to waste it.

The flyer then went on to give opinions from various people about why we should stay.
AT NO POINT was there an opinion of someone who wanted to leave.

So I binned it.

When my daughter asked me how she should vote, I gave her ‘my opinion’ and then told her to do her research and make up her own mind.
