It’s been a stressful week and I’m so glad it’s over. It started off terribly when my house was broken into on Monday. Thankfully there was no major damage but they took some of my mother’s jewellery, including her engagement ring. So I’ve spent the week feeling really angry and sad about it. I just don’t understand how someone can do that to another person. It’s absolutely disgusting to break into their home and root around all of their stuff. What kind of person thinks that’s acceptable? I don’t care how difficult or hard someone’s life is. It’s just horrendous. Still, there’s not much we can do about it now. It’s just bullshit. So a new week will hopefully mean a better one. It’s getting nearer to Christmas and, fingers crossed, I’m basically done with my presents. Although, I feel like I’m spending a shitload at the moment. It was my Christmas party this week and, despite being fairly restrained on the drinks front, I did end up caving and buying a fairly big round of drinks near the end of the night. One shot of tequila and suddenly I’m super generous. Just waiting until January and my year of sensible living awaits.
