    Guilt For Nothing.

    I always find myself apologising for every little thing. it's worse when i've had a drink or two,and lately when I saw my friend from work. He had to tell me off last night for apologising for laughing at him (I'm painfully shy and get nervous quite easily) but I'm quite hard on...

    Aren't Puppies Great

    Yes they make messes and chew up everything inside and outside the house.  They are quite the little terrors.  I had two foster dogs, Bonnie and Clyde, who figured out how to open the back gate and chewed the brick on the house.  Clyde discovered how to climb the...

    I'm Sorry

    I'm sorry I'm pretty damn useless most of the time. I'm sorry I can't grasp simple everyday things like, using the washing machine or calculating money and Finances. I'm sorry my job means I work mainly nights, and that you work mornings. I'm sorry you feel like I'm pushing you...
