The grumpy thread


Recommended Posts

Well, I am unsure if this is the right thread to post this in, but if it’s not, I apologise & mods feel free to move it.

I have not been on here for a while, in fact, I was last on here in Nov 2019.

So, what has happened since then?
Well....quite a lot actually.

Me & Mrs OC split up for good in February there, which has obviously had quite an effect on me, as I didn’t see it coming, but that’s the way life goes sometimes I suppose. Just need to pick myself back up & get on with it.

So, I have had to re-locate to another house, which was a pain in the arse, you don’t realise how much stuff you actually have until you have to gather it all up, but I am settling in now.

Our boy is now 2 years old.

I still have my CLK 430 & my Rover 75.

My Daily is now a 2005 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro.

 

So, I now have more time on my hands than I ever planned to. 

To keep me going, I have decided to really concentrate on getting the Mercedes finally sorted out & on the road (I know, I have said that before), but this time, I am actually going to go do it, as it will take my mind off of things & I need a distraction.

obviously, this lockdown doesn’t help anything, but it is what it is. 
 

Apologies if this is the wrong thread, but I couldn’t find the “Jeremy Kyle” thread..? 

I also apologise if I have now killed this thread , I didn’t mean to ?

Been there last year and it still hurts. It gets slightly easier though. 

You can be fun daddy now, leave all the other shit to the ex...

One of the new fuel hoses arrived for the BX.  What I thought was a connection on the old one is actually just a bracket and the hose itself is about four miles long.  Not faffing with that today.  Oh but wait, what's this?  Why yes, that's another diesel leak from somewhere and the car barely wants to idle.  It's leaking from somewhere between the engine and the subframe near the driver's side engine mount, but not from a component you can actually see.  That is going to be fun to locate.  I bet another hose has let go.

When dads mk1 bx broke down on the way back from SF the fuel lines were the problem. They had swollen up and blocked internally and the metal pipes looked very thin too . I ended up replacing them with 8 and 10 mm nylon pipe with push fit couplings on the tank . The 90deg ones were perfect for the top of the tank and the bend around the rear footwell . The nylon pipes also fitted the clips on the chassis rail perfectly . Just used a short bit of rubber ( gates ) hose to connect under the bonnet .

Agree, It does indeed hurt, I am not going to lie.
But, I can’t control things that are out with my control & that’s what I tell myself.

As for the fun daddy now, I definitely am going to be (I was before we broke up) unfortunately, at the moment I can’t get him because of the current lockdown situation & not mixing with other people.
 

Still, FaceTime is helpful, so I still get to see/speak to him.  

Anyway, apologies for derailing this thread with my shit ??

At the moment I am not looking to get with another woman, but I suppose nobody knows what the future holds.
We have not started divorce proceedings yet, but it’s something that will need to be done. 

As for my situation, we just became 2 different people & drifted apart over the last year, but I wasn’t expecting it to end, we still got on etc, it wasn’t an acrimonious break up. Just one of they things I suppose, Life is unpredictable sometimes.

You can still see your kids if their under 18, they can travel between 2 places. 

IMG_20200409_082720.thumb.jpg.9ced5c08c6875bd08abfa94adac993a3.jpg

I've got mine next week. Was planning on driving up to dad's but thays well out the window now... Hoping tesco do playsand... 

I know that they are allowed to go between places, my family want to see him also, which is not advisable at the moment, plus, my ex (it’s weird calling her that now) is also not willing for me to get him due to worrying about the current situation, & I respect that & I don’t want any blame should I get him & he becomes unwell, his health & wellbeing is important to us both (obviously).

So for now, FaceTime until this lockdown is relaxed/over. 

 

But also, thank you everyone for the comments, it’s good to know that I am not the only one going through or have been through a shitty time.

So, thank you.

I had mine last night, their going back in a minute. They can't see their grandparents either, their only going between the ex's and mine, which I think is worth it. 

I've got them all next week and we can't go anywhere... Might fill the fridge with beer now so it's very cold... 

That would be ideal for me, but my ex worries about him & the current situation we are all in just now, so I have to respect her wishes & I understand why, it’s not like she is flat out refusing to let me see him etc, it’s just because of the current situation. Normality will return at some point (I can’t actually wait for that) & I will be able to actually get him ??

Sound alike way less arse and ear ache to keep the status quo then! 

Mine keeps wanting me to have them more, but I'm still working half days and filling the other half with projects!

Definitely, that’s the way I want it to stay, it makes things easier for everyone going forward. 

As for your situation, you can only do what you can do, you are taking them & you still need to do your things out with & she should understand that?
Then again, saying that.....some women are hard to figure out at times.

Welcome back and no apologies required. If it got something off your chest and helped you to share, then this is indeed the right place to post it.

Thanks Cavcraft. Appreciated ??

I just wasn’t sure if this was the right thread to post it in. Yes, it does help get it off my chest.
It’s good to be back on here also, not that I was stopped from doing so, just life got busy until we broke up.

I know I'm not the only one, but this fucking situation is driving me to the brink. It's great having my littlun more at the moment, but I don't do well without routine. So many times I've drifted to 'that' dark place, it's worrying. Feels really silly writing it.

 

As a side point, my neighbours are still smoking weed out their windows upstairs, meaning we can't open our windows, and even if we don't, the smell comes in through the vents anyway. 

Estate agent said report to council / police. 

Council said report to police. 

Police didn't come back to the report. I'm sure it's not worth their time investigating a bit of weed usage. 

If it carries on much longer, they may have something more serious to investigate... ?

Just been shopping. Ooooooooo fuck me what a palaver. Had to queue to get in (which made me grumpy) watched a woman try to park in a space that was (in total honesty) big enough to park a decent size lorry in, she gave up eventually and drove off, limits on everything you could buy, loads of people with scarves pulled over their noses, the shop was filled with pissheads on their daily jolly to ill up on the booze isle, every front page of every newspaper had the same shit on it about coronavirus and Boris's fight with (he's sitting up in bed you know!) it and weeks more of the lockdown. To cap it all, I very nearly had to be served by the slowest woman on the planet but let someone else go in front of me so I didn't have to as her uselessness really annoys me.

Got out and set off and some twat bloke waved at me to slow down - I was doing about 15mph!

I am not going to survive for long at this rate as my blood pressure will kill me before any virus gets a fucking chance.

Fucking car insurance is due in May, every single quote website has jumped by £200 to nearly £600+ for my fourth year (3years NCB) insurance on a FUCKING K11. 

 

I am - close to just putting it on fucking sorn, wont matter using it since we are likely on a distance based lockdown soon.

Try Adrian Flux, dirt cheap (just shit if you have to claim). Tell them last years premium and see if they can beat it. 9/10 they will just to get the trade.

Just phoned up my insurer, they came down on their price which shocked me when I mentioned how it jumped £200 over last years price even though I have made zero claims and have earned zero points.  It's now pretty much same as last years but has all the added protections and NCB protection thrown in.  

 

That'll do me.

Saw that coming and went to big Saynesburies yesterday mid-afternoon. Short queue, took less than 5 mins to get in. Had everything I had been instructed to get though green veg was a bit thin on the ground (result!). Cashier waiting for me, so no delay there.
