Ok So I had my first break-down last week since being an ex-pat (well aside from the scooter incident). For the last 2+ weeks my Buddha has been sick, then I got sick and it was awful, all Buddha did was cry all the time not sleeping etc and I thought it was teeth (which it was), but my 3 boys suffer terribly with teeth, ear infections, cold, coughs, high fevers, irritability so I really feel for them.
So it wasn’t a great week, and on top of this Zed had SO SO much work on that he was at the office till 6.30-7.00pm every night (this would be totally fine IF I wasn’t having such a sucky week). And then out of the blue, Zed is told that he is off to Germany in 1 week :( Great opportunity for him, and he was so excited, I on the other was not ha ha ha let me explain why.....
Zed and I had had discussions about me and the kids going back home for a visit and leaving him here in Balikpapan, Which he was NOT at all impressed with he reckoned "if I have to be here working then you should have to be as well" I can totally see his point, so I had not asked to go anywhere without him (we like to spend all our time together anyway). (And this trip is for work)
Well now I was rope able, furious, ahhhhh here I was with a screaming sick Buddha, feeling like death warmed up he was leaving in 2 days to go away for 3 weeks...........and he thought it was appropriate to go to the pub?
But it’s always harder for the people that get left behind and don’t go away!
But we have found some great friend here in Balikpapan and lots of things to do, Boof and master T signed up for aus-kick yesterday they had a great time, Boof saved 2 goals, and Master T kicked 1 goal... oh so PROUD mummy!
