Happy Father’s Day

Another one rolling around already, wow it comes and goes so fast. I seem to always repeat myself when it comes to holidays, I say things like “time is going too fast, someone slow it down” yeah like that lol. But even if they repetitive, it’s just so true. So today is Father’s Day. I’m in England, and my father is in America. We have a funny relationship, well not funny just not cool I guess. We are not close, I mean I love my father, don’t get me wrong. But as an adult and after my mother passed away God rest her soul, he has become distant. When my mom was around, sure he took some interest but not like most dads would. That kind of made me feel sad. So after mom passed away in 2001, you would think it would make us closer? Well it didn’t! He somehow managed to find another partner, not marry her but just living with her, and ever since then he didn’t ever seek to see how both me and my sister are doing. Growing up he seemed to favor the boys more. Is it like that with fathers? So anyway regardless of all that, I still love him and well I just don’t let it bother me all that much. So Happy Father’s Day to my Dad, my brothers Eric, Omar, Nelson and Jo who is the father of the her family and she does a dang good job at it too, and last but not least the newest addition to the family, my niece Amanda’s baby’s father, whom I forgot his name and have to take a moment to remember… YES it’s Kyle haha, well it’s his first Father’s Day, so Happy Father’s Day to him as well!! And Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers and soon to be fathers out there, and those women who have to take the father’s roll in the family because the father is not there. I think that covered everyone, I hope!

So the painter just arrived, 30 minutes late but who cares lol. I just wanted to mention it. He’s a really nice and cute haha guy. He’s putting on the gloss or whatever it is on the window edges or whatever it is you call them things, I’m in the bedroom and I can smell it lol. Omg my feet are still sore from helping packed for two days. And thats not even over yet, we got more stuff to pack that will come later. We’ve recently come to a problem, well not we but I am sort of involved even though I don’t own the property, but yeah a bit of a snag on the estate agents behalf, talk about rudeness, anyway their performance was asinine to say the least. I won’t get into details but don’t ever deal with Wakefield Estate agents in England they are the rudest people ever. Anyway Al is taking care of business with that! I had an appointment yesterday to view a room but had to cancel because of this new crap that came up. The guy seems like such a sweetheart, he’d make an excellent flatmate, I hope he text’s me back. Anyway other than that, we have no bed or chair in the flat haha because most of the things were taken to storage, so I’m sitting on two cushions in the bedroom floor as the guy works in the lounge painting. We do have a couch, but its probably cold out in the lounge as he has to leave the windows open, and if you remember seeing pictures of the lounge they are huge windows, and it’s a bit chilly out, I hope we don’t get rain because he’s putting the last coat on the balcony floor, and would hate to see that washed away. Ok well thats all for now, Happy Father’s Day everyone!
