Default Cor...green eyed monsters out!!!

It is well and truly unleashed in me today I can tell you!!

About 6 months ago a new family moved into our road from Newcastle. Nice kids, about 8 & 10, never spoken to the Mum and Dad though.

Well, this morning when I was taking the kids to school what should I see outside their house? A bloody 20ft container and all of their furniture GOING ON to it. The stuff is wrapped up all snug, just like our stuff was when we moved out here, so they're deffinitely heading back.

All I wanted to do was stop the car, hug the woman and say "You lucky, lucky bugger!" Then tell her just how jealous I was!

Totally agree, on a low today also (well for a while now), God it's just so boring here (Perth) in the winter, it's fairly dull in the Summer but at least you can get out and about a bit more in the Summer. What is there to do in the winter here when it's pi**ing down with rain and you've got no family to call on ? You can't even go shopping. Sorry just fed up and can't wait to be home !

Don't know the people so would feel a little nosey popping in after six months! Poor woman though, if only she'd known that i felt the same as she did she'd have had someone to talk to who understood how she felt.

It really made me feel sick with envy when I saw them locking the container up . I just so wanted it to be us doing that. I don't know how the hell I'm going to do another 15 months here I really don't. Can you tell I'm having a bad day?!!!!
