Sorry folks , I need a bit of a rant today.
So fed up of the rain and mud everywhere . It is muddy on the way to school , and the chooks have been wading for a couple of weeks now. Of course , it's not just mud that they're wading through , or that I have to wade through to get to open and close them up every day .
But , that is not my main grumble . I am fed up of people. Not all people you understand , just some of them , and sadly I have to come into contact with some of those people on a regular basis .
I am bringing up my children to treat others as they would like to be treated themselves , with kindness, consideration and respect , so why isn't everyone else ?
Several days over the last couple of weeks , my son has been upset by an older child who will not let him join in a game of "Tig" in the school playground in the morning . There are around 20 or so kids playing , of varying ages ,and both sexes and yet he is not allowed to join in . No good reason , other than she has decided he can't . Even if it is not "her game" she tells him he can't play.
My son is seven years old , and a sensitive soul who just wants to run around with other kids , and have fun.
I asked the kid (who I know) the other day to please stop upsetting him and let him play, and I was ignored. Today I made sure I wasn't ignored when I stated that it was unfair to not let him play ,especially when there are so many playing , what could it hurt ? The answer was to stop playing until he moved away .
Why are people so horrible ?
I am beginning to wonder if me and my family have big neon signs some where that say "treat me like dirt" . so fed up of people being rude , ignorant , inconsiderate and just downright horrible.
What is the world coming to ?
Like someone else mentioned a few days ago , I too do not watch the news or read papers etc. The only news I get is from MSN or what other people tell me. It is too depressing and I have to deal with plenty of crap on my own doorstep.
I need a break .
Will be back soon with some stitching and stuff.
Take care ,
Second finish of the year
