That’s what a friend told me Monday when I was having my meltdown about the simple things (in particular tech) spilling my cup.
I told Google Mini she was a bitch yesterday because she wouldn’t do what I asked. Im taking to a robot and insulting her, what have I become?
The other week I set FOX to tape and even though it had the F-ing red R next to it, it still didn’t record!
Like when you try something 3 times on the computer and finally give up and seek help and they do the exact same thing and it works!
Or when the phone had an update and changes your whole fucking calendar settings, which you loved (no Cheryl I still haven’t gotten over that).
Or when you ring Apple and the support crew know less about the device than you do, like the iPad doesn’t come standard with a calculator app! (Am I right Jo Carcatsis? 4 hours later and a visit to the store-😖).
Or when your ‘smart TV’ is fucking dumber than a blo….. never mind, and won’t connect to internet so you cant watch Netflix even though you’ve paid for it. C u next Tuesday (Thanks Bachy for that one).
And beyond technology when muppets driving don’t use the turn out lane, or leave a space so big at the stop lights I could reverse park in there but leave 3 quarters of a space when parking for school pickup. Yes Fulham North mums I’m talking about you! Bring on driverless cars if they learn to do that….WHAT! Am I now advocating for technology?
Oh how the fuck do I know? I’m mentally tormented!
On a brighter note I’m in good running to win the Bachy sweeps ATM.
Happy days xx

I was 21 and I was planning a wedding, buying a house and had a job interview for the job of my dreams on my 22nd birthday. You see I was being made redundant and had to find a new job by August. Especially with the new mortgage now. It was April. I worked for CML and my new job was a done deal. All I needed was a medical. And with that, just like that....my life was turned upside down and I was diagnosed with CML, ha ha, I know the irony. My hematologist had a laugh at that too. I had Chronic Myeloid Leukeamia, which was normally reserved for 70 year old men. Quite rare for a young adult to get, so how would they treat it? I underwent two separate trials until finally it was decided my best chance of survival (all be it only 50% chance), would be a MUD BMT (matched unrelated bone marrow transplant), now known as VUD Allograt (volunteer unrelated donor). I was told 21 years ago the chance of finding a match was 1 in 20,000 (and that is everyone was on the bone marrow donor registry). Scary odds. So being the risk taker I am I said "go for it". They found a match and that was my first miracle in this journey. The second miracle was, it worked - new blood type, two different DNA profiles and the miracle of medicine was reborn inside me. The third miracle is my son.
25 years on, I now face a new challenge. Breast Cancer. Certainly not the first person to have cancer, to have invasive ductile cancer, hormone receptive and HER2 +, or to even have a dual diagnosis. But this is not another Webiste about a cancer survivor, this is just my excuse to finally publicly write. Along the way I am hoping I can share some insights I have learnt over the years and at the same time, give you a good belly laugh.
