I can breath freely again.

Miss M can now relax.

I have been rather stressed for the past week as my contract was up at the end of March and no one had let me know otherwise. It is surprising how much the stress of not knowing what is happening with your job can affect your day to day life.

I have pretty much been a cranky crabby bitch and this is a shout out to all of my friends who have had to put up with my foul mood over the past week and a half. Especially Jailbait whom got the brunt of it over the weekend!

I went to climbing with him on Saturday and went all passive aggressive on his arse. That coupled with some serious PMS almost - but thankfully not quite - ended our lovely friendship.

Jailbait: With concern Are you mad at me Miss M?

Miss M: Refusing to look at him No, of course not. Why would I be?

Jailbait: I don't know ... you look ... angry?

Miss M: No I'm not. I'm just going to go play over there ok!

Jailbait: Really worried now What's wrong?

Miss M: Very loudly NOTHING OK!

Jailbait: Ok .. are you sure?


So the good news is that my contract has been extended until end of June and then, of course, we are right back to square one in the stressing unless something comes up sooner.

But until then I can relax with a new contract and a slight pay rise. And Jailbait can relax and stop getting yelled at for no apparent reason.

Good times.

You are female, we're used to it.

We expect it. Usually once a month ;)

Ye he did say that on the way home.

In a text message.

Once he was sure I wasn't going to throw anything at him.

Job related stress and PMS do not go together at all! And don't you hate it when someone ask if you're okay and you say yes, because you want to avoid the situation all together; yet that question makes it irritating even more? At least it does to me LOL

Next time have a bag of chocolate handy! It helps! :)

The Divine Miss M said...

Ye I felt really bad for him because he could do nothing right and was seriously upset with me.

He just had to open up his mouth and I wanted to murder him.

Let's hope I'm ok this weekend as we're all going away together!

The Chronicles of a Fashionista in PDX said...

Ooooh!! Where are you going?? :)

The Divine Miss M said...

Isle of Portland in Dorset for a climbing weekend :)

The Chronicles of a Fashionista in PDX said...

Awesome! You'll be in Isle of Portland climbing, while I'm here in Portland, Oregon climbing at the Portland Rock Gym. :)

The Divine Miss M said...

Oh wow that is funny!

I hope you have a good un honey :) Once you're experienced and leading I can come to the US and we can go on a climbing break together!

MidniteGem said...

If not for random outbursts of stress induced anger friends wouldn't appreciate the awesomeness of you 99.99 percent of the time.

KaB said...

Happy thoughts! Think happy thoughts! Otherwise a death stare normally works! Or a slammed door! Be careful climbing...that's some scary shit mixed with a little PMS & stress!

sweets said...

this is good news, i know, but why do you do this to yourself... can't you get a longer contract?... i would permanently be nervous or pmssing ;)

The Divine Miss M said...

@gem - naah it's alright, Jailbait is the one who will get the tail end of my PMS as always ;)

@meghan - SO TRUE!

@kab - We'll be fine, I promise :)

@sweets - I so DO NOT have the time for that! Well photo's anyways. Plus my house is a mess :P

@kyk - NOTHING means everything under the sun and things that you possibly can not even imagine at this point in it.

@misstig - Just don't kill the cats ok? Chat to you laters

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Sounds like a good time to relax, celebrate, and mend fences.

Of course, when a cranky member of the double-X squad says "NOTHING", most men (well, except for the really dim ones) know she's lying, but it's just not a minefield any sane guy would want to negotiate.

The Divine Miss M said...

@blonde - Yup, poor him. He told me last night that he'll be avoiding me in 28 days :P

@michelle - Well once I was on the wall I was happy as a pig in shit, it was when I was on the ground! The actual act of climbing is very destressing.

@em&ct - Why do people keep tagging me in things?!?!!

@nick - Yup, that is this weekend and I can NOT wait!

@kyk - Uh huh. Cept when you ignore us and take our word for they're being NOTHING wrong we get even more pissed :P
