boxed out! boxed out!

hiya, even quicker quickie tonight.I`m in bed trying to figure this kindle contraption out! The typing is very easy but each time I think I have got the hang of it, it does something weird & I am left flummoxed! mind you it doesn't take much to confuse me these days.

I've been in bed for hours, no idea what time it is now but my eyes are dropping so must be sleep time.

Just need a quick double rant. Today my workshy ex husband had his Atos assessment, he has peripheral neuropathy & does have mobility problems (mainly getting off his backside) . he does have a lot of pain & is on a cocktail of tablets but he is a voluntary radio presenter, drives the car, and manages to do most things for himself, now that I'm not there. well according to him the assessment was no problem, the doctor understood his problems & even said he should be able to get a carer, and that he had nothing to worry about. I was speechless! I know he exaggerates but he's so jammy that he will get out of it. He has done so much work for the radio station & is a whizz on the computer he is perfectly capable of work! Oh well, it's not my problem anymore.

My other rant, well worry really is about my removal men.I booked them through an online comany & paid a deposit.I had an email to say that he had put me down for Friday but when I emailed him about details he said he'd phone that night . but didn't.After 2 days I emailed again asking if things were ok but still nothing. I'm moving in a week! I can't even do much now because it's weekend. I don't know if I'm worrying too much, but I'm gettinG RATHER STRESSED!

ok rant over, sleep time hopefully

night all

If there is a phone number I'd start burning a hole in them - hope you get an answer and quick. Threaten with ombudsmen (I'm sure there is one for removals) if he doesn't get back to you.

Husbands and ex's talking bo****ks - goes with the territory I reckon. Hope the Karma train is warming up...

Hugs to you (btw - what do you think of the Kindle? I'm assuming it's the Fire?)
