***Hey beautiful bloggers!***
Sorry I have been quiet, been very busy with work and
I promise to make it up to you guys ASAP…
I want to introduce my 2nd guest blogger, the
ever so lovely Sophie over at: Saved in drafts
here to share a lovely little rant about boredom.

I will be back blogging soon I promise but
for now it’s not about me. It’s about this lovely lady!
I love this little piece as she like me is happy to
talk about having a poo, a lovely person with a
lovely little blog, interesting/true opinions
and from what I can see an amazing Mummy!
You be sure to follow her!
A blogger I am honred to have recieved
2 awards from… Such a sweetie!
OVER TO YOU SOPH!
How can anyone be bored these days?
I have a few people on Facebook and all they
ever have as their status is how bored they are…
What a boring fucking status for one but aside
from that what they hell do they want me/the rest
of the Facebook world to do about it? If they aren’t
self-sufficient enough to step away from the laptop/phone
for long enough to find something entertaining or even
remotely interesting for them to do by themselves
then do they really expect us to feel comfortable suggesting things?
If you did …would you feel confident enough that they would be
able to do it without accidentally killing themselves or someone else in the process?
Bungee jumping would be out the window for a start!
I don’t understand it at all, I really don’t.
What’s even more shocking (to me) is that the people moaning on
fb are the ones with kids… I have a 4yr old, as you probably know
by now and at the moment he is home with me most days except
for every other weekend when he goes to his Dads.
Having a child with you 24/7 is hard, the simplest of tasks take 5
times as long because you have to consider them at all times,
you have to think about when they will be hungry and when they
will need help in the toilet, how they will be entertained while you’re
cooking dinner and what they can play on their own safely while you
have a bath or take out the bins…
Having a poo on your own is near
impossible with kids in the house and silent sex is a fine art so I can
honestly say I’m not bored when he’s around…I would love to be
bored for once but even if I had that chance I would find something
else that could be done.
With kids and I guess it’s probably the same with work you build up
a mental list of the things you want to do when he goes away/when the
weekend comes around and you finally get a break… Leisurely poos included.
The people I am talking about have actually been bored while their child
was away! How is that even possible?! Why don’t they have a list of things
to do in their free time? Even simple things that childless people wouldn’t
get that excited about? Things they can do on their own? Are these people
really sitting around twiddling their thumbs and missing their kids during
their short period of freedom?
I LOVE time to myself and I think it’s sad when people can’t stand their
own company! Ok so I blog which you could say is something I do to fill
a lonely void but its something I enjoy doing. I would or I do in fact
class blogging as a reward, a bit of ‘me time’ If I didn’t…
Well I wouldn’t do it would I? It’s something I can do while in my pyjamas
if I want, I can pick it up and leave it as I want, I don’t have to cook for
my blog or clean the house, it actually prefers it when I neglect those
things because I have more time to give it attention. Besides, I don’t
think I am lonely, I just have a lot of thoughts and live with 2 people who
are either too young to understand them or too tired to take in deep and
meaningful as soon as he gets home every night.
After a day with Tyler
and repetitive ‘mummy mummy mummy….’ I relish in the peace and
quiet of blogging…. Just the light tapping of the keyboard, its nice to be
able to let loose and get my thoughts typed up as and when I want to.
I am assuming these people don’t blog and to be honest I bloody
hope they don’t because I can only imagine the posts…
They would be as boring as this one lol (I know the bored status is
a lot less boring than a blog post about boring statuses but shh,
I’m blogging this out of annoyance rather than boredom) . Anyway,
they can obviously read and write! They have Facebook for gods sake so
the only thing stopping them must be the lack of imagination
and again I find that sad. If you don’t have imagination then you use
experiences and talk about them. But if these people are that bored
all the time I’m assuming they don’t have many interesting
experiences to re-live either.
I just don’t get it! If you’re bored… fucking DO something!
Stop moaning about it, pick up a book, listen to some music, draw,
paint, invite someone over, call someone for a chat, catch up on all the
shit TV you couldn’t watch while your kid was around demanding
cartoon network! Heck if you’re that bored, go and have a w*nk
or something! That would kill some time surely? And that’s just stuff
inside the house! There are literally unlimited amounts of things these
people could do both in and out of the house regardless of money or
lack of… If they really were that bored. *Note: I am not suggesting
you go and w*nk in public or start a life of crime*
Get a fucking hobby, go bird watching, do an online course,
watch a TV series on demand, have an hour-long bath with no
distractions and take your time with that poo! Even have a nap if you
want! Because you can! It’s called the weekend/a break/you time/relaxing…
How can you get to a point of having nothing to do? And how can you
find that boring? Like I said, I would love to have nothing to do and
on the rare occasion the house is spotless, we have no plans AND
Tyler is away at the same time… I still have plenty to do because I’ve
waited 2 weeks to do them! Therefore, not only is it stuff to do but
it’s something I’ve (sadly) looked forward to doing.
Am I alone on this one? Am I missing something? I genuinely don’t
understand it. Why don’t people do something to make themselves
happier? Is that it? Are they sad and lonely and depressed…
Is it an attention thing?
I feel bad for them, I really do but me responding to them is only
going to spur them on to do more ‘bored’ statuses in the future because…
Well they got what they wanted didn’t they? Someone’s attention.
Well, next time I find myself even close to being bored do you know
what I’m gonna do? Hide these bored status writers from my news
feed… lol At least its something to do. 🙂
