Grumpy me

Wow, a month has just flown by and it really amazes me how time can fly even when you’re not having fun! Yes, yes, I’m still little Miss Grumpy at the moment and still living in a B&B. However, there is light at the end of this very long and narrow tunnel! We’ll be finally moving into our flat on the 20th and that’s only just over a week away.

Living in a grotty B&B (why or why doesn’t the B&B lady ever clean?? In fact, I’d even clean the place if it weren’t for the fact that we’re paying them good money to stay there and by principal, we’re paying so I shouldn’t’ have to clean!) for a month has resulted in bad diet, bad sleep and a very grumpy WoknSpoon. And don’t even mention the fact that Australia lost to England in the Rugby World Cup last weekend!

Despite having access to a miniature kitchenette, I haven’t really felt motivated to cook and we’ve been living on takeaway food and ready-made meals (including packaged fresh and canned soups) that we can throw in the microwave. I’ve never actually eaten those ready-made meals that you find in the local supermarket before this episode and I think I never will E.V.E.R again!

In fact, the thought of a ready-made meal is making my stomach churn so we are running out of things to eat…which makes me even grumpier.

Anyway, no lovely photos of mouth-watering food to share however I do have one photo which always makes me smile: Hubs in Germany with a gigantic meat skewer!
1 week to go and counting!


  1. Hang in there, you're almost at the end! xoxo

  2. My heart goes out to you! I couldn't survive on packaged meals like this , I hope this week flies by for you! xo

  3. I lived in places like that before too. It just makes you appreciate home more!

  4. Almost there! Thinking about you during this trying time. I bet your brain is now going a mile a minute with all the dishes you want to make. Good luck!

  5. Welcome back, nice to see a new post after so long. It does feel like more than a month has passed. Congrats on the light at the end of the tunnel and can't wait to see your yummy stuff again. Hang in there.

  6. Yep, hang on hang on. I don't think I can stand eating packaged meals for so long. I rather eat bread. Good luck and hope to hear from you again.

  7. Aww, hang in there sweetie! One more week, do you want me to send you some ramen? :)

  8. Almost there... Hang in there and you'll be in your new home sweet home! :)

  9. I've tried this as well, but not as long as yours. But it's going to be ok soon, don't worry, it's temporary. Cheer up! Hope everything will be fine soon!

  10. Just one more week, it will be here before you know it. Hang in there!

  11. Too bad about Oz losing to England. England seems to be doing pretty well, eh?

    Well I'm glad you're able to see that light which I'm sure is getting brighter and brighter as the days go by. It ain't fun living out of a suitcase. I suppose you can think of it as an adventure? :-)

  12. Yes, time sure flies even when one is not having fun (thank goodness).

    I don't think you could be grumpier than I was when I was in the same situation 8 years ago.

    I do empathise with you. How many more sleeps before moving into new flat? :)

  13. wow your hubs is CUTE! you are one lucky girl :D

  14. roA week can't come soon enough.

  15. My dear, I hope your condition of living will be getting better soon in no time. I know how it's feel having take away all the time such as chinese take away, fish & chips shop and kebabs plus those supermarket food such as from sailbury, tesco and mark & spencer. Be patient and i am sure you will move into a nicer place. don't forget to update us.
