One Very Big Rant

Good evening!

This is not going to be a Sophie post tonight. I am having a lot of difficulty on Facebook these days because of the views of one particularly arrogant little bitch on there. I will refer to her as Idiot.

Anyway, here is a list of facts about the stupid girl, I will address each one after:

She is 19 years old

She has a son

She preaches herself as a Christian (Bible following and quoting)

Despite the above, she thinks it was okay to have premarital sex and get herself pregnant…so her baby is a bastard

She believes that there is no excuse for circumcision and that medical reasons are ‘myths’

She believes that gay people are an abomination

She describes Barack Obama as a ‘N*****’

She will not teach her son about Father Christmas

She is a ‘White Nationalist’

She has previously told me I am poisoning Sophie by formula feeding her

Ok so let’s address each point here. The fact she is 19 and a Mum wasn’t what I was getting at. Most teenage mothers are the most fabulous mothers out there. It’s the fact she is 19 and spends all her time quoting things off the internet as pure fact and shows her complete lack of maturity and total childishness. She has a little boy not yet a year old who is not allowed to know about Santa because she is and I quote ‘a Christian’. Let me ask – bonafide Christians who quote Leviticus and the Bible regularly tend to follow it to the letter right? She didn’t wait until marriage for sex…which I’m sure is a rule or something? I can’t stand people who use a religion as a reason for insulting people.

Anyway. She says she is a ‘white nationalist’ which in laymans terms is ‘someone who hates anyone of a different colour to white and all gay people are disgusting creatures who go against God’. Seriously?? I am sure we are in 2012 here and not 1928??? God tells us to be tolerant and to be accepting of all, and yet someone who calls herself a Christian goes against that! Yes, Leviticus says that man who lie with other men are abominations, but that was the OT not the NT and 3000 year old rules are for that time and that time alone. Also, God made Man in His image…surely that means he then created people to be homosexual right? He accepts them as they are. He made them that way. And Jesus had two Dads!

Not everyone believes in Father Christmas which is cool, but to stop your child from the magic of Christmas by saying it’s not in your religion to do so is so hypocritical of her. There is a serious lack of intelligence in this girl! She believes ear piercing and circumcision is mutilation and that even if there is a medical reason to do so, that must be a myth and you are just a bad bad person. Total and utter bullshit. Honestly that is the most ridiculous crap I have ever heard in my life! And then she has the audacity to tell me that I shouldn’t judge HER for not letting baby learn about FC!? Yeesh. Delusional is not the word!

There are not many people that I know of who have such a damning effect on me in such a negative way. She makes me want to vomit up my own spleen. Any parent knows that the decisions they make are the RIGHT decisions for THEIR family, whether that be breastfeeding, circumcision or any other debate out there. As long as it works for you then it shouldn’t be a problem. For this Idiot child, she believes her beliefs are the ONLY ones that are right and anyone else is wrong. Like I said, total child. Will not listen to reason or even compromise and I think she is setting herself up for utter, utter failure. But you know what? She can mess up her kid. Sophie is formula fed and is happy. Sophie is happy – and that’s cos of me and her Daddy.

Personally, I hope her little boy grows up to be the most effeminate gay man who has a thing for large black men ever. 


Santa Baby

Christmas is just around the nearest corner, it’s getting cold outside and everything smells Wintry. If you don’t believe me, lean out of the nearest window and take a good deep breath. Smell that? See, told you. Also, the Coca-Cola ‘Holidays are Coming’ television advert has been on and that MUST mean it’s nearly Christmas.

I love Christmas – the real Christmas – where you can smell roasted chestnuts and real trees in the streets. Where you can hear charity bands singing carols in the shopping centres and precincts. Where you have midnight mass (well, 6pm mass for me!) and mistletoe and a satsuma in a stocking. I love the weight of the table groaning under yummy Christmas eats. I love fairy lights and Father Christmas and the magic you see in a little ones eyes when it’s Christmas morning. I love being with my family most of all, because they are what make

Our Christmas dinner – NOM

Christmas for me. We don’t all get together that often, see, so it’s nice to eat, drink and watch the Eastenders Christmas Special together.

I don’t like the fake Christmas. I don’t like the synthetic Santa suits in the shops. I don’t like the displays that come out in September, even before Halloween and Bonfire Night. I especially don’t like the emphasis on presents.


Christmas is a time for giving but that does not necessarily mean the latest gadgets!

I know this particular post goes off the usual ramblings about the beautiful little critter in my life, but I am dumbfounded by the amount of toy adverts that are blasted across my TV screen at all hours in the day. I mean really, Santa over there <– is right! I know a lot of people spend months shopping for gifts etc – but the Christmas lights have been up since the beginning of November. Whatever happened to the Twelve Days of Christmas? I put up a tree and decorations 12 days before and they get taken down 12 days afterward, for luck.

The pressure on people now to buy THE latest presents for every single immediate and extended member of their family is insane. Husband has the kind of family that will actually judge you for the amount of money you spend on them. They can enjoy the £5 box of Celebrations I will buy them and like it in my opinion. We are not flush for cash. There are 7 members of my immediate family alone and even they will get what they’re given and like it.

So many of my friends are spending ridiculous amounts of money on their children to ensure they have the latest shoes/clothes/gadgets that I just have to feel sorry for them. I am not rich or made of money, so therefore people can have what I can afford. If they don’t like the card I get them, they can throw the sentiment was in the bin. If I’ve sent a card in the first place they can be happy I at least thought of them.

And then there are the loan sharks – Provident, Payday Loans, Shopacheck… all designed to tempt and treat ‘last minute cash bursts for Christmas’. What a way to start the New Year, in debt.

Christmas is about family. It’s about the warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you see the holly wreaths and hear Hark the Herald Angels. It’s about lighting the Advent candles, and opening the Advent Calendar. About toasting goodwill and health and enjoying each others company while eating far, far too much. It’s about wearing the horrible clothes someone bought you because it’s too cold outside not to. It’s about looking at the Christmas tree topped with a Star and feeling a ridiculous hope about the year to come.
