Wednesday Rant: Today I am Mostly Annoyed with Myself (including a book club update!)

At the weekend, I could have ranted my socks off. Today, my enthusiasm for moaning has waned and I need to work so it's not going to be the epic tirade I launched into last week.  So what's eating my cheese this week?
 
1. Me. I am way too enthusiastic and keep volunteering to do stuff at work that I don't necessarily have a whole heap of time to do. I also keep having ideas for initiatives which I really want to do and they just seem so much more appealing than what I have to do.
 
2, My stinking rotten cold which one week later is still zapping my energy. It's not even properly winter yet - what's with the early bird germs?
 
3. I would have loved to have had a day off today. Not only am I a tad envious of my German friends for enjoying a midweek hiatus, I am positively green that my boyfriend is off to Prague for 5 days.
 
4. All of my tights, which are increasingly necessary in this colder weather, either have hidden holes or roll down. It's NOT attractive to have to hike up your tights in public. FULL STOP.
 
5. I mucked up book club! Only I could choose a book NOT available in the USA. I am not sure what to do as I can't have a book club where I am the only one who has the read the book. However, I've just started reading Anna Karenina - it's about 600 pages - I'm loving it, but not sure anyone would want to take on such an epic book! It's absolutely fantastic so far though. I can't get enough.  Decisions will be made on Friday.
 
In the meantime - what would you guys do?

If yesterday had been wednesday I would have had a lot to rant about.

Today I am much more mellow.

Except we put an offer on a house. The seller is supposedly "very motivated". Asked for an answer by today and .... Nothing. No communication. Nargh!

I am not feeling very rant-ish today either. Must be something in the air. I did check and you can have Amazon UK ship to the US, I do t know how long it would take though. I really wanted to read that book!

#2,4,5 Oh no! Poor you! Who keeps on promising us globalization and global warming and all of that? It sucks that the book is not available! Well, I started Anna Karenina, but I ate all of my superpowers and I felt the urge to take a nap after every five pages.

#1 Welcome to my world, Rosie!

#3 Well, suck it up! ;-) I'm sure you'll do a happy dance when your holiday comes around!

(Was I too mean? Hope not! Otherwise, you have the permission to rant about me next week ;-)

#1 I hear you dear.
#2&3 :(
#4 I have such long legs that I have given up on tights.
#5 Is the book available on Kindle?

My rant: trying to have a garage sale when the fickle weather turns cold is rotten!

Hey, I'm reading Anna Karenina... in English!!! I think that will take me a while as English is not my native language and as my toddler is very needy when I read lol
Have a nice week end ;)
