So, looks like once again luck is not on my side, or anywhere near my side, or even within spitting distance.
As far as I can tell we will be staying put. The one thing that would have made my life and that of the Hobbits so much nicer is once again out of reach and it is so frustrating, so horribly frustrating that I could just burst.
Not ideal. In fact very far from ideal. But what should I expect? It seems to be my lot in life that the easiest path is the one denied. While others seem to glide through life enjoying this and that I get the shitty end of the stick.
It is hard to see the good side in things at the moment, it is very hard to see anything at the moment.
