Thank goodness it’s May. April was a tough month for us. We received one piece of bad news after another. You know that saying, “When it rains, it pours.” That’s been our life lately. I won’t burden you with our troubles, but I will say no one died, no one is sick, no one is getting divorced, and no one lost their job. Saying that makes me feel a ton better. Things aren’t that bad. However, I will say that we’re stressed, frustrated, and tired. At least we have each to lean on to get through this. That always helps. And I won’t lie, I could use a drink. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I do hope you see light at the end of this tunnel soon. Meanwhile, it does look like you have fun distractions.
Thank you. Things will work out. Just a lot of work to get to that point. Have a wonderful weekend!
I’m in – stressful week here too. How many pubs can we hit in one night do you think?
Well we may have to stick with half pints, so maybe four. Or we could have a half pint at one, then a cup of tea, half pint … then we could go to a lot more!
Ok, but I’ll switch the tea to pop :). I’ll be right over!
K … if you want ice you have to ask for it. Don’t forget.
I’ll drink to that!…a better month to you!
Cheers to a much better May!
Mmmmmmm Beer, you and Cindy have inspired me, now I need to find someone to take the kids/drink with. Mrs BC best be prepared.
maybe Miles and Att can babysit.
Don’t tempt me
Can you imagine the wreckage?
Bah ha ha!!! Now that would be interesting :).
The carnage would be epic but if it’s at your house that’s fine by me
Not sure I’d get the better half’s approval
I suspect my better half might have something to say on the matter too, shall we be in trouble together?
that’s a tricky question.
I’m usually in trouble, so I’ll fit right in LOL!
What Frank said 🙂
Are the boys OK?
Shoot, I should have clarified that. Yes, the boys are fine. Well, Miles is telling me it’s lunch time by banging his food bowl. Subtle he is not.
That’s coz his ‘sad hungry eyes’ strategy wasn’t successful…
oh when it comes to his food dish he goes straight for banging the bowl. Much more effective. He uses his sad eyes when he’s begging for my lunch
He’s got it all worked out…!
That’s my problem. Both boys are much smarter than me. I don’t have a chance!
The beer will help 🙂
A drink with some nuts (whether friends or from a tree) always makes me feel better. I hope May brings you less frustration and stress!
the caption “enjoyed by the thames”! lovely phrase 🙂 i hope may brings you flowers after the stressful “rains” you’ve had lately.
Thank you very much
Your pints look delish. Let’s hope they numb the frustration your feeling today. Cheers!
they always help me put things in perspective.
Here’s to you and yours, TBM.
That’s a lot of beer 😉
Have a nice weekend TBM 🙂
Another weekend is upon us. thank goodness
Good for you…my weekend is still going to be filled with work 😦
Hopefully the semester will end soon for you and you can relax some
It will end next week 😉
And then a much deserved rest
Hope you get to relax with a few good beers this weekend.
Not much relaxing last weekend and this one will be just as busy. but we’re making progress towards our goal.
I know how that feels 😦 one thhings goes wrong then eveyrthing else seems to follow. It will get better though! Enjoy your weekend, hope it gets brighter for you 🙂
The domino effect can be depressing sometimes. But we’re getting there. Hope all is well with you
I hope you have a Merry Month of May. Hang in there and enjoy an extra pint.
Might be a few extra pints this month. Thanks!
Sorry to hear you had a lousy April. May’s got to be better, right? Have a great weekend, TBM.
So far May is starting off better. Fingers crossed
You know what, it’s Friday and I do believe I will join you in that! It is pizza night afterall, so I feel it’s a moral imperative to had a cold pint too! Cheers to a better and brighter May.
Pizza and beer. What a great start to a weekend
I find that suds with a bud gets me through tough times. I hope that quaffing suds with your significant bud has a medicinal effect and offsets the tough time.
Suds with a bud. Love the sound of that.
I too hope you get to chill out and put whatever has been dogging you away for the weekend. I love that Miles bangs his bowl. Clever boy. Chevvy just pounces on me until I get the hint.
Att uses Chevvy’s approach and he gets frustrated since I can be a bit slow.
Sorry it wasn’t a better month. But here’s to marvelous May!
Hug from Ecuador,
Sorry to hear April was so stressful for you. Here’s hoping that May ends up being heaps better!
May is usually a good month for me since my birthday is later this month
I trust the weekend has seen a few pints sunk by now TBM but not your spirits . Here’s to May being a up beat no stress month for you both 🙂
No stress month. That sounds nice!
Nice to put the troubles on hold for a little while with a trip to the pub. Glad that things are looking up. And a see that you have a new book coming out soon! That’s good news!
Pubs keep me sane. Thanks!
Enjoy your beer, TBM!
All your troubles shall soon pass. You have the stamina and endurance to move on. It’s always a blessing to have someone to lean on. Have a great week!
Thank you for your kind words. My better half is my rock. and of course, Miles and Att help
Fun photo series. I hope things are going better for you!
I have my fingers crossed for this month. Thanks!
I like the whole beers around the world theme here. That definitely helps relieve a long day of stress and frustration. Hope the move isn’t killing you. 🙂
