Thursday. Yesterday’s birthday celebration was a success. My little one loved having a picnic and didn’t complain about not having a cake or pizza. He had the donuts he asked for and also salami and cucumber sandwiches. I love when they choose something easy.
I wanted to make a surprise for him so I asked my oldest son to take him somewhere while I got everything ready. I said to my 2nd son: “We have only 10 minutes, please hang this bunting on a tree”.
One minute later he came back laughing like crazy. I asked: “What’s so funny?”
“You’ll love what I did”


He made me laugh.

Then we brought everything to the front yard just in time to see my youngest son’s eyes open really wide because he was super happy to see his surprise.



I’m happy we got to celebrate his birthday outdoors.

I love autumn. It’s my favorite season and here everything looks amazing. My only complaint is that it could get freaking cold. So it’s like having only 2 weeks of autumn and then several months of winter, until April if we are very lucky.

I just got a letter kind of accusing me of lying about my income. I don’t have an income. I get alimony. So when I had to answer the question about how much did I earn in 2015, I wrote exactly how much money I got.
The letter said: “We assume that the amount you wrote as annual amount, it’s actually what you get per month. So you owe us …… euros”.
I almost fainted. It took me reading the letter several times to understand what they meant.
Then I took the phone and called them.
“Why do you assume that I get so much money per month? I clearly wrote I get that per year”
“But nobody can live with so little money”
“I know, but what can I do? That’s all I get and I can prove it to you”
“Ok then, send us the copies and we’ll correct the mistake”.

I wish they corrected the stress they caused me too.

  3. Oh man, I hate bureaucracy! Every time I get a letter from my kid’s state funded insurance I’m shaking when I open it.

  4. I love that everyone enjoyed the picnic! Yay for him loving what you did πŸ˜€

    And I’m VERY used to that kind of stress over the finances. I’ve been disabled and “poor” for decades. It’s not fun :-\ The nonsense these people can cause can be infuriating, and I’ve wasted years (literally, if you put it all together) of time dealing with all the stuff that’s had to do with my medical and disability stuff. HATE IT!

    • That stress sucks!! When you have to explain and they treat you like a liar… It’s awful and I’m sorry you had (have) to deal with that for so long!
      The picnic idea was great. He won’t forget it soon specially because the weather is not always so nice this time of the year! πŸ™‚
