... is what is needed for me. I seem to be a bit down more than I am up at the moment. Silly little things like the tumble dryer not working, and trying to sort it out by myself, have ended up with somebody looking at it for 2 minutes, and quoting over £200 to get it fixed (but they happen to have one much cheaper in their shop). So now I feel taken advantage of, and like a silly little girl!
Having looked after a dog in the summer holidays we now have a flea infestation. I have found 7 on me alone in the last 24 hours. So I am faced with spraying insecticide everywhere, which I hate having to do, but it is getting me so stressed finding these b*ggers everywhere I cannot relax in my own home, and cannot wait for more gentler methods to take effect.
We never seem to have enough provisions in the house, this is mainly due to the fact that Sophie is so hard to take to the shops. But I am going to have to bite the bullet today, as we are completely out of toilet roll, and that is one thing we cannot do without!
Despite me trying to be organised, everything seems to be taking so much longer at the moment. It is my own fault for taking on so many things when I already have enough on my plate ie 4 children! But I do not want to give up anything like the allotment, my cello, breastfeeding support.
So what to do?
I know many people facing far greater worries, and far greater problems at the moment. So I am grateful I only have these silly things to deal with. I am going to face these things head on, deal with them, stop thinking about them and start doing something about it, and try to be in a slightly happier mood for when the boys return home from school!
