You know those days when you wake up in the morning and you're already in a poop of a mood?
That was me today.
It starts with a late night, over indulging on garlic bread which you wake up still tasting and then finding your three your olds little head sharing your pillow while you lay curled on your side on the edge of your bed, any sudden movement leaving you on the carpet at your bedside.
Your mood worsens as you end up standing in the freezing cold wind for over an hour watching U8's football. Instead of being involved in the game in any way, shape or form, your child is the one who spends the entire game jumping in mud, playing with his socks and taking his mouthguard in and out, eleventy billion times! Let's not forget the other two charming small people attached to your legs also bemoaning the freezing cold wind, their boredom and the lack of worthwhile food items.
Frankly I felt worse because it must have been Peppy Parent Day today as every other parent seemed so happy and proud of their poppets, cheering and clapping at every touch of the ball while all I wanted to do was screech across the football oval to leave his fucking socks alone, stay out of the goddamn mud and at least pretend to be interested in the bloody game!!!!
Kinder maintenance this afternoon had in no way improved my mood. Taking cold grumpy children and a jumpy puppy to pre school to help sweep and clean was a wild mistake. Their enthusiasm for raking waned after five minutes, poor Milo freaked the other families' little boy out and again there was a lack of worthwhile food items! I find it hilarious that out of six families rostered on for the weekend only two managed to show up.
My Sad (whingy whiney) Sunday is now being Vastly Improved by this large and delicious pepperminty Haighs chocolate frog, a wee bit more random granny joining and for my viewing pleasure The Mentalist and Castle. For the ad breaks I have the sweet new Mollie Makes magazine at my side! All the grouchy tired people are in bed, including the husband (who's snoring I can hear from the other end of the house!) so the best bit is I don't have to bloody share with anyone!!!!
First world problems really are so easily solved!
Have you had a Sad Sunday or have you had a Super Sunday?
