All Hail My Cup Of Tea
The day didn’t start well. Today that is.
We had run out of milk. Well there was a small amount but the kids needed it for their breakfast and I had no cup of tea. I should have known at that stage that the day was on a downhill trend.
Rather than give a blow-by-blow account of how disastrous my day has been so far, I’m going to just stick it in bullet form so it doesn’t sound so bad.
- Tea (or lack of)
- Buggy off balance (tipped over on the way home from the shops as I overloaded it)
- Terrible Three Meltdown
- Toilet Training Mishaps
- Burnt Jam
- No Dinner Yet
- Dog Poo On My Shoe
- Headlice Letter
- Delivery Man Roulette
On the plus side I now have a cup of tea so the world is slowly turning to rights before I condition and comb my own hair as a precaution as I’ve only just got the boys to bed after doing theirs.
So my day hasn’t exactly been the most glorious experience but you know I’ve had worse. I think I should go off and do the lottery or something as my luck can only change tomorrow. In the meantime maybe this might make your day a bit better?

Those are the days that make you wish you had a fastforward button!
Oh I really did! Shouldn’t be wishing my life away though.
a day without tea is a disaster – my beloved OH brings me a cup in bed every day! bliss!

~I would love to bring my grandson to this for christmas
It’s a lovely prize alright. Best of luck!
You had my maximum sympathy at dog poo on shoe. Awful!
My day was pretty great! Twas a lovely day for a cycle to work. Baby’s sore eye is much better and three year old was a very good girl! I tried a new recipe for dinner (nothing fancy, pasta with watercress and garlic) and everyone ate it all up. All small things… But most importantly no dog poo. Would love the nexflux sub and tickets. Just got a shiny chromecast on sale yesterday, think they would go well together. 😀
Oh do let me know how you get on with the Chromecast? Pasta with garlic sounds like just the ticket for this kind of weather. x
Oh you poor thing. That really does sound like a humdinger of a day. Have another cup of scald, you’re worth it.
Thanks Neasa, I stocked up last night alright!
Oops my day wasn’t as bad as that but nothing to write home about either!! Hope tomorrow is better for you 🙂
I hope you have had a good day today Sandra?

things can only get better, yesterday is history, tomorrow is our future, today is the presen, so enjoy it, with the ones we love
Very true. Thanks Catherine.
My day wasn’t much better! Take out your terrible three tantrums and throw in my 12 year old preteen meltdown/tantrum/life is soooo not fair episode and I’m right there with you!!
Oh I know what that’s like too! I’m not sorry we’ve a while to go before revisiting that fun parenting challenge! 😉
My day was great by comparison! And only two more sleeps till we bring our two little boys to the man himself in FOTA! Can.not.wait!
Ooooo that’s fantastic, you must be like a big kid. Have a ball Trish!
sounds like a day in a mums life
Ah yeah, never a dull moment around here!
I hate days like that where everything goes wrong!! I just spent the day waiting to get back into bed after two days of no sleep…..walking zombie came to mind!!
Oh I hope you got some rest Nicole? x
Yup, had a fairly crap day yesterday too in general but did have some good points too , was just too wrecked yesterday to appreciate them until this morning : )
Yeah it was a bit like that here too. I had good parts yesterday but it was a bit of a wood for the trees moment. I hope today was better?
sounds great, count me in…
Sure thing Belinda. Best of luck!
You can freeze milk in ice cube trays and defrost it in an emergency like this one! I’m glad you survived though! 😉
Oh Jaki that is fantastic. I’m saving that one up for future reference. Thanks!
Fantastic prize,would love this,have entered on fb too! 🙂
It is rather lovely alright. Best of luck Jennifer!
Yes, nothing seems quite as bad once you have a cuppa! Hope today goes better 🙂
Ain’t that the truth? Thank you!
Hate those headlice letters, have to be so vigilant with them. Hope the next day was better
Oh me too. So glad I’ve boys and it’s not the long hair nightmare when the 15yo was younger let me tell you!
Love your blog Catriona! Hope today is much better….
Thanks Fiona, miles better!

Oh I tell you once I got that mug of tea things rapidly improved!

i freeze some milk in ice cube tray & on a monday morning, theres always a cube for the morning cuppa,
You’re the second person to recommend that. I’m off to do it now!
Would love to win the Netflix subscription – we haven’t had TV for 8 years now and big fans of good movies on DVD, but a trip to the cinema would be an extra treat 🙂
How was my day miles better than yours? It’s 8:30 and all 3 snallies are asleep so a quiet cup of coffee is possible, maybe even with a biscuit. Maybe more a case of inches better 😉
i had a lovely lie in today and tasted my first homemade apple pie of the season as christmas baking has begun in my house
This would be a lovely day out 😉
A cup of tea solves all our problems, never without it. Would love the subscription for xmas for the cold nights in with the kids
