I’m starting today again.

I am in a mood today.

I actually have a really busy day and seem to have pulled 5 minutes out of nowhere to sit and write but if I don’t I know my mood won’t improve.

I said to my kids this morning ‘I might as well talk to a wall,’ then realised I sound exactly like my mother. And for the next five minutes Noah mocked me, mimicking what I said, but to a wall. “Put your socks on, Wall.” “Put your shoes on, Wall.” “Grab your school bag, Wall”

*bangs head here*

It might seem cute but when I’m in the middle of my terrible mood, it’s not cute. Even in the slightest. Not even a little bit.

The bank calls. Phoenix ignores my 10,000 requests to get out of the car. I have a delivery to get ready for. I need to hang washing out. I call my husband and take my mood out on him.

I need more coffee.

Can someone, anyone, come and pluck this terrible mood that seems to have rooted itself into my spine out of me please? I’m in the thick of it and can’t think enough to do it myself.

Or just send wine. I’m sure that’ll do the trick. I feel like I need to write today off and start again. Where’s the snooze button?
