I have been having another one of those weeks! We have only been back from vacation for just over a week now and it feels like we were never away!
Last week I had to go somewhere and a person where I was at managed, in very few sentences, to make me feel a useless mother! I won't go into the boring details but I came away feeling dreadful and then of course I started to think about other things and anyway one thing and another and by the end of the week, I felt completely blue.
Things are difficult with work at the moment too and then with the weather, rain, rain, rain and more rain, it is making me feel dreadful.
Then I thought of Winnie the Pooh and his little black rain cloud and it made me smile :)
I’m just a little black rain cloud
hovering under the honey tree,
Only a little black rain cloud,
pay no attention to little me.
Everyone knows that a rain cloud
never eats honey, no, not a nip.
I’m just floating around over the ground, wondering where I will drip.
Then it made me sad again as I used to read this to my Boys when they were little and they are no longer little and don't need me to read to them any more!
Are you getting the feel of how I feel this week! I think this weekend I need to do something for me. Youngest is out on a two day camp this weekend where he and four other Scouts have to find there way to a camp via the train!!! As you can imagine I am having kittens about this (there is a leader with them to get them in the right direction if they need it but.....) and Eldest is working on Saturday evening waiting on at a function at the Golf Club and The Girlfriend (who is lovely and we all love her a lot) is taking her driving test tomorrow and well that's about it.
Sorry to moan but oh .........
