Today has been bleugh!
Good evening. I'm going to put this out there now I'm in a bad mood! I don't like blogging when I'm in a bad mood but hey I didn't blog yesterday so here I am mood and all.
I worked all day today which was ok, not the best day but still ok and then we walked home now as most of you who are regular readers know we walk about 3-4 miles to get home. Well today it rained but not just a small amount of rain it poured. We were soaking so much so that my coat that I put on the back of one of our chairs keeps leaving a pool of water on the floor and as fast as I clean it, it comes back again.
The children were so wet and cold that I had to run them a hot bath and make them a hot drink to try and warm them up. I put the heating on and put their pyjamas on the radiators so that when they got out of the bath they would have nice warm clothes to put on.
Even though I know I did my best to make them feel better I still feel like a bad mum, when I saw all the other children being picked up from school and mine looked at me and said "do we have to walk home in this mum?"
And we walked through the door and they are shivering I just feel awful and wish I had a little old car so that they wouldn't have to walk home in the rain and they wouldn't have to sit and wait for an hour because their sister has an after school club. It hurts that I feel I am failing the people who make my life worth getting up for every morning.
I also still feel cold and unwell because the rain and cold went through to my bones.
Well I'm sorry for the moaning and whining.
This evening I popped to the shops to get some hot dogs for tea as that's what everyone fancied, I also got 2 packs of mini croissants (6 in each) reduced to 38p for breakfast over the weekend, and a trifle reduced to 58p for dessert.
The house has remained tidy all week and the children have commented several times how much easier the mornings are now that they put everything in its home the night before. Life really is easier when everything has its set place.
Its a quick post tonight as I need to head back out in a minute to pick my eldest son up from work.
I hope your day has been nice and relaxed. Take care xx
