What to do when your wheels fall off…

So I woke up this morning, showered, checked emails, drank tea, ran for bus, checked business Facebook on bus, went to cashpoint, grabbed pastry to go at Costa for breakfast. Spent the day being as charming as I know how (ie: fairly grumpy, I guess) to an assortment of “customers”, colleagues and managers. Forgot for the second day running to return call to photography client, spent half of twenty minute lunch break on phone to bank call centre and still didn’t get through. Ran for bus that didn’t turn up until half an hour later than it should have, tidied main living room ready for meeting, helped husband and sister carry daughter no. 2’s belongings that they collected from flat she has vacated into house, had meeting with supplier that lasted longer than anticipated, grabbed beans on toast for dinner, mollified husband who had been waiting for meeting to end to watch TV, switched on laptop, uploaded random image apropos of nothing, tried to write something witty and interesting on blog and failed. Sorry. Absolutely done in. Conclusion: the only thing you can do when your wheels fall off is go to bed, go to sleep and try again tomorrow. Night night. x

  1. Correction. The only thing you can do when the wheels fall off is to put it up on bricks and call for help.

    Poor old you – what a day. Give me shout if you need anything.

  2. Just reading that made me tired. I think I’ll have a glass of wine with my bride and relax until I get over it.

  3. Thanks, guys. I don’t think there’s much to be done until I finish my job. Looking forward to developing the project but will continue to muddle through until then (I hope!)

    Your bride, old fool? Are congratulations in order?

  4. Im exhausted just reading this!!!!
