One of those days

I've not had a great day today.  The highlight was probably heading outside to get these pictures.

It was a combination really of trying to look after the kids (schools closed due to snow), and work from home.  There was lots of me asking the kids to calm down, and lots of the kids asking me to help colour in/build a lego house/pour apple juice (no not in that cup, in this cup).

It came to a head when I snapped at Yoyo for helping herself to a gherkin out of the fridge.  Of all the things to get uptight about, a gherkin.

And as I type this I am almost reluctant to publish it.  To admit that I have those days where things go wrong and I snap at my offspring over gherkins.  But I am sure I am not alone.  So for that reason I will post this, and fingers crossed we will all have a better day tomorrow!


  1. You are not alone, in fact I'd say you are refreshingly normal and perfectly made :)

    Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing the story on thankful tuesday, it brought a tear to my eye.

  2. It will pass I'm sure. I know loads of people with stir-crazy kids off school at the moment so I doubt you're the only one!

  3. Thank you both - a much better day today!

  4. You are going to be glad you did post this after all and are going to have a good laugh with the children, many new years down :-)

  5. Thanks Madhu - frustration has been released with a family snowball fight in the garden yesterday!
