You Can Have My Crazy. I Don't Want It.
Sometimes, you just know a day isn't going to go well.
I woke up at 5.30am as usual, then decided that I would stay in bed a bit longer after Mr C left for work. My hours are not as set as his, so I get to work the hours I want when I need to. When I finally lined my work ducks up and told them to behave, it was 7.30am. By 8.20am I was up the road (in the tipping rain) and waiting for the 8.36am bus. That didn't arrive until 8.55am. In the meantime I had seen a lone magpie and wondered what ills would befall me this day.
Then the bus connection to work was playing silly games when I was in town. First the board showed 8 minutes (and they're every 10.) Then something in the order of 17 minutes. At which point I rapidly began to lose interest in the day. It was cold. I was wet. I was hungry. I was thirsty.
I eventually shivered and dribbled my way into work at around 10am.
To a positive avalanche of emails from my boss, who required a laundry list of documents to be sent over as soon as possible. She rang me to request another few documents and I could tell she was spitting teeth, fur, feathers and various other metaphors all over the office. I emailed her the documents as soon as I could. My departmental head came in with another list of requests. Those too were emailed as soon as possible .
The usual weekly meeting for the scheduled annual audit submission took place this afternoon as normal. Bossgal tottered in looking shattered at the end of the 2 hour meeting and proceeded to update us on the circumstances behind her requests.
I thus found myself with a few more items to locate and send over as soon as I could. So I did. She was in no mood to suffer fools and I was disinclined to put myself there. At least the weather had moderated slightly when I emerged. It was cold and dry, which made the journey home a little easier. It's still cold, and I would like to be warm again soon, please.
I tried searching for 'crazy' on the Pixabay images but I liked this one from the 'random' results better.
