So I just experienced a weekend where nothing went to plan.
As I am a complete OCD control freak, it is sometimes difficult for me to deal with things in an appropriate way. If something unexpected happens, I have a habit of going slightly nuts and getting incredibly pi**ed off.
So my family were up this weekend. My mum had just had her last session of chemotherapy, and my brother had a sore throat. We were all still keen to enjoy the weekend and celebrate.
Little man woke up on Saturday and was poorly with a temperature. We took him to his swimming lesson and he was just a little limpet the whole time, not wanting to leave my side. Then we were going to go out for tea, which we attempted, but they had a 30 minute wait for a table.
I didn’t want to keep little man out any later than necessary so we had to go on home again…..needless to say, I was incredibly pi**ed off at this point. I wanted steak and chips and a white wine spritzer, but obviously little man had to come first. Off we trotted home, no food and no wine.
We ended up having a chippy tea and a glass of fizz instead after little man went to bed, so wasn’t all bad.
Mum unfortunately woke up on Sunday feeling really poorly and my brother also woke up feeling sick. Little man again woke up poorly so all we managed to do was go food shopping. We had planned to go for a nice walk and coffee in one of the country estates near where we live.
My family trekked home at midday and hubby and I were left with an afternoon and a poorly little man.
So it was a weekend of highs and lows. Nice to see my family, but none of the nice plans we had in our head actually ended up happening.
I also spent the day with a tiny hangover from 2 glasses of prosecco….yes I am a lightweight. I don’t drink very often.
How do you deal with situations where nothing goes right?
