A weekend of highs and lows

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?

Busy Working Mummy XOXO

  1. Oh I really get this – i feel so frustrated when things don’t go to plan. With four children I have learnt to go with the flow a bit more as life gets more unpredictable the more children you have i guess…so many variables lol! My family live in France so when we had days of cancelling all plans it feels really frustrating as time is so limited. #twinklytuesday


  2. aww bless you. Illness really wrecks stuff. I was meant to see Helen (cohost) this weekend and both our kids were ill so we cancelled. Just made other plans and went with the flow. Disappointing though. Hope everyone is getting better!! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst and see you soon x

  3. I’m exactly the same and feel so disappointed when nothing goes to plan – especially when it involves seeing friends/family. I hope little man is better now and wish your mum the best of luck with the rest of her treatment. #bestandworst xx

  4. That does sound frustrating, it sounds like you were the only one feeling 100% and keen to get out and about which is a shame. Sick babies sure can throw a spanner in the works , my baby got his first cold on his first birthday but luckily his nana was here too, to carry him around and give him cuddles while I did the organising. Thank goodness for Nanas! I hope everyone in your family is feeling better soon #bestandworst

  5. I hate it when things don’t go to plan. I too am a little OCD with this sort of thing, nothing diagnosed but I like to be organised and if it doesn’t happen then it puts me in a real foul mood too. Like you say though at least you still got to spend some time with your family even if it wasn’t quite how you planned
