Do you believe in thought bubbles?
I find they are a frequent feature of my day...and there is often a tinge of anxiety lest I actually voice what is hanging cartoon like above my head. As I often say to a friend of mine...did I say that out loud?
Today was one of those days but I was proud of my restraint...no Tourettes moments but there were a few "waste of oxygen moments" accompanying a crowd of thought bubbles hanging around my head.
Finally the tiler has finished my laundry and kitchen splashback...they look fabulous (I think anyway!)
My fun laundry...oooh orange!
And my spotty stone in the kitchen.
But, back to thought bubbles...today has been a progression of challenges which has lead to thought bubbles hanging over my head like carnival balloons! Here we go...tradesmen incorrectly connected the washing machine so the machine was filled with scalding water rather than cold ( think major colour runs...eek!), then an extremely rude and unhelpful gent at the tile shop added some more bubbles! By this stage there were some really grumpy bubbles starting to form ....and not being helped by driving into work on my day off for flu vaccination. I was in danger of a real mood developing!
Then I spoke with my far-flung supporter whose opinion I greatly value. His optimism and rationality started popping the cranky bubbles.And then I pulled out another circle game block completed on quiet evenings this week. Looking good...
only five more to frame.
Then I did that thing that is guaranteed to lighten the mood...put the lead on Molly and go for a walk! We met some new doggy friends and, before I knew it, there was not a bubble to be seen...aaah, sweet serenity in my head again! Home, and a cup of tea in my brand new cup...isn't it gorgeous?
When life gets hectic...walk the dog, a cup of tea and a stitch...simple!
