I have two methods of coping with stressful situations - First of all I feel the need to hide away from it all, stay holed up in my bed under the duvet, sleeping lots and avoiding everything and everyone. Denial I guess. My other coping strategy is to cook. Somehow I feel that if the freezer is well stocked with wholesome, homemade meals, all will be well.
I am currently planning on stocking up the freezer....
Today has been our worst day for a very long time, possibly ever.
My husband's car had to be towed to the garage by the RAC before 9.30am, my car was in the garage already having an extensive (read 'expensive') service, our computer/entertainment system had stopped working and may never recover. Not a great morning, but what can you do?
My husband gets the news from the garage that his car is dead. This is stressful and my husband is now desperate for a new car. His job requires a car, it is impossible without, and anyone who has had their car go wrong unexpectedly understands that awful feeling.
We decide we will have a good chat about it all once the children are in bed, and head up to the yard to put the horses to bed. When we get there we find my mare is colicky - just what we need.
It has been one of those days where you are just waiting for the next thing to go wrong. Last week was pretty shite, but this week had been a good one so far. Bollocks.
I am going to finish my giant bar of Dairy Milk and then start a shopping list (a frugal one)
