Do you use whatsapp?  If so, you're probably familiar with that emoticon.  I'm not even sure what it's meant to represent, I just know I very often feel it represents exactly what I feel.  It's been a difficult day.  Why did I ever think I'd make a good mother?  Gnnnaaarrr!


  1. Count me in!
    Today the collection of offspring from kindergarten went inexplicably and totally pear-shaped, as in 2-year-old in the throes of a prize tantrum in the parking lot, older siblings running wild inside the car, passing parents rolling their eyes at the rubbish mother...

    1. Glad it's not just me. Dulcie said today, "I don't love you when you're angry." LOW POINT. And yet it still probably got to me less than all her screaming and moaning, which is pretty much constant at the moment, along with the phrases "I need...", "I want..." and "I didn't want...", all delivered with optimum whining. I was in tears by the time Graham came home. I keep wanting to tell complete strangers she's not as awful as she probably seems to them, she is truly lovely much of the time, but her terrible times are really terrible. Don't make me tell you about the foodbank fight... Gah! Hope your lot behave themselves over the weekend x
