Do you ever have one of those days that don’t go the way you expect? I was hoping for a long lie in bed today but instead the three dogs I have in my house this weekend woke me up at 6am. One of them belongs to a friend. After letting them out in the garden I did manage to go back to bed till 8am so all was not lost.
The day started to go downhill when I went to make breakfast. I put some Hash Browns in the oven and cooked some eggs to go with them. When they were ready I took them out of the oven with a towel and then without thinking went to grab the tray with my bare hand. As you can guess I burned myself as the tray and Hash Browns went all over the floor. Don’t worry, Calendula cream and running my hand under cold water very quickly did the trick. I sat down and ate my lonesome eggs after cleaning the floor. I then realised I had left my coffee in the kitchen so went to collect it. After taking a mouthful I realised it was cold. I had forgotten to switch on the kettle. Duh!
I then decided it was time to take all the dogs out for a walk and play but before that the bath needed rinsed after my shower. I’m sure you can guess what I did next. I turned the shower on me instead of the bath. After going and getting dry clothes to replace my soaking wet ones all I could do was laugh at myself. I promise you I’m not going senile, even if it sounds like it. I obviously had not wakened up properly. At least that’s my reasoning. I thought I would give you all a laugh as it does us all good to laugh at ourselves sometimes.
My day has got back on target after walking the dogs and letting them play. I even managed to get my friends dog to come back to me eventually. Mind you it may go downhill again when I try to wash her if I can pluck up the courage. My 2 are happy getting washed and brushed but this little beauty hates both so I may end up getting scratched. Of course I could just give her back to my friend tonight as she is as I know she will get just as mucky tomorrow too.
I hope you are all having a better start to the day than I did. Out of it though I have given myself such a laugh so I must have produced loads of feel good Endorphins. Just a thought – maybe I should star in a remake of Fawlty Towers!
Feel free to give me company and tell me what funny things you have done and if you managed to laugh at yourself.
