My Not So Secret Diary

Tuesday Trainer Pic (Again)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Tuesday trainer pic, but today was one of those days. Swimming was louder than it’s been in a while, apparently the quiet weeks where children have been on holiday were just lulling me into a false sense of security. Today there was much noise, and kids having a bottle flipping fight over our heads because apparently that’s a good idea. I put my airpods in and wound the music up, but I could still hear the chaos over the top. Later, a parcel I’d redirected was sent somewhere else, which was just brilliant and took me far too much effort to retrieve. Then to top off my afternoon my daughter struggled to be allowed onto the ward to see my mum today when she went to the hospital drop some things off, which was unbelievably frustrating. I know we need rules, and people need to follow them, but it seems sometimes that they’re only followed by others when it can make life more difficult for me
I was feeling properly frustrated on the way home, and with my five year old jabbering on next to me in the car, I decided to tell him before I exploded that it wasn’t him I was irritated with, just lots of things that were making me feel grumpy. I’m not sure whose idea it was, but the next thing I knew we were counting to three and shouting our frustrations out. Not once, but three times. I think he’d still be doing it, but he made my ears hurt! Whatever fools we looked, it made us both crack up which was great and I felt so much better
If you need to let some frustration out, then I really suggest it, only make sure you’re not somewhere people can hear you!
