Day 53 – Grey Day

It’s one of those grey days today. You know the ones. When it’s grey outside, cold and dull inside, like the light has been sucked out of the world.

I sit outside whilst on the phone to a client during BBs nap as my phone reception is so rubbish in the house and the cold soaks into my bones.

I think my mood is grey too, I’m trying extra hard to be sunny with BB, but I know today I’m not being the best mum I can be. I think we all have days like that.

My SD comes through the door this evening and is a sparkle of light. She’s happy to be here and I get lots of hugs. I love them.

I think grey days are important to have so you can fully notice the sunny ones. I sort of like them, especially the really cold ones where you get to snuggle in blankets, watch films and drink hot chocolate.

How was your day?

  1. I completely agree – I don’t know that I’d want to live in somewhere warm and sunny all year. There is nothing like the first spring days here in MN. Hanging in here… got a lot done today and went to my class, although at the end my workout instructor started gushing about this alcoholic cherry ginger kombucha she discovered and I was like stooooppppp I’m drooling. Ugh. I need to start reading Jason Vale again….


    1. Haha that really made me smile thank you. I was dealing with a recruitment consultant today who was lovely and she was like once this vacancy is filled we both deserve a big glass of wine 😂. The temptation is everywhere.

  2. Hug. No kids expect their mom to always be cheery. It would be weird.
    Today was my son’ last first day of school. Grade 12.
    Time flies. I can’t believe he is grown up.
