Bad Day

I knew from the moment I woke up that today just had that "bad" vibe. I was grumpy and irritable and I felt  like my mood never got out of bed when I did. At church I felt like I was an intruder, everyone was so happy and engaged and yet I wished I could just crawl into a dark hole. When my children talked to much I felt like my head was going to spin off to space. When one of the kids touched me I wanted to scream 'just leave me alone'. I yelled at my husband and made him feel like he was letting me down somehow. We went to the supermarket and I was certain that everyone was looking at me like I was crazy and what on earth was I thinking having 3 children.

I was angry at people around me for being happy, for genuinely being content with their lives. I was appalled at my behaviour towards my family. I was frustrated that this horrible PND chose me and that some days I let it have all of me instead of it just being a piece of me I am learning to manage.

It was a bad day. But tomorrow is another day.

On a better note I bake some yummy Tan Slice and added the recipe to my 'What's cooking' section.


  1. Hey Jess, you are not alone, I have had a day like that too, tomorrow will be better and you are so brave for sharing!! Thanks for your honesty.

  2. Hi, just dropped by from KMB. Sorry to hear you had a rough day and good on you for being so open and honest. 'This too shall pass' is my mantra :) It's so hard to be on top form all the time - and as mothers we sometimes feel such pressure to be just that. Hugs to you and hope you're having a better day today. Those slices look absolutely delicious! I shall have to give them a go with my daughter - who loves to bake :) x Best wishes, Sarah

  3. And how about that, for better notes!? That is some seriously textbook-awesome Tan Slice you've got posing there! ;)

  4. Sorry to hear you had such a rough day... but as you said, what better to perk you up than Tan Slice. Yum. My favourite.
