Sometimes one gets extraordinarily bad days. No warnings or premonitions, they descend the minute you open your eyes.
Take the first October, last Sunday week, really nasty from start to finish. Everything turned round and bit me. By the time Monday morning came, I was reeling!
I've got a feeling today's going to be the same. What causes these turns in fortunes?
Mostly I'm very upset because it's my Son's birthday today (19), and he's hardly got any birthday cards. Not from relatives, friends, nothing. He says he doesn't care, but I know he does. So do I - deeply. I know once you're 18, you don't get sent money anymore, but a simple card would do. Especially as I've bombarded all their kids with cards - and they're looking at 30 now. Bastards.
Lunchtime already - I'd better do something to salvage this day.
Heatwave at the weekend, I believe.
