Moody Monday

We hardly see the sun these days. It has been raining every single day and today is no different. Until yesterday, it was all foggy and the rain started again first thing this morning.

I must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning as things have not been going terribly well for me today!

The door bell rang even before we got out of bed. That is never a good sign. Officially the Mhinisteir is on holiday. Unofficially, he has been catching up on his work. This is one of the disadvantages of a multi parish benefice. The Vicar has so many churches, church wardens and parishioners to care for. Recently, a numpty commented that with the lockdown, the Mhinisteir will get a whole month off!!! Dream on pal!!!!

We have to get out of the Vicarage for a proper break. With the lockdown, we have had to cancel our self-catering cottage and holiday at home! Before lunch time, the door bell rang again and it was the same person. A Church warden. I later learned from the Mhinisteir that it was nothing important at all!

Also this morning, I had a serious disagreement with a family member over Maradona! Honestly, who gets into a disagreement over Maradona???

On the plus side, I have managed to finish all the ironing. With the absence of our cleaner, I have also successfully changed the sheets. Thankfully she is resuming her duties next week!

Off to rest!

Happy St Andrew’s Day!

Blue Monday

I heard in the news this morning that today is BLUE MONDAY. I have never heard of a blue Monday but can make an intelligent guess that it probably refers to feeling a little down on this particular Monday ??! I don’t know why it makes people a little down on this particular Monday but thankfully I have no such ill effect. In fact, it has been quite a lovely day so far and I am just going to go and do some reading.
