In which I am grumpy

Picture from amazon.co.uk
I was just flexing my fingers to write about how much of a grump I am today, how I nearly threw a full on temper tantrum this morning before setting off for the station this morning (sample dialogue: “Don’t wanna go to work. Don’t wanna.”) and how all I want to do is sit in bed and swig red wine and read trashy novels when something compelled me to check the archives and look! It appears I was feeling almost exactly the same at this time last year!

It’s official my friends – I’m allergic to November and should therefore definitely be allowed to pass all thirty days of it in a state of hibernation. But since the Department has cracked down on sick leave I’m going have to come up with an alternate plan.

Incidentally, I note that last year I self prescribed risotto, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and chicken soup. So that’s half of next week’s menu plan sorted then.


  1. Awww I'm sorry to hear you are grumpy. February has the same effect on me. In fact if I can survive from Christmas to April without a meltdown I deem it a success....!

    Hope you feel better soon xxx

  2. January is the month of grumps for me. I may squeeze in February too. (Perhaps Lauren and I should form a stroppy support group?!)


  3. I know how you feel althouhg I'm miserable from the moment I see something Christmassy, bah humbug!
    Good menu to sort the blues out though, mmmmm risotto!

  4. Tee hee - is it mean that saying you're grumpy makes me giggle! Cheer up chuck!
