I'm having a not-very-good day.

So far today I've:

Stubbed my toe and broken my big toenail off;
Knocked a piece out of my knuckle without realising and bled all over the clean duvet cover I was taking out of the dryer;
Driven self and little GS to Sainsburys with a loaded, smelly nappy sack on the car roof (meant to put in bin after putting said GS in car);
Dropped an open bag of yogurt fruit flakes in front of dog, much to her delight and GS's vociferous dismay and
Opened cupboard door and unsuccessfully juggled a precariously balanced jar of manuka honey (yes, not the cheap honey, had to be the manuka), which then smashed on the floor and chipped a tile.

Oh yes, and some ruddy idiot has dented my car on Sainsburys car park.
I need a hug.

{{hugs}}. Hopefully the day has improved a bit. Why is it when one thing goes wrong it seems that everything for the day goes wrong. brew and cupcake

I hope your day improves Dragonfly, several of mine seem to be similar this week as I'm trying to organise DH's 70th birthday and prepare for 9 visitors!
I really felt for you about the duvet cover. I did the same thing with a cooked chicken that seemed to have very odd red bits until I discovered my cut finger!
It all sounds like too much to do, as usual.We women are just too talented for our own good!
Big hugs!

Did it get any better dragonfly?

Dragonfly1 Thu 13-Feb-14 21:08:03

Thanks everyone, feeling well-hugged. You're all lovely. It didn't get any worse - just one of those days! X

Mishap Thu 13-Feb-14 22:40:38

Mmmm - not a great day, but maybe you have got a year's worth of bad luck all over with in one day.

I love the nappy on the car - brilliant!

Dragonfly1 Thu 13-Feb-14 22:49:40

The wonder of it was that it stayed there Mishap! Very embarrassing. I didn't quite know what to do with it....

Flowerofthewest Thu 13-Feb-14 22:53:28

oooer! Great big hugs coming your way [hug]

Hope today's a better day for you!

It must be Digit Injury month - my daughter stubbed her toe and broke it and dislocated other foot bones, my daughter-in-law stubbed her toe and broke it and I'm sporting a very fetching black fingernail after a DIY 'incident'!! I'm definitely staying away from the tin cupboard . . . . .

More rain today, so here's a little sunshine to brighten your day sunshine wink
