This morning I changed the sheets, put the washing machine on and cleaned the kitchen.

Decided to make a cup of coffee, sit down and read my book, made the coffee, instead of picking up the mug I managed to knock it over - coffee all over the worktop, down the front of the cupboards and all over the floor (who knew there was that much liquid in a cup of coffee!). Cleaned it all up, picked up the mug to put in the dish washer, dropped mug on the floor shattering into what seemed like hundreds of pieces. Arghhh!!!!!!

Oh, Lord!
Still, your day can only get better - can’t it? I hope so!

Oh my. What a start to the day. I'd go back to bed too.

Hmm, an unlucky sequence of events.
Never mind, things can only get better...more coffee anyone? 🌷😁

At least it wasn't a bottle of milk!

The important thing is - did you finally get to have your coffee?

I have come back to bed with a huge latte........Mr.GG and I have had words . I am sure after a period of wife - husband distancing all will be fine.

Things come in threes sunseeker; you've only had 2 so far! Back to bed quick! grin

Oldwoman70 - yes I did get my coffee! brew

Thanks Chewbacca - perhaps the clothes line will collapse when I put the washing out (if it does I will blame you!)

That is one of life's mysteries Sunseeker how does a cup of coffee or a glass of wine manage to spread over such a large distance once spilled.
Hope the rest of your day is better

On Tuesday (I think it was Tuesday 🤔) I took my "wake up" coffee back to bed with me and put it on the bedside cabinet. Next thing I knew, it and the contents had thrown itself on to the bedroom carpet, splashing all over the cabinet on it's merry way. Not unheard of in my case, goes with the territory of having epilepsy. Don't go back to bed Sunseeker, yes the clean up is aggravating when you've only just cleaned once but at the end of the day it was only a mug you lost. As long as you have more mugs you can start afresh.

My next door neighbour, after feeding her dog, decided to make a cup of tea. On reaching in the cupboard for the sugar she accidentally knocked down a bag of flour which in turn knocked the milk jug over. The kitchen floor is now covered in flour and milk she stepped back to start cleaning up and stepped into the dogs dish and skidded along the floor and ended up sitting in the milk, flour and the dog food. The dog hearing his dish moved rushed in from the garden and started licking the dog food off her.
