Little Things That Cause Snarl Face To Appear!

with 3 comments

I like to try and keep a relaxed happy expression on my face but some things provoke the snarl face! I thought it would be fun to write some of them down and share my own pet dislikes and foibles.

Some of them are:

Things that are actually designed to brake after you have them a while, so you probably will buy a replacement, stupidly I usually do!

When you transfer money from one account to another in the same bank it actually vanishes for a couple of days, while the bank charges you a fee because the money did not reach the other account on time!

The time trick of there being actually no hours between midnight and 7am, or is that just a Doolin phenomenon?

Mud, I try to appreciate the earth but not fully there yet!

Wind, especially when it blows the car door open with such a force that it nearly knocks us all over, naughty Husband says that it is the only time the car gets cleaned out! Hair over eyes and in mouth so snarl face is hidden.

Rain, this I really need to work on over coming as there is just so much of it living in a cloud most of the time!

Spell check and its lack of understanding me!

Cables, hundreds of cables every where!

Last but certainly not less “stuff” everywhere, growing by the day, toys and loads of stuff I just cant throw away!

Once while I was having a snarl face episode I stopped and realized how lucky I am and suddenly became really grateful instead and I was no longer irritated just very happy! I must remember that the next time!

Tomorrow I will write about little things that make me feel very happy just to keep a balance!

  1. I can’t wait to get back tomorrow! I picture you and the children sitting by the fire telling stories and hugging each other in laughter. An image of your beautiful faces, orange light warming them from the turf that warms our kitchen, fills my heart with happiness. The peace of our home compared to the chaos of where I am pulls me back to you all with a force that can only come from love.
    I do not live in a delusion of home life, well perhaps, perhaps just a little.
    See you tonight my happy, smiling and beautiful wife. Love J
