Ever have one of those days where everything feels like it’s going wrong?
I had one last week.
Baby Teddy and I were in London last week, where we spend about one week in six. We do this because Will, my husband, and I both love our jobs in London and Beirut respectively and neither of us can bear to move permanently.
In London without my Jaleesa nanny I feel lost and disorganised. I’m not just saying that. I really honestly do.
My mum made the 2.5 hour journey to come babysit so I could focus on work. I was planning a big sprint to prepare for a board meeting yesterday.**
But Teddy had a fever so he was either on my boob all day, or crying. I could barely snatch half an hour to focus – and then I felt guilty and started making mum cups of tea in exchange for suffering a sick baby. I got very little work done, and felt guilty about that too.
Will tells me I’m the biggest “glass half full” person he knows. BUT… let’s be honest. It was a crap day.
**The board meeting went well though 🙂
