If all else fails, then only hot drinking chocolate will do…..


When a ‘circles’, as in going round in, kind of day hits,
Then it may take all of your energy to hang onto your wits.

I pondered on this post and felt that an outpouring of my day,
Would in no way help anyone else deal with theirs, so what to say?

Ah I thought to myself, share your ‘back up against the wall’ plan old girl,
Who knows it may just strike a chord and someone else could give it a whirl….

So here goes and I relay the following with love and a huge dollop of fun,
Firstly, do the absolute bare essentials and leave the rest for a re-run.

Secondly, shower and get dressed again and pretend you have just got up,
Thirdly get the drinking chocolate and fill to the brim your largest cup.

Lastly, get out and take a few gulps of fresh air whilst buying yummy things to eat,
Then text friends in a similar boat and ask them around for a shared dinner treat.
