Plans go wrong again

It seems impossible to plan anything with any conviction these days. Take today for instance... last day of term... almost there with the Christmas shopping and card giving.

Today was the day when my 6 year old would take his presents in for his best friend and teacher... and I would get my hair cut ready for Christmas. But yesterday the teacher came out onto the playground to meet me with the dreaded words... "I'm afraid he's not been very well all day..." So we went home, kept warm, dosed up with Calpol and hoped for the best. But in the middle of the night a temperature raged and this morning he woke up with a headache and sore throat.

Ah well...for a moment there I was almost organised. Luckily a friend came to the rescue and took the teacher's present and card in for me. Unfortunately the hairdresser had to be cancelled. I'll give me fringe a quick trim myself and that'll have to do! But see what I mean - I just can't plan anything with any certainty anymore!


  1. nope, the time for definite plans had definitely been and gone. I know the feeling well. I'm just impressed you weren't running round at the last minute trying to find a card and wrapping up that 'in case of forgotten birthdays' box of chocolates.

  2. Hi Happy New Year! - I have tagged you over at skybluesea (I have never been tagged before), just list your top 5 highlights for 2009 if you fancy doing it.
