My phone kept buzzing with angst-ridden messages from the Offspring who were having Difficult Days and The World Was Ending and What Was I Going To Do About It (since it was likely to have been my fault anyway) and I had forgotten to email important Stuff to Darling Dublin Friend, who did not know I was experiencing Meltdown in my kitchen. "That Antonia!" she may have thought, "Too many light, airy and frolicksome things have once again skewed her sense of duty," Here she sighs with a patient yet sympathetic expression, "She means well", she would say as she switched off her computer, folded her notebook away and tucked her pencil behind her ear.
That was two days ago. I am not like that now. Two days ago I solved the crisis by going to bed. I had an early night. I took tea up to bed with me. I turned off my phone, and I lay in my bed with my arms folded, pouting and frowning till sleep overtook me, and in the morning, the rain cloud had evaporated. Now I am happy again, back to normal with a Sun Beam over my head. And sitting once more in my kitchen which I will describe. Hem hem. Here we go.
