Some years ago someone asked me what was the hardest thing about being self-employed, to which I replied – the buck stops with you.
It’s a glib little phrase, but on days like today it comes back to bite me. You see, I have decided that due to unforeseen circumstances today has been cancelled. Today, I have a stonking migraine, and the grey patina has flavoured the sky once more after the brief respite of glorious sunshine yesterday. Yesterday, I felt drunk on sunshine. Today, I have a sunshine hangover.
Unfortunately that means that there will be no meaningful blog posts written today. There will be no housework done, no cooking, no cleaning (let’s face it not much of that happens on a typical day!). It also means that I will not be available to nod sympathetically and smile understandingly to those who need to vent their problems. I’m sorry about that. Sorry to disapppoint.
Today has been cancelled. If you could leave your name and number at the tone I will come back to you when I can string a lucid sentence together, and when I can open my eyes without searing my brain. Today I will be burying my head in my pillow and trying to not think about the nightmare I had last night that featured snakes (my absolute terror symbol), concerns about my family and health worries. Some days I just have to sleep, and when I do I hope that someone up there, will keep my business and family safe, while I’m off duty.
Today has been cancelled. See you tomorrow?
