    A very tough day today. Kids are tired, staff are tired. On the way home two drivers almost went into me-they were on the wrong side of the road and just drove towards me while looking for a parking space outside a shop. I had to stop and double check that we do drive on the left-seriously-I wasn't sure for a moment. Just been to the vet, bad news about my dog's arthritis and even worse news for my bank balance. My card was rejected twice! I thought I was going to have a panic attack. Anxiety is back. It eventually worked when I put it in the machine.

    Without sounding too delicate, a c****y day and my nerves are in threads.
    There is no point to this thread other than to vent to the air and hope others are having a better time today.

    It's almost Friday, isn't it?

    Sounds like a very tough day.

    Do something nice for yourself this evening. Have a bath. Watch something you like. Read. Get the family to help you in the kitchen and clear away.

    Four more sleeps. Breathe.

    Maybe you have just been unwittingly efficient and packed a whole fortnight of crud into Monday! All downhill now till Friday and then half term.

    Reward yourself with a drink and a feet-up evening.

    Sorry to hear about your bad day. Can you manage to relax and destress a bit this evening? I ring a lovely bubble bath helps me relax. Take care.

    Sorry to hear that you're having a bad day. I'm not surprised you are feeling tired and stressed. It's been a long, hard half term for schools.
    Relax tonight with a wine, hot chocolate or anything else that helps and go to sleep with the thought that tomorrow is a new day and life is full of peaks and troughs. So tomorrow may well feel a lot better than today.

    Horrible day. And we all hit that wall from time to time. Just hold on until Friday for school. Very sorry about the dog. Diffident virtual pat for you.

    My God, you're bloody lovely. Thank you.

    Self-pitying is horrible. Sorry.

    Wine is in a glass. Chocolate is still in the shop, sadly.

    Onwards, and if not upwards then definitely horizontally-wards!

    Its been a really long hard grind to get to the last week. Tough on everyone. Probably the worst year ever, school wise.

    And then a load of horrible extra stuff on top.:(

    Sending you lots of love, and I hope it ok with you, I just said a little prayer for you

    This has been the worst year of my life. However, I have to believe that, no matter how bad it gets, the sun will shine again. A few weeks ago, I bought a top with ‘Be kind’ emblazoned across the front. I wear this into school twice a week in order to subliminally transmit the message to everyone. No matter how dark life can seem, being good to others - and having them reciprocate - is the best way of coping.
