Darling girl, I am sorry that Mummy hasn’t been in good form today. I am sorry that I said no to reading Little Miss Sunshine for the tenth time in a row because I felt like my brain would explode if I did. I am sorry that I just could not face singing Baa Baa Black Sheep again even though you asked me to in your own sweet way. I am sorry that I had to take you into the community office today so I could catch up with what has been happening, I know you were bored. I am sorry that I had to spend nearly an hour on the phone earlier trying to sort out an urgent problem with a piece of equipment and that I couldn’t play with you while I was doing it because there is only one room in the house I can get a clear mobile signal today. I am sorry that I was short-tempered with you when you decided to wake up just 10 minutes after snuggling down with your blankie for a nap and my much needed cuppa was less than half drunk. I am sorry that I scared you earlier when I burst into tears of pure frustration because I can’t get anyone to tell me when the missing piece of your new equipment will be here and what I am supposed to do now that the old one broke today.
Daddy will be home soon and Mummy will go out for a walk to try and get rid of her bad mood. And then tomorrow we will go into battle with the system again. Tomorrow will be a better day sweetheart, I promise xxx
