Some days are just not meant to go the way you want I’ve decided and today was one of them. But it all started with a poor decision on my part yesterday.
I went to brunch with two friends in a lovely local cafe and decided I would have a nice coffee, a weak one, to go with my all day breakfast. The problem was, it seems, not everyone understands my meaning of weak, this one was anything but. Of course I drank it anyway, and enjoyed it. I should now mention that while I love coffee, it really, really doesn’t love me! Think shaking hands, sweating, racing heart and of course sleeplessness. You’d think with all that I’d steer clear and I do most of the time, but every now and again the thought of it seduces me again. It doesn’t always end in disaster, sometime if it really is weak (or decaf which is very much hit and miss) or if I’m just lucky I have no side effects and I thoroughly enjoy the whole experience. But most of the time it’s not like that unfortunately.
On top of this Miss Two had a shocker of a night. I don’t know what was disturbing her – nightmares I suspect at least a couple of times – but she had me up and down five times. And then decided to start the day at 6am. Giving me a total of two hours sleep. Did I mention that she had also recently dropped her day sleeps and despite all my attempts and me being desperately keen for one myself even today she would not succumb.
So instead of sleeping, we decided to bake something…
Yeah, did exactly go well. For the record these are supposed to be ANZAC biscuits. We were half way through making them when I realised I was short on butter, so added a bit more golden syrup. Add to that the fact that I really haven’t worked out my oven yet and you have this result. Not good!
But in better news, the girls were out like a light by 7.30pm and my very first copy of Organic Gardener (thanks Playgroup mums) arrived in the post today. I’m going to flick through that then will more than likely be out like a light myself.
And tomorrow will be better – we’re planning on baking a chocolate cake so I sure hope it’s better!
