I had a difficult start today
as I do most days that I have to get Bradley to school. He hasn't caught up on a lot of his work from when he was off sick and marks are due. I ended up shouting and he did a lot of banging around. I dropped him at school and we went our separate ways, not looking back at each other. A negative start to my day usually means things go wrong the whole day but a new friend restored my good humour by going out of her way to help me even though she hardly knows me. A bad start turned out really good and I got to know my new friend a bit better.
Later Brad was on mxit and told me that it was sports day today and not marks hand in day and he managed to get quite a bit finished while the teachers were busy with the sports day. I hate being the bad guy with my kids but sometimes its the only thing that gets them moving! Now we can enjoy our weekend a bit knowing that some positive things are happening.
Always look for the silver lining on the grey cloud and keep your sense of humour!
