Mostly a quiet day

Not much achieved at the start of the week.  Some more old scraps pieced and starched, ironing tomorrow.



Someone did something weird today.  I know this lady has many troubles, frankly she is broken and might be past fixing.  Her husband gave me a hug and whispered "don't worry lass".   I have to hold onto the knowledge that 99% of the time when people do odd things it is because they have a problem, it is nothing to do with you.  Doesn't mean it didn't screw up my day though . . . humans are really strange creatures at times.

    Yes, something like that, could screw up your day.

    Poor man, he may have been saying (to you), what he wished someone would say, to him. Since he has to deal with his wife, all the time. -sigh-

    Well, I had "one of those days," without anyone saying anything weird to me! Dropped the eggs and toast on the floor, this morning. Yish!!!! And then, a couple of other things. I was feeling quite sorry for myself, I'll tell you. -grin-

    Humans! Did I do Thing # 2 and 3, because I did Thing #1??? ,-)

    Better luck tomorrow to both of us.

    ✨✨✨✨

    1. Thanks Wisp, when I got home one of my first thoughts was for the husband, poor chap.

      Sorry about your eggs, at least the kitchen floor has had a clean. Reminds me I really ought to do mine :-)

  2. It's surprising how an unexpected word or gesture can leave you feeling unsettled, especially if the circumstances behind it aren't good ones - it's happened to me, though fortunately not often. I hope tomorrow is a bit less screwed up for you :)

    1. So right Eunice, it was the unexpected nature of this event which I think has shocked me so much. This too shall pass . . .

    1. Thanks Susan, this was definitely 'beyond weird' and at one level, it is my own stupid fault: I had been told years ago that this lady was unpredictable {{sigh}}

  4. Even normal folk have moments when they ruffle feathers unknowingly - I feel for the husband, he is there for her and has to pour oil on troubled waters. Sending [[hugs]]

    1. Thanks Kate, yes, it is the husband who has to bear this. I was able to walk away and come home.
      Hope your cold is going and you are feeling better. xx

  5. Look after yourself Jayne and be there for this lady and her dear husband if needed and yes, don't worry.

    1. Thanks Eileen. To be honest, I don't know if I want to be there for her - being brutally frank I cannot help her resolve 'issues' and it's just too hard on me. I know she has been with her husband over 30 years - if he's not worked out how to cope by now there is probably nothing I could do or say.
