Ooh, I had a troubled mind at the weekend. You know when everything feels a bit dark and well, yes, troubling is definitely the word - because of things in your life which, at that moment, aren’t quite right. They gang up in your mind and heckle you. They don't let you rest. Some of them even slip slyly down to the pit of your stomach and bang on its walls.
The family problem, the letter from the council, the hot water playing up, the plumber not getting back to us about it, the work I couldn’t get right, then the blocked toilet, the bill for unblocking said toilet, more of the family problem (a constant backdrop to life at the moment), the worrying about someone thinking I might have done something I didn’t, the worrying about how to say something difficult to someone that makes a point I need to make (oh, the psychological knots we tie ourselves up in!), the work I still couldn’t get right, dammit – all niggling and nagging at the same time this weekend (funnily enough Monday morning wasn't so bad.)
But there was a saving grace! I was reminded of a truly excellent song….
