What a crock! Of course it is not all about me, me, me. We all have equal share of this world, and if one of us doesn't feel up to par and wants to stop playing for a day (or two) then this world will not stop. It will keep on turning and everyone will keep on getting on with their lives. Which is a good thing. And it keeps things in prospective.
So, I have decided to take your kindly given advice and step off the merry-go-round today. Enough of pushing myself and feeling grumpy because of it. In the scheme of things one day is not so important. And if a Christmas present is late, it is still sent with love and - hopefully - received with love as well. Again, the world will not stop. If I feel grotty and go back to bed and stay there most of the day I will benefit from the rest. Everyone else will benefit from the silence!
Thank you for all the kind comments. I am not ill. Really, I don't think so. And I apologise for bringing my grump into this space. Right, that's it for today then, I'm off to bed. I leave you with this sage piece of advice - Do not baste a quilt when you are in a mood like this. You will only have to redo it. I am living proof because the backing of said basted quilt has more wrinkles than I do! Not the look I wanted for the quilt or me.
