Stomp

My hayfever kicked in around eight o'clock last night making my head feel like an over-inflated balloon. I didn't get to sleep until three am and awoke in a very dark, foul mood four hours later.

Then I got bin juice all over my hands while taking the rubbish out. After a tense and overwrought shower I went to the supermarket, stomping around the aisles and whinging like an overtired toddler. On my return The Ours, still housebound due to a metatarsal injury, immediately sent me to bed to avoid a full-blown tantrum.

So the fact that I managed 1000 words so far is not bad at all I reckon.

Good going on day where the world could have turned itself inside out!

Kudos for the output lately! (I'm lucky if I manage to find time for 2000 words in a week)

Hope you feel better now. Love that you had to be sent to bed to avoid a tantrum! That's so funny!

Lane said...

bin juice! Eurgh!!

Well done on all those words after such a day!

KAREN said...

You can turn out 1000 words even when you're in a bad mood??? I'm in awe!

Had to take a bin-bag to the dump yesterday...it leaked juice all over the seat of the car, which I then had to scrub clean as it smelt so bad. GRRRR!

JJ said...

Bin juice? Euuuughhhh. Sorry to hear about your bad mood. Hope you're feeling better soon.

David, I have no excuse as I don't work. If I were, I'd be delighted with 2000 words a week!

Helen, it was coming a mile off.

Lane, I managed to write them after my nap, I still needed a hug beforehand though.

Karen, I'd had a lie-down so my mood had improved. Yuk at the juice in the backseat, I feel your pain...

JJ, feeling much better now thanks. Even managed a turn on the Wii Fit.

It's very good. After a day like that I would probably have retired to the sofa with a glass of wine and a packet of Maltesers adn thought "Sod the novel!"

Yvonne said...

Calistro, I had absolutely no excuse as I didn't do any writing yesterday. I knew I would have been drowing in guilt tomorrow otherwise...

Holler said...

Go buy some anti-histamines girl! I know what it's like!

wordtryst said...

Bin Juice is the worstest-est! Followed by loud cursing and frenzied scouring of hands, I imagine.

Absotively, Posilutely not bad, that there thousand.

Angie said...

Ugh, what a horrible start to your day! Well done on churning out 1000 words after the (well-deserved) nap. I don't function well after naps, but when I'm in tantrum mode, Husband gently suggests a meal. ;)

Debs said...

1,000 words after all that lot, I think that's brilliant.

How lovely that he sent you to bed, bless him. That is obviously a man who knows you well.

Yvonne said...

Holler, I took some anti-histamines but they didn't work! Sorry you're under the weather too.

Wordtryst, I think I threw a little strop before I scrubbed my hands, very mature.

Angie, a meal would do it for me too actually!

Debs, he's long-suffering all right, bless him.

Oh, Lord, bin juice is the most putrid and foul of all juices.

You're an inspiration, writing while smelly ;0)

Hope Luxembourg is happy on your hayfever X

Yvonne said...

Jen, it's like pure, skin-crawling devil juice.

jen said...

Bin juice - uuuuuurgh! Some days really are just total wipeouts. The ones where you know that going to bed and back to sleep is the only sensible answer!

Yvonne said...

Jen, you're absolutely right, you just need to shake the etch-a-sketch and start all over again!

Yuck bin juice I hate when that happens. I hate when days just go wrong from start to finish but something must have gone well if you did 1000 words :)
Hope the hay fever is better tonight.

Yvonne said...

M&T, so far so good it hasn't come back, I had a lovely night's sleep and I'm raring to go!
