Calamity


Calamity
My day started at 2.30 am when baby beautiful was having a restless night, with her every appearing gnashes! Between bouts of screaming I managed to grab a few winks on the floor before my alarm went off at 5.30 to officially kick start my day.
I managed to shower and dress pretty efficiently, although patching up the face took some serious creativity. Industrial strength polyfilla was on order to fill in the nooks and crannies!
I crept out of the house stumbled to the truck in the dark and was greeted by the no fuel warning sign. Awesome! I decided to risk it and drive the few minutes round to the local train station. A first for me in Canada. When I got there, I asked a guy where the ticket booth was and of course it was a footie pitch away! I could hear the train toot tooting and hauled my backside in heels across the car park! Suddenly feeling a little strange I glanced down to see my stockings had dropped off and were round my knees! What to do? Miss the train. Waddle with said fabric hindering mobility. I ducked behind a massive garbage thing and hiked them up, only to notice the waiting bus, full of passengers looking on in amazement! I launched myself into the booth and with some negotiation retrieved a ticket for the train which was now departing the station!
I finally made it to train two, which luckily got me in to the station on time and set off in a mad dash to my final destination, only to be once again hampered by the nylons that refused to stay put!
Finally at the conference I tried to grab a quick juice and breakfast when some colleagues started to network and just as it came to my turn to be introduced I was desperately trying to finish my last bite when someone spotted me and found it hysterical that I was chewing away and to add to the hysteria started to call me Muffin lady! Muffin lady.. I jest you not!
How was your day?
