Have you ever woken up and the minute you open your eyes you are cranky ?? Well that was me this morning.
One of the first things that greeted me on the stairs was freshly washed clothes belonging to R and L and The Farmer now these are waiting to be brought up the stairs for nearly a week why can’t they bring them up the stairs ?? Does anyone else have a stairs like this that becomes home to things that should be in bedrooms ???.
I think maybe the longer hours for the last few weeks are just starting to hit now , I miss my evenings when the littlest farmer is gone to bed to do a little reading .
We have also had broken nights sleep because The Farmer gets up about three in the morning to go check the girls and he tries his best not to wake me but I hear him getting up . So as you can guess if anyone even looks at us we are ready to bite each others heads off :).
So I went up to muck out and growl and grumble away to my horses because I know they understand and they don’t answer back and mucking out is a great stress reliever I find . While I was growling away the littlest farmer and The Farmer went off on the quad to empty the dung trailer, when he came back he was minus the littlest farmer , I was just about to ask had he forgotten him when I was told to look in the trailer and this is what greeted me
All I could do was laugh , sure what else could I do :). When all our yard work was done I decided the only way to feel better is to bake something nice so I am as we speak trying my hand at millionaires shortbread the base is just out of the oven and caramel is next.
I know once spring lambing is over and lessons go back to normal the pressure will ease a little but the best way to cope is to try and find something to laugh at in your day :).
Tell me how you cope with your under pressure days ?
