Have you ever had one of those days where everything seems to go wrong? It goes wrong so much that all you want to do is go back to bed and wait until tomorrow comes. I had one of those days around lunchtime today.
I was only trying to make lunch
It was exactly that where my downfall happened. I have been trying hard to make sure I am eating healthy foods to co-inside with the exercise and weight loss journey I am on. This means that I can spend some extra time making sure I get good foods in at lunchtime. On the menu today was some rye bread I had made yesterday, poached egg, salad with a little salad cream. I was hungry which I always am after a work morning so I tend to eat as soon as I get in. After I had set everything up I started preparing. At this point everything was fine.
Then came the eggs and oh boy were they troublesome today. I had cracked one into a mug as that is what I have been taught to do by Rosie and saw it safely into the pan. Then came eggs two and three. Egg two ended up in the mug and just as I was ploughing in to rescue some shell, I knocked the mug off of the work service which took with it egg three. Two eggs on the floor and none in the pan. It was quite a conundrum. One egg landed on the newly laundered rug and even worse news was one of the two troublesome eggs ended up between the surface and the cooker. The next question was how was I going to get that out of there?
The next stage with the troublesome eggs
So, you would have thought that it may have been plan sailing from there on in but no. Once the eggs were cooked, I attempted to put them on to the plate. But those slippery little things slipped right off the plate and now I have three eggs on the floor. I mean seriously three eggs on the floor!! Three! Would I end up getting any lunch today?
Lunch came, eventually!
I was about to throw the whole egg pan along with the eggs into the bin. Then I was going to jump in the car and head out to buy lunch. I didn’t. Several minutes later I was eating my healthy lunch. I mean I was starting to think all this hassle just to be eating healthy, but I got there.
The rest of the afternoon
Firstly, I had to clean up the mess which meant laundering the rug again and pulling out the oven to get that silly egg back. I was also due to go and do chores this afternoon. However, upon reflection I thought it would be wiser to sit on the couch and watch comedy on tv. This way I was out of harm’s way. I am also considering letting Rosie cook tea again to limit my miss-adventures in the kitchen.
And here is my point. Life is hard sometimes and just when you try to do an easy task in comes the curved balls. You just need to pause, take a deep breath and try to get back on track. My miss-adventure today was small in the grand scheme of things but still an important one in my book.
