Adjusting. Not [Jul. 11th, 2013|09:47 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz was complimenting me on how well I was adjusting to life in Kent and then- yesterday-  the existential angst came sweeping back in. I'm not sure why. I think it had something to do with the broadband connection being so slow I couldn't access LJ. On such small things do our moods depend.

Also Ailz and I had to go and do the week's shopping. In the past my mother has made tut-tutting noises about how much we've spent- and I was dreading her doing it again. In the event she was sweetly complimentary about our efforts- but the damage has already been done.

Then there were some plants to be watered. I'd have happily gone and done it myself- but my mother wanted to be part of the action- and so I wheeled her down the drive and she was bossing me about. She has a way of saying, "What are you doing?" that Dame Edith Evans would have envied.

By evening I was ready to snap at the least little thing.

I'm sorry to hear that...I know exactly what you mean about the watering episode. Hope you are enjoying the sun now.

Yes, it's been a pleasant enough day.

When everything is so stressed and stamina-consuming, absolutely: it feels like the last thing you can deal with going wrong.

That's right. I tell myself I shouldn't care, but I do.

The proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back doesn't weigh much but there you have it. Lots of small irritations build up.
