I'VE been sulking. I'm cranky. Foot-stomping, tanrum-dropping cranky. I can admit it. I have had squinty, glaring eyes and I've been fixing them on people. People who push and shove to get to the next train. People who whine about the food on the table. People who say "I can't". People who say "I don't like it" before they've even tried it.

People who say the beautiful Hornsea Heirloom dinner set you bought for $55 at Vinnies and proudly installed in your kitchen cupboard as your first-ever full set of crockery is ugly... in front of you... and go on and on and on about how ugly it is.

People who "forget" to pay their way. People who don't say thank you. People who announce they're bringing people over and get stroppy when you suggest these people are their guests and they should be helping cook and serve up the mountains of food being prepared for them and don't even ask what you were planning to do that day (ah, I had paid-for tickets to the Sydney Writers' Festival, thanks for not asking).

People who are anxious and cranky and tired and stressed and need you not to be. (Ah, I had some shit to deal with too, thanks for not noticing, it's all good now, sorry for the inconvenience.)

So, yes, I've been cranky. I can admit it.

How about you? You got stuff you need to get off your chest?

  3. No stuff on my chest but I've got to say I think you are totally within your rights to be cranky. Anything more to unload will be listened to equally thoroughly and then thrown away so feel free to rant whenever you like. Cherrie

  4. Did you get to the events at the festival in the end? I hope so.

    You are totally entitled to crankiness. I was cranky at people on the train this week too. And other stuff. Other stuff had me in a right and proper tizzy. Discourtesy and disrespect being at the top of the list. grr.

    BUT. Tomorrow is a new week. And it's going to be better. It is. xo

  5. I've decided to cut people like that out of my life entirely (well not the train people cause I'm stuck commuting on a train). But inconsiderate friends.

    I have an inconsiderate friend. I've cut her off and I feel so much better for it. It wasn't just a once off (that I can overlook) but it's been consistent. So it was goodbye to her.

  8. From my experience when in a room with two cranky women. It’s best to be cranky too or not even be in the room. Anything more to unload will be listened to equally thoroughly and then thrown away so feel free to rant whenever you like.

  9. Oh yes, I've had my 'crank' on recently as well ... some people just don't get little niceties or common courtesy.

    Thank goodness there are some good sorts around the place though. :)

  12. Become aware of your breathing…just noticing the air coming and going… gently in and out…in its own rhythm.
