When you are over tired, anything that goes pear shaped can drag you down into a toddler-ish type tantrum worthy of any spoilt fat 18 month old brat who has just had his choccy biccy swiped from him.
We had a bloody awful shift last night. I was over tired when I got home so I just didn't need a rather unpleasant job of trying to push back a prolapse on the back end of my female magpie duck....but I did it before walking into the kitchen to discover a wonderfully complicated pattern of shitty dog paw prints all over the carpet
I could have wept.........
I didn't though
I just had a swearing fit worthy of any Liverpudlian docker
Minutes later, as I was disinfecting the floor, with bleach there was a gentle knock on the cottage window.
I sighed and answered the door.
It was animal helper Pat.
She handed me a wrapped up green parcel , which turned out to be a quality waterproofed jacket
And said in passing
" I have been sorting things out at home and found this... I thought it would be ideal for you on the field"
It was as simple as that.
Do you know .....when you are feeling pissed off and tired
And when life throws you one of those shitty paw kind of moments that almost heaves you over the edge
All it takes is a little act of kindness, for you to regain your perspective , your wits........
And your sense of humour.
I was and am very grateful..........
Off to bed for an hour
