didn't someone write a book titled something like 'Don't Sweat the Small Stuff'? yeah, I know...if I was truly interested I would google it. alas I am not. this is because I am LOATHING the small stuff at present.
all the washing to be done in a day! and good golly i am sick of socks & smalls. when there are five people in a house there are LOADS of socks and smalls. to add to my woes, 3 of those 5 are little ones making their smalls and socks even smaller & even fiddlier & very, very constant! this is not to mention all the little strays we seem to have at present- so many sad, lonely little socks widowed of their life partners.
then... there is cutlery. i am utterly tired of cutlery: teaspoons, dessert spoons, soup spoons, serving spoons, big forks, little forks, lovely silver dessert forks, butter knives, serrated knives, chopsticks....... AAAAAGH:-( I feel a bit guilty complaining here, as we do possess a dishwasher, but I am desperately sick of loading & unloading the cutlery drawer. for those dear people handwashing all these silvery irritations, I take my hat off to you.
LEGO. I love you so. I do. I will gladly sit & create when begged to play. I choose you over cars or playdough or trains anyday. BUT... why o why so many tiny finnickity little pieces? Why o why are you so hard to spot? How is it one stray piece can prevent an entire creation? How can such a little 'one-square' cause such a catastrophic melt-down? Why are you so infinitely palatable to toddlers?
Are you with me? Do you have any little grievances in your life!?
