We all have bad days, but one thing is true; no cloud is so dark that the sun can’t shine through.
On Sunday we celebrated Little Po’s birthday and luckily it turned out well. I was supposed to make cake and sandwiches – an easy enough task. But believe it or not, the cakes were flat.
I was disheartened, disappointed and devastated. Imperfect cakes are not a novelty and in the old days, I invariably managed to pull it off with a quick fix rescue operation. But on Saturday nothing worked . In hindsight that could very well have been the problem- the old baking soda and old baking powder that didn’t work.
Sadly, I realised this after the cake was baked . Never mind, I consoled myself. I was sure the sandwiches would be perfect. After all, I’d even ordered special bread. And what could go wrong with sandwiches ? Apparently, they can. The next day my Nutella pin wheel sandwiches were a dismal failure. I had to abandon plans after the first slice of bread refused to slice. This time the fault lay in the bread – it was too fresh.
When simple things start going wrong , I have only one solution- don’t do anything. Just wait and bide your time for there are times in a person’s life when things go wrong for no reason.
Over the years I’ve observed a strange phenomenon: things strangely go awry when the rains come pouring down. Does that happen to you?
For the past week the rain clouds have gone but the rainy day blues have not .
