Okay, You Win

Today beat me. To a pulp.

It was relentless and I lost my temper more than once.

Cat Stevens to the rescue. A drive to the ocean (my place of refuge) and the stero SUPER loud did the trick. My children are crying? I can't hear crying! Moments later and they are asleep while im looking at this magic and the sun is warming my face.



If you've had a crap one, let this tune cheer you up



Oh and please, if you need a laugh- read this over at Potty Mouth Mama.

  1. What a perfect way to end a crappy day. And how therapeutic is singing at the top of your lungs! I do it A LOT.
    Hope you have a better weekend! xx

  3. That sounds bliss (not the crying). Getting out of the house when having a crappy one always does the trick. I wish I had the ocean nearby x

  4. That has GOT to help!

    I can't find an email for you... wanted to ask if it's okay if I use one of your Tim images on my blog tonight? It's not a 'family' shot - it's the jumper / garland on the lights shot? You know, that jumpery garlandy lighty shot? If you're not happy, just email me at maxabella@gmail.com and I'll remove it pronto!! Thanks Emily!

  5. Wow, have you been in my head this week? My temper has been lost many times too. I felt like they were beating me,They were taking not one bit of notice. I was totally loosing control & I was wondering if there was something wrong with me. I know there is better ways. A drive in the car and music has helped. Didn't have Cat but he has done it for me many times in the past!

  7. Oh I'm hearing ya! I have taken solace in the ocean many a time, when the day has whipped my butt. I feel so lucky that I can do that, I don't know where I'd be without that coastline just down the road.
    Glad you ended up on top of the day. Well done xo
