One of those days

Did you ever have one of those days, when everyone seems to want to have a go at your for just about anything? Well, today is one of those days for me. I've checked my forehead and it doesn't say "Have a go at me today". It couldn't anyway, as there isn't enough room to write all that anyway...but it was worth checking for just in case :D

Maybe it's just me today...wrong place / wrong time, but I think the French can be pretty aggressive when things do not go their way. Okay, I admit it, I can let a little aggressive to, but boy am I learning to turn the other cheek and walk away. What's the point in verbals here anyway? I really don't know enough French to get into it with them. I've started to notice that I kind of switch off.

I seem to be doing that a lot lately. I was driving by myself the other day and lost about 3kms of my journey. That kind of scared me though, especially when I thought about how I'd gotten onto that stretch of the motorway.

A funnier side I have also recently noticed, especially when I'm in the check-out queue at a supermarket, it that I have adopted a little light music in my head from an old kids TV show that I grew up with in the UK...a theme tune from Vision On with Tony Hart when they showed all the art the kids sent in. I always wanted to send something in but it was just one of those things I never got round to doing. He did some brilliant artwork..ahhh..those where the days...

  1. I hate those days! How fun to hear the music! When someone starts getting agressive, just smile at them and turn the music in your head up louder. :)

  2. Oh I know that feeling - seems to happen to me more often than not. Aw, Tony Hart! I used to love him.

  3. I met Tony Hart, painting a mural in a shopping centre in cambridge. He was tiny and i loved him even more.

    I used to meet aggressive people with equal aggression, but now i think "what's the point?", walk away and let them get on with it...

  4. I was sad to read that he died last year at 83...but what also surprised me was that Rolf Harris is now 79. God I feel ancient now..oh well..off to watch Billy Connolly on the telly..wonder if he'll show his bum off during this series..he usually does :D
