Have you had one of those days when everything seems to go wrong?
I was late but it wasn’t my fault. Someone had thought it funny to trip me when I was carrying a drink. Work was already waiting when I sat at my desk.
When I had a break, I barely had time to have something to eat and have a drink because I had to stop friends fighting. The afternoon was no better.
Now I’m home.
“Are you all right?” It was her.
“I’m exhausted. Shut the door behind you please, mummy.”
Life can be hard when you’re five and have to go to school.
