Dear Mary Poppins

 

I am not sure of your availability at the moment but wanted to approach you about a fantastic job opportunity in Surrey. I have three fabulous children but am slowly loosing the plot and would appreciate some mentoring and guidance from you.

 

Maybe it’s been a long winter (although I was drinking alfresco in February so perhaps not)? But my levels of patience and tolerance are definitely diminishing. My enthusiasm for arts and crafts is nil. I do not want to pick up another toy, bribe another child to eat

I’m a bit shouty at the moment, grumpy; spend a lot of time muttering under my breath. This does not make me fun. I can be fun. I know it has happened, I have been fun with my kids, my husband, and my friends and family. I distinctly remember it but it does seem like a while ago now. I miss being fun. I miss not caring about the mess, being able to embrace the chaos and not always feeling like I am on Challenge Anneka.

Or, and you can be truthful here, maybe if we could just have a chat and you told me that every now and then, when you are delving deep into that magic bag you are whispering ’For Gods Sake’ I would feel a bit better. Because honestly, I do struggle that anyone can be that cheery and fun ALL. THE. TIME. You do have a great hat, magic bag and catchy song but really? Not even a tiny bit annoyed,

ever… hmmmmm

 

Actually Mary don’t worry, this letter has done me the world of good. I think I just needed a chat and a new bag to grumble into and I will be ok. But thanks for listening and if you are ever local do pop by for a cuppa. Please excuse the mess, I will have been busy having fun with the kids and shopping for bags (and hats).

 

Much Love
