I Refuse To Have The Crisis
All For Lack Of Milk

All For Lack Of Milk

It’s Saturday morning and the first day of my holidays.  You would think I would be jumping for joy, however I am having a bit of a disaster.  I have no milk.

I like my cup of tea first thing in the morning, I like to sit and scroll through my social media, catch up with the news and such as I drink my first cup of tea.  Today obviously is not going to be like that.  Today I am sitting here, typing this waiting for the local shop to open.

By the time I post this to let everyone know what a complete disaster of a morning I am having all for the want of a drop of milk, it will almost be opening time.

I shall bundle up in my warm jacket, wrap my scarf round my neck and trudge the whole 200 yards to my local shop.  I will feel so very hard done by until I get back here and get myself a cup of tea.

I suppose it could be worse.  Up until a year ago, my nearest shop was three miles away which could cause some problems if we had snow.

Of course, I know there are people worse off than me, but at the moment when my first holiday morning is not going according to plan, I am being a tad self indulgent.

The question now is what else do I buy at the shop?  I could get a loaf of bread so that I can have toast for breakfast.  Then again, I could buy yum yums or cinnamon swirls which are also very good for breakfast.  I may even buy both as my partner is here and he is not particularly a cake person and certainly not for breakfast, he would prefer toast.

Who could have imagined the simple act of running out of milk could cause such deliberations of a Saturday morning.

Time now to go wrap up against the cold and get my milk, see you on the other side.
