. . . it's going to be one of those days. I measured out the oats into the saucepan, added my one part milk to three of water and reached for the salt grinder to add a little salt before cooking my breakfast. Only what I grabbed wasn't the salt, it was the pepper and my porridge got a good grinding of the stuff before I realised. While fishing the pepper out with the tea strainer, I reflected on whether I'd got it all over and done with early or whether it was a sign of Worse To Come and it would be sensible to go back to bed and ride the day out there.
Unfortunately, the latter isn't a realistic option, so watch out school - here I come!
