A Testing Monday….

I think Mondays were invented to completely piss people off. The start of a new week, and always that brings plenty of things that can and do go wrong.

Like this particular Monday. The weather, well in a word, filthy. Cold and rainy and we’ve gone from 29 degrees to about 4 degrees in 10 days. Then, just to confuse everyone, it’s about to get warmer again by the Bank Holiday. Go figure.

I decided to venture out and change up some coins that I save up. There’s a machine in the local supermarket that takes them and you exchange the voucher for notes. This was all well and good, until I got to the supermarket and the machine was broken. I see, this is the sort of day it’s going to be.

So, I managed to get to another supermarket, about a mile and a half away, and change up these damn coins. This I had done successfully until the cashier wanted to check something with another member of staff. I thought, I just want to put the notes in the bank and go home, get in the warm out of this dreadful weather. Finally, it was all sorted and the task which should have taken 45 minutes took an hour and a half. Not pleased but Mondays are a total joy!

Autism at work! Best laid plans going awry once again and me getting anxious in trying to cope with the unexpected. A bit like most of my everyday life.
