A Day of Misfortune
I’ve just got back from work and I’ve had a really bad hair day. For starters, I got up late. I must have switched off my alarm clock when it went off and I didn’t wake up till an hour later. Panic stations! Instead of having a leisurely bath, washing my hair, choosing my clothes carefully and having a nourishing breakfast, I climbed into yesteday’s clothes, grabbed a couple of biscuits and headed for the door.
