Not the best of days #firstworldproblems

This is a complete #firstworldproblems post. Here is a list of things that went wrong today: I didn’t sleep well thanks to a scratchy throat. I started the day with lemsip. I hate lemsip. I got wet in the rain in town. I got hit in the back by a shopping basket. I got wet […]
