Mrs.Mop has a moan

I had such a long, whiny, self indulgent, ‘poor me’ post planned. I’d even put off writing it last night because I wanted to give it my full undivided attention. Maximum whinage. And yet, as I’ve sat down to expose all about a certain little unpleasant experience from last week that left me questioning myself and everything I stand for (well, almost – us Irish love to exaggerate, it’s in the blood) the will to purge has suddenly left me. Just like that.

We’ve all been there. Had our ego’s dented and made to feel foolish for being who we are. But its how we deal with such things that makes us the better person, right? Rising above it and all that.

I’m reminded of something John Candy’s character said in one of my all time favourite comedies, Planes, Trains and Automobiles ….’I like me. My Wife likes me. My customers like me’, which, in short, made me realise I shouldn’t give a damn what others think – as long as I have a few people in my corner I’ll be alright. The Candyman always knew how to deliver those lines that almost broke your heart – he might’ve been better known for his comic ability but the guy could freakin’ act!

I digress.

So yeah. People who make you feel like crap. Don’t let ’em. Simples.

Oh, and I’ve taken to wearing my scarf in the fashion of Mrs. Mop. I kinda dig it. You dig? On second thoughts, don’t answer, my delicate ego can only take so many beatings per year and I’m already sorted for a good six months.

what i’m wearing. …scarf/vintage …..boat print tee/orla kiely for uniqlo ….bird print jacket/henry holland for debenhams ….high waisted trousers/american apparel ….sandals/dorothy perkins ….bag/zara

    “rising above it” you said it exactly. When shit happens it’s too easy to react when that in actual fact just makes us feel worse. Also why devote so much attention to something negative when we can be thinking nice things instead!
    Love the outfit today, was so gutted to have missed the Orla Kiely collection for Uniqlo.

    Well, I’ll just pipe up and say I love your blog and what it stands for! And the Planes, Trains and Automobiles quote is great – one of our favorite comedies. Love your outfit here, too – nice pattern mixing.

    – October 🙂

    Mrs Mop has never looked so beautiful and glam! You’re right Aine. Rise above it and don’t let them drag you down.

    Thanks everyone – feeling much more positive. I think blogging can be quite cathartic like that. Your kind words mean a lot. Onwards and upwards!
