Advent Treat Day Thirteen – Cutting Myself Some Slack

Yesterday, I had the kind of cold that makes you burst into tears for no reason and have to make up reasons to leave conversations you haven’t finished because you might faint on the person you’re talking to and make them spill their tea. Normally I pretend this kind of stuff isn’t happening, to the point of lying about how I’m feeling and doing things I know full well will make me feel worse. But yesterday I told my boss that I wasn’t well enough to facilitate a meeting, and let him make me a cup of tea. I know that this is a pathetic advent treat, but I am cutting myself slack on this score too.
