‘Please don’t whinge at me first thing in the morning.’
I need space. I need solitude. I need to come to terms with my day. I need music. I need a cup of tea.
What I don’t need is bad news and complaints. A child who doesn’t like the breakfast choices. A husband bemoaning politicians. A miaowing cat.
I am not a morning person but it’s more than that. It’s not good for me, for my mind, my productivity, my stress levels or my relationships to start my day with negativity.
It’s not good for anyone.
