Usually when I am in a bad mood I don't like to blog. Writing takes energy and I feel sapped when I am grumpy. Being in a bad mood sucks all the energy away. Life has been hard lately and I am not dealing with it very well. I was trying to think about how I could share being grumpy without sounding too whiny and miserable. I was sorting out my feelings this morning so I could present them on the page to you. That's when I remembered these little fuzzy brown creatures that captured our family's heart when we discovered them in England:
In this episode of the endearing, quirky show Mother Flump asks Perkin, "Are you feeling alright? You're looking sorry for yourself this morning."
Perkin replies, "No, I'm not feeling alright. I'm feeling all wrong. Sort of yucky, all horrible. I feel umpty. Fed up. I'm a fed up Flump."
"The flumpet music is too bumpy.
The water is too lumpy.
The floor is too wet and sloshy.
And the porridge is too loud.
It's a too much morning."
"Cheer up or you'll be under a cloud all day.
You can't see the nice side of anything under a cloud."
