If you say so.
I used that term, because I can well imagine how stressed the OP was... she's late, her kids are in the car, so she is going to be thinking on them, there are guests, the cake isn't right, what happens doesn't go to plan, her stress level is building, so things go even less right, the MOB is milling around, the guests are milling, stress is rising, cake is still not going right...
So, yes, all round, this entire job is, imo, a disaster. What would you call it?
Honest is honest. Having read some of the other threads on this forum, please don't patronise me by saying that "we are all friends" - because that is just not true.
