Any personality transplant suggestions?

I am currently finding the whole mum thing rather too much. I am very impatient, ratty and vile with my children and fly off thehandle for no reason. I have just spent the weekend with a paragon of a mother who seems to be truly selfless, coping with all the incessant demands of her 4 children with grace and humour, whereas my two send me up the wall. I work part-time, which is my salvation, and I do ADORE my children, but I find the day to day SO hard and wearing, and I find myself counting the hours till my partner comes home, or till I can palm off the girls onto someone else (not very possible as we live miles away from all family).
WE have recently moved to a new area and I am aware that this is making us all more than usually tired and stressed. BUt I am very aware that each bad day goes toward the whole of their experience. Anyone have any ideas for a personality transplant?!!!!

Well bondgirl, WSM is enough to make anyone ratty I think I lived in Bristol years ago (and went to WSM as a child, the mud being my abiding memory) but moved from West London to Devon 3 years ago. Although we're now contemplating Bristol, we've no idea where, lots of 'what ifs' to sort out before we know whether we're going or not really. I'm glad your day ended with a revelation though! I also reckon I pass the wine test despite being lentilly-ish.
