life lately

We’ve had a quiet week since Christmas, caught up with a few friends, done lots of shopping in the sales (must take some pics to post!) and played with our Christmas gifts. I’m trying to get the house back into order, ready for normality to return next week. What I really feel like doing is hiding in my bed for the foreseeable future! Unfortunately that isn’t an option, so instead I’m trying to keep going, and ignore the gremlins that are shouting at me very loudly.
I know the things I should be doing when I’m feeling sad, I even made a list. But I’m lacking any motivation to actually do these things :/ I started a painting the other day, but that feels a bit pointless. I have a pile of fabric and ideas waiting for me to get the sewing machine out. I have lists of things to do. I need a kick up the butt to get myself moving again!
I know my moods cycle through lows and highs… the highs have been here for a long time, and I was kinda hoping they were here to stay. I’ve weathered this storm a thousand times before, and I’m sure I’ll make it through again. Just in need of lots of TLC and some good friends.


I’m loving this little girls curls :D


Baya likes to sit on the table when the big girls are doing things!

Lola’s been enjoying practicing her photography skills too!

  1. Oh, sister I hear ya. I want everyone in the world to stay asleep for three weeks, so I can have some peace and quiet to nurture my blues. Hope you feel a little pinker and redder and sunnier, though. Happy New Year!

  2. I can relate. Sometimes keeping busy helps, other times, allowing yourself to wallow a bit is the “cure.” It’s easy to feel blue in the winter, isn’t it. Hope you have good New Years.

  3. I have been the same too Polly, think its the whole idea of perfection at this time of year that does it to me. But then I feel guilty for feeling low when I have things very good really, a bad circle. Hope you feel better soon and that you manage to keep on top of it. I’m a list making too but at the moment the sheer length of my list is overwhelming me. Feel like I have loads to do so I end up doing nothing!!
