… a bright-Spring-coloured, chitter-chattery, do-things, cook-and-clean, tidy-your-hair, act-now type lady – ME!
For the last 6-8 weeks I have been running on autopilot without even realising it. I was staying up really late, eating all the wrong foods, not feeling motivated at all, letting the washing pile up (and up and up). I wasn’t interested in cooking (odd for me) and instead of having my neat menu plan and shopping list I was waiting until 5pm each day to run around flipping this way and that thinking what-the-hell-am-I-going-to-make-for-dinner, inevitably ending in a rather large puddle of ‘something’ which no one particularly wanted to eat, least of all me. I was spending way too much time on the internet, knowing I should be doing other things.
I love Winter, but in retrospect I can see now that I was ready for it to end.
Something about the Spring air has rumbled in the deep and I have spent the last couple of weeks trying to get back in control.
I’ve spent my time…
:: Borrowing a ridiculous number of books from the library in my new bout of enthusiasm… The Healthy Skin Diet, Breath,Handmade Home, Beyond the Rainbow Bridge, Calm and Compassionate Children… to name but a few.
:: Making the beginnings of a little mooshy belly bunny for Baby.
:: Going to bed early, and I mean EARLY — eg. I am in bed… right now… typing this… at 8.30pm.
:: Paying the bills – ON TIME!
:: Celebrating family birthdays.
:: Spending our first night away from Baby for our wedding anniversary… more on that next time.
:: Taking Baby to a local good old fashioned pub to see her first ever band, Rudely Interrupted. I thought it would be too noisy, but she loved it!
:: Getting outside for fresh air and opening up all the doors and windows.
:: Turning off the computer!
What has the Spring sunshine brought into your home? Or perhaps Autumn is inviting you slow down after a long Summer?
