This week was back to school and the first day was mine. It should have been really productive.
Since coming back from holiday I have been feeling not just holiday blues but very very run down. While away I ate huge amount of things I know really don't work for me - bread, cheese (ugh! salami as well!) lots of chocolate, sweets. As for the drinking, it wasn't tons but where I would never ordinarily drink beer at home I was sinking these really refreshing cans of kronenburg back like coke! And for some unexplained reason I never felt hungover which I really would if I was at home, it all felt very encouraging. Holiday rules I guess and the benefit of having no real responsibilities.
Anyway, in reality, when it all stopped and I got back the result was feeling pretty ropey for about a week. Lots of juice and veggies everyday has me back on my game!
My day to myself was a bit of a funny day, I'd really looked forward to it. Since Ruby has been at school, the longest time I have been away from the two of them has been a Friday morning for about 2 and a bit hours. I only had really a half hour between getting back from drop offs before going to get my hair done but that was unhurried, unhassled. Nobody asking me to take them to the toilet, get them a snack etc... I got a wash on. When I got back was really strange, nothing had changed since I went out, the house was still. I hung the washing and started painting a wall in our spare room because we have a student moving in this week. That was a mistake. It took ALOT longer than I anticipated to get everything together and it was VERY hot. Still, I got it done and still had time to make myself some lovely food, my hair was wrecked though. Then I picked up my crochet hook and you can see the results of my 'free time' - not even a square! Ha!
I've no plans to leave the house AT ALL for this weeks 'day' but Gwyn and I have a LONG list of DIY so no doubt it'll all get sucked up with that. To think I was envisioning painting, writing, yoga and crochet!
Had a bummer of a day with the car yesterday, so today I woke up feeling bushed before I started, I hope I wake up in a minute! I'm not ashamed to admit I'm writing this while the children watch back to back CBeebies. I've also made another yarn order to finish up the big blanket project which is taking the edge off a bit. Happy days.
Hope you all have a great creative weekend with plenty of sleep!
