Random picture of a water lilly, taken on our honeymoon
Yesterday morning the rain came down as if someone had left the tap on 'upstairs', but by the afternoon it was brilliant sunshine. Yesterday morning I didn't even really feel like getting out of bed (I had too - toddlers are pretty effective at dragging you out), but by the afternoon everything was right with the world and I felt like I could actually get something done (the reality of having two small children is very different, but hey, the thought was there!). Today, the good old 'can't be arsed' fairy is fluttering round my head and yep. it's windy, grey and cold out there.
I've never been diagnosed with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), but like many people I do get very down in the winter due to the lack of sunlight. I have thought about investing in one of those UV lights, but to be honest the ones that actually work cost a lot more than I can justify at the moment.
The house is frankly a disaster zone, with so much needing sorting, but with the fairy of can't be arsed in near-permanent residence, that's way down the list. In fact, I don't even particularly feel like doing anything I actually enjoy as something started usually ends up as something never finished!
Even this post was going to be longer, but I'm not really managing to put my finger on what I actually want to say. I'm not even sure what I am trying to say, really!
Our situation isn't great at the moment (not that we are any different from many others) and we just seem to be in limbo, unable to make any kind of move, which is what's so frustrating.
Anyway, hopefully I'll be back soon with happier things to say and share. Thank you if you've made the effort to read this x
