Wow I feel like complete and utter crap right now! I’m sat at my new computer wrapped in a blanket with a glass of Rose’ and a packet of Kettle bites.
My mouth is full of ulcers and my joints are still on the mend after the 20 mile hike on Saturday. My eyes are slowly dropping after a long day of nothing really, although it feels like I have run a half marathon!
I’m yawning my head off and I know I need my bed but instead I am adamant I sit and use this quiet time to my advantage. Tomorrow is another day and that involves more than I can put a pen to paper. I wish time could stop just for a day so I can properly catch up.
There is so much I want to do but just feels like there isn’t enough time in the day and by the time the kids are asleep I’m too tired to do anything other than check social media and then also drop like a fly.
Some of you will know my other Facebook/ Twitter/ Instagram & Pinterest page ‘The Daisy Chain’ I used to make ‘one offs,’ recover chairs/ stools and a little bit of everything actually. Once I received Riley’s diagnosis everything took a back step including this particular passion of mine.
Every day I wake up and one of the first things I see in my room is my sewing machine. I put it there to remind me that I must get back into doing the things I love when I am ready. There aren’t any excuses now and I know I must make time.
At the moment the time I am looking forward to is in September when both Riley and Summer will be at preschool together for 3 hours on 2 different days. I literally cannot wait to have some me time! This is long overdue and probably one of the very few things I have counted down in a long time.
I can go for a jog, take the dogs for a walk, I could blog for 3 hours, I could make bunting…heaven forbid but I could actually sleep for 3 hours without feeling guilty! The world shall be my oyster again…well for those few hours at least.
I have forgotten what it feels like to jump out of my car child free and head into town or to sit and drink a coffee with a friend without having to constantly interrupt her conversation midway to see to one of my little munchkins. I love my kids more than anything in this world but a little break is certainly long overdue!
On that note I’m going to head up and catch as many Z’s as I can before tomorrow comes. Only 4 months to go until September…let’s do the countdown together if you’re in the same boat?
Night night y’all
