February 2016. Stop. Stop the car. I want to get out.
Life is moving at a pace that I’m not entirely comfortable with. I’m just finding that nothing is getting done. Life takes everything I have.
Little man needs me a little more than usual right now. There are a few things going on behind the scenes that are making him a little insecure and his sparkle has reduced slightly and so I am working hard to build him up and get him back to his usually bright self. That means that everything else, the washing, ironing (??!) cleaning and tidying etc, is done with his help and takes much longer or when he is at pre-school! However, he goes for 4hrs, 3 mornings a week and by the time I’ve dropped him off, returned home, tidied up and taken the dog for a meander, there’s not a lot of time left for blogging and dealing with my human sized pile of things to sell on ebay and drawers that I need to sort out etc.
It doesn’t help that I’m slower than most at everything, thanks to my health, and the Chronic Fatigue and need to rest my back mean that I go to bed with little man nearly every night.
So, my New Years Resolutions. A month late, but they’ve taken this long to show themselves as needing to be worked on or changed – to organise myself into a routine. I find that I go to the Supermarket most days. That’s a huge waste of time! I need to get back into lists and using my diary and plan, plan, plan. I think the slow cooker needs to make a reappearance and I need to relax and let some things wait for another month.
Hopefully, I’ll find myself back on my little place on the internet, a little more often but until then, thanks for sticking with me.
