Hi, I say this with a big heavy sigh.
Why the sigh? Let me explain, I feel unbalanced in my work and home life, and ME life. All work, work, work and running about after kiddo and hubby seems to be my depressing life right now and has been for some time. I don’t know how to reverse it. I don’t know how to go about claiming some me time back. I am writing this in desperation that one of you may have some advice!!!
All the inventive ideas and creativity is abundant and overflowing in my mind but when I am GIVEN some breathing space – I am either too exhausted to carry anything to fruition, or most often don’t even bother starting a project if I can’t visualise the completion in a timely way (I cannot have a million unfinished projects hanging about the place creating clutter – just one unfinished project drives me batty). Hence why I haven’t posted anything in a long, long time. It’s not that I have forgotten, I have just fallen off the path and am trying to find my way back.
Speaking of unfinished projects – what has happened with the bunny lamp you ask? Well, kiddo smashed it accidentally not long after it had dried, so the bunny is now missing its ears and needs repairing………….. ugh, it’s the previously mentioned ONE unfinished project – cue the BATS .
What about the LED seed light I made to light the night in style, how is that going? Well thanks for asking – it is still glorious although doesn’t get used all that often and I recently found solar LED seed lights almost identical to the one I made (the only difference were they were plastic and the shape was slightly different) for $5 each at a clearance store and I could hang them in the garden…. so uh, what the shit?… a big fabulous sarcastic ‘whatever’ universe – just whatever……………..
Also, awhile back I posted a mystery post with a ‘watch this space’ included…….. Well the space is now most notably the place where ideas go to
die hibernate – cobwebbed, mostly abandoned, with the exception of the odd tumbleweeds. A fricken sea of tumbleweeds as deep as the Mariana trench…..
Don’t say my posts are not educational, even if they are about nothing…
I am hoping the (very short) break over the Christmas/New Year holiday will give me an a small window of opportunity to unburden myself with some of this pent up creativity………. please let it be so. AND THAT’S WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS SANTA!! Lets start afresh again in 2017.
On the plus side my birthday came and went and I brought a pair of Sperry Top Sider Saltwater Duck Boots since I had to experience what all the fuss was about. AMERICA you were on point with the TOMS I have lived years of my life in TOMS!! and I am 100% a sucker for casual comfy slightly odd footwear!! (Disclaimer: I will never wear CROCS). I had the boots shipped from the US to the ass end of the world in NZ (I LIVE THERE!!) where I am sure it WILL NEVER EVER ever get cold enough to justify a pair of boots like these…
They arrived last week and it’s SUMMER in this country we are in the midst of heat waves during the day, cool turbulent nights, 90-100% humidity, earthquakes, strange geothermal activity, and just the normal tropical rubbish that goes along with that type of weather – oh and weird warm rain – which is much needed as someone needs to water the garden and it’s also a welcome relief to the rollercoaster weather………… and guess what I’m doing? Wearing my boots -that’s right, and don’t worry I have got my earth friendly ‘full circle day tripper glass 19oz’ thumb indented water bottle (also a birthday present – to myself) handy in the case I die of heat exhaustion, or dehydration, although both scenarios are very unlikely I should really put some water in it just in case. Oh and the comfort factor of these boots is next level…. I couldn’t be more comfortable unless I were wearing my PJ’s. They get my tick of approval. Thanks again and good job done America!
Unlike previous years, where I’ve shared with you tales from my bountiful summer vegetable garden of deliciousness, or DIY xmas gift projects…. This year I have nothing except my well wishes and I hope you all have a great end to this year and begin the new year with vigour!
