today I'm exhausted, lacking in sleep, lacking in motivation.  Feeling a little bit claustrophobic with all the 'stuff' around here.  In cupboards, on benches, oh God, the SHED!  I can feel a garage sale coming on, in fact at this point I could just open the gate, pop up some balloons with a sign that says 'TAKE IT!" take it all..

I've lots of things I should be doing, there's always a list a mile long.  Some things are more important than others, some things are just things I'd like to do...

The little guy has been 'difficult' at nighttime. Waking most nights for the last couple of weeks needing something, anything, a night light on, a night light off, a fan on, a fan off, water, it's too quiet, the crickets are too noisy, he needs his lego guy on the bed ready for morning, anything!  He's never been a great sleeper, I'm sure this will change..eventually.  But today, hubby & I are both exhausted.

Today I'm going to tidy up, I feel better when things are tidy.  I'm going to make myself something.  I'd like to make a skirt, I have one in my head, but I'm not going to shop for the fabric today, so a scarf maybe. That's it, that's all I'm doing today.  Hubby's bringing home a movie & some wine, we'll sort something out for dinner, I'm sure the freezer is full of leftovers especially for days just like this.

Looking forward to the weekend, and hopefully a good nights sleep will have me re-energised & ready to trim that hedge outside before it lifts the roof off the deck!


  1. Sounds all a bit icky and down in the dumps really. Some days are like that though. Sounds like you have a good action plan - make something, clean something, reheat and eat something! Tomorrow is a new day! Virtual bloggy hug being sent your way!

  2. I have days like this Mel where it just all feels a little overwhelming, but tomorrow is another day and hopefully the sun will be shining :)


  3. I vote for a nice bottle of red and an Indian takeaway! I hope your day gets better. Oh and I want to go to your garage sale ;-)

  4. Nothing worse than being tired when there are things to do. I usually clean when I'm tired, no concentration needed when you clean. Hope you get some sleep tonight.

  5. I know days just like this. Hoping you enjoy that bottle of wine and freezer meal this evening.

  6. I'm so with you on getting rid of stuff, feels overwhelming when you're tired! Wine sounds great!
