A few thoughts

It's funny how inspiration can strike; sometimes it's when I'm looking through photographs, maybe scrolling through Twitter or having a quiet moment with a cup of coffee. Most of the time a thought occurs to me that I'd like to elaborate on while I'm busy and can't do a darned thing about it except hope I can remember my train of thought for much, much later. Most weeknights I don't reach the laptop until around 10pm by which time I'm tired and no good for anything else except either blogging or falling asleep on the sofa (sometimes both). It's becoming a habit that long after I should be asleep I suddenly hit my stride and become super productive with loads of ideas and can't leave until I have got everything done that I want to.

This time of year for me is that tipping point between the end of the good weather for being outside and the Christmas festivities. Maybe I'm just in a bit of a funk but I'm just not interested in the C word and as it stands if it was left to me then no presents would be bought for a few weeks yet, I'm in the wrong frame of mind. Let's hope it lifts soon.

There are so many bloggers that seem to thrive at this time of year, while I almost feel like I'm floundering with no enthusiasm for the heinous cold weather that is creeping in. If I turn into Mrs Sarcastic Miseryguts in the Sticks just nod and smile.... it should pass in time.

  1. You're not alone Sophie! I always feel different at this time of year- it's the dark nights that do it to me. I have super ideas and lots of enthusiasm during the day while at my desk and I look forward to getting home but when I get there I just mope about. I hate not being able to get out for walks after work. Even the dog doesn't want to go for a walk!

  2. If it's any consolation, I just feel gloomy a lot of the time at the moment. I just try, try, try to get through it and keep busy. And I have not done much about C yet!x

  3. I feel gloomy in November/start of December time - I can't get excited about Christmas until the middle of December and get quite grumpy when people do get excited about it.
