This week just hasn't been my week. I've been flipping tired (that's an understatement!), I'm depressed for several different reasons, chronic guilt is eating away at me, and today my necklace holder which hangs on the back of my door broke off, breaking two of my most favourite necklaces. One had a butterfly and was a one- of- a- kind, very- hard- to- find necklace (readers will know how much I adore butterflies) and the other one a purple one, my favourite colour. Both broken, smashed and unfixable. I'm devastated. I just want to cry. You may be thinking gosh woman, it's just jewellery, get over it, but to me when I'm sick and tried of being sick and tired, being sick and tired of aching, sick and tired of feeling like I have bricks tied to my ankles and completely annoyed as hell with life and with the week I've been having- when something I love breaks I do believe I have the right to feel miserable and upset. That said, it doesn't allow me to be miserable for days, so I am giving myself today to get it out of my system and tomorrow is a new day, a new week and I can start again; happier. This also means that I now have an excuse to go jewellery shopping, so I guess that's a plus!
Nope, I didn't get as far as baking this week but I am happy to report that my bedroom is almost looking spotless! Well, apart from the evident lack of dusting and vacuuming, but hey, I'll get to that this week. This is all thanks to my angry/frustrated/pissed off/I've had enough of this crap mood. Yes, I clean when I'm angry. I'm still trying to figure out if that's a good thing or not! I did, however, get an hour of decent driving practice, hooray! Although after 30 minutes, fatigue set in so I think that goes to say when I'm on my P's I'm only driving short distances.
Unfortunately I've been feeling too unwell to start my sketchbook for the sketchbook challenge. January has been one hell of a month, with my worst fatigue month ever. Hopefully next month I'll have two sketches to show you to make up for it.
Over the next few weeks and months I will be introducing you to some exciting, new and creative topics that I hope will be a permanent feature of this blog. You've probably already noticed some changes that I've recently made. Here's how it looks:
All About Me Monday
Card Making Monday*
Blab About Beauty Tuesday*
Wednesday Weekly Word*
Words Of Wisdom Wednesday
The Nail Files Thursday*
Best Buys Of The Week*
Shabby Chic Saturday*
Sign- in Sunday*
Poetry And Praise*
Random Acts Of Blogging Kindness+
Whenever I feel like it posts
* These will be permanent features of this blog.
+ Random Acts Of Blogging Kindness I hope will be a permanent project of this blog, however, this depends on how well it goes. I am putting everything into this project- my finances, my energy and I can't do it alone. One person can only do so much. I really want to see people blessed and I really want this project to work. It's going to take time but if people don't help me get the word out by blogging about it and tweeting about it, and most of all donating- even if it's just $1, then this project may only happen once every so often- money doesn't grow on trees, I really wish it did though!
Days that have been assigned more than one topic will be alternate weeks (if I'm organised enough). If I have something in that topic to post I'll do a post, if not, I'll write a complete random post, a health post or not post at all (confused yet?). I will not be posting everyday of the week and some weeks I may not even be able to post at all (just in case you were expecting some marathon blogging). So as you can see there will be a little bit of everything, so there's something for everyone! GET EXCITED!!
Goals for the week ahead
I don't have many goals for this week as I've got a lot going on. I do need to make an appointment with my gp and get my stomach problems sorted (hello more tests). Over five months since symptoms began causing real trouble I'm still no better! It's gotta be food related (pun warning!)- I have a gut feeling. I really want to get to the shops this week to get materials for my sketchbook so I can do some sketching this week too.
I am really excited about this week for two reasons:
1. Tomorrow night is chicken parma night at our house! Yum! I'm excited! I will definitely be taking photos (if I don't forget)
2. I'm going for my P's (again) this week!! Eeek!
