My week has been a whirlwind of activity. I cannot think of a single day in which I had time to rest, never mind write! I can feel my mind becoming overloaded. Manic bursts of energy followed by pure exhaustion. Days rush past with unnatural speed. Tight cracking jaw, the frustrating insistence of a tension headache. … Continue reading …And Breathe
I woke up several times in the night with a swollen throat and the beginnings of migraine. The migraine hit in full force this morning. I didn't manage to get out of bed until around one in the afternoon. I scribbled a few words down, but I don't know if they'll even make it into … Continue reading Just A Little Writing
I may sound like a broken record but here goes anyway. I've been feeling a little down recently. I bet if I bothered to check, that phrase would be the most common throughout my blogging. For those of you who don't know, I've suffered from depression for a fair while now. For the most part, … Continue reading Ha.
I'm struggling. with writing, with sewing, with socialising. I'm even finding it difficult to get out of bed in the morning. I've managed to do bits of writing, but it's the bare minimum. I feel sad.

I've got the substance done now, it's just the style I want to work on. I find it … Continue reading Why do I avoid Writing?
Just a little blog post today as it's been a very good but exhausting. I had a great day out at a blogger's meet up hosted by Sew Essential. It was so much fun! I started a sweet little embroidery project and had a lovely time chatting with fellow stitcher's. I will have to rest … Continue reading Sewing and blogging
Something is going on with my anxiety today. Things are just a bit more difficult than they should be. Town was incredibly busy today and it felt as though everyone was a threat. No writing today, just anxiety. Flowy was a bit of a life saver tonight. I've no idea what tomorrow will bring. The … Continue reading Anxiety
I only wrote the first couple of sentences of a chapter today. I'm finding it very difficult to get started again. The screen hurts my eyes. Yesterday we did the first stock take at Crafty. I spent the day counting buttons. It all sounds very fun, but after the first five tubes or so my … Continue reading Ho-Hum
I've had a lovely, if utterly exhausting trip to see my husbands family in Wales. it's the biggest, most anxiety provoking thing I have attempted in over two years. I survived it. I also learned that a lot of family in Wales read my blog. Hi Guys. I will probably natter on about it a bit … Continue reading I’m back!
