It’s been a few days since I last posted, I would like to say I’ve been but I haven’t really. We’re currently house sitting for my nanna and I have been treating it like a little holiday: we have watched lots of telly and spent the last 3 days doing nothing much at all. Charlie is obsessed with Ponyo and we have watched it an ungodly amount of times this week. It is a good film though, so I don’t mind.
Spring wears me out and for reasons I don’t understand I slump into an emotional low around this time every year. I’m not sure what triggers it or why it happens but I feel so restless, so bored, so uninspired. I usually return to normal after a few weeks and I’m starting to feel more ‘me’ already. Maybe I just take a little more time to adjust to the new season + daylight savings time?
Anyway I have joined a writing group called Writing Motherhood and we meet for the first time at the end of the month. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and improving my writing skills. It’s not a workshop or class, it’s just a group of mums who enjoy writing. I’m a little nervous but very excited!
There’s a lot to look forward to over the next couple of months - Chris finishes his Diploma in a few weeks and is already part way through the interview process for a job at Hewlett-Packard. November brings Guy Fawkes, Fireworks, Fairs and Carnival rides, so I’m already looking forward to the new month .
Charlie’s been lots of fun lately, though I feel like I’ve been doing a shitty job as a mother. We’ve watched way too much TV and I’ve been a bit short tempered but I suppose I’m only human. Things will improve though and I am sure we’ll be back to normal soon.
I think that this week, we will take my nana’s dog to the dog park for a good run around. Charlie will enjoy seeing all the dogs playing and being out in the fresh air makes me feel better. Onwards + upwards! ✌
