Good morning to you all - how are you this morning, we've woken to cloud and rain which means it's warmer than it's been thankfully.
Apparently Monday was the most depressing day of the year - my hubby's retort was therefore "When is the happiest?" - do they even bother to work that one out or do they just like doom and gloom. Presumably the happiest will be mid summer which is July time (in this country), it'll be near pay day which is usually around the end of the month, perhaps it's around the time the children break up from school - so I'm thinking maybe the 26th July would be the happiest - what do you think? Or has someone worked this out and will the news be spreading this positive picture nearer the time (I'm thinking not - news likes to be miserable I've noticed - unless your Russell Howard).
Wednesday morning already - time whizzing by again - think it's because work is so busy and manic at the moment. I was quite honestly last night in the worst mood, Tuesdays are always long days and trying to switch off from work is almost impossible which means I'm still zoned into work all evening. Now both hubby and said 11 year old like asking questions - usually the type I can't answer and in a normal evening I would try and provide a rational answer, but not on a tuesday - you'd have thought they'd have learnt from this - but no they kept asking and verbally pushing until I had to point out that I wasn't functioning mentally - I hadn't realised it prior to that but I wasn't I just couldn't process the questions and asking me more than once didn't mean that the answers were going to come any faster or easier - as they learnt. So I went quiet (always a bit dangerous with me - as I am the noise of this household), plonked myself on the sofa, popped on Stargazing Live and went to sleep - why? Well because it was probably less dangerous than me allowing the mood to fester. Am I the only one that this sort of thing happens to? I honestly didn't mean to be down or grumpy but after a day of questions the last thing I need is an evening of them if you know what I mean.
Woke up a couple of hours later, said 11 year old in bed, hubby watching TV and all had righted itself. Now how on earth do I make sure this isn't a weekly occurrence? I don't mean to be 'moody' but when I'm in work zone how do I pull myself back out and go into a different zone? And before you say it I'm not sure sleep is the answer either!
Anyhow that's Wednesday's dilemma question for you to consider, how's your week going? Have you done a lot, been anywhere interesting? Met up with friends, chatted on the phone? Are you enjoying January or longing for bright crisp spring days?
A few of you may have picked up on my hypnoslimmer pledge at the beginning of the year, a quick update to say it's going quite well. I'm still getting used to it but have made some progress already. Now if you're wondering why didn't I join Weight Watchers or Slimming World (like I've done previously), it's because I decided I needed a whole new approach to sorting out my weight which didn't revolve around food and hypnoslimmer seemed to fit the bill. Plus all previous efforts on those systems sees a weight loss followed by a weight gain and some and I really can't afford to put on any more weight. I'll keep you informed of my progress as time proceeds if you're interested.
Right I must have a layout lurking that I've not shared previously - this a double page layout from when we went to Bolton Castle and met Bilbo the owl.
