Now generally I subscribe to this and think it is A Good Thing. There is enough real badness in the world without spreading it about in cyberspace as well.
I don’t want to gift to the world a consistently bad-tempered blog, all about how various things annoy me, how tired I feel, recent arguments I have had, how the weather is really getting me down, and what a mess my house is in.
But sometimes, just sometimes, I think it’s good to burst that bubble.
So… this is my workroom today:
1. They are covered in work in progress, and…
2. They are themselves a work-in-progress, i.e. an “I’ve started, so I won’t-quite-get-round-to-finishing” summer project.
I must just add that this
mess work area is also the rear half of our living room, which means that the door is not just shut on it at the end of the day.
It’s half term. It’s been raining all week.
I am unreasonably tired, stupidly grumpy and struggling to entertain lad without leaving him in front of the computer / telly all day.
My bones ache with the damp. And my work ethic is definitely suffering.
As for tidying up, well, the week started well with a spot of floor-mopping and hoovering and toilet cleaning, but unfortunately my tidying-up mojo has now left the building.
The word “slovenly” hovers on the edges of my consciousness.
There are piles of fabric and general “stuff” everywhere.
Hopefully, I’ll rediscover the best of myself again soon.
In the meantime, I hope your week turns out to be a bit less unsightly and a lot more charming than mine.
And if not, there’s always Pinterest to escape to. ♥
