Despite having a fantastic show on QVC (friday just gone), why is January such a tiresome and bleak month? The lack of energy in various departments of my life is sucking my will to live. Craftwise its a busy time of year for some as various peeps prepare for CHA and Stitches. I've got a few things to organise that way - makes me happy but its a few days of this lousy month taken care of. Most of January, for me, is neatening the edges of my Tax return and hoping I hold out from the lack of daylight. I've a list as long as my arm of things to do but seriously, Im looking at them with glazed eyes and am hoping the magic craft fairy comes a-waving her wand and making it all "blow away"..........said in the tones of Mike Wahowski from Monsters Inc and his unfiled paperwork.
I don't want to go anywhere or do anything. What I would love is for one of my old RAF Sergeants to come beating down my door and whooping my enthusiasm back into shape. Better still, I'd kill to have a week at an outdoor Bootcamp. Yes! that's what I want. Somebody make it happen. I can't be bothered looking any up. **dark cloud, go away you bothersome little cowbag**
Don't ask my why I think that Diet Coke is going to give me some energy and the lack of gluten in my diet is going to give me a wheat free/carb coma-less source of jiggy. Even the last of the unloved Fudges from the tin of Roses look appealing and believe me, when Fudges look appealing in my current state of mind, I know I'm scraping the barrel of hope. Ugh. Somebody rescue me from this funk.
**Leaves my blog writing for a couple of hours to see if anything cures my ail**
Some 3 hours later I'm back at this blog entry and nope, not even Dancing on Ice and Sherlock has sparked any ember of inspiration. I'm off to go and watch 500 Days of Summer or maybe Juno to pep me up. I'll be back laters.
**Leaves blog writing for a good two hours to test my fave movie perk-me-up**
Aha! Knew it, bloody knew it. 500 Days of Summer (new fave movie ever, knocking Juno off its number 1 fave movie spot) has shifted a few of the dark clouds above my head. Do I see a beam of light and a a few inches of space on my craft desk. I'm just about to go and wizz up something pretty. I'll def be back laters.
**Leaves blog writing for a good hour to shuffle papers, stroke my ribbon and find something I thought I'd lost a while ago. But it came to me in a dream the other night and guess what - it was there!****
Here we go - bright, cheery and ribbony yums
Maybe this card could be the catalyst to a brighter few days, no?
