January is long. Not trying to sound like a negative nancy or anything, and I know it's the month of resolutions and positivity, but I just don't get on with it. It drags!

In three weeks we are uprooting our home of two years and moving to a new place. I'm excited, nervous, stressed, devastated to be leaving the sea view, excited to have an outdoor space, worried about moving pixel, thrilled at the thought of having a desk space... etc. etc. It's exhausting!

I've predictably written tons of lists, and even floor plans to try and help me feel on top of everything. I also spent last weekend sorting through and cleaning out my things in a "New Year/Spring Clean" fashion. Now that's a part of January I can get on with.

I keep switching from having bursts of creative energy and frantically sketching up ideas and things to make for the new place, and then plummeting into those moods of not wanting to leave the sofa and whatever book I'm currently reading.

Whilst the rational side of my brain wins out and I know it makes more sense to make a creative mess once we've moved, you can keep up with my scrambled thoughts on pinterest. Anything goes over there at the moment - from floor cushions to gardening plans!


  1. Hey my sweet friend .. Change is always hard. I think your pretty picture or needle work said it best Adventure is out there . Of course that might be my wonder(pus) Mermaid side of me LOL .. I pray that 2014 brings you so many blessings that you will have to hand some over to friends and family . HUGS

  2. Pixel will be fine! Cats complain but they adjust just fine. I wouldn't worry too much about her. d*^_^*b

  3. Congratulations on your soon to be move. I'm sure everything will work out but its one of those things that always makes one feel confused :)

  4. Good luck with the move sweet, it's such an upheaval but it'll all be worth it in the end <3
