Life lately...

Happy Friday everyone! How are you? I've definitely caught the dreaded lurgy, and after a busy-too-busy-to-be-ill January, February has got off to a very slow start. But that was to be expected I suppose. I always get ill this time of year, where it doesn't matter how much sleep I get it never seems to be enough. I think it is my bodies way of saying 'enough of the cold and dark already.'

It's been a while since I sat down with you all and had a cup of tea and a catch up hasn't it? I've cut down my blogging schedule massively lately, focusing on writing about subjects I really have something to say about rather than putting pressure to put something out three times a week, but today I thought I'd just check in with you all. You know to remind you that behind my slightly jaunty, slightly inaccurate metaphorical ramblings, there is in fact a real person.

The Creativity Tank.

Happy Friday everyone! How are you? It is FINALLY the last weekend of January! I don't know about you, but this may have been the longest month of my life! I guess that 'New Year Gumption' never really kicked in, and while I've actually had an amazingly productive, busy and happy month, I'm definitely feeling a little drained.

The part of me that has felt particularly drained lately, has been my creativity tank. You know that tank that everyone has that fuels new ideas and gives you the energy to make those ideas happen? And I truly believe everyone has a creativity tank. Sure some peoples tank is a little bigger than others, some peoples tank is a little rusty and in need of repair, and other people have that tank but have never really known what to do with it. Whatever the state of it, everyone has one.

I spent last Sunday rearranging furniture. It's something I like to do from time to time when I feel like things have gotten a little stale, and I need to find some creative motivation again. It's also a family habit that I've picked up from Mamma J.

The problem with rearranging things is that 9 times out of 10, they get a whole lot worse before they get better.

You start off thinking "I need to put some washing away", and then you realise, you've nowhere to put the washing. You stand there thinking, but this washing CAME from that wardrobe, so how come it won't go back? Then you realise your whole wardrobe system is no longer working. So before you can put the new washing into the wardrobe you have to take everything else out.
