I'm trying to like November, I really am - but its not panning out well. The weather is certainly not helping, and I am not a fan of dark nights at all - the odd one or two are cosy, but whole months of them make me feel "caged" especially when hubby is working late evenings/nights. At least in the summer I can sit in the garden until late. I feel like I live with Jeremy Clarkson (perish the thought). His is the only voice I hear. The young man watches Top Gear and repeats of Top Gear, and repeats of repeats of Top Gear until I can no longer bear it!! I love it after the 21st December when I know that we are headed back in the right direction. Ive also had loads of really boring jobs to do too - ie a Summers worth of housework neglect (when I was "playing out") has taken its toll, and being "caged" forces me to see what needs to be done. We have decorated our bedroom, the kitchen is getting a "makeover" (when it could really do with a refit) and the stairs is also having a lick of paint. Ive been making my mum some new curtains as she has had a new kitchen and bathroom - but that's another story for when you feel your blood pressure needs sending through the roof!! Only my mum could make 2 hours in Dunelm Mills unbearable for me. And so, I decided I need to look forward - and this will keep me going through the next few dark months.
Deep blue, calm seas,
Beach Cafe's and clear blue skies,
Warm Rock pools.
Getting back to the fast approaching festive season, check out this post on Lynne's lovely blog. How I wish I could have a walk around this of a dark evening.
