Have you ever had one of those days/weeks/months?
According to Wikipedia -
To be "at sixes and sevens" is an English phrase and idiom, common in the United Kingdom. It is used to describe a state of confusion or disarray.
Well that is how I have been feeling this last few weeks.
As some of you know, I am not in paid work at the moment and refer to myself as 'semi-retired' instead of unemployed.
How I used to yearn for a time when I was at home all day so that I could:
- do all of my household chores to my satisfaction
- make wonderful home cooked meals
- meet up with other friends for 'cake & coffee'
- go into the city to lunch with former work colleagues
- finally go to Ikea and Harbour Town
- just have the freedom to 'go shopping' for the hell of it
- spend ALL DAY crafting/sewing
- you get the gist of this list ........... I bet you could even add a few of your own desires ;-)
Since Christmas, I have had a hard time concentrating on one thing. If I am sewing, I am thinking about the next card I have to make. If I am making a card, I am thinking about what I can sew in the hope of selling something. When I am on the computer, I am thinking about all of the other things I should be doing ;-) like dishes, washing, ironing - you know the boring stuff ;-) When I am doing household chores, I think about all the blogs I could be visiting ;-)
During January, I compiled my UFO (UnFinished Objects) list and had a real sense of achievement when I actually finished one of those items - Now I seem to be stuck on the next thing to tackle/start. Should it be another UFO or can I start on a new project?
I also compiled a list of up-coming birthdays so that I can make the required birthday cards in advance - I know I have a birthday coming up next week and do you think I can get motivated to make a card? I have been 'brewing' ideas for a few weeks now - I actually think it is because it is a milestone birthday for a very special friend and I have too many ideas floating around and cannot settle on one ;-)
I think I need to spend some time 'organising' the areas I spend most of my time - kitchen, Craft & Sewing - so that I can produce these wonderful home cooked meals, beautifully personalised cards & make some gorgeous handmade items to sell so that I don't have to return to the workforce.
Maybe if I give myself a timetable and nominate a particular day to do things - it seems to work for the various chores I have ;-)
Do you feel like I do? If you do, what do you do about it?
(that's gone and done it .......... now I have Peter Frampton in my head ;-))
Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
