Bad habits

Since I started my new job and the weather took a turn for the even worse, more wind, more rain, power cut last night, I have been slowly losing momentum. The laundry is piling up, I haven't taken any photos for ages, the dinners are getting a bit lazy, when the husband was away last weekend I survived by eating custard creams! I just feel like life is unravelling around me at the moment. Anyway Dean is away again until Saturday so I will try to sort out the house and get my eating habits back on track. I feel a vegetable fest fast approaching. But I must confess to Heather, Mollie and Charlie I have not yet sent out your banners but I will do so on monday. Sorry about my sombre tone. Tomorrow will be better.

Sorry you're feeling so blah. You've probably seen this blog already, but just in case you haven't - 101 cookbooks has lots of lovely, healthy-but-tasty recipes focusing particularly on fresh veg. Hope you feel better soon!

Totally know where you're coming from with the 'sombre tone'... I'm normally the one spreading the cheer but this week, all I've wanted to do is hide under the duvet! :( It's because it's officially winter months now and we haven't had much sunshine. It'll pass - chin up! (At least that's what I keep telling myself)

I go through waves like that too - sometimes I'm full of energy and the house is ordered/ kids clean and well fed etc etc, and other times I eat rubbish and am lazy. I think the weather plays a huge part too. Hope you feel a bit more chipper tomorrow.

thanks for your kind words.

Gstar, My nana had a giant button tin and when my sister and I were kids we used them as currency ; )

Katherine thanks for the tip, I'll pop over to find a yummy recipe.

even though ruts don't feel ok, or even very good, the good news is there's always the other side of a rut. i think you can already see it, sensing the vegetables in your future. i think that's key, don't you? seeing what lies beyond, seeing that hope. :)

It always takes time settling in to a new job and a change of routine, hope you get back on track soon.

Here it´s all wet and windy too - like in November! One REALLY has to be a light spirit to deal with it without turning blue!

Sometimes it helps me to pick a spring craft magazine and just dream away for half an hour at the sofa...

Aahhh... sweet!! My mum and dad were a seamstress and tailor by trade so I used to get to play with buttons for currency too! Me and my sister used to sell scrap fabric to each other in our make believe shop and I used to love sewing buttons randomly on fabric. Oh the days... :)

Was a bit of a shock to see your button comment to be honest. Me and two of my girly friends use it to communcicate to each other and organise creative get togethers. It's not a real blog so your comment threw me slightly I didn't think anyone could see it. All good though.

thank you ihanne, I have been looking through my saved interior pictures and planning the seasonal gifts I will make.

Gstar, wondered why I couldn't comment there! : )
