Good for the Soul
After the last few days of birthday baking and sewing I have been feeling a bit behind, tired and irritated.
I was happy with what I got done and while I wasn't flustered in doing it I did it at the neglect of washing and other household things. So I was not feeling ... good.
Special Birthday cake.
Then came today, I was irritable to say the least this morning. I was woken too early, before 5.
then as the morning progressed things changed. My cup changed to half full : )
I had a nice, funny, interesting chat to a Mum at School that I chat to often and only today realised I 'know', well 'know of' at least, through the blog world!
Then I went to the PO and sent of a RAK to a lovely online friend.
After that I went to the mall and visited the amazing fabric store, I had discovered last week. I walked around and soaked it up and looked at handbag handles and all sorts of lovely goodies I did not know existed. Not to mention the bolts and bolts of gorgeous quilting cottons. As I browsed I felt my tension melting away.
I bought a larger crochet hook while I was there.
Then I took a walk up to the fruit and Veg markets, its Sunny and crisp, I returned the cake tin we hired on the weekend, browsed and bought fruit and Veg, not rushed or pestered. The lady who processed my fruit and veg purchase was chatty and friendly.
I went and had a Cuppa in my fave organic shop and it smelled delicious in there and was quiet and cosy. I read the class lists from the fabric shop.
Came home unpacked and reheated some especially good home made pizza, I opened a couple of windows and put another load of washing in.
Now I'm not so worried about the sauce splashed on my kitchen splash back's and dirty floors.
Sometimes you just need to take a little break, and the Sun is a definite mood enhancer after so many rainy grey days. Messy Floor will still be waiting tomorrow. :)
