April 2013

So another month as gone...... do you remember at the beginning of the year I said I was going to slow down & not let the months slip away?

Well it hasn't worked!! I feel once again this year is slipping through my fingers.

April was a funny old month...... teaching crochet at Make, Do and Mend, drinking rather too much, seeing The Wonderstuff, seeing The Beat, watching Jean roll & making tea cosies.

It ended on a bad note...... as you all know I've been struggling with work for some time now & last week I hit an all time low. 
I went to the doctors & I've been signed off with stress..... I think enough is enough!
I've been told not to make any decesions at all but just chill out & do what I want to do.
So far this week I've done nothing!

I need to focus on getting myself together for the next few weeks...... I have lots to make for Crikey so I need to have an action plan.

How does it work if you work from home? 
I need routine & structure otherwise I'm Mrs Lazy!!!

Back soon to do my April book review.


  1. I am glad the doctor has signed you off. Been there with my husband so I do know what you are going through - sort of. Its not nice and you don't need it.
    Is it the Crickey at Killerton? If so I'll come and say hello!

  2. Hope the time off is helping, it was definitely the right thing to do.

    I know what you mean about time slipping away - I can't believe that we are in May already.

    I find lists are the only thing that keeps me going - I write out all that I need to do and then just plough on through til it's done - it can be really hard to motivate yourself when you are at home all day, and just way too easy to procrastinate or get side tracked - single minded dedication and focus on each job until it's complete. Can't say as I succeed all the time, or even much of it, but it does feel good when I do!

  3. I LOVE the tea cosies!! I have a very similar pattern, are they hard to make? I keep meaning to make a start on one but always find a reason not to! :-)
