Busy Doing Nothing

Busy Doing Nothing.

I have been sooooo sleepy lately with absolutely nothing to blog about…yep gals, my life has been very boring indeedy! I havn’t even bought plants for the garden…I have just let them all grow as wild as they like this year, with no pruning…they actually look quite beautiful and free..as if to say, thanks Happy for letting us be wild! lol!

This is where I have been sitting most of the time…trying to make sense of my little ‘blip’…my therapy has been my jewellery making…and when I have not been doing the household chores…I have been sleeping! perhaps I am having a growing spurt! hehehe!

I think I need new glasses, as I am getting lots of migraines lately…it will be expensive if I do! as I have about 10 different pairs, as once I found out I was 2.50 I bought the ready specs everywhere I shopped…but whenever I need them I can never find a pair! ridiculous isn’t it!

I have friends keep asking me out for lunch but I can’t be bothered to go! I can’t seem to sleep at night, but get the bestest sleeps in the day!..I try to write a blog, but the words are not there….I can’t think of anything that would be of interest to you…I have become a hermit in my own home…but I feel safe here, safe warm and cosy.

I don’t know how long it will last…it has been creeping up on me slowly but surely, I suppose the insomnia is not helping…and my terrible memory…like forgetting where I put my glasses 300 times a day!Is anyone else having a Blip..!  I used to think blogging was good therapy…but for now I seem to be stuck for things to write about…Life can be SH*T at times and I think this might be my SH*T time!

Still onwards and upwards as my old Nanny Hilda would say…lets put a brave face on it 🙂  Can you please help me out here and tell me what you would like me to write about, bearing in mind I have not got the dresser in instead of the teak cabinet yet and I havn’t finished the caravan make-over either!! Yep! its that bad! lol!

Help me out here gals 🙂

    You always do a wonderful job. You inspire.We've all been there. Here in the States the whole country seems at sorts. What I love about your blog is that you seem just like the friendly girl next door. Get some rest. Rest does wonders. Refill your emotional bank. We all have to do it every now and then. BIG hug.

    Your blog is wonderful and I love taking the time to read it. Your gardens are delicious. I understand what you're going through … and you need to look after yourself.

    aww poor you Happs, I know just how you feel and it's pants, I read Anne's comment and it could have been me writing it as i'm in a blip too.It really is rubbish but in a strange round-about way nice to know that there are other people feeling a bit crappy too.I have just realised I only have 89p in my bank to last the next 2 weeks so Ive taken to the best medicine in the world to avoid having to take the proper stuff that comes from the doc…chocolate…yep life can be utterly sh*t sometimes but it will pass and you'll think did I really feel that low? you could write an article about dog poo and we'd all still love you for it! xx

    We all go through it! It's the change of seasons. Kind of gets you down. Summer waning away. Shorter days and longer nights. Take a break and come back renewed. Stay in your jammies all day long and do absolutely nothing. Write when you feel better. We will still be here! xx

    Go see your GP Happy. Sounds a bit like some pharmacology might be in order. And I don't mean the type you grow in the wild garden LOL!

    OK now, being Happy all the time is not easy.. It looks like you need a break. Any chances of a holiday? Even a short one? Even if not in any case I would turn off the blog, turn off the crafting, turn off the pc itself for a whole week and go out and enjoy the final warm days of summer. Lie around in the garden, pamper yourself a little and make yourself go out! Window shopping, museum going, movies,cosmetics and parfume trying, whatever normally relaxes you(no thrifting though:))I bet you will be shiny as brand new and back to being all your beautiful Happy self again. I hope also the weather permits to this plan as well:) But it shouldn't stop you:) See you in a week!Ebru

    My dear girl! Is it the menopause methinks?I have been in a creative vacuum/coma for some time now.I am almost fifty three and for the past two years have been struggling daily with the fact that I feel like I'm disappearing.Small tasks are like scalinga mountain,I am the procrastinor extrodinaire.I can't be bothered and would happily stay in my pjs and never go out again-reeling with subliminal depression and feeling so bad about feeling like this.You sound depressed,sweetie.Hormones are devilish things and I'm afraid nobody really talks about the menopause and how hard becoming middle aged actually is both mentally and physically.Why dont you write about the shitty stuff.Life is about 'falling in the valleys so we can appreciate the mountains'.I thnk sometimes we feel we have to blog like Pollyanna when maybe we should tell it like it is.I have not been able to blog for almost the whole summer as I feel so low.It's only because I have to teach in a weeks time that I will have to get dressed.Feeling your pain.Much love Anne xxx

    Im sure you will be out of your blip before you know it, im sure creative arty people all suffer from these, down times are usually followed by highs, new energy and new creative ideas!. I would love to see your fave ten items perhaps your top ten bargains and those dream items that even you have been unable to find yet. x

    Hi Happy, I am sorry to hear you are having a bit of a sh*t time. I know the feeling, I get it every year. Mine starts when the harvest starts to come in. My energy starts to dip and things start to get harder. I think you should be kind to yourself and not expect too much from yourself and rest and recharge and the rest will follow. bee x

    If you are sleeping well enough when you do sleep…tell us about your dreams? Those usually provide crazy,fun,insights as to some of what may be the issues. Or at least write them down for yourself…Otherwise, don't even worry about words for now. Try just photographs or focus on what you have been making or what is inspiring you to make the pieces you are making…just a thought.Or how about just totally taking a blog-o-holiday…love you Happy!

    I'm thinking, with a beautiful home like that….why would you want to leave it?!I love looking at all the bits in your home, the red bench is great…I love red so much.Perhaps you just need a little break, to sip tea, eat cake, read a book or three….I always love your blog…Nattie x

    Cripes Happy! Me thinks the winter blues are setting in, im sitting here looking out of my study window to lashings of rain and wind and im thinking – what a shit day! I can always retreat into my art (which is very likely today) so that will keep me busy. Ever tried putting your experiences down on paper, as a short funny story?? All about your life, your business, your holivan, it can be very good for the soul, and great fun because once you start you cant stop! Try itxxxxx

    Ah dear Happy sometimes we must retrench as Miss Austen would tell us. I too am feeling time slow to a crawl and desperate for rest at home. Makes sense to me when I listen to any of the news lately. At home we are cozy and safe. Perhaps we are incubating something amazing, as you say a growth spurt, poised to leap into something new and wonderful. I say, listen to your happy heart and go with the flow. Write about your dreams or just nap. We will be here when you wake.

    Take a break …God will see to the garden and the flowers while you take some time off for your brain to figure it all out. I think you should embrace your insomnia…You could do blogging and crafting at night…Who knows …maybe it will pass
