above – my happy little Westie Max 19th January 2002 – 19th August 2016
I have just come in from the garden and thought I had better catch up with you all! Isn’t time flying this Autumn and here we are in November waiting for winter to begin and after last year with all the snow and everything I thought I had better get my garden all prepped for what might be one of the coldest winters on record here in blighty! (and probably the world!)
I absolutely can’t stand Autumn and Winter…I feel so depressed with the lack of light and all and as I am a night bird, I love the long days so that I can fit everythng into my day…so when it comes to Autumn and especially winter…well that’s when I am all out of sorts!
…and today I especially feel depressed, I thought going out into the garden would change my mood, as it often does, but no! this mood has definitely got a hold of me and I just can’t shake it off!
I went out there and mulched all my plants…I started another compost heap and raked up all the leaves that I had already raked up the day before! Then I pulled down the cover of my very fragile (nailed to the wall just incase it blows away) plastic greenhouse…only to realise why they sell replacement covers! IT SPLIT! In two places and at that point I realised it had a few more holes in it already DAMN!
So armed with the knowledge that I haven’t got any room in the Harris’s family budget for a new one (my dream greenhouse) I decided to patch up mine, with garden bark used bags and the like…so it now looks like a patchwork greenhouse and rather bespoke if you ask me hahaha…at least I am not throwing the plastic bags away…as why you can’t recycle that type of plastic bag these days is beyond me!
I would of taken some pictures, but as I am writing this it has gotten dark! GRRR! so I can’t show you any at the moment…my brain is just not built for early dark nights!
My weeks are filled up with so many things to do…I have certain days that I go and see my Mum…but I do quite a lot for her and often when I don’t see her, all I want to do is have a chill day…but then I feel so guilty if I do nothing! like yesterday for example, I was going to do so much…Ironing, Housework, Mow the Lawn…But I just couldn’t be bothered to do any of it…and I have no-one to help me with these things, which really gets me down!I used to love Blogging and these days I am always so busy that I just don’t seem to get the time to blog, let alone make anything crafty! I have always been a procrastinator and perhaps that is my main fault, but this week I just feel like I definitely have The Winter Blues!
Sorry about that little grumble but…
Do you feel the same?
What do you do to beat the winter blues?Tell me your story…
Love Happy x
