patsy cline

I had a bit of a breakdown on Friday evening. There was wailing and gnashing of teeth. There was a very good deal of despair.

I’d really like to make light of it, but I can’t bring myself to do so – because it was rather serious.

What brought this on, you may ask? I have absolutely no idea. All I know is that I was utterly consumed with unhappiness (stupid brain).

So on Saturday I decided to take matters in hand:

I have resolved to obtain a referral to Iman the Mental Health Professional – primarily to refocus on the sanity and mindfulness &etc.

I have resolved to make positive changes in my life – which mostly means more doing actual things and less (tres addictive) mindless internetting. To this end:

I crafted a tote from an old dress

I experimented with Kerry Apple cake muffins (tied with cute ribbons)

I experimented with blueberry muffins for my lovely husband (who adored them)

I commenced crocheting an afgahan for Mom to warm her while she snuggles on her couch.

I read books (other than silly needlecraft murders) on the Kindle.

I snuggled on the couch and watched Grand Designs.

I researched fish tanks (so that I might be calmed by lovely, wee fishies)

I culled the blogs in my google reader (no, not you!) to those people I truly want to read.

I did not look at twitter At All (I’m thinking of cutting out teh twitter entirely – but am giving it a one month ban).

I resolved to blog more and composed posts in my head.

And it all felt pretty marvellous.

Tonight I ripped the torn lining from a skirt (to make it a little more comfortable) which I can now barely fit into and repaired my favourite umbrella ($5 and still keep-on-keeping-on after 3 years).

And I am starting to feel a whole lot better.

  1. That's a very good plan – quite similar to my own efforts at same. As Nana would say: “pull yourself together”, and this is how you do it. And isn't it satisfying?!

  2. Thanks both!

    Yes Flashman, please do warn me off teh twitter, though I am very much missing the doings of you and smallstakes. Blog, dammit!

    Prudence, I really do think there is a good deal to be said for pulling up of socks and getting on with it. Less self-indulgence, Moar Doing Of Things. May your efforts be successful (but please, please, do blog of your endeavours!)
