Some of you who follow me elsewhere (Facebook / Instagram) will probably know that I am now properly working for myself.
It was funny this morning when my son (who woke up with a head cold) asked me if I was going in to work, I replied don't worry I will call myself and say my son is unwell and call in sick! We had a giggle.
I know they say laughter is so important and how true it is.
For the last few weeks I have been an emotional wreck if I were being honest, in fact it probably goes back months what with a couple of undiagnosed health conditions (on a waiting list) I have been feeling very sorry and scared for myself.
I could start crying over the silliest thing. My husband has been a great support, and yet I don't want to burden him and stress him out.
Don't get me wrong working for myself has been like a dream come true, but man can it be lonely. I would have considered myself very happy to be on my own, of course knowing that my kids and hubby will be home later in the day but you know what I mean, I love my garden it always needs work, love my "job", but recently I have missed not having another adult around in the morning. I was so used to going into work and straight away catching up with my two besties, now .....
So my neighbour (and friend) came in for tea yesterday and we had a good chat. Sure I was balling my eyes out on Monday with the neighbour across the road. Not because I want "friends" and to be fussed over, but more because of I guess a feeling of lowness, it's hard to explain. Could it be mild depression brought on by extreme stress and anxiety?
I still managed to get a couple of finishes this week though. Baby balls of course and a pram quilt and matching cushion for a christening.
So today is so far a good day. I have done a few chores and now I will settle down to make two baby balls for tomorrow.
Hope you are well and have a good day!
