In a blue funk today, letting the worries of the world suck out the creative juices...or is it just not enough time in the sewing room makes me grumpy, add in that I need a walk and perhaps we will put it down to that.
I should remember to take my "30 plus" tablets more regularly, they have been great for the hormones and seem to be a good general "stabilizer"!! Sad when you haven't got time to take a tablet that actually makes you feel better!!
My sister is due here in a minute, staying the night as well, she and her babies should pull me out of the funk. bet Dh goes to bed early tonight, not because he doesn't like my siter, he loves her, he's watched her grow up from her teens and takes a very paternal interest in her well being. No, he is guaranteed to go to bed because we generally play board games when the kids are in bed and he can't cope with the competitive streak!! He has seen Pictionary games that would seemingly be being played for a million dollar purse, Scattergories games where people are being phoned at midnight to collaborate and answer and we wont even start on scrabble. At some point he sneaks away shaking his head.
He would never have coped in our house, when you throw in the other game loving brother, School holiday Monoploy games used to go over several days and often didn't allow participants to get out of their pj's!! so really our mild little games are quite sedate!
It is funny because we all really like each other, but when the games kick in, so does the competitiveness and the feeling that you are back at Mum and Dad's, then we all just resort to that persona. Anyone else have similar experiences with their family?
Post script a few hours later, this is me, just up at the computer because I have to Google to prove some words I beat my sister with at Scrambler...some things never change!!!
And finally, my scales!!
