I have been feeling a bit lost, a bit aimless, over the last few weeks.
I would have gone back to work in March if we hadn’t moved to the States.
I am so used to being super busy, I am struggling a little. I like to feel productive and organised – to deliver.
As I write ‘My week that was’ posts, I know that I am busy – it’s a constant whirl of activity.
But it is without anything ‘concrete’ to show for it at the end of the day. I have a list of stuff that I want/need to do, but the more aimless I feel, the less productive I become!
I know that happy children, a (reasonably!) tidy house, clean clothes for all, fresh food on the table and wonderful memories of fun activities is not nothing, but how can I structure my day to feel less whirlwind of randomness and more Sara delivers…?
And, most importantly, how can I find (or rediscover) ‘me’ in the midst of all of this domestic activity?
When I saw the I am me linky, created by Rachael over at Three Years & Home, it was just the perfect post. It has however taken me about a month to publish my own and link up… What was that I was saying about productivity :)
I am: a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a niece, an auntie, a cousin, a friend, a vegetarian.
I am sometimes: happy, tired, grumpy, thoughtful, selfish, helpful, controlling, organised, critical, empathic, perceptive, lonely, sad, short tempered, irrational, peaceful, artistic, creative, funny, sarcastic, irritating, confident, self-conscious, shy, a mass of contradictions.
I like: my children, my husband, laughter, making lists, pink fizz, sci-fi, fantasy novels, reading, the smell of books, cake, my e-reader, compliments, watching TV, running, chocolate, memory boxes, drawing and painting, shopping, galleries, silence, being alone, tea, chilled white wine, wit, daffodils, talking, having an audience, parties, being good at my job, creating, shoes, baths, diet coke, the sound of the sea, having a manicure, meeting new people, writing my blog, family time, me time.
I dislike: snow, being cold, animal cruelty, rudeness, noise, pedants, dishonesty, meanness, ironing, changing duvet covers, anything that upsets my children, regrets, unfairness, inequality, bullying, confrontation, heights, wasps, massages, flying.
