November funk, be gone

I don’t know if it’s a touch of SAD or what but I’ve been in a serious funk lately and it’s affecting just about everything. In fact, I’ve really struggled to blog recently because I sit down, look at the screen and just wonder what’s the point of everything. Then I go to bed, struggle to sleep, have weird dreams and wake up grumpy the next day. Cycle repeat.

But, as with any block, the only way is through it. I so enjoyed reading Chasing My Village Cathy’s collection of online inspiration (and was touched that she included me – actually read it over the weekend when I was feeling particularly rubbish about things) that I thought I’d share what’s gradually helping me feel a bit brighter lately.

Here we go…

Singing with a newly started local a capella group.

Focusing more on elimination communication. It’s been so, so good but I’m not ready to blog about it yet.

Seeing Talitha’s enthusiasm for art continue to grow and her drawing skills continue to develop.

Trying to make more of an effort to have date nights, even if they’re just in, watching Now TV.

So, what’s brightening up your November?
