Thanks for popping in! Saturday 16th January already! 2021 is on the wing, and Old Man Time is certainly moving fast again! The older I get, the faster he seems to move! Is it just me, or are we speeding again? Despite all my best intentions to calm it Kermit and travel gently through the new year, we’re already halfway through January and the pace of life is absurd, given I’m not even leaving the house!!
Which just goes to show. It’s me. Nobody else. I drive the bus and I decide the speed and the destination.
Been thinking a lot about it today, whilst trying to get a handle on the dirty laundry, which has been piling up in the spare bedroom for weeks. And the only reason I ventured in there today is because nothing left in the wardrobe fits me anymore!! Hahaha . Anyway, I digress. What was I thinking about, whilst making loads of piles of different coloured clothes all over the bedroom floor? Why Wurka and Hollick have moved in again! Since Covid they’ve been hanging around like a bad smell really. They lurk. I think a lot of it has to do with worrying about the business again. There’s nothing like a global pandemic and nationwide lockdown Numero tres to get those two pesky gits fired up again.
The only way to evict them is to ignore them and walk away from worrying work for a day. Washing machine is in full swing, sock drawers are perfectly rearranged, and bathrooms are sparkling. It’s the only way for me. I have to get some order in my life, and housework is it today.
I know, I know. What about pottery? I hear you say! Nope. It did cross my mind, but when I realised there were NO old clean jeans and jumpers (which still fit me) to get dirty, I knew it was time to be a domestic goddess for a day!! Doesn’t happen often! I’ve used it as a total mindful fix today.
If you’re looking for a mindful fix, but ironing doesn’t rock your boat, then why not head on over to our Claritymatters blog today? Our dear friend Hazel Edwards has done a smashing step by step tutorial for Beginners using the Groovi Starter Kit. This may just be the point you have been waiting for to dive in and have a go at parchment art. Click here to investigate….
In the meantime, I’m off to carry on listening to my latest audio book, Daphne Du Maurier, Frenchman’s Creek. It’s a real cliff hanger!!
That’s it, isn’t it. Distraction. Escape. And if I ignore them completely, Wurka and Hollick just wither and fade away. For a day at least.
Love and hugs
PS the pic here was made using a cloud mask. We’ve been looking at mask this week, so I thought I’d dig this example out….
