Since last I wrote I have mostly been being in hiding, partly I think because I’ve been a little under the weather with some kind of ‘virus’ that I can’t seem to shake off for once and for all. The less said about that the better.
I’ve also been feeling quite far away from myself which is just one of those feelings that seems to come along every once in a while. I’ve gotten used to my feelings and I’ve learned to rub along with them without losing myself but I know I have to be careful when I start feeling far away. Historically, I’ve had trouble staying ‘grounded’ and ‘attached’ and I’ve learned the importance of working hard to keep hold of myself if my brain decides it wants to fly away. If anyone needs me in the immediate future, I guess I’ll be working hard to keep hold of myself……
Apart from feeling unwell and far away, life here in WeeGee Land is still rumbling along nicely enough. My latest escapades include pickling ALL OF THE THINGS, reading the fantastic Constance Spry cookery book, going a bit leftfield with my box sets and watching Midsomer Murders from beginning to end, and buying a fuck-tonne of Tupperware, for reasons best known to (if not fully understood by) myself. Standard.
Meanwhile in other news I have decided that I’m going to start keeping a diary. I’ve done a lot of journaling in my time, but I really quite fancy doing the whole ‘Dear Diary’ thing again. So I’ve started one. In September, because if I wait until January I’ll only have forgotten about the idea and who says diaries have to start in January anyway? Nothing else to report today save that I wanted my diary to be ‘old skool’ and it ended up looking like this:
I hope you’re all rare and sparkly and unicorn like. I thought I’d take the liberty of ending with a song. When I was younger I thought it was THE most beautiful song in the world, and I don’t exactly disagree now I’m old(er). I’ve probably shared it before, but some things just keep on coming back to you, don’t they?
That’s it from me.
Love you all lots like Jelly tots,

Mid summer murders is awesome! I love your choice in tv. Hope keeping the diary goes well. ❤ xx
It is, isn’t it?! I’m doing every single episode from start to finish, in order at the moment. Perfect TV 🙂
That’s a lot, considering there is about 10 seasons I think, enjoy xxx
Yes – quite an undertaking!
Keeping oneself grounded is a good thing. Let me know if you figure out how to do it, I’m in need of some pointers. 😉 The diary is amazing looking. If I could actually read my own damn handwriting I’d consider starting one myself.
Yeah….. I’m not doing such a great job at the moment. But I’m still trying and that’s what counts, right?
I’m sorry you have been feeling unwell, but I love, love LOVE the diary decor. (I know, you are so surprised, right?) 😀
