Pheww! Glad that’s over

Firstly thanks so much for the blog birthday wishes and I'm apologising (again!) for being slow to post and announce winners! So randomly we have comments 2, 4, 7, 14, 19, 22  I'll drop you an email.

I really do seem to have lost my blogging/crafting mojo. Part of it, I think, has to do with changing jobs after 8 years in March this year and then spending the past 5 months being quite disappointed that I'd left a pretty secure, happy job and the new job being quite disappointing. No matter how much you say to yourself "no expectations", you have them. So. After a month of crying and feeling sorry for myself (thanks to my sweetheart Sondra for the support), I got back on the job search. Blah. Hate it. But fortunately, I've found something and I'm feeling positive about it.

The other distraction from blogging/crafting I think has been the training we've been doing with Tracy. Yes it's only 2 nights a week and cardio on a Saturday morning, but after training I'm no good to anyone, let alone a crochet hook or composing a blog post. I love the training. Yep, I said it. Love it. I have a LOOOONG way to go weight wise but I am definitely feeling the benefits to my fitness. I'm not as tired, I do have more energy and I'm finding that I spend less time thinking about how to avoid moving. For me, being fat = being tired = feeling very uncomfortable in my skin = minimising all of that by not moving so that I wasn't confronted by the fat and carrying around that weight is bloody hard work. That's just my experience, I know not all overweight people feel the same.

I do have a little craft to share but only an iPhone picture of my old lady hand with kitten scratches on showing one of my new rings that I'll have at Upmarket next weekend that I love, yep LOVE.

    Nic, Happy Belated blog b-day to you! Mine was 6 last month but I’ve been such a blog slacker I neglected to even post about it. Sigh. I’ve really lost my mojo too in the past year. A new job sucked me in completely and leaves me exhausted afterwards. Part of me thinks it may be time to give up my blog if I’m not posting regularly but I still feel like I just might be able to regain my mojo online. Good work on the training! I’m glad you are feeling great. hugs. Rachel

    I definitely know how you feel about having no mojo to do anything. I think the more you start to think about the worse you feel and less motivated you feel to actually do anything. I think thing is you just have to take each day as it comes. Good luck with getting back into the groove.

    Ohh there is nothing worse than losing your mojo!! Glad to hear you are emerging from the fog, oh how liberating that feels!! But please dont go away, I am a new follower and just love reading your blog, you inspire me!

    Yeah. Feed readers are amazing things. From my perspective its nice to hear from you when you’re ready. Back when I didn’t use a reader I used to sometimes feel a bit disappointed if I went to all that trouble of loading a blog and “oh darn nothing new”. But now I just check the reader and I’m always pleased to hear from you and see what you’re up to. No rush.
    Anyway, life is lumpy not linear.
