I’m awake! Not just awake from a poor night’s sleep but awake emotionally too. I have spent the last few weeks feeling pretty sluggish – not that anyone would know as I am still running three times a week, meeting up with friends, working a day or two each week, looking after my youngest g-daughter once a week, picking up two of the other g.children from school once or twice a week, plus I’ve been getting the garden back into shape, and, well, the list goes on. But deep inside I have felt sluggish and low which may have resulted in me being grumpy…
Some of my emotional sluggish-ness is due to family worries – and the death of yet another friend just ten days ago – and personal stuff (I was ‘trolled’ but the police dealt with that quickly so I feel I have nipped it in the bud).
Anyway, today I woke up, counted down the days till we set off on a month’s adventuring through France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania (home of the rag-a-tag-gypsies of my childhood dreams) and finally Bulgaria – where we will spend time with our lovely son, wife and little one before setting off home again – and I got my mojo back! Yay!
Hence, I am feeling wide awake – mentally and physically – and will spend today running round like the lunatic I am; packing the caravan is always exciting and I am determined to get to the garden centre to pick up some cobblestones for my plant pots, I will then meet my lovely friend M for coffee, have my nails done, collect Katie from school, pop into my mum’s, go to Pilates and do whatever else life throws at me!
Busily bonkers? Yes, I guess I am but to me…it’s Just this Girl’s Thing!
