What a crock! Of course it is not all about me, me, me. We all have equal share of this world, and if one of us doesn't feel up to par and wants to stop playing for a day (or two) then this world will not stop. It will keep on turning and everyone will keep on getting on with their lives. Which is a good thing. And it keeps things in prospective.
So, I have decided to take your kindly given advice and step off the merry-go-round today. Enough of pushing myself and feeling grumpy because of it. In the scheme of things one day is not so important. And if a Christmas present is late, it is still sent with love and - hopefully - received with love as well. Again, the world will not stop. If I feel grotty and go back to bed and stay there most of the day I will benefit from the rest. Everyone else will benefit from the silence!
Thank you for all the kind comments. I am not ill. Really, I don't think so. And I apologise for bringing my grump into this space. Right, that's it for today then, I'm off to bed. I leave you with this sage piece of advice - Do not baste a quilt when you are in a mood like this. You will only have to redo it. I am living proof because the backing of said basted quilt has more wrinkles than I do! Not the look I wanted for the quilt or me.
Hope you get your mojo back soon! Laughed at the line about wrinkles...ReplyDelete
Get yourself a nice cup of tea and snuggle down in bed. I would also suggest getting a cat... they are good in this situation.ReplyDelete
Take yourself to bed and chill for the day! XReplyDelete
Ah finally! please write when you are feeling better!ReplyDelete
A cup of tea and a snuggle in bed sounds good. I think you might need a wee chocolate biscuit too. Hope you feel better soon xReplyDelete
My dear, take a break. You were working like mad on the swap and two beautiful quilts. You know you're brilliant and that this is supposed to be fun. Take the advice above, change into PJS, make tea and pig out on a few biscuits. You'll be back and ready to go in no time! xxReplyDelete
LOL, happy grumping! I think we all need that every now and again. I'd grump with that Galaxy too, and perhaps some crappy Christmas films on the telly... :oDReplyDelete
I can't see any wrinkles in that cheeky face!! Enjoy your duvet day, you deserve it! Hugs, JxoReplyDelete
Good plan! I hope you feel better with a day or two or more of rest.ReplyDelete
LOL..the comments are all so cute. Have a wonderful restful day...then come back and enjoy your work dear...it is not worth the stress; believe me. And chocolate sound like a great idea....haha...if you could share; that would be nice.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your day of rest - a computer free day is always a good idea every now and again and a day in bed will do you the power of good! Please don't reply to this comment! Take care xxReplyDelete
two blogs I read had the exact same title, but totally different topics. Weird, huh?ReplyDelete
You take a break, rest and come back your normal, sweet self. Overdoing can make anyone grumpy.
hope you have had a lovely day chilling and snoozingReplyDelete
Grump away! :) See you on the flip side :) Wrinkle free!ReplyDelete
Yep - world still turning. Take care of yourself sweetie!ReplyDelete
Pissing myself laughing at the wrinkle comment Susan. Funny! I've been there too - I basted one quilt three times and still didnt get it 100% right !ReplyDelete
Have a fun time relaxing and chilling out.
I think you need a bit of a rest - a day on the sofa with a tin of biscuits and a nice easy read! Look after yourself.ReplyDelete
Hope you have had a relaxing and self-indulgent day - you deserve it!ReplyDelete
It's supposed to be a hobby for fun - if it isn't then it's time to take a little break and get better! Have a hot toddy Susan - doesn't do anything but maybe make you feel better especially if made by someone else!ReplyDelete
I hope you get the rest and rejuvenation that you deserve.ReplyDelete
enjoy your 'me' time - it's a completely necessary part of being a wife, mother, cleaner, bottle washer, cook, nurse, swap mama, crafter.........you get the drift.ReplyDelete
Hang in there Susan - I tried to pin baste my "Plus" quilt the other day and pinned myself more than the quilt!!ReplyDelete
Aw sweetie, mental exhaustion IS being ill. just because you can breathe without pain and walk without a limp, doesn't mean it is any less valid as illness. Take the break. Relax all day, eat nice things, watch trashy tv, read a magazine, have a bubble bath. Just unwind a bit and you will feel much better. Your mind gets frazzled as much as your body does, if you don't look after it.ReplyDelete
Just read this Susan as we've had problems with our computer. Hope you have your feet up and are taking it nice and easy. Sending hugs!ReplyDelete
