staring at a screen

"This year I'm not gonna work as much. I will say no to projects that don't fill me with joy. I will have days off just to do stuff I want to do. I will create space in my life and have a lovely balanced existence. I will walk round on a cloud of ease and happiness all year"

*Sees a holiday she wants to book. Like a really expensive holiday.*

"Yes of course I can fit that in, no problem, leave it with me!"

Such is life.

It's a modern day miracle. The sun is actually out. In January. In Yorkshire. This gives a whole new meaning to the word SUNday.

Me now:

Me tonight...knowing that Monday is around the corner:

Dreaming of tropical destinations.
Living in a non tropical environment.
A severe clash of interests.

And the weather forecast for today, the 63rd of January is .... rain.

friday feels's Friday. A lie in is just around the corner. 
Unless you have small children.
Then a lie in is around 10 years away.
But I don't.

holiday bubble

I'm soooo not ready to re-join the rat race next week. It's been really lovely having some time off and space to do what I want to do. 
And nothing. I've done quite a bit of nothing.

I was so busy at the end of last year, basically churning out picture after picture, moving from one deadline to another without a break. I just turned into a drawing machine and found little joy in most of it.
I'd like to say I'll be better this year but I'm already booked up all through January and into February.
It's a tough one. I'm trying not to moan cos I know loads of people aren't busy and are worried about money...and I've been there myself many times and don't want to ever go back. I'm honestly grateful for having the work.
But surely there must be a happy medium somewhere?

I don't really do the whole New Year's Resolutions thing. But if I did it would be to focus on the work that brings me joy and makes me want to leap out of bed on a morning. 

And if it doesn't then it has to pay shit loads of money ha ha.

hello 2020

I won't bore you with the usual drivel about how time flies. We all know that it does. This year I plan to use mine wisely.
Hope you do too.
Love you loads x
