“Ennui and lethargy are waging a war inside me.”

It’s rained an awful lot since the day I got married.  I know this because my pond, which was half empty on that very day, is now almost full.  And it’s a bloody big pond. 

It’s been a tad windy here over the weekend.  I know this not because the weatherman told me, nor because I’ve heard the non-existent gale-force wind that the weatherman promised would blow me away, but because the For Sale sign for the house behind us has almost fallen down on our car.  Humpf.

I have no oompf at the moment.  I’ve spent the last few days feeling increasingly moody and miserable.  I have no sense of direction and the slightest thing is messing with my head.  I wish that Christmas would get a move on.  But not to the extent that I want to be gliding down the aisles of Tesco, banging into people and glaring at them so that they’ll say sorry to me, and have Christmas songs blaring in my ears.  Damn Tesco.

I don’t want to talk to anyone and yet I’m stalking everyone. 

I’d like to settle down for dinner with Mathew Horne and Burn Gorman.  I’m feeling particularly broody.

Yay! Work tomorrow!

    ” I have no sense of direction and the slightest thing is messing with my head. ”   you stole that from my head didn’t you.

  2. Hmmm… a lot of that sort of apathy going around….Take care, dear! Work takes our minds off of our troubles – that is unless work is our trouble….(or should that be troubles… whatever…)Lovely background… I’m not sure I can appreciate it right now as I’ve had a bit of extremely liquored egg nog and it is swimming at the moment!No more egg nog for me! (well – the spiked type, anyway….) I’m off to bed! Work tomorrow for me, too!

  3. You are just experience the let down after all the hubbub of your wedding. It will get better. I am sure that the rain hasn’t helped but it will pass.

  4. We’re having our first rain of the season right now. I’ve been trying to recall the last time it rained here. It’s got to be at least 10 months ago. The trees, the streets, everything purified again. The rain encouraged me so much that I prayed for snow. It never will snow here, and I know this, but I prayed for it anyway. And then, I imagined what this dry desert city would be like if it woke up covered in a blanket of white.
    If only, if only…
    If I ever find my compass, I promise to give it to you. And, I like your background.

  5. The river in my parents’ garden actually flowed (for the first time in about 5 years, or so we believe).  Meanwhile, there are apparently two Jemima puddleducks squelching through the garden, happily in love.  We are not sure if it’s Mr & Mrs Duck, or Mr & Mr Drake… ~x~
