Every have one of those moments where you look out the window and wonder where the day has gone?

It seems to be what is happening every day at the moment.  I look out the dining room window in the morning and think about what I have planned for the day, and in the evening I am letting down the blind wondering what I haven’t got achieved.

And so far my writing seems to be on the back burner.  Not where I want it to be, but things have been busy in the house with colds, bad backs, decisions to move house, son wanting to play his games on the laptop and having large disruptive tantrums when he is told no, very nearly getting nominated to run for the local council, cleaning house, packing house… things just happen and sometimes the things that I really want to do and probably really need to do in order to keep my sanity are put off until I have time.  And it seems that the evenings aren’t my time either lately.

I have started taking my writing notebook to bed with me.  I so desperately want to write something, even if it is only ideas, stories are born from ideas… just wish I had time to impregnate the idea with a storyline and mix a little plot into it as well.

One day…

The world is just passing me by…

    You’re not alone. I’ve been feeling this way a lot lately. Thought my vacation would help, but it really hasn’t. I hope we’re both past it soon!

      It is always nice to know that there are others out there suffering the same thing, it is a comfort.

      Here’s hoping the change in season will be enough to make things improve!

    I get this feeling every day of the weekend! I have such plans and even when I do accomplish a lot I am still left wishing for more time. I like that you’re taking your notebook to bed. I’m trying to remind myself that just 10 minutes is all I need if I’ll sit down and write! Good luck with the packing.

      Thanks Kerryn, packing is ticking along, as is the cleaning – I want to move out and know that I don’t have to come back and do anything else. The house wasn’t that tidy when we moved in, but it will be a well loved house by the time we leave!
