Anti Climax!

I am feeling a large sense of anti climax after the great rush and activity of the last few days. Suddenly Christmas was upon us and there was still so much to do and then it was the actual day and lots was going on, including yesterday which was Boxing Day here in England. But today it is very cold, the sun is shining, the eastern side of the country is covered in snow and I am at a loss as to what to do. It is actually a holiday here today so everywhere has a holiday feel to it still. This could also be because Martin is at home today still being on holiday. At the moment he is under my car fixing my alternator which is very dear of him as it is freezing out there! But the mere fact that he is at home and could want feeding at any time means that I can't get stuck in to anything big. I would dearly love to go and organise my workroom and put all my new goodies into place but I wandered in and wandered out again after fifteen minutes not knowing where to start. I have all these lovely new drawing things but don't feel like drawing, painting or even sewing. To put it bluntly I am at a loss as to know what to do with myself. I feel limp and the only thing that really interests me at the moment is to read a book and dip into a box of chocolates every now and then. There are things I really could be doing but for the moment I am going to indulge myself and chill out. Later on I might play with some pictures for the Simple Still Life for this month. I think doing this will get me back into the creative mode and from then on it will all unfold as normal but for now its going to be books and chocolate. So very decadent this early in the afternoon!

  1. I can relate to this feeling as it seems to happen to me many years - post holiday slums. Enjoy the books and chocolate and I'm sure inspiration will strike again soon.
