Simple Woman's Daybook - March edition

Where its at!   <~~~ click here to see what I'm talking about.


Outside my window... its bloomin' freezing.  As it's after midnight here in the UK, its also very dark. The moon is waxing and is a little way over half full.  The skies are very clear.

I am thinking... that I should go to bed really and forget about blogging!  

I am thankful... that today is Wednesday, the hump of the week, and once we're over that then its down the rollercoaster towards the weekend.  I'm not wishing my life away, honestly!

In the a mountain of freshly washed and dried towels that I need to transport upstairs.

I am wearing... black.  Black everything.  It suits my mood! :D

I am creating... nothing right now, although I have many plans and perhaps another foray into canvas collage tomorrow. 

I am going... to be so in denial about getting up in the morning!

I am wondering... why I don't get many comments on my blog.  On average I get around 150 views each day but rarely more than a 3 or 4 comments.  I do wonder why. 

I am reading... a book about Art Journalling, a trashy chick-lit novel and another called Two Caravans.  I still haven't finished Rural Dreams Urban Realities (hmm thinking about it that might be the other way around!!).  I'm also reading several magazines  which I forgot I had and have been retrieved from under the bed.  Oh.  And random purchase, the Paul McKenna book about how he can give me a hypnotic gastric band. (!)

I am hoping... that my lovely dog takes the hint sometime soon that I really do not care for his chewy bone with the two soggy ends to be dropped onto the laptop keyboard seven million times each night. 

I am looking forward to...the weekend.  I'm going to take myself off to the NEC to stroke some craft stash.  Also looking forward to starting my online art journalling workshop on 1st April and to learning some new techniques.  And to a forthcoming two weeks of only having to work three days each week!

I am learning ... that things won't change unless I have faith in myself and do something about it.

Around the house... the usual chaos prevails.  

I am pondering... hmmm....  whether to continue blogging publicly or whether to just use this space as a more personal diary. 

A favorite quote for today... "
Nothing satisfies me more than knowing someone underestimates me. Except the moment they realize they did".

One of my favorite things... ummm right now?   Hot, buttered, thick sliced, granary toast! mmm!!

A few plans for the rest of the week: As above really - work, a bit of crafting and hopefully a trip out on Saturday.

A peek into my day...  Oops - there's no day left!  Tis mostly night!  Have a couple of silly pics instead! 


  1. Spring starts today, and I can hear a Blackbird singing (it's 6.21 am). Things are looking up!

  2. I think you just need some sunshine and warmth. I know I do. It has been long, grey winter and it doesn't seem to want to leave.

  3. I don't know either why only so few comment. I always reply to comments so that makes my number bigger than they actually are. Blogging should be about what you want when you want, it should never be a chore. I enjoy popping by whenever I see your posts.

  4. No idea why you get so few comments but if you find out let me know! Don't stop blogging. I'd miss you.

  5. I don't always comment - not enough time to comment on all the blogs I follow. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy them though

  6. Don't stop blogging Kim. I love to read your posts. They make me smile but, as I know you so well, I know where you're coming from too.

  7. Hello there! I haven't left a comment before, although I have been popping by for a few weeks now. Thank you for letting us peek into your world - I don't have a blog and feel a bit bad that I have nothing to share, but I would miss you if you decided to stop. 'Bye for now!

  8. Well, you know the problems I have had signing in and never been able to say owt so it's quite a miracle to me that I can do it now! My name is even showing in the 'comment as' box so something is recognising me! I imagine some others have problems logging in too.


Working from home

I've taken a precious day of annual leave today.  I've really struggled this week with feeling so yuk and I needed the restorative ...
