Demotivated

I know I’ve been a right miserable bugger lately and I promise that this will pass soon and I will be back to my normal … oh wait, no, that’s right, I’ve always been a miserable bugger :p

So what’s my moan about today? I just need to ramble on about how demotivated I am so that I can feel I’ve got it down somewhere, can kick myself up the arse and get on with things.

CAKE-FEST 2012 last weekend, and a last minute family visit this week, both mean that I’m behind in emails, blog posts, work etc. And yet here I am, having finally got poorly Oliver to go to sleep without being attached to a nipple for this first time all day, and am I doing something constructive? No, I’m sat here feeling sorry for myself and eating chocolate.

Like I said earlier this month, I think the realities of working from home are catching up with me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still really excited about this opportunity and have guaranteed work for the next 6 weeks with the potential for another big project to come after that; in fact I’m nearly in a position where I’m going to have to turn down work.

WAHMweb is a couple of articles off being ready for launch and my niche blogs are being suitably abandoned so plenty to get on with, but it’s hard going without the office banter and regular hot coffees. I talk to Oliver all day but have to say, the conversation is not up to much yet.

Oh well, at least I’ve got some interesting things to blog about coming up – received a nice package from Farmison yesterday, including some rare breed meat. Om nom nom.

    I see no reason why you shouldn’t be allowed to take some time off and stuff your face with chocolate so long as you promise to share it with me. Take some time for yourself. These past few months have been rather busy what with one thing or another and it’s bound to have taken it’s toll on you all. You know you only have to ask if you want me to come up and distract Izz for you or help with house cleaning or decorating etc. One thing you should also consider, is it possible you have a bit of postnatal depression? What with the difficulties of Ollie’s feeding problems and the frustration of trying to get health authority figures to accept that you might even know what you are talking about and getting them to take a proper look I’ve noticed that you are a lot more blue than usual. Might be an idea to have a chat with your Doc/health visitor and see what they think. Hormonal upheavals can make everything seem so hard to cope with and so easily sorted. (Even for supermummies like you)
