A little catch up

I can't believe it's been so long since I last blogged! Unfortunately I don't have an exciting excuse for my absence either, I wish I could say I've been globetrotting around the world or been swept off my feet by a handsome stranger but the reality is that work has taken over my life. However I'm slowly reclaiming it back because if I don't, I think I'll totally lose the plot. Over the past couple of weeks I've managed to lock myself out of my brother's house (with the oven on!) and had to ask their neighbours if I could jump over their fence to get back in, I  totally convinced myself I had lost my purse and had to frantically phone Tesco to see if I had left it at the self service checkout before finding it under my bed 24 hours later and I nearly set the kitchen alight after leaving a plastic pot of cream on the hot hob. I topped all this off last Sunday when I was visiting the Tower of London by dropping my camera and it sounds a bit silly now, but at the time I was distraught. I have a horrible tendency to sometimes catastophise (not sure if that's even a word, but if it's not it should be) things and get stuck in a downward spiral of negative thinking. Add in my single status (I won't tell you for how many years), my less than ideal living situation and never ending search for somewhere to buy and well, please promise me you won't laugh at this (well not too much anyway) but at one point I was totally convinced that I had been cursed.

Anyway you'll be glad to know that I've realised this is ridiculous, I've picked myself up, dusted myself off, reminded myself that no-one has died and that my camera is replaceable. I've decided to a be bit kinder to myself and slow down because life is too short and you know what, so far this week, so good. I know none of these events in the scheme of things are massively stressful but I might even put together some thoughts in another post on what has helped me feel better. In the meantime I wish everyone a lovely Wednesday!
