Happy Monday!

I'd do anything to have a longer weekend.  We had nice time travelling up the coast, we stopped and had a snack at a beach side bar, then went to a friends farm to cuddle their new puppies (10 in total! so cute).
Last night we watched movies (Raising Arizona and Zelig), and then this morning I work up early in a wave of anxiety.  It took hours to get to sleep and it was really unpleasant -  you know that feeling when you feel like you've forgotten something really important or done something terrible and been found out.

Some of those feelings were based in reality ( worrying about overdue parking tickets and fines, registering the car, forgetting to sign a form at work, worrying about running out of money on our holiday to Sydney) and others were blown out of all proportion which I think is due to being partly dreaming and the anxiety culminating into something bigger than it needed to be.  I hate that feeling.  Recently my normal anxious disposition has gotten worse, particularly over things which usually don't concern me or matter that much ( I hyperventilated over buying hot rollers! ).

Things are looking better in the day light. I embrace relaxation and rational thought!

In other news,  wouldn't it be great to live on a houseboat?















Aren't they so beautiful? I feel more relaxed just looking at them.

  1. Love the houseboat idea! Btw I find that yoga soothes all of my anxieties. Really it's not a myth. Though I'm sure you know that already:) great blog! x LZ

  2. Anxious/sleepless nights are awful! Here's hoping you're able to get some quality shut-eye tonight. I love those houseboats - I think I'd move onto one in a heartbeat.

  3. Aw thanks guys! Emily I'm scared to do Yoga - I'm so inflexible I can't even touch my toes!! I feel like it would be impossible for me, but maybe there is hope? It's something I've always wanted to do but never had the guts to.

  7. Thanks love! ALAN ALDA FOREVER!!! I'm serious! I'm so glad you understand. I love Hawkeye. He was so cool, I love the way he just dipped an olive into his martini and then threw it away. He was so suave. And he hated the war. Ahh, swoon!
