A few days ago Bren made me take everything out of the office/sewing room that we share, he rearranged the furniture, and then we put it all back again. All of a sudden I had space and organisation and order. I also had room to bring my lap top in from the kitchen table.
But instead of making me want to sew/blog more, its done quite the opposite.
The sewing is all wrong. I keep cutting out bits of fabrics and sewing them together only to realise that they don't work and aren't the look I was after.
And taking the blog thing out of the family shared space and putting it somewhere out of the way has separated it from my life somehow. It seems foreign and somehow I don't get it so much any more. One minute I am overloaded with things to talk about and the next I am sitting here with photos loaded onto a post not knowing how to talk about them.
All of a sudden it seems so separate from real life. It seems like I can't remember why I blog or what my blog voice sounds like.
I'm most probably over thinking things as per the usual. When I read my last post to Bren he said he couldn't believe I had so much of that stuff rattling around in my head. When I asked him what he had in his head he listed a bunch of irrigation equations, stuff we have to do for our organics inspection, wages, plans for the block across the road, gorse control, getting an intern, a thought about making a stand for his iPhone to take pics through the lens of his microscope, the egg deliveries and a zillion other farmy odds and ends.
Today I'm thinking about planning a day trip over the weekend, maybe getting a fringe cut today, Indi's best friend vs the gang issues, dinner tonight, knitting, Jazzy's ballet outfit for her concert, Pepper's baby talk, dying wool, a birthday prezzy for this evening, the state of this house, my shop, the possibility that I could have time alone with my farmer boy this afternoon, his Mum's birthday, the washing, how cold I am...I could go on and on...
So I'm going to sign off now and get on with it and see what happens next.
Have you ever forgotten why you blog? I wonder.
Have a happy and sunshiney weekend y'all. XX
Ps. oops, I almost forgot, I'm over at Thea's gorgeous blog today being the Friday Follower.
Pss. I'll tell you how we made the scarf in the picture above one day soon.
