This Week


I'm sorry I disappeared this week.  This week has been busy, a little too busy, with book week celebrations, sustainable house presentations, after school practice, trying to get my head around a birthday and father's day next week and a very busy husband gave me a feeling of blah all week. I've tried not to wallow but it just didn't work.  I know if I get some craft done sometime this weekend I'm sure I can turn the blah feeling around.  How do you get over that feeling?  I would love to hear any suggestions you might have.

I did manage to make one card this week though and a bit of baking too, quick mix slice with lemon icing and these tasty little shortbread.
Earlier in the week I got some happy mail from Veronica at Mama Jots, a Donna Hay Magazine and a cupcake mix, which I know the girls will enjoy making, thank you.

Have a happy weekend my friends.  I hope to stop by and say hi soon

  1. To get rid of the feeling of Blah I get lost in a good book with a cup of tea to hand and some yummy chocolates. x

    Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Blah feeling solutions - chocolate, coffee, a shopping trip (without kids), a chat with friends. With work and uni my hubby is really busy too - my solution to dealing with that is expect to deal with everything on my own, that way if he is here to help it's a bonus. It's amazing how much further my energy stretches when I know I've got no help arriving through the door at 6pm. Hope next week is brighter for you.

  4. Sorry to hear you've had a 'blah' week, mine's been a bit that way too - I've had so much to do around the house but been so unmotivated and therefore feel as though I've achieved nothing this week. Hope your weekend is a good one x

  6. I had the same feeling this week. I caught a yukky cold but had to keep going. I'm sure you know that feeling. I managed to make a Cat In The Hat costume for my son for Book Week and I was pretty proud of it. He was really happy with it too!
    Hope you pick up soon.

  7. I know how you feel, I was feeling very blah mid week as well! A big 9+ hour sleep is the best cure for me but if there's no time for that then an hour or two with my head in a book escaping my own life also helps. Hope you got the time to do some crafting!

  8. The Donna Hay cupcakes are delish and guarenteed to cure the midweek blahs! I won a pack too & it brightened my whole week!
    Ps that shortbread looks divine! :)

  9. A cure for blah requires a shot of fresh air, a splash of self indulgence and just enough chocolate.
    (chocolate is a bit like morphine - the right dose is the one that does the job! - medically speaking)

  10. Yes I know what you mean between illness and everyday task the blah creeps in very easily here too! I am temped to say chocolate too but I think it is probably making it worse :)I think the more sugar we consume the more unwell we get...but it seems to be what we crave do we! :)lol
    I see you got over your blah after all good job! xx
