I don't know why but the last few days I've been feeling kind of blue......and not in a good, blue is my favourite colour kind of way. Besides, white and seafoam are my actual favourites ;O)

Today, I'm trying to get my shizz together and pick myself up and focus on everything I'm grateful for......after all I don't have anything to complain about and I really am lucky to be healthy and my hubby and kids are healthy and that is something I am sooo so grateful for above all else.

I have THE best neighbours ever and we love each other like family. And I have Michelle too......my other neighbour......tehehe. 

HeLLo MicheLLe BeLLe!


I've realised that I rearrange things and make things pretty (even more than usual) when I feel unsettled. For some reason it relaxes me because I really can't concentrate on anything else. I feel happy when I create a new energy in my space......



I plan on feeling a little more upbeat today......a lot of my thoughts influence how I feel so I'm starting out this morning with a great attitude......merry (not tipsy but in a Christmas kind of way)and bright(happy not necessarily intelligent)!


Another thing I'm grateful for is my Real Living subscription. I put myself to bed early last night to read it and fell asleep a few pages in ;O)
So today I'll be having a cup of tea and savouring it enormously because after a quick flick through it's looking as gorgeous as ever. The main focus is on natural Christmas decor and it's light on the tinsel which is exactly where I'm at this festive season!


I hope your day is Merry and Bright too!

  1. Such lovely groupings! I feel just the same about decorating. I become absorbed in it, and it's very calming.

  4. Me four! But having a stinking cold hasn't helped much ;) Totally get where you're coming from Tania, we all have those off days I think. What matters is that you are able to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get on with it as you are doing today. Enjoy your tea and mag gorgeous :)

  9. Hang in there! I go through that sometimes too and get mad at myself because I have nothing to complain about, but everyone is allowed to feel. This too shall pass!

  13. Hi Tania, hope you are having a better day today!

    I am usually a busy person who can't sit still lol, my head is buzzing full of projects and I can't wait to get stuck into them, usually all at once! But then occasionally I will have days where I cannot be bothered at all, and I used to get so frustrated with myself and wonder what was wrong with me (I like myself best when I am doing everything at full speed). Lately though I have learnt to just accept these down times for what they are, probably my body and mind telling me to take a break. I try not to feel guilty about a lack of motivation (doesn't always work but I try!) and I go with the flow, have some lazy days then my motivation comes back as quick as it left.

    Now, I NEED that Real Living mag...best pop to Woollies after school!

    xx Karen
