Today is shaping up to be a thoroughly rotten day. I am fed up of being stuck here in my little valley, idyllic though it is and I know that I should just suck it up and get on with it but I'm feeling so fed up I just can't seem to motivate myself. There is a chance that a friend of a friend has a little run-around car for sale, which I was supposed to going to have a look at today, but the friend, who was also my lift, has just disappeared for the weekend without telling me so I don't know what's happening about viewing the car. I am also mindful of the fact that if I decide to go ahead and buy the car, I have to tax it and insure it, both of which I can't do over the weekend so, things are a little tight time-wise for getting things done. Add to this the constant whine of a chainsaw and the screech of a wood chipper all day yesterday and since 9am this morning, probably for the rest of today and you can understand my frustration.
See, I am totally feeling sorry for myself and really I need to snap out of it!
I tried to do some hexie stitching outside in the sunshine but the racket from the chain saw and wood chipper was not conducive to the creative process so after 3 hexies, I gave up and came back inside to slump on the sofa, watch crappy day-time tv and sulk!
Even this glorious rose, which appeared overnight, didn't help.
