I have so many projects I want to get started on - sewing, knitting, crochet and other craft projects. Have I started any of them? NO!!! I haven't even had a go on my sewing machine. I taught myself the basic knitting stitch in the Autumn, but will have forgotten it again before I actually try to knit something! A friend bought me a starter crotchet set for Christmas - I had a brief (fairly unsuccessful) stab at it and haven't tried it again.
Some time ago I did a post with a list of jobs to do around the house. I made some headway early on, but haven't done a thing on it since. I keep justifying it with the thought that if it's going to be at least a year before I can move house, I might as well leave them until nearer the time or they'll no doubt need doing again.
I can't quite fathom why I'm procrastinating, but I certainly am! I'm still doing all the jobs that need doing - cleaning, washing, ironing, gardening etc BUT I can't seem to muster the enthusiasm needed for my projects. They'll wait I guess, but it's not my normal modus operandi, so I am a little perplexed as to what has caused my mojo to desert me.
I do wonder if it's a natural reaction, and therefore a passing phase, to me having given up work to be at home. I worked in a busy office with nine people and hundreds of needy kids coming through - it was noisy, stressful and very demanding. Now I have only the chickens to talk to a lot of the time and my life is quiet, undemanding and a lot less stressful. Perhaps I'm going through an inevitable period of adjustment?
No doubt the missing mojo will return at some point and meanwhile I'll try not to berate myself for having 'lost' it in the first place!!
And just for Jan at The Great Escape, here is a photo of the spiralised courgettes. My eldest daughter made this meal with her spiraliser, but she and I had eaten all of ours before I saw Jan's comment, so I had to snap second eldest's plate as she is a slower eater!! Sorry! The sauce was tomato based with added onions, peppers and some of the courgette core (the rest went to the chucks to scratch over). A very healthy and lightweight alternative to pasta and of course naturally gluten free and vegan! The spiraliser came from Amazon at a cost of about £25/£30. Cornish Chickpea also has examples of spiralising on her blog, which she photographed before digging in!
