I'm notoriously terrible at resting. Self-care isn't something I prioritise very well and it's a real effort to just stop and take a break. I like to be efficient at all times but my body has given me no choice this week, which I suppose is a good thing - there is so much to process, it's been a crazy year.
People keep consoling me with the knowledge that it'll soon be time for festivities but I'm not there yet - not ready to even let it properly enter my thoughts. This weekend we popped over to the German Christmas Market in Leeds. I thought it would cheer me up and get me in the mood but the Saturday crowds were a bit much for me in this fragile state (although we did have a nice time and brought back some goodies).
As if all of that wasn't enough of a sign that I need to stop, my computer is behaving oddly which means I'm struggling even to read and comment on blogs let alone get anything properly done.
So, message received - I'm taking a break, doing things that make my heart sing and being very strict with my over-active creativity. One thing at a time, please.
Things may be a bit more quiet than usual on this page while I recuperate. I hope you don't mind.
