Exhaustion


I've been sitting at my laptop screen for a few minutes now. I've been sitting here with heartburn and wondering how I've got that from eating Cottage Pie for lunch - Random!

Sometimes there's a post you want to write, but don't feel you need to, but you do and this is one of them. I've been getting myself organised this week; I've been writing down posts and vlogs for me to write and record over the course of the week - even next! And I'll do them, because I'm looking forward to feeling the 'Friday feeling' once I've completed my to-do list ready for the weekend to start.. I'm SO looking forward to it and I'm not sure why. I think it's because I so desperately need, what I feel is a break.
I honestly don't know what's wrong with me at the moment but I feel utterly exhausted all the time and simple tasks seem like way too much hard work. Washing up? Ugh. Walking up the stairs to fetch a pair of socks? Nah thanks, but I'll happily go up to bed. I've been feeling snappy and easily irritated; a general 'got out the wrong side of the bed' this week; resulting in picking at naughty foods. (that doesn't help either!)

I think I've just been feeling ill and the demands of young children doesn't help when you feel like there isn't enough sleep in the world that could revive you. It's been a bit of a sluggish week as we're hitting another phase of 'do everything we know we're not supposed to do' at the moment which is frustrating (probably more so because I'm not physically in the mood), but yes, attitude and pushing boundaries have returned.. I'm hoping with the weekend we'll be fairly busy so we can forget and move on from that.

As with saying that, with his attitude it has become a bit linked with tiredness as Freddie's popped to bed for afternoon naps this week also, maybe he's not in the best minds either? And together it's fireworks haha!

We've got our outside chairs and tables arriving this afternoon and hopefully a swap around in the bedroom tomorrow - I think this will change mind sets all around :) I'm feeling better just by thinking about it! I hate that feeling rubbish feeling, it makes me grumpy and annoyed that I'm missing the good stuff, so I'm looking forward to having the weekend with my lads, feeling all me again!

  1. It's hard to get out of this mood once you're in it, isn't it? And tiredness and feeling run down just compounds it. I do hope the weekend brings you the break and relief that you're hoping for and that next week is a better one. Thank you for joining in and sharing with #WotW

    1. Yeah definitely, I think that's what it is, as soon as you start feeling it, it changes everything!

  2. I get how you feel ... tiredness brings out all sorts of interesting emotions in me (!) we're all exhausted in our house too at the mo. My husband said to me this morning 'I could do with another night's sleep. Like, two in a row. Then that might be enough.' Which sums it up really. Hope you feel more rested soon x

  4. Feeling tired just makes everything seem so much more difficult, and it makes motivating yourself so very much harder doesn't it?!
    I hope spending time outside with your new chairs helps - fresh air can work wonders!
    Hope next week is slightly better for you

  5. Feeling sluggish is not nice. I sometimes feel this but for a diff reason. When I am sad I cant seem to motivate myself to move. It is so nice that you are starting to plan what to do next. That really lifts up one's spirit =) #wotw
