Full circle

I've been finding that, recently, getting home from an evening and managing to actually get stuff done has proved very difficult. I don't know if it's the weather or the season, but I've really been struggling to find motivation. I come home from work and I see the flat is a mess and I just want to hibernate in bed! I am also finding motivation in the kitchen rather difficult. I love cooking, but I don't feel inspired by dinner. I've got an awesome baking blog post coming up on the blog tomorrow, but when it comes to savoury meals I'm in a rut. Do you guys have any links or recipes that are quick and easy for dinners in the week?

One of the biggest chores is that old favourite of washing up. We have a relatively small kitchen and a lot of the time it is in the biggest mess - the washing up dominates the place as everything gets left on the side until the mountainous pile of cutlery and dinnerware is piled in to the sink. I've left this thought on my blog many times before, but I so wish we could fit a dishwasher in our little flat. I guess it's a sign that I'm a grown up now I compare dishwashers and dream of the day I own one! Perhaps it's just plain laziness. Either way, I'm looking for the best dishwasher and only hope the next place I live has one. Or maybe a boyfriend who does the chores? Wishful thinking?

Anyway, with chores being the agenda on most of my evenings, I guess it's no wonder I have little motivation when I arrive home from work. It's dark, cold and the switch for the electric blanket is ever present in my mind and the duvet is the best place to cocoon. I love relaxing in bed with a book and being able to chill out before another early morning start. I took an evening to do just that the other day and I found I slept much better - I guess a bit of downtime from the screen really can do me good.

I'm planning on a full day of housework and baking tomorrow, followed by an evening of geekery of watching Doctor Who in the cinema. Then, on Sunday, I can relax. What are your plans? xo

  1. When I read this post I just thought, 'that's exactly how I feel sometimes'. It's always so busy at this time of year! And I completely agree about downtime. So thank you for making me feel like I'm not the only one! I enjoyed this so much I featured it on my blog posts of the month :)
