I’ve been back at work the last two days after having (almost) a one year break. It’s safe to say I was quite nervous on Monday. Luckily I eased myself into it, only working a couple of hours a day and my first ‘customer’ was a college. Yesterday though, I had 2 paying customers. It felt like it went in slow motion, especially the first cut, but I managed to be done in time.
Today I have a day off and even though I feel like I do something ever single day, whether it’s laundry, cleaning or just look after my son, I can’t help to feel lazy. I don’t know why and I wish I didn’t beat myself up over it. It’s like everyone around me is so productive and I’m not even halfway to my goals.
We did manage to create a new office space so hopefully the creativity will just be flowing in this room. I really want to start sewing again reguallary and actually finish pieces I love and would want to wear. I have some huge ideas, I just don’t know how to get them down to paper and where to start. Fixing my serger to the right stitch lengths has also been a battle. I still have to figure out what the right settings are and how in the world I’m going to use it probably.
Wish me luck!
Today was a cold and gray day. Unlike yesterday when the sun was shinning and the flowers still bloomed. What a different a day can make. Now the sidewalk is covered with snow and there is yet again a cold breeze outside. It may go without saying but we stayed inside today. Even though I desperately need to make a trip to the grocery market because our fridge is running empty soon. Other than staying inside today I managed to clean a little, take an afternoon nap and start a new sewing project. Hopefully I’ll be able to share the process and result with you soon. I’ll be heading off to bed in less than twenty minutes so I’ll say goodnight now.
08.00 – My alarm goes off after hitting snooze way to many times – it’s inevitable, I have to get out of bed.
09.00 – Out the door 15 minutes before the usual time. Unfortunately it’s been snowing all night and my car is snowed in.
09.15 – I’ve finally finished shuffling enough snow to get me out of the drive way. Wheels start spinning and frustration keeps on building.
09.30 – I’m on the road, finally made it up the slippery road from the house, and now my windows are foggy. I can’t see anything, but I try gently to drive out on the road. I’m not going any more then 20 km/h in second gear up the hill before I decide it’s too dangerous.
09.35 – I stop by a bus stop and try fanatically to find a solution. My fan that usually get’s the car warm is broken and it doesn’t do anything. Fog is spreading all over to the back window and I’m stuck.
09.40 – I start crying, not seeing any solution. I’m less then 2 minutes from my house and I’m too afraid to drive back. I call my work and tell them I can’t come in today. After I hang up I get the worst panic attack and I feel as if I can’t breath.
10.15 – I’m back home and the car is parked. I’ve gathered myself but am still angry about the weather. I start shuffling the drive way in hopes to get out my frustration and don’t stop before the hour has passed.
Yes, it has stopped snowing! Waking up and only seeing white outside your window is the worst, especially since the snow finally started to melt the last couple of weeks. Now we’re back at it again, and it’s March and stuff. I guess we’ve gotta wait for spring a little longer.
I finally released a new video on YouTube and it’s my go-to make-up whenever I’m in a rush, which is like every single day. I usually don’t were make-up as often as I did before, just because I don’t want to get used to only seeing my face fully made up and not liking how I actually look. I see so many girls that hate to go outside their own home without mascara or blush, and it’s not supposed to be that way. Make-up should be fun and artistic, and not a daily need for it.
I wil hopefully also shoot and release a review of the products used in the video above. Have a lovely Wednesday. Only two more days till the weekend!
I know it’s been two days since I’ve posted something, and that is just not ok. I could say that I’ve been busy with work which is true, but that doesn’t mean I can neglect you guys! I love to write and share, inspire and post, and I can only learn from this.
It’s Saturday and finally a day off for me. I don’t have anything special on the agenda today other then the usual cleaning that I try to do whenever I have a day off.
I actually get things done better when I see them written down and it makes me more motivated. I will check in with you later again today. I hope you have a great day!
1. See the sunrise
How beautiful isn’t it to wake up before everyone else and enjoy the perfect painted picture God creates every morning. It’s a sight I never can get enough of.
2. Enjoy the early morning silence
Whilst sipping your morning coffee or tee listening to nothing else than complete silence around you. A gift we often take for granted.
3. Plan your day
When you wake up early you get the chance to plan out every single hour of the day ahead of you.
Maybe not the most motivating way to get out of bed but just imaging how satisfied you’ll feel after a good morning routine. Start of with some stretching and maybe some light cardio, before you know it you’ll be jumping out of bed to get ahead.
5. Sleep more
The last and maybe the best reason to get up early is that you’ll be tired in the evening which will force you to go to bed early.
Started my Monday morning off with shuffling snow for an hour. It’s literally been snowing since Friday. At least I can finally see my car again and hopefully also make a successful trip to the supermarket to buy food. I always get so shaky when I have to drive when it’s snowing and icy on the road. Nothing that makes me feel more unease when I don’t have full control over a situation.
I’m debating on whether I should film a video soon because I do miss filming, editing and all that YouTuber stuff. Other then that I still have to check off my ‘to-do’ list. Still some cleaning and house keeping to do, but I don’t mind. It’s actually rather fun when it’s your own home and you see the results.
My home office today. I always get the couch or the bed, but I don’t mind. At least I get to update you once in a while. I know I have been neglecting to write. I don’t know where to start. Should I tell you the whole story or only put to words the ‘perfect’ picture? It’s easy to hide behind a screen, for me and for you. I still have the control but if I share it all, you will get it. You will get the control to judge me, and I don’t know if I’m ready for that.
It’s been snowing the last couple of days just when I thought winter was over. We had a green holiday but I guess winter comes every year. At least I have three days off now so I will be enjoying the snow from inside.
Spring was right around the corner and then over night we were snowed in. Not literally but I was too scared to drive to work by myself so asked my dear father to take me. Luckily he said yes and even though I came 20 minutes late we all got home safe in the end. But after that awful long day, working 8,5 hours I could feel I was getting sick. So the last two days I’ve been trying to get enough sleep so that my body will recover before the weekend is over. Drinking tons of lemon water and tea. And lets not forget, I’m at tissue pack number six so it’s safe to say that my nose is bright red and a little sore.
