Just frazzled.

Work is busy.

Life is busy.

Marking and letters and prep and emails and packages and haircuts and lunches and stuff.

Everything feels like a rush.

I fall into bed exhausted...

...and wake up, never quite rested enough.

My boyfriend is a saint.

So much of what's going on is lovely...



...and exciting.

But this Country Mouse sorely needs a nap, a cup of tea, or a rest.

Here's hoping they are just around the corner...

PS Because I don't want to worry anyone - I'm fine. In fact, I'm just en route to bed. But this is the kind of blog post you get when Claire realises it's 10.30 pm Sunday and she's done 6 hours straight of extra planning and prep, isn't quite sure if she has knickers (let along trousers or a skirt!) to wear to school tomorrow, and her brain is tired. I also had every good intention of writing a nice newsy blog post but as the pile of work refused to budge, that time window clicked shut, and I was disappointed. More as soon as I possibly can.

Busy is good.

But man, is it tiring!

  1. Oh dear, I can sympathize with you. Frazzledness makes you miss the care-free lazy days of summer, er?

    But your fall break is coming up soon? We have a long weekend, and it's making all the difference for me.

    Take care of yourself amongst the busy-ness!

  2. We're all feeling the rush, Chica. I don't know why that is, but maybe it's the transition from a lazy summer to a busy fall.

    Let's think about Christmas and everything on your wish list. I'm creating mine "as we speak." You've inspired me! ;)

    Wishing you a happy week! xo

  3. I hope you can take time tomorrow to curl up under a blanket with a nice hot cup of tea!!

  4. Sleep well! I've been catching up on sleep during my trip because I've been way to frazzled as well.

  5. Sounds like laundry time is in order for you.

  6. How well I remember the extra planning! Don't work too hard!

  7. Busy is very good. It's great that you have someone to help take the "frazzle" out of life.

  8. Maybe it's time to schedule some Me Time. Take care of yourself! :-)


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
