A blue week…

This week I’ve been feeling decidedly blue. Meh. Less-than. Under-the-weather.

This is most unlike me.

I tend to be quite sunny and happy and relaxed and grateful (fear not, I’m still grateful!).

Blue may be one of my favourite colours, but it’s rarely a descriptor of my mood.

Except this week.

I feel sad and ugly and fat and lonely and useless and oh-so-very-tired. I feel like a rubbish friend / girlfriend / sister / daughter / blogger / you name it, and just feel a little lost.

I’d love a hug and / or a good long chat. But I’m being anti-social (why burden anyone around me?) and I’m not actually sure what is wrong. I feel like I’ve lost something but I can’t fathom what.

But fear not, gentle reader. This evening I am going to cook myself a yummy and healthful supper, watch the delightful sparkles on Strictly, and then have a bath and an early night. Tomorrow I shall go for a walk and call my mummy, as well as attacking the to do list. It’s going to get better. Right?

PS All prayers / good thoughts appreciated. I want to feel like me again.

    I think we sometimes just need to wallow a little bit. But tomorrow will be a better day 🙂

    I have been having the same kind of week. Let's hope we both pop out of it soon.

    Claire your a lovely lady inside and out and you are always such a cheerful person who always has cherry things to say… I love that about you! But honestly we have those times and moments where we don't seem our selves I know that I have felt that way, just down and blue. I think one thing that always brings me comfort is praying and reading Gods word " For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, "Do not fear, I will help you". Isaiah 41:13*Hug** hope you have a better week!

    I have been thinking about you since I read this post, but didn't comment since all I had on me at the time was my phone.But, know that you are awesome, and cared about, and I know you'll find your way out this, and found what you've lost and come out even better than you were before!*giant hugs*
