Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 335 – Chill? What Chill?

25+ Best Exhausted Pigeon Memes | Early Bird Memes, Early Memes, Exhaustion  Memes

Thanks for that Meme, Spidey. It pretty much sums up my feels, right now!

I know I have shared something similar in the past, but right now, this whole sentiment of being a permanently exhausted pigeon hits the spot!

So, last weekend, Spidey and I had a break, as Pops and Mum were down, and we did spend wonderful moments with them, that went far too quickly.

And I am two weeks into my summer break.

Er, and I still don’t feel rested. But then, I suppose, in order to be rested, I’d actually have to be able to stop, for a h

The first week comprised of cricket (what a surprise!), at least 4 days, as well as the visit from my parents, which was lovely, but busy, and emotional too, which is to be expected after seeing each other after a year!

They left on Sunday, and then this past week’s commitments started, with a cricket tournament starting on Sunday, all afternoon, as well as a match on Monday and Friday, plus an eyebrow appointment on Tuesday, and then three visits to hospitals, (not for me, I was designated driver for my in-laws and their apppintments!) Two of those appointments needed them to be at the relevant hospitals early morning, and I had a 25 minute journey to them, followed by another half an hour to the actual appointments, so I was tired. The last one was actually my father-in-law’s cataract surgery, so I was sat in the car for 3 hours, waiting, and reading until he came out.

Friday/Saturday, aside from cleaning the house, and grocery shopping, I also built the garden furniture that we had ordered. Now we just need the weather to change, so we can enjoy it!

I have been shattered. This is why. No real time to stop, and put the breaks on. At least, I haven’t been in school, yet. I have tried, purposely, to stop thinking about work, even though I do end up with emails coming, that are still important ones to act upon, but I have managed to put them on the back burner, so far.

But, my writing mojo has disappeared. I really wanted to use August to do some more writing on book two, but it’s just not there, at the moment. I have sat with my document open several times, but nothing flows. My body and mind are on a bit of a strike, I fear.

Talking of body, my aches and pains are coming back, in the knees and shoulder… it’s not a fantastic place to be.

At least I am snatching time to read, though. Heaven knows I have enough books on that TBR pile, including another fourteen arcs I have a deadline on, to read!

I really must try and slow down… Someone, have a word with Life, and ask it to give me a little break… please!

So, what about you? Do you find it easy to step away from responsibilities, and take a well deserved break?


Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 286 – Busy Bee


Hey guys, just to say Spidey is having a break today, because the big clear out is taking its toll on us both!

Still so much to do, but not many days left before we to back to school, where I’ll be juggling house stuff along with the new school systems in the new year, with my new management role!

Wish me luck, Peeps!

Stay safe, all ❤

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 222


“If you’re tired, learn to rest, not quit.” – Anon

Thank you Spidey. Apt for me right now!

It’s been an exhausting few weeks, what with being the taxi for the whole household, dealing with Hopalong Hubby, the kids and their myriad activites that they need be be at, struggling with switching off at home because of everything that needs to be done, reading and writing, for the blog as well as looking at the WIP, along with a tiring term at school where assessments, reports, and the beginnings of preparations for next year are about to commence, and coupled with a wonderful yet busy weekend away at the beginning to see my brother… I am totally done!

Sometimes it feels like the easy way. To think, I can’t do this any more, and give up. No more blog, no more writing, no more stress at work. ( I can’t give up being a wife or mum!)

But I can’t do that.

All these things are what make me, me!

Instead a break is what is needed. And perfectly timed, my school mid term break has arrived. Two weeks of not having to wake too early, and peace from school at least. Though there are still reports to write, I can switch off from that side for a while. I’ll carry on doing all the other things, but at a more relaxed pace… And enjoy them all too!

So… tell me, what do you need to take a break from?
