Trying to get going!

I've got ideas for three different crafty projects - 2 crocheted and 1 fabric - had the idea for 2 of them for a while, the 3rd just came to me a couple of days ago.  Trouble is, I just can't seem to get the impetus to get started on any of them....which is a bit of a problem especially since all three are destined to be gifts, one for a birthday and the other two as 'thank you's'. 

I seem to have lost my mojo at the moment....well, not lost it as such, it's more a case of having too much to do/think about and things getting put on hold whilst I get my brain in gear for other things.  Had a minor health worry recently, which thankfully has been dispelled following a visit to my GP this morning, so that's one thing out of the way.  Got another couple of health appointments coming up though - routine, but still a niggle (oh the joys of getting older!).  OH has an appointment with a specialist next month for an ongoing problem with his foot.  There's a possible trip up North on the horizon to help out a close relative with health problems. 

OH's work are being a pain in the arse over his upcoming reduction in hours in the lead up to retirement....they've known about this for months, he put it in writing last October!  They've agreed in principle, but are dragging their heels over the details of shift days/times....we feel as though we can't really do anything until we know for sure.  Honestly, I just wish they'd get their bloody fingers out and sort it out....there's only 6 weeks left until the date he told them he wants to start on the new shifts.  Each week they come up with yet another excuse as to why it's not been sorted yet.  We're supposed to be sorting out a holiday for Sept/Oct, but can't really do that until we know about his new shifts.

All this means my head is full to bursting with STUFF, I just can't seem to settle to anything or concentrate on just one thing at a time.

  1. Oh how I know exactly what you mean!! Sometimes it's so hard to sift through your thoughts when there's too much floating around in there! I really hope everything sorts itself out for you both :)

  2. I hope your husband's shifts get sorted soon, I know from personal experience how much that can upset everything - it is the not knowing isn't it. I had similar when I went from full-time to semi-retirement. Hopefully when that is sorted you will feel more motivated and in the zone again with your crafting. xx

    1. Yes, it is the not knowing, Jan. Still no word from his manager, she did apologise to him yesterday for not having sorted it out yet and said they will be having a meeting about it today (they've been saying that for weeks though!).
