It's been a while folks…!

I literally can't believe how long it has been since I have put keyboard to blogger…time and life have just got away from me.

I left you all last year, way back in late October, and have not really been on planet DIY since!  

I can't really put my finger on what has been going on, but a few things have changed since I last checked in.  

1. I have been working full time since the beginning of November, it has been an adjustment after so long away from work recovering from surgery.  I have been getting home exhausted, so DIY has taken the proverbial back seat.  

2. The house has come on some, but alas, even after all this time we still don't have a room that is 100% finished, how can that be!  Time, inclination and money for starters…!

3. The target I set for the house for Christmas was wholly unreasonable, which was so disappointing and put me in a major funk.  We didn't even put up a tree in the end.
4. Winter, I always forget how much the lack of sun and daylight affect me…I have been a very S.A.D. bunny!  

5. I had a birthday, always a depressing prospect.

All in all, I was literally a DIY burnout, living and breathing it for a year, I needed a break for my sanity.  I didn't read a blog or pick up a paint brush for more than a month, instead I have spent the last few months overdosing on copious amounts of trashy TV, chocolate, carbs, butter and wine to sublimate the ickyness.  Needless to say my jeans now are way too tight!  JOY!    

The self-pitying wallowing has mostly come to an end, it's a new year, and we have made an attempt to start again for 2014.  The husband and I have taken a few days off work to make a start on the guest bedroom, only to be struck down with pestilence…Oh well, we'll push through!
