Back to normal

Yeah I know you look at the photo above and you ask yourself, now didn't Kim just tell us she spent 10 days learning how to take brilliant photos and then tweak them in Photoshop?  And the answer is Yes I did do all of the above, but today life is back to normal, you know how it is, the honeymoon is over.  My house was beginning to look a little tired I must say, the floors were crying out for attention and the carpets of my goodness, we won't even go there!  My bathroom was a disaster, you see I am a 100% girl, actually make that a 200% girl.  Everything I do, I do full speed ahead.  So during the 10 days that I was off swanning around learning to become brilliantly talented, my poor old abode was totally neglected.  And then for the last 3 days I have been recovering.  I know what a drama queen I am, but I was exhausted.  I had to help a friend learn a bit more about the computer she is using, emailing etc and when I got home after lunch yesterday I literally crashed.  My 20 min power nap turned into a 2 hour snooze, uh ha I know crazy hey.  But it is really hot here at the moment and I am obviously built for cooler climes, so France in May will suit me to a T.  Anyhow life is back to normal pretty much and while I still have baskets of ironing to do (I HATE HATE ironing) and I am about to do my shower this evening when I hop in too, everything else is now sorted.  I think my tablets are kicking in and I don't feel as despondent as I was a few weeks ago, so things are looking up.  I have cleaned out a few more cubby holes round the place and the joy of emptying cupboards and tossing out stuff I have been hoarding is wonderful.

I'm 49 next Monday and there is a public holiday on Tuesday here for Australia Day, nice of them to give everyone a holiday so close to my birthday makes me feel special.  So another year is rolling along, that's the way it is hey!
