I only have one espresso daily and lately I have been feeling like having a break and clearing my system of caffeine. So I didnt have a coffee in the morning as usual and by mid afternoon I had the beginnings of a migraine, by evening it was full blown and no painkillers could kill it.
I still had the headache the next day and I ended up having a coffee to get rid of it. How am I supposed to stop drinking it without getting a migraine?!!
Ok, so I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing as I have only just decided to try writing this novel but I am already finding it hard to turn my brain off once an idea pops into my head late at night. As a new mum I am still lacking sleep so although I am enjoying the fresh inspiration, I do not want to lay awake at night with thoughts and ideas about the novel swimming around in my head! This novel could take years as I only get a little bit of time to work on it a day. Gotta take the good with the bad I suppose…..
While I lay in bed trying to sleep after a 12am breastfeeding session I wondered what I would write about in my quest to write more. Strangely I found myself dreaming up a novel. I have never wanted to write a novel before and I have no idea how, but I kept getting the urge that this is what I should do. I have no idea how this is going to play out as keep getting flashbacks to primary school when we were asked to write a story…. I was never very good at it and always felt extremely inadequate at writing something that would be interesting to anyone let alone myself! I just didn’t seem to have the knack that some of the other boys in class had. They even drew pictures! 🙂 So lets just see how this goes eh. I am gonna give it a go and even if it sucks I would like to finish it. wish me luck!!
i am getting pretty bored about the place as we are living in limbo at my mother’ s house and all our stuff is in storage. My husband works full time and is helping build the studio we will live in on his weekends so I spend my time playing/changing/feeding/settling our almost 9 month old little girl. I have taken to doing some gardening here but most of the property is bushland, and I am trying to do more exercise in the mornings when my mum can watch Lennox, but other than that I have no clue what to do with my time. I have baked a few cakes, made up a weeks worth of baby food etc do the cooking and washing blah blah blah but I am bored.
The whole purpose of being at mum’s is to save money to buy our own place so I don’t really want to start up a hobby that costs money, and although I would like to paint and do pottery (and have the stuff to do that here) I can’t really get into that stuff with a toddler toddling about. So therefore, my only conclusion is to write more. This could be a warning to everyone, or a blessing 🙂 but either way – watch this space! x
