I didn't realise how much the dry weather had been affecting my psyche until the rain set in on Saturday night. I have been suffering insomnia (and although I would love some extra hours in the day, those extra hours awake thanks to being unable to sleep really are a waste) which I think may have been partly brought on through worry about water or lack there of really. Much like those going through flooding rain right now thinking the rain will never end, when it has been dry for so long, it feels like it just might never rain again. I am happy to say that we have had a good soaking and my thoughts have lightened considerably.
So with tanks filling and it being too wet to do anything outdoors except the essentials (just a few days ago it was because it was too hot outdoors ??), some relaxing has been on the agenda. Crocheting a pin cushion, sewing, playing board games (not by choice), reading and just generally taking it easy. Back to routine tomorrow though, school is in.
And some advice to myself. If it is rainy weather and you are baking for the school/ work lunchboxes. Make a double batch elsewise there will not be any for said lunchboxes.
Hope all of my blogging friends are safe and sound in the extremes that seem to be spread far and wide.
