I admit it, for once, hands up, I struggled this week. I think the weekends have been so good, and I have been able to spend time with close friends and family, that through the week I find myself a bit lost and unsure. I need to get better at filling my evenings, I cannot sit at home every night by myself. I need to recognise that time alone in the evenings is ok, but I must be productive - books must be read, the house must be tidied and sorted, I must go for walks even when the weather is bad, put on an exercise DVD, otherwise I slump, and begin to fall into hole.

However, I will be easy on myself this week - my friend is departing these shores to somewhere vastly more exciting, and I will miss her so much. I had spent a lovely weekend with friends and family - I'm always going to be a little low after that. The nights are drawing in, and the weather has changed, the seasons have changed, and I always struggle with that at this point in the year.

So onwards, and upwards, and forwards and not down and out.

I have been productive today, I have plans, I have plans for next weekend, I have some motivation back. Thats all that matters, and I will act upon it!
