January moments..

January is an anticlimax...
Dark, long, cold.....
But light at the end of the tunnel....

January is birthdaymonth in the family..
Winter weather makes the darkness not so dark. Climate change makes few winterdays even in january.
 Springlike temperatures and rain makes January afternoons dark to run in.
I worked as a substitute teacher and got to borrow somebody elses office for a month and got to know some nice new students.

I got a box of choclates for Christmas that the shortest person in the family gladely would have eaten within five minutes. I put them on top of the diningroom lamp so that she couldn't get hold of them. A month on they where still there. The short person was the one to notice.

 Last saturday night of January! Everybody is in bed. I have cleared most of the table, drink redwine from a waterglas and watch BBC world News.  Blessed moment!

Throwback Thursday...

This is a photo of me taken in January/February 2008 - nine years ago. At the time I lived my life in a different part of the country. I lived there for seven years and look back upon that time as a really happy time. I moved away from there about a year and a half after this photo was taken (not willingly), and I missed my life there for years. I find that time passes faster and faster and when I look back, it seems like an eternity since I lived there and at the same times I think: Gosh - it seems like yesterday since I lived that life. Time is strange.

As I say I was really happy there, but would I go back? Never!

Silent Sunday..

It is really worth the effort getting out on a crisp and frosty Sunday morning!

I've got the new year blues...

The day is about as grey as my mood at the moment.

Why is it so that I come up the New years eve with expectations, hopes, readiness to grasp the new year - but as  soon as the calendar says January 1 my mood just drops?

This year is truley a new beginning as I finished my old job at the end of last year. I got a job as a substitute teacher lasting throughout January and I am working so hard to smile and be cheery! I can not believe it! I should worry as I only have the job for a month.

The weather makes me moody, I long for spring, I am constantly tired. I want to scream at everything. And blogging inspiration - oh, no!!!

It is not the first time I have felt like this at the start of a New year, but it has totally taken me by surprise. Give me strength!!
