Getting By

I feel like we are just-about-scraping-by normal right now, putting one foot in front of the other and that's all.  Perhaps it's enough.  I am telling myself it is.

Visitors went home - taking memories of rainbow adventures.  We found new adventures instead.

Morgan insisted on sleeping in the play tunnel one night.  There's no accounting for the things that Morgan thinks of!

There are moments that sparkle.  There are moments that feel normal.  Overall, I still feel pretty dark.  I'm not trying to analyse it, just plod on with the next thing in front of me for now.  We're OK.  We're making the most of the happy moments.

  1. *Hugs* I think of you everyday and wish I could help out more to make the difficult days a little easier in whatever way I could. Such a lovely set of photos there and I know that you look back over them and are reminded of that joy.

    PS loving the red spotty grow, and the green fibres.

    1. Aw I know.

      The spotty grow is my new favourite, so fun - and the fibres are English superwash wool, hoping they will dry quickly, I love the green too. :)

  2. Dark days are hard, I never know how to offer support to get through them...not because Im embaressed or anything like that but I simply don't remember how I got/get through mine. Like you I simply put one foot in front of the other, plod along till I find the lighter days again.
    Sending you and your loved ones lightness

    1. I dunno how much I'm holding it together sometimes, sobbing in the kitchen this morning because I woke up to little ones fighting and it all feels like my fault! But thank you. I'm trying hard to keep some kind of normal until this passes. :S

  6. Maybe its the season shift, I feel at odds too, like summer is gone but Autumn hasn't began yet and I am in a slump in the middle. Tea and cake always help you know ;)

  7. I think Valerie might be right about it being the seasons shift. There have been so many storms and a lot of atmospheric pressure and humidity recently. I have found it's been getting to me :)
    I know exactly what you mean about it feeling like it's your fault when there is bickering. It's a horrible feeling, I have to remind myself it's just a natural part of them growing up when they go through their squabbly phases:)
    Also when the girls are going through their own transitions or growth spurt etc at the same time... things can feel more pressurised.
    Hope you are feeling better soon :)
    What a cosy little space Morgan has created!
