The black cloud

I can always feel it's presence, it's always there somewhere looming in the background. I'm talking about the Black Cloud, the Black Cloud of depression. The cloud that I seem to spend my life fighting against for no real reason. It never really leaves you.

It is always made worse for me by bad weather, which results in me being stuck inside all day with two lively little-uns.
So today instead of giving in to it, I'm making a list of reason of why I should be happy and thankful for what I've got...

  • My children are happy and healthy
  • I have a man that loves me unconditionally
  • We have a beautiful home in a beautiful part of the world
  • We have enough money to feed, clothe and enjoy ourselves
  • We live in a part of the world that is safe and not surrounded by violence
  • I have recently made some lovely new mummy friends
  • This day will end and hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow

  1. oh no! you know what you need?!... A good dose of scrapbooking! come over to the group tomorrow night. bring a happy photo and spend the evening remembering happy memories whilst creating a beautiful page :o) i have loads of stuff you can use, you're very creative, i think you'd be great at it!

    1. ooo that sounds good. Never done scrapbooking before x

  2. Hi Gina, I've been feeling pretty low myself today and have vented my upset on my blog. I agree the weather doesn't help, it is very difficult to entertain two little ones when you can't go outside!
    Tomorrow is another day.
    Lovely blog

    1. Hi Aimee, thanks for the comment and the follow. Just had a read of your post, hope everything gets better soon x

  3. Oh Gina, it sounds like a few of us have been feeling a bit rubbish lately. I've been sharing how I feel on my blog too this week. The sun does literally brighten things up, this horrible weather isn't helping, nor is it helping me keep my toddler entertained

    1. yes the weather definitley doesn't help. Looks like the sun is out today though so hopefully we will all feel a bit better soon x


I would love to know what you think? Go on make my day. x
