Julia Is Struggling!

There, I’ve said it. I’ve owned up to you all. Things have got on top of me and at this particular moment I’m not sure how to get out of it.

Let me explain a little. As you know I am retired but you also know that I found it very difficult, particularly at first. Gradually over the first year I began to take an interest in things & now have two blogs that run a couple of weekly challenges, I’m a Governor at two schools and over the past month have been trying to set up a data base of email contacts for an Association of Governors.

Result?

Too much taken on!!

So what’s the problem I hear you ask? Ease up or give some of it up I hear you cry. Well, that’s another problem! I feel committed to it all and have those blasted demons that continually chatter in my head telling me that I must carry on. As usual, in these situations, I have ground to a bit of a halt. I say ‘bit of’ because I’m still doing stuff and I shall be at Cybermummy on Saturday but I need to slow down.

I need to get back some balance that will let me read or do my jigsaw or take some exercise without feeling that it is wasted time or time that should be spent in front of a PC or laptop. I need to remind myself that I am retired, no-one is paying me for this and most of the time no-one will worry if I stop. I need to remember that this is my life and providing I don’t harm anyone, I can please myself. I’ve earned it and need no-one’s permission to have a day off.

So Dear Reader, I may be absent for a little while. I hope that you will still be here when I get back. It won’t be for long – maybe only a few days but I wanted to keep you in the loop because you are all very special to me!

So, in the spirit of cutting back this post is one for three!

I’m posting this on the Gallery over at Sticky Fingers for the theme ‘Three Words’

I’m also posting it on Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe-Thursday because the letter this week is ‘J’.

Finally, I’m posting this on Josie’s Writing Workshop as I’m hoping this picture will soon be an example of my newly found state! !
