Eat. Sleep. Rave. Repeat.

"Oz" Heels: Irregular Choice

A typical daily outfit to head back to work on Tuesday. I have to admit I felt rather relaxed after a long weekend of baking, dressmaking, catching up with friends and getting the allotment more in order, as well as spending some rather rare time with the OH, who has been working away more often than not, lately. I'm not really complaining as I relish my own space, if I'm honest, so a little distance can be a good thing.

Back to work and it's shaping up to be the busiest week in a while, which is crazy as it's a short one. Guess that's just how it goes, though. I'm stressed almost all of the time recently, and struggling to remember everything. To Do Lists are my friend. This seems ludicrous as all of the extra-curricular things like Rangers and Guides don't even start back up until next week, but allotment committee stuff has been keeping me busy, with a lot of plot turnover at this time of year.

Anyone else feel as though they've taken on too much, sometimes, and yet find it impossible to say no to things?

  1. I do exactly the same - taking on different projects even though I'm struggling with the one that actually is going to cost me my degree. Super smart. Hope you get everything done and feel less stressed soon.
    I really love the outfit too, you look gorgeous. xxx

  4. I feel like that all the time. I tend to want to do everything and help everyone until I realise I simply don't have the time or energy... it's frustrating.

  6. Another day, another awesome pair of shoes! I think I'm quite boring, I rather enjoy staying in after work and watching some TV or a film. ;)

  7. This f&f dress is gorgeous, it looks JUST like an Emily and Fin one I saw in tk maxx 5mins ago and I love these shoes so much! Such a beautiful cheery Emerald City colour! Oh yes. I know exactly what you're talking about re taking too much on. I've done it all my life from my teenage years of learning 5 musical instruments, being in 6 ensembles OUT of school, homework plus having a part time job 2 evenings a week and nowadays where I run 6-7 ensembles at school!!! We have to learn that word-mind you, we are only young once! X

    1. Oh, I just want to help everyone, I think that's it. I'm always like "oh, I'll find time!" and I do try to, but sometimes I think it would be nicer if I could actually sit at home and do something I wanted to do without the guilty feeling that i should be doing something else.

  8. Love the dress! My brain has felt ridiculously full lately so I've booked time off work next week to do nice things at home. Cannot wait to nap!

  11. I hope that work gets less busy for you soon. You sound like you have a crazy schedule- I have no idea how you fit in blogging around all that!! I love the outfit you're wearing. The colours are gorgeous and you look really pretty. I'd been eyeing the dress up online but it looks much nicer in 'real life'. xx

    1. Thanks, I'm hoping that it will as well. I'm trying so hard to manage my time as best as I can but it does mean that I don't sometimes have the time to do all of the things I'd like to.
