I'm soo stressed this evening!! :(

It wont be helpful to share all the stressful things that today has held.. just to say I am now, finally, home alone and able to get my work done before the morning (2000 words, one computer, no interuptions, space to myself :) Finally.. bliss!)

But I'm still calming down after such a pointless waste of a day, and this HAS TO BE FINISHED before I go to sleep tonight, and I've got soo much to do..

Luckily, I love what I do, and I'll get it done.. but for the first time in a long time, I keep finding myself in the empty kitchen cupboards, looking naughtily at the tins and jars.. I don't want anything there - I WANT TO BE DOING MY WORK!!!

There's nothing interesting in there anyway, the odd tin of kidney beans and half finished jars of jam sitting there for weeks.. my OH buys just what he's going to cook and nothing more, so that helps.. I'd neither enjoy eating anything, or how I'd feel afterwards, but I'm having fantasies about a teaspoon of jam, or cooking some rice.. and I know it's all just about avoiding my work.. and that's daft cause I love my work!! I'm just trying to settle down into it and struggling!!

Right! Stress shared - hopefully not doubled!! Haha! :D

Let's see how I get on now...

I empathise with a lot of this! I do the odd bit of freelance work and writing to a deadline usually gives me a severe attack of the munchies. I will also confess that no open jar of jam is safe from me. I can't pass one without getting a teaspoon and just having a tiiiiny little bit. Okay, well, maybe not always that tiny, but I can't resist a taste, so I admire your discipline!

Hope the work gets itself done without too much torn out hair. ;)

:) You're welcome. I don't why, but writing always makes me hungry. Maybe still too mentally tied to the days when I'd nibble my way through a pack of choc digestives over the course of one article. 'Finish this paragraph and you can have a bounty bar. Or five!' Ahh, the chocoholic brain in action... :p
