For the past few days, I’ve been feeling exhausted, and unusually for me, unmotivated. I’ve been looking forward to the three day weekend for ages, but I just feel like I’ve done nothing…probably because I’ve not spent very much time on the computer. Instead I spent Friday evening with friends, then spent most of Saturday in the fruitless search for a bridesmaid dress (I’ve since given up, it was stressing me out to ridiculous levels and I just got sick and tired of the whole thing). Yesterday I sorted my entire wardrobe, went to the gym and had Sunday lunch out at the pub with my mum. And today I cleaned and tidied my room from top to bottom before going food shopping. Mini banoffee pies are in progress in the fridge, and I’m currently looking at all the emails and invoices I have to send, articles to write and edit, and blog posts to draft, and to be honest I can’t face any of it right now. My right eye is twitching at the thought. I have done some web stuff, like replying to a couple of emails and editing a guest post, but hardly anything compared to what I normally do.

I need a holiday badly; the other reason I’m stressed is the weather. It’s been raining practically non-stop for days, maybe even weeks, now and it’s gloomy and depressing. But unfortunately I don’t have time to go anywhere, even if I had the money (I’m currently saving up for a macro lens and that shit is expensive). I think I may have just been spending too much time on the Internet, as weird as it feels to type that. I’m even bored of Facebook.

You’d think that the recent PageRank update and Google Penguin would motivate me; none of my sites have been negatively affected and one of my sites has benefited hugely as the traffic has increased by about 500%. But instead I just want to sleep. I’m going to get an early night tonight and hopefully that will help. I’d really like to hibernate until mid June, but somehow I don’t think that’s going to happen any time soon! So instead I’ll finish my banoffee pies and then curl up in bed with a book
