Today's card...

Not the best photo - sorry!

My heart's instinct is to hibernate... tomorrow is the Winter Solstice, the longest night, the shortest day.

Also, feeling rather cr*p - had my diabetic review on Wednesday, and my numbers aren't great, so totally changing my insulin regime *sigh*

It means I feel nauseous, tired, weepy...

Hence, I want to burrow, to hide, to wait till my body adjusts, which I know it will.

And after tomorrow, the days will get longer, a new year will be born, and life will feel good again!

In the meantime, I sit with an image by a favourite artist, words by a favourite poet and rest in being a hope-filled Romantic, trusting that the diabetic nurse knows what she's doing...


  1. Positive thoughts lovely lady - but you listen to that inside voice, take it easy and take care of yourself xxx

  2. It is a time of staying inside - inside the house, inside oneself - I can totally relate. Take it easy, listen to your body and as you say - a new year is ahead of us! All the best for your health!

  3. Hi Claire,

    That is tough!

    And I know all about the weepy bit - feeling like that myself (I know it is my black dog of winter howling at the door).

    There is nothing wrong with hibernating and burrowing - that might be just what you need right now. Sometimes fighting so hard is not the best idea, and giving in and taking a rest is. You(r body) will know best. Just hang in there, girl! I'm thinking of you and sending you positive thoughts...

    Perhaps this will cheer you up a bit. A journey to the darkest night. Beautiful videos, guided imagery exercises and creative ideas, and FREE!


  4. hope the hibernating yields some serious refreshment!


Thank you for taking the time to comment - I really appreciate it!
It's good to know I'm not alone :)
