Thursday, December 8

boring boring. . .

I feel quite well, quite happy and quite joie-de-vivre-ful.
Life is very good, very busy, very eventful and very stimulating.
But somehow I feel boring.
I have nothing to complain about; counting my blessings I know I'm the luckiest person alive yet when someone asks me what I've been upto, my recounting of what were lovely times spent doing lovely things sounds like a rollcall of day-filling at its most bland.
"Ahhhhh" they say with feigned politeness, heads tipped quizzically. "Ahhhhh, I see" but they don't see, not really.
I don't look boring, well not if you appreciate The Dressing Up Box Meets Refugee Chic mode of dressing, but inside those pink tights and 40s hats there's a coredom of boredom seeping through.
Middle age? Time of year? Lack of dancing on the table (don't think I can even get UP on the table!)
I'm not dissatisfied, I love everything I do and do everything I love, so why do I feel boring?

I think you should sit down with a cup of tea (or a glass of champagne!) and read your past posts.... lively, funny, interesting, colourful, and more... but definitely, NOT boring!!
Love, Abby xx

Maybe becasue you're on the verge.....on the verge of exciting.

Life is what we make it, yours sounds fulfilled, sometimes this can make us feel boring or bored, but take another step back and then take a flying leap and do something challenging.

Maybe you need a couple of rescue girls again!! (Chickens for the uninitiated.) There are loads looking for new homes at the moment as the law is set to change at the end of December and millions of caged birds are being sent to slaughter before Christmas, if you act fast you could have a few in a week!!

Oh Elaine, you are definitely not boring! And I'd love to see a photo of the pink tights and 40s hats! Have a lovely weekend.

I'm seconding Ruth...I want pictures of the pink tights and 40s hats, please.
I'm sure you are not boring in the least! We need the calm, regular time to then enjoy and marvel at the 'more exciting' aspects.
Go and give Bruce a big hug and enjoy being 'boring'!

I really empathise, and I do think it is partly dark days and spending too much time at home that makes me feel bored and boring. And much as I love Christmas in some ways, sometimes it all feels a bit stuck-in-a-time-warp-the-same and in need of a shake-up! I don't have any very helpful ideas on how to shake the bored feeling (I think it will just pass), though I think a long walk outside today might blow away the cobwebs...

It's this time of year .... I always get restless and bored and turn into the grinch ..... Love the sound of pink tights - perhaps that's what I need! Chin up xx

Ha! You're not the least bit boring, but I know what you mean. Who really wants to hear about my boys wrestling matches and the latest item I'm knitting or crocheting? But trust me, other peoples lives always seem more interesting and there is something bright in your future....

I really don't think of you as the Boring type, perhaps it is the time of year as Lalabibaby says. I know I always feel I should be doing more, I feel like I'm spinning and getting nowhere. I get stressed out and feel a little depressed. So I like to get creative and make or bake something to feel productive, or hide out/let my mind wander as I wander through an antique shop or go to an auction I most always see or buy something that lightens my heart and makes me smile. Warm Hugs,

You couldn't possibly be boring! I think we all go through this phase at times. Perhaps you need something new and exciting in your life. Is there a class you could join and learn something new? Meet some new people maybe? Or do some charity work to feel useful. Lots of luck xx

Just a phase you are going thru for sure as you are not boring Elaine! We all go thru our phases. You're unique and wonderful! And you have one of the best most interesting blogs around! xo

Now young lady.....I have met you and I can safely say you are one of the least boring people I have met, even your house is emmencely interesting, it is not you who is boring, it is the hum drum of every day life i think? especially this time of year. xx BIG hugs x

Awwww Elaine, you are not the least bit boring but I do understand how you feel. I sometimes feel that way when speaking the the mums at the school gates who don't really 'get' me!

It is difficult to be sparkling and exciting at this time of year too when swathed in boring woolly layers ;-)
