A busy head

I suffer terribly from this, just ask my husband. Symptoms generally include having too many thoughts for the relatively small space that is my mind, flitting from one thing to the next and having a semi-permanent frown between my eyebrows. I'm fairly certain it's hereditary and that it's my mum's fault for passing on that gene! Things which are fighting for space in my head right now include:

:: coursework folders - although today was the deadline for those so that should free up a good 10% of brain space I should think!

:: ways to lose a smidgen of weight before our summer holiday and my sister's wedding. I'm trying to work out a way to do it without giving up chocolate which makes the task all the more difficult!

:: a ton of layout ideas which I just can't seem to get around to doing.

:: decorating ideas for the playroom which we just painted last week - how does one make a 6'x4' train set smaller?

:: Patrick's birthday - present ideas, party ideas, cake ideas......  Although I have created some fab invitations for him to give out. I'll share them later as I don't want to give the game away just yet :)

:: building myself up for buying new jeans. I used to be able to lift my size in Fat Face and just know they would fit, but they recently changed all their sizing without consulting me and it's causing a jean disaster. I know you know the feeling!

:: wanting to sew something but not really knowing what. I'd love a summer skirt and I also love this pattern at Sew Liberated.

When my head gets busy like this I tend to procrastinate, which makes the problem even worse. But this weekend I managed, with the help of a friend, to complete at least one layout. We challenged ourselves to use some products we got in our recent order and this is what I came up with. I've fallen into my old grid habit, but it works and I love seeing 8 photos of our holiday last summer on one page.

The good life

I'm hoping that the busyness in my head will ease soon and that I can motivate myself to do more creating and less thinking! What's going on in your head?
