I’m bringing Sparkleguts back from the dead for a while. I need to be able to write where no one is reading.

I’m tired. I didn’t brush my teeth today; I’ll do that soon. I have to wash the dishes. I’ll aim to be bed by 9. All I want to do right now is sew. Sew sew sew. Sew out all the pain and turn it into something beautiful. Sew the long skirts and flared trousers I want to wear… the ones that will fit over my increasingly padded hips and bum.

I look tired, and I am. I want to hide. I want to crawl under the covers and sleep for a thousand years. But time continues its dogged march onwards, and we must follow in its wake.

I resigned a few weeks ago. Post-resignation life is pretty weird… I don’t know what it will hold for me. I shall work that out another day. Right now I shall do the dishes, brush my teeth and put myself to bed.
