This is me stuck in mud. Note the toddler like pose as I try desperately not to fall over, also pay attention to the socks pulled firmly over my jeans in a bid to keep them out of the mud.
This photo really sums up how things are at the moment - bogged down, moving slowly and cautiously with other forces working against me. Don't get me wrong I'm still happy and optimistic but January has not been my friend so far. I've not posted much as there wasn't much to report - I've been cutting back, keeping warm, trying not to indulge in too many comforting stodgey foods and planning stuff to do when spring arrives.
