Quick update

Hey peeps 🙂

I thought I’d write a quick update with an explanation for the lack of posts and interaction with you guys for the last month or so. You see, I quit smoking! After over 25 yrs of smoking 2 packs a day, I went cold turkey at the end of August, a good thing right?  Well, you’d think so, all the health benefits not to mention the money saved should be enough to make me feel pretty damn awesome, but I didn’t count on ‘Quitters Depression’, who knew that was even a thing?? Over three months in and I’m still struggling each week to find motivation to do anything, I’m generally miserable and irritable (more so than my usual moody cow persona) and a complete pain in the ass to live with right now.  I also lost all interest in fixing up furniture which sucked as that took up most of my time, I was expecting to be more productive with all of the extra time on my hands previously spent smoking….but no, nothing, zilch.

That being said, this week I’m starting to feel a little better, a little more positive and a little more productive, fingers crossed this lasts as I have a ton of plans for the New Year and will be so mad at myself if I let things slide again like I have recently.  So stay tuned for more furniture fix-ups and decor delights, I will also be starting to share some of my joy at discovering the Happy Planner 🙂

Thanks for your continuing support folks, you guys rock!

    Well done Kell, it’s bloody hard at our age to quit long standing habits!
    You will feel the benefits, eventually….so will your family 😉 once you stop being irritated by everything! xxRia

  2. Ahhhh! I’ve missed seeing your posts! Can’t wait for the next reveal. I hope all the best in regards to your quitting smoking.

  3. Congratulations! Quitting anything is never easy, you should be proud. Getting over the physical and emotional break-up with cigarettes is a real thing. You will get your groove back and I bet it will be more dazzling than before.
