Oh August. You exhaust me. Are you feeling it? That deep deep down to your bones tired?

I can feel apathy creeping on in and I'm counting down the days until I can take a good, sustained break.

It'll come. It really will.


  1. Have followed your lovely blog for a long time. Not commented much before, but this short post has hit the nail on the head for me this month!!! I am with you with knobs on. I am to the bone tired, and want some r&r.

  2. feeling it fo sure.. and my feet hurt. As you were.

  3. Em, August just about does me in every year, I posted similar sentiments myself just yesterday. I'm longing for Summer days and light clothing...and NO MORE bloody sickness, because of course, August seems to always bring that too :/ xo

  4. Sounds like you need a gin o clock! Kicks my tired to the bones ass in to shape every time :)

  5. Today feels like spring here in Melbourne. When the magnolias are flowering and the sun's out, you know the better days aren't far off. That, and I've got a sick desire to set up the laundry properly and do loads of washing??!!

  6. I'm feeling it too and hoping that break isn't too far away. xx

  7. I am really impressed by the way you handle your family + work developping BT (fantastic clothes and I LOVE that you have "real people" in view here, such a mamas with an actual belly, thighs and a bottom for instance!) and organizing your blog with your writings and all those great guests you have here.
    Seriously, you rock.
    You inspire me.
    Thank you!
    (and i hope this massive dose of love and awe from the other side of the world will help August pass just like a breeze)

  8. Hang in there Em, everything eventually passes.
    Perhaps a drive through Dan Murphy's might help ;)


Thanks so much for your words of encouragement, advice and solidarity.
