One of those days

Yesterday was one of "those" days.  Started off ok but spiralled down as it went on.  The final straw was discovering I'd retrieved the wrong version of an essay I had written last week when the gas man blew the power in the house.  Sadly, although the wonderful Word autosave retrieved everything I'd been working on, my own inability to save different versions of the same file with recognisable names left me with a fair bit of work to do yesterday afternoon, when I'd been planning on having some fun.


At least I didn't have to deal with one of the "hurdles" in this pack of cards. 



As I try to complete the course of study I've been working on for the last six months, much "reflection" is required and I've found that my main weakness is an inability to rebound from failure.  Not only that, but I'm not very good at fitting my woolly, fluffy thoughts into neat little boxes on a computer screen.  Oh well, hopefully it will soon be done and I will be able to refer to myself as.....well, the same as always I guess!



Anyway, since January, I've been looking for a regular challenge to set myself.  I thought I'd found something online, but when one of the first prompts involved fairies, I knew it wasn't for me.  But Helen Suzanne blogger and fellow Artful Dodger proposed a weekly theme and I knew it would be far more my kind of thing.  So, this evening, I've been taking a fresh look at my blue chair.

Just the distraction I need to take my mind off behaviourist theory, the Johari window and other thoughts about the learning process.

Thing is, I just couldn't escape from those reflections.


At last!
