I must be bonkers!

As I sit here with several layers of clothing, including a woolly hat and fingerless gloves, I wonder if I must be a bit bonkers. Because who in their right mind takes on a studio space in Lancashire in an old spinning mill in December?  It is cold, but it is my first studio space since my MA, and it does feel like it is a good move. I love my space at home, but it was so easy to become distracted by all the other things I could be doing instead of what I should be doing. And I do miss the interaction with other humans that you just don’t get if you work from home 100%. So here I am, I must keep moving or my back gets cold. I pay extra for heating and lighting in my space, luckily the skylights allow wonderful light during the day. I wonder how hot it will be in the Summer. Oh well let’s not get ahead of myself, it’s only 10th December, I have to stay alive a few months before I need to worry about how hot the space will be in the Summer! And I am still getting used to the routine, so I have a few days of pages to catch up on. Thank you if you are still with me, it has been an odd year, and it almost seems like there should be another month as this year has spun past so fast I am sure we have missed a month somewhere along the way.
