Are you ever so tired that you barely make it into your bed with zero care of the world? These days all I crave is good soup or hot chocolate, bed and a book. To say ‘I’m exhausted’ is an understatement – delirious is more like it.
Setting goals is crucial, but being realistic is key – I am my own enemy when it comes to being a critic. I’m lenient, appreciating and forgiving to everyone else but myself. Kitchen Therapy blog started as an outlet to tend to my writer’s block dilemma. It’s now my platform, a sort of “office” for potential clients to “see” me. If I don’t post regularly, I’m upset and angry with myself. When I realise I should not be. It’s okay to slow down, take a break, not pick up the phone or return texts. It’s okay to say no if its physically, mentally or emotionally exhausting you. It’s okay to switch off.
So while I take a much needed 10-day break, here’s a scrumptious tea cake – old fashioned, ladled with butter, a burst of fresh orange juice, a layer of cinnamon and oats streusel in the centre, which goes lovingly well with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, ice cream, whipped cream… or just on it’s own.
