I know it's been a few days since I've posted, but this week has just been one of those weeks that I've needed to go into 'couch potato' mode. Work has been a pain. Call it a combination of the few sun rays driving me to distraction, couple that with a huge drop in motivation - and that more or less sums up the state of play. I've had two re-writes to do, and am now so far behind that I've got about seven features to complete in 3 days. Should be fun, right? Now the Ms Quiche of 2007 would have instinctively taken all her work home and slave over the computer during the nights until I caught up. But the '2000- and Great' version has now come to the realisation that doing this as a regular practice is counter-productive. Not only will my work suffer in quality, but sleep deprivation inevitably leads to short temperaments and stink moods. My motto last year was to spend less time chasing money and ambition, and more time enjoying life and chilling with my family. And you know what, - it actually works. I'd probably be no more richer or successful if I was burning the candles on a nightly basis, so why bother? Instead this week I've been coming home, eating good food and drinking good wine, and hanging out with my son and my fiance. I've also had some time to do a bit of reading. I've got the new issue of Psychologies ready and waiting to be devoured and I have finally got round to reading Beauty Blogger, Tia Williams', debut novel 'The Accidental Diva'. Life couldn't be better right now. I urge you all to join me in this state of laziness... C'mon, I promise not to tell.

- I am a thirty-something African Caribbean female from South East London. My blog will shine a light on Black British culture offering the best in entertainment, fashion, beauty, community, film & music, with the occasional personal musing thrown in from yours truly. Thank you for taking out the time to peek into the pages of my diary. Now grab a cup of cocoa, relax and enjoy.
