I am relieved to say that I pushed past that mental battle by the third week.... but it meant that I have had to work through weekends and also at odd hours - 'til 1am sometimes - to finish that first batch of work.
So this week it was lucky there happened to be a break in the production schedule. Technically there was still some fixups to be done, but Tim and I REALLY needed a week off from the work before getting the second batch next week.
I tried to recharge and recouperate - I managed to do an impromptu sketch trip to the zoo with Tim Thursday, great life drawing session Monday night, Dinner with Tim's siblings Tuesday night, unfortunately haven't really made a dent with clearing floorspace and organising things after moving out of my bedroom, but had THE BEST breakfast ever (the vegetarian lot) at Little John St Cafe in Cottesloe with one of my closest friends today, watch Kung Fu panda 2 in 3D and actaully liked it and felt inspired to work afterwards, I've been catching up on sleep getting to bed by 11pm and waking up at 9.30am, but somehow I am coming down with sinus headaches, runny nose, and an itchy (but not yet sore) throat these last few days. So lots of hot chicken broth with parsely, ginger, chillie, and garlic, and more sleep. And ugg boots and puffy bomber jackets hoping the symptoms won't progress any further.
