Is it just me......or are things on the change? I am sure I am not the only one to have felt the weight of indifference on my shoulders.......lack of motivation.......general slugishness.......of course, if it is just me then you'll be happy to read I'm announcing a full-stop! I'm not saying I've overnight turned into a cover model for some health and vitality magazine, or that I am about to be awarded 'Inspiration Guru of 2012'.....just that I feel a spark of anticipation.....not sure for what.....but hey, better than feeling lack-lustre.... un-sparkly!
Anyway, before I completely lose you.........I'm linking up with Planet Penny on the penultimate....
Reasons to be Cheerful
The weather has not been amazing this school hols, and actually as I type it is grey and rainy.......but on one of the nicer days this week, the boys, my mum and I went to feed the swans. After we came away, we passed many groups walking to where we had come from, laden with bags of bread.
(look at that huge wing just out of shot)
I have just acquired this lovely long shelf from my Mum and now have the perfect space to fit (some) of my fabrics and yarn..........there are boxes of things tucked away too, but this gives me something to be going along with. I do wonder if the recent spate of putting things away and organising has helped clear my mind a little too.
My third reason is that after holidaying for ten weeks in S.Africa, my in-laws are returning home (ssshhhhh....don't tell them about the weather!). There will be a big family get together which we are hosting at our house, with the chance to hear all their news. I love reason to look through cook books, plan courses and buy ingredients....not sure about the major clean-up that will come with it though! Maybe if I start now, I'll get some of it done........
If you want to see other Reasons for being Cheerful, why don't you head on over to Planet Penny's place!
Also, wanted to say a big thank you for your lovely supportive comments on my last post, you are all a lovely, wise old lot!
And to finish off..... (d'you know I just had a flashback to a school teacher who said you can't start a sentence with an 'And' and she was probably right!)........thanks so much to Whistle Stop Crochet, My House in Africa, Little things made with Love, Vintage Homespun, Hazel's Crochet and Stocki who all awarded me a Versatile Blogger award.........
