It's been an interesting few days for me and I've been thinking hard about things as usual. Another bout of illness helped with this as it meant I couldn't do much else other than sit up in bed... things have also been rather quiet as Rory is stuck in Dubai waiting for the ash cloud to blow away.
I have come to several interconnected decisions...
- I will spend more time in the garden, because it's lovely, and if I don't get out there and look after it, it won't be lovely anymore.
- I will stop moaning about not having any time to do art and get on with making something beautiful out of what life throws at me. I am needed to be a big part of my granddaughter's life, and whether I like this responsibility or not, it is mine. There is so much about it which is delightful and wonderful and I am in danger of missing that side of it if I am not careful (for which read, if I carry on moaning all the time).
- I will close my shop for the time being and concentrate on making for pleasure if time allows.
- I will take more exercise now that spring is here, it always makes me feel better and I have no excuses.
