Yesterday was just a lovely day, I made a trip up to an old water mill just outside Kendal. A lovely place in itself, made even more beautiful by a collection of like minded people enjoying chatting, looking and making. Sometimes it is nice just to sit in a nice place and just relax. The birdsong was meditative, and for a short while, allowed me to find a peaceful and happy corner of my mind. Exploring the mill and taking in its inspirational collections was just wonderful, so too was catching up with old friends and making new ones. Even got some rhubarb to bring home to share. What more could I need.
I have an interview today. I haven’t had an interview for a very long time, I might need a strong cup of tea. It also requires a drive into the depths of Manchester, so wish me luck! Sense of direction is not one of my strong points .
Well at least I completed yesterdays collage, and started todays. If I make it back from Manchester I may even get time to finish and post another, who knows.
Action packed week this week, work, supporting a dance festival and attending a memorial rugby match . Who says life’s boring ! Sadly a trip to London had to be re-arranged, but with the London Marathon happening perhaps it was better to change when we go. And I can still look forward to it in a couple of weeks so all is not lost. Happy Sunny St Georges Day .
Some days you feel like you are winning, others the world seems to be conspiring against you. Other times, and that’s today its all a whirlwind of choices and decisions, there’s no way I can please everyone, so, do you know today I am pleasing me. I am making choices for me, and if that’s not going to please everyone , so be it. No one will be hurt or insulted, they will just have to do things at a different time. Well there is always tomorrow even if there is a general election .
Oh and how rude to have a general election on my day without asking !
For the first time this Eastertime I have felt distinctly odd about the Easter celebrations. I do celebrate Christmas, well I give presents to people and sometimes cards, if I remember. But this Easter has just made me question the whole notion of celebrating a religious festival I feel little connection to. Its not as if its marking something nice. Well its not done much good in making me keep up to date with my posts, lets hope things get better as the week progresses, I have my doubts .
Sometimes it rains, and rains, and rains and I feel glum. It is strange how the weather can affect our mood. With blue skies and no rain my mood is often lifted. Today though, the cold wet rain seems intent on making my mood slope downwards . However with lots of things that need my attention in doors , perhaps the rain is helping me focus on things I need to get done , and maybe that is helping me to stay as bright as a sunny summers day. Well we will see how I get on , here are the last two collages, hopefully there will be another later on . Or maybe the sun will shine and alter plans again.
Wednesdays collage influenced by the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. And Thursdays influenced by trying to get my mood more balanced and calm.
12 Years working in an environment where the day was punctuated with bells directing you to work, drink, work, eat, work, go home. Has done nothing to help me prepare for being in control of my days. One day seems to flow into another, and each set of days into a week… I have never been able to truly understand time, while some days take more time than they should , others spiral past at a rate even Bannister would be proud of . Well here we are catching up posting my collages.
Well it started out another sunny Sunday. So nice when the sun shines and it coincides with the weekend, so many more people are able to enjoy the sun. Unless of course you decided to try and drive somewhere.
Inspired by the sun but brought into reality when I pricked my finger on the needle and decided to ignore it .
Some days are better than others, some last forever, and some are over in a flash. Today has been an odd one. Moments have come and gone, some parts of the day I feel I have achieved masses . Then now at the end of the day I wonder what more could I, should I ?have done.
