Sometimes you just need to slow down

I don’t know about you but sometimes I get so tied up in (making money) work I forget to enjoy life. It maybe another birthday passing but I have felt it more this year than any other. I just need to remember to sometimes just say no to doing everything for everyone else and do things that are for me. Not in a selfish way, more in a looking after me kind of way. Today I visited a young student I am mentoring in Oldham. I have been doing this since January, every month. We meet in the library café in Oldham library and Art Gallery. It’s a great place and I have said every time I visited, I would have a look around the galleries, but never done it. So today I did. It was great and I would highly recommend popping in if you are ever in Oldham .

Today’s collage is partly made up from things I picked up on today’s visit, and partly thing from my stash.
