Serenity Now...

Deep breath. Feeling better? I don't know if it's because I'm tired of winter, or because I'm 40 but lately I've been feeling blah. I can't seem to muster the will to craft. I've been spluttering with a cold and cough that sounds as if I've been chain-smoking Vicounts. I've been getting way too many "Hey. You look tired" comments and at work, over the constant tapping of keyboards, you can here an orchestra of wheezing, sneezing and slobbering mingled with the smell of peeled mandarins and Vix Vapour Rub.

So. I'm taking a week off work to get my mojo back. I'm dusting out the craft-room, I'm going to trawl through my Japanese craft books and drink green tea. I've even booked a massage! I'm even going to go to gym EVERY day. I'm going to read heaps. Waiting to be cracked open is John Marsden's book, Hamlet, Ken Follett's
Pillars of the Earth
and let's not forget movies, and cooking and playing with the dog and catching up with friends and maybe even some crochet.

I'm looking forward to posting some pics of my new crafty adventures. I've been quiet on the blog of late but have been drawing masses of inspiration from Loobylu and Meet Me At Mikes and of course, Whip Up.

I can hardly wait.

I had to take a mental health few days not long ago and just to let you know, it really works. I hope your time goes as well as mine did.

Can't wait to see all the new crafting.
