Restarting the habit of blogging...

It has been six months since I blogged. Having been out with my good pal Kathy (Purple Princess Diaries) yesterday, she pointed out that my blog was being neglected. It feels right to restart using it at this moment in time. However, I am, as usual, unclear about how well this will go. I love reading other blogs and am in awe of the creativity and lives that others live. I am not sure of how to use my own blog at the moment. I used to love using pictures and including bits and bobs from my attempts at crafting.

I may be over thinking this and should probably just dive in and start...

At the moment I am loving listening to First Aid Kit's 'Stay Gold' album and am taking some lyrics to drive me forward:
"I don't want to wait anymore I'm tired of looking for answers/ take me some place where there's music and there's laughter/ I don't know if I'm scared of dying but I'm scared of living too fast, too slow/ regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I've got to go/ there's no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on/ and you've just gotta keep on keeping on..." If you want to listen go here.

This blog is I think me just keeping on keeping on...

Yesterday, as I said, Kathy and I had a day out. We visited the lovely Pink Tulip shop in Studley.
We had a great morning and were looked after and we did a little shopping of course...

My has been a while since I purchased anything!

We then had lunch at The Oak in Upton Snodsbury - absolutely yummy and relaxed. Check them out here. We can highly recommend the food, especially the desserts with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice-cream, Kathy had the waffles and I had the brownie.

Today has been a stay at home morning playing with some of the products. I have managed to finish Week 12 DLP - yes I am that far behind! They are on week 31 eek. 

Coming into focus...

 Loving the Visible Images butterfly.

I am also enjoying the Mindfulness Colouring Book by Emma Farrarons. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are keeping on keeping on...

  1. That was hardly "a LITTLE shopping" mate!!! It was a rather lovely way to spend a day and with craft loveliness to show for it too. FAB lunch and great company, thank you so much.

    I see you have deployed that gorgeous butterfly AND your new die too, on your fab layout - looks great.

    Hope your little one hasn't worn out her new flip flops!
