Hi there! Glad you found me. Some of you may know that my life is no bed of roses but in amidst the tragedy there are truly beautiful moments. I've wanted to make the best of those moments for so long, and to help me I've decided to journey back and explore what makes me feel, think and behave the way I do. Hopefully I'll begin to understand more about me and begin to find more peace

This isn't a challenge blog but if you fancy joining me on my journaling journey, I'll leave a linky so you can post your thoughts.

Here's wishing you special moments in time

A little birdie told me!

I thought I'd try my hand at drawing a few different birds whilst I was on home leave over the weekend, big mistake! This is about the fourth attempt and it too would have been forcibly propelled into the bin if I had not given up on the idea of drawing at all!

I don't suppose it is so bad but I'm getting frustrated with this drawing lark when I can't draw what's in my head! Still if my head is full of things that need drawing, there is little room left for descending into madness - honest!

That said, my weekend at home was ok. There were times when the urge to end it all became almost too much to bear and that part was a fight all weekend. In contrast I LOVED being able to do whatever I wanted to do whenever I wanted to do it! I ran out of ink for the printer in the early hours on Saturday morning and just got into the car, drove the 10 miles to the nearest supermarket and drove back home again. A quick snooze and a cuppa later, and I was able to carry on printing and crafting.

I also LOVED my memory foam mattress and down duvet and thoroughly enjoyed the warmth and comfort of it! Had a lovely visit from my brother and watched a film with my son and his girlfriend.

So on the whole I think it was a positive weekend and the forecast for this week could be mainly dry with occasional sunshine in the north with the odd spot of rain falling down the face throughout the week.
Hope you have a sunshiny week
X Michelle

Ah bless you hun I wondered how you were getting along. The drawing is beautiful and I'm glad it didn't end up in file 13 (the bin), I can never draw what I have in my head LOL! I'm sorry that things got a bit much at times, but I'm glad you had time to enjoy your own space and do things you wanted to do when you wanted to do it fab stuff! Hope this week is good for you thinking of you lots.

Hugs

I think your wren looks wonderful! I am useless at drawing anything from memory - I need a photo or picture to copy from! Glad to hear you had a visit home with some good moments - there is nothing quite like our own beds is there?! Big hugs, hun x

That bird is far too beautiful to go in the bin!! You should see my drawings - my 7 year old grand-daughter can draw better than me (and colour in better too!!)
Keep up the good work.
