    I've had this wool on my needles for weeks, slowly being knitted into a headband to hold my dreads out the way. And finally it's finished!!!

    My knitting skills aren't great, knit one, purl one is about all I can manage, so I'm wondering how many things I can make out of simple, straight pieces of knitting LOL

    Live a passionate life

    Embrace each day as if it were the lst. Follow your heart and dream big. Live consciously and enthusiastically with your focus on what you can bring to the moment. Life is precious. Each heartbeat is a gift. Allow care, compassion, empathy, understanding, forgivesness, generosity, and kindness to guide your decisions, actions and life.

    One year of love

    Happy Birthday Baya! I can't believe that you are 1 already. It doesn't seem possible that it's a whole year since I first held you in my arms, 3 weeks earlier than we'd expected.

    It's been a wonderful year, and you've made our family complete (for now ;-) ) You have two very excited sisters this morning who seem to think now you're 1 you'll be able to walk and talk properly!

    You are such a sweet chilled little baby, happiest when you're with your big sisters, them making you giggle or bouncing with you on the trampoline.

    Hope you have a lovely day sweetie

    Mummy x x

    lastest painting

    Here's what kept me busy last night, and reminded me how theraputic painting is...

    I'm back!!!

    I hadn't meant to leave it so long between posting, but the last couple of weeks have been tough. I've barely been keeping my head above water. But I'm feeling a little more positive now, and hopefully I'm coming out the otherside of my despair.

    I've been doing lots of journaling the last few weeks, but not much painting/crafting - always a sign I'm not coping. This week however I've felt the return of my mojo ;-) After a very stressed morning yestereday I decided to spend half an hour painting when Baya was having a nap. I'd forgotten how theraputic painting is for me - so spent another hour last night working on it!! Should hopefully be finished today if I get half an hour to myself.

    I'm busy planning for at the weekend, then it's Baya's 1st birthday on Tuesday (where did that come from??) and my birthday the week after!

    I also have a couple of plans for my blog - having seen the ideas on hula seventy, I'm going to do 52 random lists - one a week, and also a post of 29 things to do before I'm 30 (ssssh, don't say that outloud tho).

    I shall be back... in the next couple of days I promise x x
