Well, what a summer. Overall it was a lovely time, and we have all had a proper break. I haven’t worked for six weeks and the kids had a great holiday. At one point I sprained my foot and had to mostly sit and rest for a week. It has been a long time since I have done that.
And now the kids have gone back to school and it is time for me to get back to work!
Hopefully that will mean that I have time to get back to blogging again. I really want to start writing again, we have had some real trials at times this summer and I know that sharing helps me get through. Instagram has been great for that, but nothing really compares with tapping it all out onto a page and just letting it all go. It really is one of the best things I can do for myself.
I know a lot of people feel the same as me, that September is a great time for a new start. I never really make resolutions in January. But this time of year I feel like I am starting a fresh page, that this is the start of the next year. This year that is completely reinforced by going back to college and starting my second year of my City and Guilds. I have done a bit of work over the summer but I still have a fair amount to complete and I am looking forward to having the time to get stuck in.
This week I will share some of the things that I have done over the summer – I have been taking part in Xanthe Berkeley’s Make Films course so will show you what I have made.
I have been guest posting so I will share that with you too.
And I have been drawing all summer so I will also write a post about my Sketchbooks.
When I haven’t blogged for so long I often wonder if people are still reading. I hope that they are, and even if they are not this is a great place to collect everything about my life and it does me good to keep doing that. I just have to make the time.
