Clocks took a step forward, I took a step back...

What a glorious day!! Wall to wall sunshine and it's only just got dark :O)
Today was full of lovely scenery on another fab walk in the countryside. Hubby and I took off to a local nature reserve and reservoir for a stroll in the sun (even got my arms out, that hardly EVER happens). We saw a huge heron, 2 grebes flirting on the water, 2 swans serenely swimming and sadly a squashed mouse :O(

On the way home we stopped in at a plant nursery for some seed potatoes and herblings for my newly dug veggie patch. I spent most of the late afternoon potting, trimming, digging and watering...bliss. Soap making is on the agenda for tomorrow, it doesn't get much better than this ;O)
I have told myself this is the first small step towards regular time out to relax, step off the treadmill of life and find the real me. One can only go hell for leather for so does nothing for ones creativity and inspiration. Pics will follow shortly...
Till next time ...


  1. Sounds like I need to follow these wise words.... it's been one helluva week here. I need to get a life too! (Caroline @Mint_to_be) ;-D

  2. Hi Caroline, I'm only just realising the value of being away from the hustle and bustle. Giving myself the time to do things that make me happy, i.e making soap and bath goodies and spending some quality time out doing whatever...never forget, time out chillin out is well spent :)
