here i am...

Hello people!!!

I have finally returned to this place which I used to love so much and it's about time I showed it some attention I think! I have missed all my blogging pals so much! My cunning plan was to leave it until the beginning of May and then it might have looked like there was no break given a short glance!!! Except for all that has happened in the space of a year... things that now seem as though I could have dreamt them. But that's for another time.

I had the best day yesterday.

The sun was shining and it felt so warm against my skin. I wasn't the only one enjoying it, the birds were singing and a lovely friend sat with me for a while and we had a cup of tea and shared some chocolate. I spent part of the day in the garden painting some old bookshelves a nice new colour for my workroom. I'll show you a before and after sometime soon.

Major excitement!!!
I found out that one of my necklaces had been featured on the front page of etsy!!! That's never happened to me before and it was so exciting. It was this one.

Anyway, I will leave you with a link to a program on the bbc iplayer which had me totally engrossed yesterday. Oh how I'd love to go to Japan on a quest to find the meaning of wabi sabi... it's available for the next 4 days... take a look if you have chance.

Bye for now :-)
