I won't lie to you...some days, being a mum to 2 teenage girls, along with their mood swings, can get me down. Today began much like any other. I drove the girls to school, and instead of driving straight back home like I usually do, I parked the car and went for a walk...I love to discover new places to walk, and after half an hour or so, I managed to find myself on a very quiet, bushy street...I felt the tension melting away.
After an hour of walking, I returned to where my car was parked, and treated myself to a latte in a favourite cafe - by now, I was feeling much better.
When I got home, I prepared the slow cooker (I can smell it as I type - Moroccan beef - it smells delicious).
Now some days, I have a tendency to get 'stuck'. I have all of these creative ideas swirling about my head, but often that's where they stay...infuriating, I know.
So, I put some 'new age' music on, turned on my fairy fountain, got out the paints, and set up out on my back deck.
I found an old pair of shoes in my wardrobe that I had bought for a few bucks years ago for a fancy dress. Armed with my sharpie pen and some paints, I went to town...
There's nothing like being creative outside in my garden to return myself back to me, if you know what I mean...these little beauties were such fun to do...tomorrow I buy the dyes and begin embellishing all the slips and camisoles I have been collecting...hmmm....we'll see if that happens, he he.
