On Thursday night I had a dream about lots of things but one was about a purple envelope but I couldnt read my name and address on it properly. Look what I came home to on Friday afternoon. My surname is spelt completely incorrectly and she just couldn't remember my address and had to hand deliver it. The letter was just from a friend but how spookily accurate was my dream.
Coloured shot glasses, cake stand and necklaces
The beautiful colours of these glasses and beads have really captured my eye today.
They are grouped together in a collection on table in my sitting room.
Pink roses from the children
As you know, the tag line on my blog is 'Lets go fly a kite'. I googled that in a dream dictionary and it said the following, which I really liked:-
To dream that you are flying a kite indicates that you are well-grounded despite your high aspirations and goals in life. You will reap the benefits of your hard work and determination regardless of the challenges faced in your current task. On the other hand, to dream of a kite may also epitomize your spiritual or innocent consciousness.
I love this time of year, catching up with friends and their children. Last year was pants thanks to my ex husband's antics. This year I intend to have a flipping marvellous holiday with the children ,their friends and my friends. There is loads of hard work to fit in around it all too but I am definitely in a mood to accomplish things now rather than tread water.
Taking photos and blogging I am hoping will return on a much more regular basis to my life. Jasper tripped though whilst carefully carrying my camera around his neck and broke the lens on my lovely camera so I am borrowing one at the moment.
Shall I make a date to see you again tomorrow. I think I should set that goal.
On my birthday last year I made this watch on the beach in Cornwall. Life was normal then. Now, beautifully supported by friends I meander through life. It is exciting and challenging. I looked at the time on the watch, poignant as at 4.15 pm I had done a facebook post and was being pinged the most lovely comments and encouragement.
May be my new house will look like this.
May be I will grow peonies.
or both. Any which way, there is so much love, beauty, excitement and friendship to be experienced and cherished. Who knows where the path of my new life will lead? x
It is grey outside and there seems to be no sign of those brilliant bright sunshine days we sometimes get in January. However, I am greatly cheered by the appearance of fresh spring flowers. Louise bought me this lovely bunch of perfumed hyacinths, sunshine yellow tulips and stunning anenomes.
I am also loving candlelight. The soft glow is just so soothing.
I am back at mosaic class which is just brilliant therapy chatting with the other lovely ladies who are all so funny and interesting.
I am working on my photography and how to promote myself. I am determined that this year I can organise my life and create a COMPELLING FUTURE!

Last night I went to Made 09 in Brighton. It was great to be in such a vibrant arty space with such talented artists and makers.
I was given some lovely daffodils by a very special friend. I have always found daffodils to be such a happy flower.
When all this recent experience of mine kicked off I put many things away. I now know I did not want to associate bad memories with my lovely, lovely things. I am just beginning to bring things back out again.
Today I got out my flower book so the children can turn the pages every day like we used to. A new flower and a new inspiration every day chosen by them.
I have always worn lots of silver bangles but I no longer wear my old ones. Last night I bought two new bangles as a start to my new collection. It felt good.
By the way this happened too:-
I have always felt very safe in my house and am trying to maintain that feeling as yesterday some bugger walked in to my front garden and pinched my locked bicycle. I have never had anything taken from the front garden and it has always been full of kids toys, bikes, mosaics and general beach paraphernalia.
This is Spencer, the cat, climbing over my bike in the summer. There is obviously some plonker cycling around looking really butch with a flowery bicycle basket. If you see him/her do me a favour and clip them with your wing mirror!
