It’s definitely been one of those weeks.
Far from easy on too many counts.
It’s been two years since the children’s Nana Window’s passed. There’s been melancholy, reflection and hugs.
I still don’t know how much the children ‘get it’, they are so resilient and also choose the most surprising times and acts to remember her. They make me so proud.
It’s been a week where compassion and gratitude have been brought to the fore.
Two words to which I need to pay a lot more attention.
So, in a muddled week, here are my Little Loves:
It’s still all about journals and books. I’m on my last module of the academic year and I’m having a love-hate relationship with the subject area. It’s really interesting, but I’m struggling to link it with my proposed thesis.
In a fit of rage against Sky we cancelled our subscription. Unfortunately it’s transpired we don’t get Virgin and our broadband doesn’t cope with our devices and streaming Netflix.
So now we have to plan our tv and watch real time, like in olden days. I doubt this is going to last and we’ll have to kiss and make up with Sky.
My love of Spotify continues and I have discovered the Release Radar which has been great on train journeys.
I’m now finding music I’ve not heard before, which I enjoy. I feel so much better.
I feel like it’s a transition period and I’m having to plan what I wear as typically the weather in South Wales is the opposite of what I’m greeted with when I arrive in London. So I’m in maxi-skirt mode most days, I need a few more and am really struggling to find ones to suit.
To be a cliché, we found bluebell woods! I was lucky enough to win a photo shoot with Sweet Whimsy Photography. So at the weekend we headed to Wenallt Woods. These are some of the photos I took but I’m so looking forward to seeing Donna’s.
