Life got in the way - I worked last week , it was really busy and I got tired - blogging went on hold as creativity did as well.
The paper mountain on the kitchen bench, the table, my bedside table - started to erupt and spill over - quite frankly it became overwhelming and was getting hard to ignore it until I had days off. I didn't get outside enough and I was getting grumpy and my 6 yr old was over it too.
Yesterday was Waitangi day - a public holiday here in NZ.
I sorted and filed the paper, I did several small jobs - painting around ceiling lights etc then forced Miss 6 out for a bike ride we both needed. When we got home all was good again - we had the tea party she wanted
We played with the new bed for the princess and her pea - made by Dad in the garage
I finally got around to framing and hanging some of her art. The warehouse had really cheap white frames a few weeks ago - so I hung her flower picture - first place in the spring flower show last year- my favourite of her paintings.
Along with a couple of her other pictures , next to a rose I painted when I was pregnant with her.
In my tired state last week, with messy house I had a big urge to sell and move to a bigger home - I even went as far as visiting an open home last Saturday - then I slept . On Sunday I looked around and reminded myself that what we have is good, that small is good. That small affords us part time work and great holidays. Tidying the art into frames helped but what I really need is a wardrobe purge and another dejunk all around - watch this space.
