Just recently I had some lovely comments from some very kind people, and it left me thinking should I share a little bit more about myself on these little blog pages of mine? So if anyone does decide they want to flick through my thoughts and adventures - they can at least get to know the girl behind the blog a little better!
I've touched on a few things as I've typed away these last 8 months - Golly how time flies! - but only just scratching the surface. So, maybe a little more calm and a little more writing on the matter of who I am, is called for here!
Here is a little of my story so far . . . When I started to blog and write ~
In the recent, wonderful adaptation of 'Cinderella' - beautiful Lily James steps out of the carriage and is overwhelmed by the radiant castle before her.

I'm sure many blog readers, writers, creatives, book lovers out there would agree with me if I said, ' Isn't it lovely having something of your very own, to throw your thoughts down on and splash with every colour of your life . . .'
I of course mean blogging! When I stumbled across this intricate, warm and accepting world of writing and creating I didn't really expect to have a go at joining in. I really wanted to. But part of me lacked courage and the other part, know - how!!
One whole year (and a bit) in, and I'm doing it. I'm writing and keeping a blog that I've made and designed in an image that feels 'homey' and 'true to me' and it's real. It's out there. And it's such a special part of my life.
There are many reasons it's become special to me . . . I've always loved writing and to discover this kind of outlet was a wonderful thing . . . but I think one of the main reasons it's struck such a chord with …
When poorly ness takes hold, do
try not to fight it. Try not to force yourself to be better than you're ready to be. Simply be gentle. Breath calmly. Accept. And just hang on and wait for the storm to pass . . It always will.

I have come to know migraines very well. I can't help but think it's my mind and bodies way of saying 'please listen' . . . From now on I'm going to try and follow the gentle, kind advice of caring others, I must trust that it is safe to do so. I don't have to work to please anyone anymore, I'm designing the life I love and the people in it now are helping me sketch it to be one of comfort, resurrance and happiness.
Time to let go . . . Hopefully as I do the anxiety migraines will too . . .
Just awaiting now my internal storm to steadily pass . . .
Much love to everyone for a weekend of wellness and summer moments . . .
