Let me say from the get-go that I am not convinced that I am a natural born blogger.
I started setting this blog up months ago and have been waiting for inspiration (or at least a lightning bolt) to strike...hmmm, still hasn't happened.
But it is a (rarely) rainy Sunday afternoon here, kids are amusing themselves (sort of) and I am feeling motivated (to avoid folding the washing)
So here I am.
My thoughts are to record my creative exploits, whether they be sewing, crocheting, cooking or whatever. I may also feel the need to rant every now and then (sorry). But we can see what evolves.
But today, I just want to share my happiness of life. It is nearly perfect (about 15 kg weight away from perfect lol) I have a loving and loved partner, 3 gorgeous kiddlywinks, we have good health, it is Autumn here (which I love; stunning red and yellow leaves everywhere) and I get to stay at home and create with what time I have left after looking after my family. I really need to create. I am frustrated if I can't.
The overwhelming feeling of appreciation for all that I have hits me every now and then, not often enough. I need to remember how lucky I am every day.
