I do find this time of the year hard. I find it difficult to resist the urge to hibernate - particularly when the weather is being unkind. Oh to curl up under a crochet blanket with a cat (or two) and feel my toes warm up.
And, this is also the time that shops, the internet and television start thrusting out festive adverts, chrimbly makes and bakes and it just feels too soon and too 'desperate' - is it just me or do you feel the same? I find am still mourning the loss of summer - albeit a bit of an insipid one this year.
Time to get myself back to full on 'arting and crafting' again - I usually feel a whole lot better when I am out in the studio making things - it is where I feel happiest - slipping into my own world, leaving the rest behind.
So, with coffee in hand, dog on feet and paints at the ready I find that this is the best cure-all for me :) Enjoy your day xxx
