Day off

As important as all the work is, it's also important to stop sometimes, take a deep breath and regenerate.

So last Thursday this is exactly what we did.

Me and Other Half packed up enough of our things to weather a nuclear holocaust and took daughter on a trip to the beach at Dawlish Warren. Between the train and the beach we picked up a small beach tent, which was the best investment of the day as the wind was chilly even though the sun was warm.

There were sandcastles made...

...and kites flown...

as well as a short moment in time when OH actually took a picture of me that came out decent.

All in all, we had a marvelous day and hope to be able to do it again soon!

And now the schools have started again, which is a relief, and life can start to assume some kind of normality. My studio is finished and I have managed to do a little itty bit of work, although with there still being work to do around the building I feel guilty whenever I do something for myself... Hopefully this feeling will gradually go away and I can go back to enjoying making things and helping out with things. Finding the balance between the two is the hard part...


  1. This sounds like a great day :)

    I love the photo of your husband and your daughter. The tags are so cute!

  2. You look amazing, it's been so long since I last saw you! Your work is fabulous too, I seem to have lost some confidence in getting mine 'out there'. xxx
