So over the last week I've been taking daily photos in the lovely garden in my new house; some I've been sharing on instagram and some have just been sitting merrily on my phone. It's been a great exercise to slow right down and really notice the little details around my garden - the rain drops, the different colours, the old blooms and new buds. The few below that didn't make it onto instagram are actually my favourites from after a big rain the other day:
A very kind person asked me by email the other day what had happened to the rest of my blog - and to be honest it's just too painful for me to see at the moment. It's still in existence - I've just reverted all my old posts to draft for now. It does make me a bit sad to realise that I can't comfortably look over all those times with my family without associating it with my anorexia, but cest la vie. One day I will be able to separate my sadness about the eating disorder from the happy memories with my children - but not today. It's still too fresh. I'm still mourning in a way. Time heals all however.
So what's on for this week? I've been playing a lot (as usual) on pinterest - ahhhhh pinterest how I love you and your pretty ways - and pinning lots of cool hama bead photos. Who knew people could do such clever things with hama beads?! I actually think hama bead art looks quite therapeutic too (as long as the kids don't bump me - I foretell tears if that happens, lol!!). So watch this space for some hama therapy ;-)
