Today feels very peaceful - or I feel at peace - not sure which really, but it is lovely. My Dad has got back from his enforced stay in France, so I've decided we are going to see him later. Build bridges.
I can hear the birds singing, the tractors and combine harvesters working all hours, the bin men emptying the recycling boxes, the odd car on the main road - it's peaceful.
Three of my boys are in bed - one off a night shift, two from a late evening out at the beach having a barbegue in the rain with our fellow vw club members - the other is sat on my knee having cuddles and helping with this post.

I have made the felt food and bag that has been on my list for months - it was not needed until next month but I really should have done it before now. It feels good to have it finished (and delivered). I have made lavender sugar after reading it on a blog somewhere (can't remember where, but thank you to whoever you are).
It is good at this moment - I will try and remember this feeling later when it's not quite so peaceful ;0).

Gorgeous makes! Have you tried positive affirmations? Whilst you feel like this press your thumb and forefinger together and remember this time, feeling, sounds, calm. Do that again a few times and when you feel a bit stressed press your thumb and finger together again and the feelings come back, it is fab!

The lavender sugar sound (and looks) great. The little felt carrots are so cute as well!
Glad you have some peace and quite to relax. :)

I really like the look of that bag with the felt food in it - really simple but beautiful. Glad you found some peace and contentment - hope you can stay with it. xxx
