That's the sound of me breathing out after weeks and weeks of hectic rush and more than a weeny bit of stressy nervous tension. Much like last year, I am finding myself in recovery and taking my sweet, slow time to acclimatise to Life-After-Yarndale. It's like I need to re-learn how to slow down, how to stop fretting, how to relax, how to just be normal again.
But OHMYGOSH, what a fantastic, amazing, exhilarating, exhausting, exciting, WONdErFul weekend we had, it was just b-r-i-l-l-i-a-n-t. I had such a lot of fun!
Today I took some much needed time out, a luxurious day spent alone with J, walking our children to school along the misty canal, then off out of town for a walk in the glorious Yorkshire countryside. The weather was perfection - warm, clear and bright, the perfect mix of Summer and Autumn. We pootled along the river at Bolton Abbey, stopping for coffee and cake sat outside in the morning sunshine. It was such a tonic and I feel I am almost (almost) back to my normal upbeat, happy-cheery self. Ready to get back to my studio, back to this precious blog-space, back to some fun and colourful crochet. Life is good. Life is G♥O♥O♥D!
ps will share lots more about Yarndale with you next week, I've got lots to show you! x
