    Brushes ready….

    The last couple of weeks have flown by.

    Organisation of more challenges is in hand. The reading continues. I am still on Gandhi’s autobiography though as got distracted by The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins! An absolutely fantastic read that I highly recommend. Only start it though when you don’t have any other deadlines as it will grip you from start to finish!

    I have also started on my number 8 challenge and am now on to a painting class. We have started with water colours which I think, from my perspective will take quite a bit of effort to master! So far we have learnt the basics of a landscape, painted a lemon and a pond of lilies (not yet finished). I will be moving on to acrylics in a couple of weeks time so I will let you know what happens with all that. Again I must say how much I enjoy doing something completely different. It is an excellent way of spending time and being mindful.

    As we have stepped in to spring I just love all of the flowers and blossom that surrounds us so taking time just to notice that and breathe it all in is a blessing. Whilst I am not a fan of the rain, I do love the changing seasons and spring is such a beautiful time of year when everything starts to bud and grow again.

    The dancing lessons that were mentioned in my last blog (!) are fast approaching so that will be something else I will report on next time (hopefully I will survive that with my dignity in tact).

    But in the meantime number 9 will be at the beginning of April as I am off to see Swan Lake at the Royal Opera House. The lovely Tanya is accompanying me to that event. I thought it a good cultural balance to her suggestion of the burlesque dancing!

    Always good to try new things and make the most of life and of each and every day. We never get them back after all.

    Have a great week and maybe think about something different you can do too?
