It is still just about morning here in sunny Pembrokeshire. I actually stayed in bed fairly late this morning, after 2 days of headaches and generally feeling rough. I usually get up early, but sometimes my body allows me to relax and I finished another chapter of my latest ‘read’, ‘Things That Matter …‘ by Joshua Becker (his YouTube channel is fantastic, if you are interesting in simplying your life).

After breakfast I tackled some much-needed housework, and now sitting down for ‘a rest’ before continuing. Our old Farmhouse is beautiful, but it definitely keeps me busy! I was expecting more rain today (it went over last night), so spent some time in the past 2 days getting the garden in better order. Our gardening mostly involves cutting out weeds/brambles and trimming the old plants/hedges. I did scatter some more wildflower seeds around, so in the next months we should see some pretty flowers. The worst job was removing the ivy that was determinedly climbing up the front of the house – very firmly stuck to the wall. As part of my necessary pacing, I just do a bit of gardening in each area throughout the week, before moving onto the next area, so everything is tidied monthly. The only way to keep on top of it without spending literally days out there.
Crafting has been low on my priority list this week. Our usual Tuesday Papercraft group was cancelled yesterday due to illness, so I haven’t got progress to show on the box project. However, on Saturday we did have the first of a regular crafty meet-up for members of the local Facebook group for those with Fibromyalgia. We were mostly all Silk Painting Beginners and it proved to be an enjoyable and relaxing craft. I am always amazed that there are plenty of crafts that I haven’t tried before! I used pens to complete this cute design, but paints were also used by others. The design is part of this kit – Woodland Animals.
Before I go, here is the cute dog I am walking for The Cinnamon Trust – Poppy. I take her out again on Friday.
We also did our annual visit to a local valley to see the bluebells. It is up on an ancient bridleway, which is used rarely, and we never see anyone else up there. A steep walk up and back, and I was suffering afterwards. However, it is a truly beautiful and peaceful place.
I look forward to visiting some blogs this week. Join in with this weekly blog hop at Stamping Ground.
Until next time.
