It's been a while since I posted.
And the longer it's been, the harder it's been to get back into things.
I feel the need to apologise.
To justify my absence.
I would feel somewhat odd just picking up and starting again where I left off some 7 months ago without acknowledging my rather sudden departure from the online world.
But to over-share is neither necessary, nor desirable.
So I thought maybe a meme would be the way to go, to let me kick things off again.
And as it happens, the lovely Craft Revival is giving us the opportunity to portray ourselves in all our inglorious glory.
It's about putting aside the photoshopped, magazine-ready images, and talking about the reality of our daily lives.
Perfect! (in its imperfection)
So a while ago, I decided to get all organised and set up some lovely spaces for our little boy. A beautiful creative space for art and crafts; and a quiet chill-out space for reading and puzzles.
So this was the 'ideal', the space as I dreamed it.
And this is the reality. How it looks today.
Such is life. Such is our life. But really, it isn't that bad.
In fact, I think the reality might be rather lovely, particularly when seen from the perspective of a three year old.
And so we're back :-)
