MONTHLY VOICE: APRIL

 

Here is the Monthly Voice for April; what we’ve been up to and some things we are really loving at the moment. Plus why I am so tired, and what I am doing about it...

Well, I don’t know about you but April seemed to pass by pretty quickly in our house. And, so I find myself here again writing the Monthly Voice. Last month saw our kitchen renovations get under way, there was all the fun of the Easter holidays, and I was also busy with some writing work, and putting together The Slow Living Retreat  – which I am hoping will be finished by the end of May.

I actually only managed to post here twice throughout the whole month, and I feel like I have had my head down a bit and been really trying to focus on specific things. Even with the Easter Holidays, and less blogging, I am craving rest, rest, rest at the moment so I am trying to honour that and really listen to my body. As we all know, we are all pretty good at putting pressure on ourselves, so that is easier said than done.

It’s great to be able to finally finish a few pieces off. I get such enjoyment from having a play like this, and taking some photos of what I have made. For me this is just as much fun as the making itself.
