Winter is well and truly here, the sun is much lower in the sky, we’ve had a few frosty mornings, and the mittens are out. It was such a beautiful Autumn this year, full of gloriously warm and sunny days, but it seemed to be over really quickly. Winter always feels like a big adjustment when it arrives, and I’m never quite ready to say goodbye to the golden days of Autumn. At least all the festivities of December provide the opportunity for joy and twinkly moments for the first of the Winter months. I actually really like the depths of Winter, once I get used to the cold and remember to wear my thermals and an extra jumper.
Here’s the Monthly Voice for October and November, including some exciting news about an upcoming online retreat, plus I reflect on how I’m doing with my word for 2017 ‘ease’, and as always a round up of what we’ve been up to and what’s been an inspiration this month…
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.
Here is the Monthly Voice for April; what we’ve been up to, why I am so tired, and some things we are really loving at the moment.
