A glass half full kind of morning
It's a grey, wet day here today and I felt the need for pretty.
I felt the need for some calm amongst the chaos
Some peace amongst the piles of paper,
and the angst filled evenings fuelled by the oncoming weeks of exams.
The brighter quilts have been replaced today by softer hues
My sewing has been discarded whilst I play with some pretty threads.
My mug of tea sits to one side whilst I tinker with some pretty china.
I decide not to notice the sticky tape mark on the top of this old tin
To admire some beautiful old handwriting and remember how glad I am not to be back at school...
In short, I take some time to smell the roses.
