|A few from July's Instagram.|
This morning, I wrote myself a crazy, massive to-do list and August is all about ticking it off.
The biggest goal is to get caught-up with One Little Word, get back in touch with my word and re-focus the journey it's taking me on.
The rest of the list is made up with small yet significant things. Ordering canvases, varnishing paintings and finishing off little, pushed-aside, projects are all on the list.
This month, will also see me rounding-up Creative Flashback.
Creative Flashback has proven to be a huge creative outlet. Re-visiting all those childhood favourites has been such a treat and there's definitely a couple which I will continue to do again and again. There's two more posts in the pipelines and then I'll be ready for it to move aside and allow room for something new. I'm sure the odd #creativeflashback post will pop up on the blog, from time to time, so please do continue to share your own creative childhoods with me.
More important then any to-do list, is of course William. The Summer holidays are now in full swing and I have my boy at home every day of the week. We have a holiday booked for September, so we've made no plans for August. I'm sure there will be the odd day out, family visit and play date but I'm not interested in filling our calendar with endless dates and activities. For me, Summer was all about being lost in an adventure, made with your own imagination, and mingled with the odd bout of boredom. It was about finding joy in your own interests, discovering a few new ones and cherishing that little bit of extra freedom. That's exactly what I want for William.
So, here's to a month of long summer days, re-focus, and looking forward to our first, family holiday.
Wishing everybody the best of summers.
