<A lovely friend of mine, connected through Feng Shui, gave me an inspiring gift for Christmas, a desk calendar with a beautiful picture and inspiring sentence for every single day of the year. When I turned to the beginning of March it said ‘
This month I look around me and find the odds and ends that need to be put in order. This is an excellent time to clear clutter and complete old projects. I am making room to be ready for the new’.
For some reason – perhaps it was the pure blue sky and sun coming through the window – I felt it was time to pull out the proverbial finger and really get going.
The first thing that caught my attention was to remove old photos from the wall and make room for the new. I gave myself a couple of hours to choose some from the last few years that we could hang on the wall and enjoy – very therapeutic – I had a lovely time choosing, printing and framing them.
We also decided to make the most of the beautiful weather and went to our local National Trust Park, Dunham. The brilliant volunteers and gardeners have made the most beautiful winter garden there, thousands of snowdrops and the daffodils just starting to show. If you live near enough, do give yourselves a real treat.
