This is the start of something new....I am going to attempt to run two "Art and Spirituality" workshops. Art is something I have found very helpful in understanding the incomprehensible. I get completely absorbed in art-making...time just disappears. I'd like to encourage other people to try it out as a way of connecting with deeper thoughts...hence the workshops! That's one of my paintings on the flyer and I quickly put it together in InDesign. I'm no designer but I enjoyed making it...isn't that what it's all about ...having a bit of fun....!

Niamh's turn today for something she really, really wanted to do....a Tea Party! Unfortunately none of the neighbours were in so we thought we'd have a trial run, with just the four of us. On the menu: cupcakes (two varieties - blue iced, pink iced), tea (with lots of milk, and some sugar) and iced tea (with peach), all served on the gaudy.... ahem.... I mean Lovely tea set I got from a charity shop. Tea tastes better out of bone china!

Ezra really, really wanted to do painting. I was a bit reluctant because a painting 2 year old is a hazard to all carpets and furniture....but the weather was good and I set him up outside with all the equipment. I definitely wouldn't have been so reluctant had I known that he would be absorbed in his masterpieces for 2 hours! Ok so he did paint the grass, his feet, his face and about 20 sheets of paper, but he was one happy 2 year old when he'd finished.
We are just about to move to Australia (fingers crossed all goes well with Visas, renting our flat, sorting bank accounts, tax etc) and I thought now would be the time to start a blog! I'm hoping to get better at it ...but for now this is the end of my first blog. Thanks for reading!
