I was up early this morning, 6.45am, as usual but today I am not due at work. I have taken a spur-of-the-moment day off. I had been thinking of taking some time off but only had it authorised last night. There is something great about knowing when you need a day off and being able to take it quickly. I am very thankful.
I am going out later with mum, who first has a hospital appointment, to do some shopping and have lunch.
But one of the main reasons for taking the day off is that I
need want to upload photographs onto Flickr and they are taking me forever to do and are driving me slightly insane. (It’s important for me to realise when I ‘need’ to do something as opposed to ‘want’. The ‘want’ usually drives me more than the ‘need’).
This morning coffee in hand (strong, white with two), I have been uploading and looking back on some of my favourite photos.
Me, without make-up and out of focus, but one of the only photos I have ever taken of myself that I am happy with (Nov. 2010)
The garden last Sunday.

Very, very early morning. London – May 2010. Part of my night volunteering at the Moonwalk which you can read about here.
Garsons Farm, Summer 2010
It’s great to look forward but I love looking back and remembering such happy times. Looking at the sweet peas at Garsons Farm (a pick your own farm about 10 miles from my home) reminded me of what a great day we had – and that the sun will shine and bring warmth soon!!!
