Well I found myself walking in the woods this morning, a dog walker without a dog, I was so excited to be able to go out and enjoy the winter sun, smell the damp moss, get mud on my boots (the snow has melted) and listen to the birds. My knee is not completely better, but able to to take me walking again, although it is still quite stiff after not being used properly for three weeks. I was beginning to get terrible cabin fever, as much as I like being holed up beside my fire against the snow, a couple of days is plenty.

At least I have been quite productive during my hibernation and made up some nice new jewellery, amongst other things, some turquoise earrings which can now be seen in the jewellery section of the website, I have decided to have a winter sale of a selection of items in each category, well worth a quick browse.

The sun is pouring through the window as I sit here in my virtual reality wanting to pass on my excitement at finding a book called "simple abundance" by Sarah Ban Breathnach a totally inspiring book, with a page for every day of the year, I have just been reading about gratitude and the book suggests I make a gratitude journal, a beautiful book covered in my favourite cloth to write down all that I am grateful for in my life, and you know what as soon as I do that I feel like the luckiest person in the world.

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and
more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It
can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a Friend. Gratitude makes
sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow"
