Moving on and getting inspired

acorn street

I get the greatest kick out of feeling like I’m making progress, and it sometimes doesn’t even matter what with. Even having got through my massive pile of ironing this evening has left me feeling a bit clever, and deriving such a sense of achievement out of this means I will ultimately be beside myself tomorrow if I can pull off the chicken stew recipe I have set my sights on.  Lord knows what will happen if I also manage to hoover the hall. I might need an early night…

On a actually slightly more truely exciting note, I have achieved my first tiny baby step in breaking it into the ‘creative’ workplace after the very talented Emma Lappin has agreed to give me some experience  and a valuable insight into what it is like to be a florist in demand. I’m hoping to soak up a bit of inspiration and see where it takes me – something I consider to be rather prudent following news at my current place of employment of the latest budget cuts, which has left me feeling a tad uncertain but also happily curious about the future unknown.

So for now I’m holding on to my hat, feeling inspired, and grateful that things are moving forward- and for lots of other people too right now.

Oh, and by the way the photo of one of my favourite places – Beacon Hill in Boston. I defy anyone to visit there and not want a piece of this very hip and happening (in a lovely twee sort of way) part of this city.  I definitely need to go back there when I have saved enough for a good camera and have learnt how to use it too. It is a really great place to get ‘ideas’ though and I have a whole collection of photos of shop signs and streets and even someone’s dog…

It’s a cool dog. I’d like a dog like that. I’d call it Graham.
