Life, crafty stuff, long walks, thoughts, and little oddities.

Bluebells and rain


It poured down today. Then came a small  break in the cloud. Tired of the weather, I scrabble into waterproofs and head outside. Next door’s gutter is overflowing, a torrent flooding on to the  yard. Further along, the stream is in full spate, swollen and rolling brown. Puddles overflow on to the road, the breeze creating a miniature tidal wave. The wind stirs again and the rain returns, blowing spray at my back, soaking me from head to toe. I head rapidly homewards accompanied by the steady drum of sound. Glum. Until there, at the side of the door, I spot them. The first green shoots of bluebells are fighting their way upwards against the winter. A smile on my face, I go indoors. To sit and watch the promise of spring, soaking in the rain.

Taking time out to ponder life and everything else. This is the space where I press the pause button on my busy life to reconnect with God, to re-energize, and focus on my creativity. Time out to blow bubbles, walk on the beach, write some stuff, do some needlework, and generally enjoy life once again. You can view my main blog at www.iggandfriends.wordpress.com. I also have another blog at www,faithinthehome.wordpress.com, and a arty/crafty one at http://52weeksofcreations.wordpress.com/. I hope you enjoy visiting :)
