A spring in my step

 I can't begin to tell you how much I'm enjoying doing up my bedroom.  If you remember I did something similar downstairs with the office but even then Ash had some input into the colour.  It's been lovely through the winter having that room as an escape but I realised this morning that I can use the bedroom in the same way.  I've been feeling just the tiniest bit down about having to sleep in a single bed but there needs to be room for the trundle bed when Jake comes with the 7 year old to stay with Ash while I have a break so there's no way round that but today I looked around the room and noticed how much space there was.  With the noticing came another light bulb moment and I ran downstairs, picked up an old pine side table we don't really use, returned to the bedroom with it, placed it next to the wicker chair and, hey presto, I can sit and drink my coffee while listening to the radio and looking out over the garden.  I did just that and it was so lovely that my spirits soared and I made plans to do the same thing day after day right up until it's warm enough to sit outside when I'll move to an area I created in the garden last summer or to the summer house (AKA 'the shed') both of which have much the same effect on me.  Creating calm spaces in a variety of places is, I think, the way forward.

Oh, and just in case you don't usually look at the facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Memory-for-Two-287197572048864), I posted two photos this afternoon, one taken last May and the one you've seen recently taken earlier this month.  I took the one last May because, for the first time in a very long while, I was feeling pretty good about life and at the time I liked the photo.  Seeing it at the side of the most recent photo made me realise how far I've come.
