I Don’t Want To Stop The World

I don’t want to stop the world, nor get off it but I really would like time to slow down!  Here we are on the 12th May and I’ve just finished my diary and collage for April!

I really thought that I’d have more time just ‘to be’ at this stage of life.  I think that I’m the reason that I don’t.  Perhaps I should relax and just accept that I prefer ‘to do’!

Here’s my collage representing just some of the doing of April:

April 2016

Can you tell that I made more time for art earlier in the month?  We went on holiday on the 21st & were too busy then exploring parts of SW Western Australia with our caravan and newly acquired kayak in tow.

On our trip, amongst other things, we enjoyed:

  • the picturesque Lake Towerinning,
  • the majestic Karri forests of Pemberton
  • walking Heartbreak Trail in the Warren River National Park
  • Kayaking on the Warren River
  • the wild weather on the coast at Prevelly
  • Ten Mile Brook Dam
  • the fresh, local produce at the Margaret River farmers market
  • stocking up with goodies at the Venison Farm & the Old Cheddar Cheese Factory
  • a bit of wine tasting
  • meeting up with friends at The Beer Farm after THEY had done a 40km mountain bike ride!

So I gathered plenty of inspiration – all I need now is find the time and energy to match it with perspiration!’

    So well said! We did have a busy month and I well remember our first kayak ride and the drama of getting it off and on to the car on a wet mud and rock slope on a damp day. Wouldn’t be dead for quids! 😀Xx
