meet little errol, in the top picture. he is my new little friend. he is so teeny and lovely he fits in my bag or my pocket and i take him where ever i go. he likes that.
the last few weeks have been busy busy. uni then work then uni then work. but i am not absolutely miserable this year. it feels ok, a bit more manageable, a bit more positive. last year i felt lost and tired and overwhelmed. i feel different now. im not really sure why but im glad.
i have been getting ready for winter. slippers and wooly socks and thick jumpers and boots and starting to wear my red winter coat. excitement for christmas is starting!!
i have been cooking also. soups and cottage pies and roast dinners. comforting yummy food. giggles and films and walks with my David. missing my family a little. missing the kittens too.
i have set up my studio space and making new little friends to jin me there and keep me company and make me smile. they sit and watch me work. making more little friends from wire and fabric and wood.
lots of starwberries too. strawberry earrings, and necklaces, and rings. starwberries on my notebook. starwberries in my smoothies and in my tummy. strawberries on my bracelet. maybe a starwberry frind to sit on my wrist in ink??
i have been busy and have something to do all the time, but i feel awake and i am content and ok, which is a relief. for a long time everything has felt overwhelming. just now it feels fine. i hope this lasts a little while longer.
how are your autumns??
