I love this time of year, cold and clear with a hint of the start of better weather. Such bright light and interesting shadows. The trees are starting to sprout leaves and the migratory birds are slowly making their way back - the birdsong enriching the estuary soundscape. The river tide is well in and although it is still comparatively freezing, the mercury is at least making an effort.
I have been most fortunate in finding a place that organises arty/crafty days. Yesterday, I made a victorian box and for a first go, it actually came out looking pretty ok. I have my eye set on a rag rug making day and a scrap journalling day too. I have come to a stage where I am fed up being squashed flat by academia and since there is only one assignment due re the module before I finish the half year. Taking up arty/crafty stuff is just an excellent way for me to unwind, plus it gives me ideas for script/novel ideas too.
