This morning I sat up in bed and read all of your comments on my last post and I cried. From wondering if anyone would even see my blog, to over 100 blog comments, Facebook messages, and emails filled with such kind and generous words and sentences, I was and still am overwhelmed. From the bottom of my heart thank you, I can't tell you how happy you've made me.
It's funny, I always tell myself that it doesn't matter if anyone reads along, that I'm doing this for me and for the girls later on. But deep down I love to think of you all as I'm writing, checking in on my blog as you drink your first coffee of the day or as you're waiting for the pasta water to boil at night. I love to think of you rugged up under so many layers of clothing in the snow, or heading off for a swim in the lake. I love to think that the Internet and our blogs can connect us and make this big wide world a little bit smaller and friendlier.
So let me tell you a little story about a crafty thing we got up to today.
Then we came home, set up a crafty picnic at the edge of the forest and called out to the others to join us.
We did some branch weaving.
We made some pom-poms. We drank ginger beer and ate some water melon.
We listened to music, talked about music, sang along to the music and we chatted.
It was pretty windy at times and bits of bark came flying down from the tall trees but we didn't mind, we just shouted louder to be heard and then waited for it to calm down.
We had a gorgeous day. A real summer holiday crafty day. I do hope there are loads more ahead of us this year.
I wonder what you got up to today. Was it windy? Was there singing? Did you feel better at the end than the start?
And thank you again, for reading along, for taking the time to let me know and for sticking with me through the highs and lows and the gaps and the glitches, you've made me the happiest girl in blogland.
Big blog love,
