At my house.

At my house today...well actually I have no idea what's going on at my house today because I'm not there.

I'm catching a train to Melbourne ALONE!!!!

I'm sitting on the train dreaming and knitting and thinking and just being.

My wonderful farmer boy is looking after things at home and I am off to explore the big wide world. To visit some exhibitions and some shops, to be inspired, to think and to be alone.

The truth is I don't even care if I sit in a cafe all day and knit, this day is about being by myself as much as its about anything else.

Hopefully I'll return this afternoon having missed my family, full of my own ideas and stories, energised and ready to take on this new week.

I hope your Monday is a funday.

More @ my house at Lou's.

See you tomorrow. XX

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
