I've had such a 'me' week this week, it's been all about 'me', in-fact I've spent the entire week on a 'me-retreat'. I'm having this retreat because I'm house sitting for someone, away from my own place! It's been a real oasis, for I've escaped all the usual run-up banter to the Football World Cup that goes on in my house! I've escaped to a very tranquil and peaceful space just right for contemplation!
So what have I been contemplating? For one thing my blog, you might have detected this from the new blog template I applied! I'm going to add a new banner when I get home to my own workspace. The thing is I'm fairly new to the blogging thing as you may be aware! But I've been reading and digesting a wonderful book on this subject by Tara Frey - Blogging for Bliss, very informative and helpful, beautifully illustrated, and with a friendly touch that seems to be the hallmark of creative bloggers.
Now I'm beginning to get the hang of things I realise that I have made a number of boobs! When I look back on my previous posts in my new template they could do with a little editing, but what the heck - I'm not going to! I'm just going to leave them there as a reminder - life is a learning experience! We don't have to be perfect first time, or second, or third ........?
Oh, just one other thing that's added to my Happy Friday, Iv'e been feeling such a sense of connection to the world, although I'm not a footy fan, I just had to watch the opening ceremony of the World Cup in South Africa on TV, I have an affinity with South Africa and seeing this spectacle was really moving. My sister lived in this beautiful county for twenty years through their troubles and turmoil, so to witness the uniting spirit of sport was very emotional! Added to this my darling daughter is flying to New York as I post for a 'fun in the city' holiday of a lifetime, and would you believe England v USA is scheduled for Saturday! So there's another connection with some of you dear bloggers!
