A new week…

I woke up this morning, disappointed that it was Monday and miserable to hear the rain lashing against the window outside. Weekends seem just to fly by, I know I’m not alone in thinking that. I had a fleeting thought which went something like “this is a week just to get through”.

On my way home from dropping my two sons off at school, I reflected on that thought and realised what an ungrateful and unhelpful thought that was. There will come a time when I will look back to this stage of life and wish I could be back here, living it again. Yes, I have a pretty tough week of work ahead… but everything is happy and settled at home, I have my health, lots to look forward to and so much to be thankful for.

I am going to make a concerted effort to focus on the things I am thankful for.  A couple of years ago I did the #100HappyDays challenge on Instagram (@nameartlimited) and it really changed my outlook on life. This time I thought I’d use my Name Art blog. Some of my posts will be Name Art related, others will just be Charis waffle…apologies for the latter!

When I got home from the school run, I took myself to my beautiful studio (which I’m so lucky to have) and felt chuffed about the business I set up back in 2009. I now run it alongside teaching 3 days a week at a local primary school. The mix is good, a bit of security and a bit of time to scratch my creative itch. It means that 2 days a week I get to take and collect my boys from school which I still love doing – even though they’re both far too grown up for a goodbye kiss these days!

Now that the boys are that bit older, it means that I sometimes get time over the weekend to potter about in my studio…as well as just on Monday and Fridays. This weekend, a new idea came to me – an alphabet range. My husband was busy working out how to re-build our fireplace

(bored moment – whoops!)

……and so I got creating and I’m pretty chuffed with the results so far :)
