Formerly Inspiration or perspiration.
I had a premonition when I was working that when I stopped working my ideas and inspiration for blog posts would dry up and I am sorry to say that the premonition has come true. I do have a bit of a sixth sense. Not that I often posted about work. I think that when you are not working life takes on a different perspective. Most days at work I would come into contact with up to 200 people. On a busy day it could be many more. I do not miss them, so am unsure of the effect that they were having on my life. However, I do miss my work colleagues. Recently my life has not gone to plan and I wonder if that could be having an effect on my creativity or maybe I am just trying to do too much. When I first started to blog it was easy. I had a wealth of untold stories to tell. Now most of my tales are told and life does not seem to be so colourful.
My main aim for this year is to get on top of the garden.Consequently I am spending as much time as I can working in the garden, when the weather allows. It seems that too much time spent in the garden is making Cheshire Wife a dull girl but the rewards from the garden can be wonderful. This stunning blue camassia and majestic yellow fritillaria imperialis are currently in flower.
I am struggling to get a balance. between work and play, as at the moment there seems to be an awful lot of balls to keep in the air. Maybe a holiday is the answer. Later today we are going away for a few days to somewhere that I have never been to before and that we have been trying to get to for a few years. I am hoping that the change of scene and fresh air will blow away the cobwebs and give me some inspiration. Otherwise it is going to be perspiration.
