A concussed layout.

I have concussion. It is surprisingly undetectable! I carried on working and generally getting on with things until the headache got worse and the disturbed vision made my friends think I should get it checked out. I hadn't put 2 and 2 together with the fall I had when I hit my head. Dur.
Anyway I made this layout for Sue's sketch challenge while I have been concussed, will leave it up to you to see if you can tell lol.

Thanks for looking :-)

I felt sluggish and grumpy on Sunday morning. It was my sunday off and so I got my hiking gear on, saddled Minty up and headed out at sunrise. It had just risen as we got up to the start of the walk up to the top of the Cairn.












One of my teams on UKS is having a Winter Scavenger Photo Hunt, inspired by how much fun some of us had following along with Rinda's Summer one. It has been lovely picking off the odd one or two but it was even better to get quite a few in one walk.
It was a wonderful walk and I felt human again afterwards :-) I didn't see anyone, the birds were singing, the sun was shining, the wood was good and wood like. Perfect.


The colour palette for the house challenge on UKS was perfect.
Thanks for reading today :-)

Down the rabbit hole.

These things have caught my eye over the past few days, I love the 'down the rabbit hole' effect of the internet. 

1. Dr Ivan Joseph at TEDMy One Little Word this year is Assurance. I have been researching what it means to be assured and especially the self-confidence part. I liked his talk and especially this sentiment as to what it takes to be self-confident:
I am intending on working on this through February. Mainly in repeating what I did in January for my health.

2. I have been using it for a while but if you haven't used it before may I recommend Rhonna Farrer's apps Rhonna Designs and RD Magic which are brilliant when used on their own and even better used together. Here is the link to the iTunes app and here is the link to the android version. Easier and cheaper than photoshop! I made that quote above and use them on most of my iPhone photos. 

3. Impatiently waiting for our #snowmageddon2015, meanwhile in America. Chortle. Especially the last one.

4. I joined Sandra Paul’s Ravelry group. I really don’t know what to try first. But, if you forced me to pick and I had the skill I would make this one next.
She has just started a podcast which I like a lot, try here at A Cherry Heart.

5. I made something I pinned! Honey Cloud Pancakes. Even. Better. Than. They. Sound. 

Oh and this as well, zero untangling in my bag since I did.

6. At the top of my wishlist are these. I have the black patent version for work and they are so comfy, the most comfy work shoes I have ever had. These are so cute. They have pink ribbons for laces. I would draw the line at that though and insert the cream laces. I think I would anyway. I am pretty sure I am not a pink ribbon sort of a 41 year old :-)


Happy 'down the rabbit hole'-ing. But remember, chores and life are good too ;-)
