I find when I come home from a holiday, my head full of new images and ideas, my bags full of laundry and guidebooks and cards and gifts and other sundry things, and a pile of things awaiting my attention, that all of a sudden I am overwhelmed with a to-do list again.
Where to start? I think as I survey the stuff everywhere....
I remember an old trick - start with the flowers, then get to work making everything else live up to the beauty and the style of the flowers. I cleared the kitchen surface of everything except this new pot (my one purchase from Snape Maltings - I was very restrained!), filled it with all the dill left in the garden, enjoyed looking at it and photographing it then set about the rest with a lighter heart from the joy of it.
I wonder how long I can keep it this simple?
