|Chateau Bourne vine|
At the beginning of September I was gripped by that "Back to School" feeling. I wanted a fresh start and new challenges .....and I wanted new notebooks, new pens....
It was hard to let go of summer and but I was ready to start thinking about some new projects... work and pleasure too. So I have been looking at new business ideas and possible new clients. Plus I am going to start being more "crafty" and surprised myself by making a flock of bird shaped lavender bags. My sewing isn't great and some of the birds look a bit odd, but I enjoyed making them!
And I am trying to lose some weight which is tough in a land full of fabulous cheeses and wine.
Leaves are changing colour, the sunlight is more golden and the temperature has dropped dramatically and despite the sun there is a chill in the air. We have harvested the grapes from our vine, delicious but nowhere near enough for wine - so I found a recipe for grape jelly and gave it a try. It's a very sweet jam and tastes like cherries.
There's definitely a buzz all around and a change of energy in the air!
It is a time of change and a time of new beginnings too....
What new skills can you discover? And what changes are you going to make? You might just surprise yourself!
