So, it’s the perfect timing to start six new pieces of work when I’m starting a full time job on Monday! It’s as if I’m having a bet with myself – ‘Ok determined one, see if you can hold down a full time job and still be creative. Do both!’ After spending the whole of the Easter break mainly twiddling my fingers trying to find something creative to do in Dartmouth, I’ve come back knowing that these pieces should have been started a few weeks ago. Where does the time go? But life seems to have taken a complete turn over the last month and what seemed like a potential opportunity has become a reality. Hysterical that I land such a commission in its wake.

Sitting in the shed for the first time in what seems like an eternity I suddenly feel incredibly at home after feeling restless for so many months. It’s as if my head is saying, ‘Right, now is the time. It’s seems so utterly ridiculous but now is the time.’ I’m beginning to realise that I like being busy, that I suit being busy. My brain after feeling so dormant except for excuses is now starting to brim with ideas and colours and creativity. Before it seemed so barren. We shall see. A new chapter and multiple challenges but feel already, on the brink of all this, that I’m closer to myself than I’ve been for a long time.
