We all have times when we just have nothing to say. We look on as observers and take in others words and ideas and process them in our minds. I’ve been doing this for a few months now. It is mental health week in Australia this week and if there’s one thing I’ve learnt over the years it’s to heal yourself or ask for help with healing yourself before you can go help others. I’m of no use to anyone if I’m not dealing with my own problems.
So I have been gathering myself up and resting mindfully 😊. I have been baking, eating , going to concerts, drinking nice wine and more than the odd glass of pear cider, enjoying time with my husband and going to work. I have four books on the go at the moment by various authors like Stephen King, Terry Pratchett, James Patterson and Jonathan Kellerman that I pick up and read a few pages of and can put down if I like. I’ve been playing the odd computer game or two. Nothing like beating the aliens to destress 😉.
This is a Dundee cake I made yesterday from a recipe from Liz at My Favourite Pastime blog. It’s meant to taste better and better the longer you leave it but it will be attacked with joy today. I’ve brushed it over twice with Henneseys Cognac and I made it with gluten free flour so Jason can enjoy it as well.
I’ll be back in blog ville very soon dear readers. Thank you for your patience 😄
