I was out early in the garden this morning, transfixed by the morning sun on the droplets of rain clinging to the plants from the miserable, wet day that was yesterday.
Interspersed with these droplets are some droplets of life here over the last week...
:: I have taken part in another training day at St Mary's with a new group of registrars. Another wonderful group of people with lots of questions for me to think about and try and answer.
:: I have now got two bereaved parents that I am working with from Helen House. I feel satisfied that my months of training have actually come to something. I have shared tears with them and felt privileged to have listened to their stories of their children.
:: I have celebrated a birthday with a wonderful lunch here.
:: I am working on another initial cushion for a customer! Yes, a customer! At last!
:: I have a long, long list of things that are in my work pile, including a food mixer cover for another customer. I will be winging that one as I've not made such a thing before but she has given me her ancient one to use as a pattern. I have more blinds and curtains to make for my Mum, plus a couple of other bits and bobs that she has asked me to make for her new house.
:: I have bought some of this gorgeous, gorgeous fabric and I am going to attempt to make something for me to wear.
