A letter to February

20:30:00

Dear February,

What happened? Where did you go? I thought we had something good going on and then poof! No more. No note, no calls, just the lingering of something that was once special and now is gone.

I have to confess, usually I let you pass by, and don't even bat an eyelid, but this time, February you were great and I miss you.

I miss the lazy days, spent lying in the shade. The sweltering days and long balmy dusks.

You forgot to take the heat with you. It stayed behind frying the new grass shoots that had vainly tried to reclaim the dusty earth.

I can't compute going back to school with such heat.

Reflecting back I enjoyed the time we had,

What have I done? I fell in love with another books series, sadly the series is still being written (I don't want to have to wait!!).

I baked a LOT!

I tried so many different things this month. It got hard nearing the end to find new things to bake. The more I baked the more confident I got. I wanted to try new and more complex things but couldn't decide where to start. Something I'll have to achieve this month.

I travelled and explored.

I slept and (didn't)



I got to sew!
Granted it was curtains (which I will show you sometime soon) which is quite different from the other projects I have endeavoured. As much as I love sewing I never seem to set myself time. I am always starting projects and so for once it was nice to finish one. I'd never actually made curtains before, it's a different experience.

I danced, oh, it is so nice to dance again.
I had momentarily pined for a dance class once or twice last year but to be actually back in a studio working hard has been the best.

February was the month that I got things back in order.
It was the month that I really realised how much enjoyment my blog brought me. I came up with a slightly different header, which brought me more enjoyment that the previous one.
While the time away from my blog was peaceful I found that fitting little things in like taking blog photos was not only easy to do, but very enjoyable.
For the first time in a very long time I was creating funny memories all by myself.
For the first time in forever I was making the little images in my head, the ones that usually get pushed aside and marked as 'impossible to achieve' were being created, all by myself.
I started to realise that I could actually be a creative person too.

Contrary to what I believed for the whole of my schooling, I found that I enjoyed writing. While I haven't really 'found my voice' I loved being able to write what I wanted, how I wanted.

Cheers February, 

You've been great.

Until next year,

xx
