Sooooooooo ….  I am pretty new to Blogging so please bear with me, if I mess up I apologise!  If I post in the wrong place I apologise!  But I won’t apologise for writing 🙂

Writing is a way to express myself, it is a way to let go of all those thoughts whirring round in my head, thoughts that keep me in WAC at 3am in the morning.  Writing is a way to gather all those creative ideas and put them down into words, words which later I can see and remember what I would like to create.  Writing is a way to make sense of what people said or did or how you responded to certain situations throughout the day, it is a way to reflect, to recharge and to move on.

Today I CREATED my first blog post!  It wasn’t easy, it took several attempts and it frustrated the hell out of me but I did it 🙂  – I feel like I have broken a barrier that has hung around my head for the past 9 months (wow , just realised, I could’ve given birth instead of procrastinating over a post lol) and now I can move on with that project.

Today I also CREATED a bumble bee made out of a wooden turned leg from an old sofa, a  wooden doorknob and

some wire, it will hang in my garden above the gate.   It was something I have thought about for a couple of weeks now, I would’ve liked to go join my friends and have a tattoo done to show support for the 22 people who died in the bombing but with my illnesses my doc said it is too risky.  So I have sat and thought about what I could do to remember them and went through my junk box and saw the sofa leg 🙂 .  I am so proud of my creation I want to make another 21 and make a hive with the words of Tony Walsh’s poem written on it somehow.  That is a creation to be made in the near future I think.

Today I also CREATED a fairy village for my garden, it is only in my head at the moment, a creation waiting to be born but one day it will be real.  I sat in the garden, the sun beating down on my sunhat, sat on my hammock with a slight breeze coming through the wind tunnel I made last year (another creation that actually works), surrounded by 4 dogs all lying on blankets in the shadier parts of my little hideaway in the garden.  I hadn’t any energy apart from being able to gently sway the hammock and think and drink water.  I surveyed the garden and it is full of junk really, i am a hoarder!  A hoarder who always thinks there is another use for this and for that rather than throw it in the bin – not a good thing really judging by the amount of crap I have lying around the garden lol.    I counted 4 large petrol containers,  6 copper pipes,  9+ plastic pipes of various sizes and diameters,  a bucket full of plastic bottles, another bucket full of various size tins,  a bucket full of caps and lids from various bottles and jars …. and that was just in the places I could see from my little hideaway, I know there are many more like this all round the garden.   It was the 4 large squarish petrol containers and the bucket of lids that made me think fairy garden!   I could make lots of little houses with cute little funny chimney lids and roofs of different shapes … I could add some signs to the pipes with directions like “pick weeds here for free”  or “do not disturb the fairies” ….. My mind was in over drive creating the whole village in my head and there it will remain until I set it free by actually starting the project or i end up going to the tip and it will never see the light of day.

So all in all it has been a very creative day for me, I hope that I have not bored you with my thoughts but I am glad I decided to do this writing prompt called “Create” , it has allowed me to go back over my day and re think all my thoughts and be grateful that I have achieved so much creativity  when I thought I had done nothing but laze about all day.
