    Time Out Reads – Create

     Sunday’s are a great day for truly enjoying slow living. Especially when there are no football matches or parties to attend. Last Sunday we took a trip to a park not far from us, the kids on their wheels and me trying to keep up as usual. As we crossed a bridge over a little stream we spotted some very talented artists decorating the walls along the stream. The picture above is just one of many along these walls. Blogging is a tricky area, many of us do it as a business, trying to earn a steady income from an area we love. Some of us blog because we love writing,…

    Time Out Reads – Consciousness

      This week has been a week full of illness for me. I have felt that ill that I had to miss two days of  university. This did give me time to chill out, something I think my body has been trying to tel me for a couple of weeks. Even though I am trying to implement slow living, actually accomplishing it is proving harder than I thought. We have things every day that need to be done, especially with three children but I am working really hard on the areas I can control. This week I have been enjoying finding time again to keep up to date with some…
