I’m back after a much-needed break and I must admit I’ve missed my daily dose of creativity. Spending time away was really motivating and I can’t wait to get stuck into this fresh new season. I tried to spend time offline because last month I found there was too much mindless scrolling. I’d like to get back to using social media as a treat rather than a default setting in between tasks!

I spent Easter at home here in Oxford and with my family exploring Herefordshire, Kent and Sussex. There was so much inspiration and I was forever jotting down ideas and taking photographs. My sister and I also cleared our parent’s loft being reunited with GCSE, A-level, foundation and degree level art. It was fascinating to see and we enjoyed letting the whole lot go!

I visited the Ideal Home Show with Kat of Kat Got the Cream which provided the perfect excuse to soak up a little London in between cups of tea and blog chat. I hope you had a wonderful month and April is prettier than a forest of bluebells.

    I agree with you on the mindless scrolling and try to limit that too weekends rather than evenings. Working all day on a computer I prefer to use the weekend for blogging etc which means of an evening I can come home from work and relax. Yes I still catch up on Twitter and the like but I’m not worrying about blog posts and getting the coverage as I used to. Much healthier!
