My lunchtime ritual is to go for a walk in the woods near where I work. My job is desk-based and I could easily spend the entire day sitting down if I didn't do this. I haven't been able to walk for a while though after injuring my ankle in spectacular fashion in February. However, today I went for a walk in 'my' woods. This was under orders from my physiotherapist who thought that the uneven ground would 'stress my foot' (which is a good thing apparently!). It was perfect timing - the bluebells are out and the scent was amazing.
These walks are important to me - particularly when I'm thinking up a jewellery design - so it was great to get out there again. I’m not one
of those people that can sit down with a piece of paper and come up with a design. I just go for a walk in the woods and an idea pops into my
head - or not as the case may be, but at least I’ve had some fresh air!!
I have been busy making things but I seem to be using a scatter-gun approach at the moment - I've started lots of things and, consequently, haven't finished anything! Hopefully my walk will clear my head and I'll have lots to show you in the next few weeks.
