Project 365: Day 54

One of the great things about Max being at nursery for the mornings, is being able to pop into my mum and dad's while he's there.

My interest in creativity has come back, after about ten years of it having gone. After finishing my standard grade Art, it just kind of went out of my life. Boys were more interesting. Uni started, then I got married and had kids.

Funny how the things that make me, well *me*, managed to just slip away and hover in the background.

So the best thing about Max being at nursery as far as I'm concerned, is definitely being able to get back to being me again.

Having time to go spend time with my mum, and have fun with paints and stamps and pretty papers.

To be able to re-discover the love I used to have for getting messy and making something from it.

Not to mention learning new ways to do things, trying out various different approaches to DOing and CREATing.

I've got a long way to go before I get back to my usual.

That's the thing though, I have plenty of time.

I'm still young.

I still have lots to learn.

For now I'm taking it a step at a time.

Finding my own path I suppose.

Enjoying time to finally be ME.

What do you do that's just for YOU? Do you do anything? Can you MAKE the time to do something just for you? What would you do if you had the time?

I'd love to know!
