Ellie does wonderful things in ways we only discover by incident. Conversation is generally excitement on her terms. It revolves around animals, dinosaurs and anything cute. Her interests are minimal. She is not into fashion. Never uses her mobile phone (the one we bought for her 13th birthday still has it's first credit in there!). She couldn't care less about current affairs. She has no aspirations. She is not forthcoming.
But all that is insignificant.
What she is, is utter melt-in-the-mouth heaven. We recently went to the beach and I made these.
But she trumped my skills and she came up with this.
How she communicates her little pots of fun and knowledge is rather beautiful if but a rare occurrence.
I cannot believe how fortunate I am to be living eight miles from this beautiful castle. The cliff edge location provides a dramatic backdrop, especially if the skies are cloudy or stormy.
Mark and my poochy pud are up to visit this weekend and I wanted to show him the sights. I took to my fave vista of the site to enjoy the best glimpse of the castle - these two are just two metres apart from the perspective I used although an hours relapse between the two pics..........
I could sit in this spot all day.
As we were leaving, mark noticed a piper walking toward another vista of the castle's backdrop. I hope and prayed he'd stand in a spot where I could envisage a perfect shot. What luck I had....
What a privilege I have to come visit here when're I can :)
Slow and steady am I getting back in the craft game.
Night times here are so busy with ghost design and editing, I can assure you I do not sit here, at the cottage, twiddling my thumbs and wondering what to do next. I am always on the go. Either in work, after work - between work. My mind is alive and fraught with creativity.
