And breathe

I'm so glad it's Friday.  I've found the week...a little unsettling.... a bit of a challenge really.  I don't really know why.  And today didn't start well as I sat in my pjs happily drinking coffee before realising that it wasn't Saturday and we needed to get moving.   Having started off on that misstep, the rest of the day so far hasn't really gone to plan either but an unexpected delay gave me to time to spend some time in a bookshop and soak up some inspiration, which it turns out was much needed and for which I'm grateful.

So the weekend is a welcome time to be together, to recharge, to soak up some quiet, to focus on us.  And to see if we can't inject a bit of colour into this grey February start.

What are you up to?

Happy weekend. :)


  1. This photograph looks like a watercolour...I love how you've done this!

    Those days where the wrong foot started out of bed and the rest of the day seems to be a bit off kilter...we can moan about that or we can just take it for what it is and say "perhaps this is an adventure I was meant to have" -- it's kind of Winnie the Pooh-ish! And there's never anything wrong with a bit of Winnie the Pooh!

    Enjoy this first weekend in February!

  2. Oh this image is yummy. Did you use an app or PS? Love to know how you did this...Have a great weekend, Becs!

    1. Hi Sherry, thank you so much! I did this on my phone. Can't remember the exact process but the apps I use are snapseed and glaze (gives the watercolour effect). I often use distressfx (but can't remember if I did on this one or not!). It's just really a question of playing around until I like what I see. Hope this helps. Have a great weekend too. x

    2. Thanks, Becs. This is so great. Hope you do more...

  3. Yes this image is lovely. I love the blur and the colors. Time in the bookshop is always good.

  4. Another beautiful painterly image. Love this processing - it seems as if everything is melting into a watery blue pool. Have a great weekend! Tomorrow you really can sit in PJs with your coffee :)

  5. Funny that you thought it was Saturday, hope you enjoyed your real SAturday relax in your PJ's. Nice image- looks a bit like a reflection in a puddle.

  6. Love the image, beautiful tones! So glad you had a chance to grab some inspiration in the bookshop! Hope you and your family have a fantastic weekend!
