So we are settling into sunny warm Cambridge with the spring... may the wind stop blowing, and the sun come out to stay!
I hope the sun is shining where you are...

My very week has been lived quite differently to most: I've practised being in the moment, without worry or indecision (I know, I know.. quite un-Cheryl-like!) and I am finding it easy to practise integrity - doing what I say I am going to do.
Integrity is what I think of as one of 'my words'... It's a word that was first discussed with me by a mentor trainer when I was a fledgling Customer Service trainer back in the day (at DHL), and I use it as an indicator along my journey. Perhaps that's weird, but being around people with integrity, and reminding myself to 'do what I say I'm doing to do' has been my way forward. Of course I do forget sometimes.
Today I am going to act with integrity and take my son and his best-friend-who's-practically-his-cousin to a Lego-building competition. Lego is his favourite thing, and he's going to go to a place where other like-minded souls will be creating, and he's going to have one of his favourite creative people by his side.. Then they are going to the Pirate movie (?? not sure of actual title). His other favourite thing is claymation and stop-motion movies. What a delicious day he will have! Therefore, what a delicious day I will have (and did I mention that the Lego competition is at Moore Wilsons in Wellington? Gosh, what a coincidence that Madder&Rouge is right over the road... and Cafe Laffare ... )
Enjoy your Friday the 13th. I know I am already, C

I have been loving this ebook Flying Lessons - http://kellyraeroberts.com/ecourses/, purchased on the strength of a whisper from my creative self... who knows where it will lead. The bit about creating community has led me to Facebook, and soaking up Kelly Rae's positive approach to life has reached through layers of facade to my beaming inner self. Totally quenching my thirst for authenticity in living.
I have also been nourished by Jen Lemen's blog http://jenlemen.com/blog/ - so much going on, and still a steady focus on her heart and on hope. A newbie to the blogger world is http://www.kristinnoelle.com/ . Another nourishing idea - tending trust.
I toast a 'camping marguerita' to you.. with some tropical popcorn on the sideand please... feel free to leave me crumbs of what's been nourishing you lately! xx C

Next came my teacher training, and my first year as a teacher.. still the plans were mulled over. Finally, this August, the builders came. Our bathroom went from the above, to this:
to this (we only have one window now):
to this: ta-daaaa....
Every time I go in, my heart sings! I love the sparkle of it, I love the bright colours like watercolour paint on the lino, and I love that the paint colour fits perfectly and is called Onepoto - the name of the big park around the road. Mostly I love that this room is living testament that dreams can come true. Waiting is required, along with visualization, trust, and ... yes... love!
