Getting up steam

I have noticed that as the darkest days retreat, energy begins to return and one ‘builds up steam’ for the next project.

On Monday I ‘got up steam’ in several ways. The day started with a visit to a friend’s railway layout (complete with CD of sound effects) and I was able to admire the incredible attention to detail in this tiny scale train set – with three trains dashing around and no serious derailments.

Then it was off out with said friend to drink coffee in the railway carriage at Lopen’s ‘Trading Post’ (and very busy it was too). Properly ‘stoked up’ we returned home and I was able to apply myself to the next project – well, two projects: one involves door frames and creativity (more of that anon) and the other is The Next Book – which is going along nicely, thank you.

So, lots of steam being channelled into different activities – and a growing yearning to head out to the West Somerset Railway again – so here’s a taste of it:

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset. I am enslaved by Sherpa-the-cat. Saturday mornings find me 'playing shop' in the Honey Pot - a second hand bookshop, run from my garage, where along with the books you'll find fun, friendship and refreshments - all in a good cause.
