In need of a brain pause 

In need of a brain pause 

Is there such a phrase? But ‘in need of a brain pause’ summed up perfectly my need for some R & R.

It’s been a summer of involvement in lots of local projects as well as making my art and with a house full again, lots of motherly angst over my children as they take risks and face challenges in making their lives.

So when Summer appeared to be over and we were having to turn the lights on in the daytime, I started scouring the net for a quick break away. After two days, it was booked. A week in Majorca in four days time.

I did take my paints and loved making some watercolour sketches in the warmth of the mediteranean sun. With perfect temperatures at day and night, it was incredibly relaxing to stroll around the marina, lie on white sandy beaches and bathe in turquoise seas. Eat local fish and drink local wine with the biggest gin aperitifs ever!

With no car, the week felt like a week and at the end both ready for home with the added bonus of coming back to October sunshine. (We discovered the week had been glorious here too.. oops).

So with an empty clear head I’m ready to take on the next challenges. Exhibition for next August booked, two commissions, two lovely charity pieces to do in the next month….bring it on. 🙂
