New directions.

I've been thinking about how much my life has changed over the last few years and of course, the last 12 months have seen the most dramatic changes. I find it so interesting that all I wanted to do was paint and sculpt but since being in France I've only worked with my wool.  Maybe it's because all of my painting supplies are in boxes and my wool has kept me sane during the move but also, I think, I'm changing yet again into a different version of me.

However, last week I was reminded that the old me is still there, just put aside while I learn new skills. Flash (below) was being a silly numpty and had got out onto the newly seeded paddock. He was not going to be caught, well, not by T at least! Somehow I managed to join up with him and he had a lightbulb moment and decided that he had to be with me! This caused it's own problems as I've joined up with several of T's horses and my darling Bo doesn't like any other horse or pony near me! It got me thinking though about all the years I'd spent learning Natural Horsemanship. I have these lovely animals here and I need to be doing something with them!
I'm not sure where the horses fit in, but they're such an integral part of our lives that I know I'll find a way to slot them into my future plans. I really want to paint Flash too, he's just too gorgeous not to.
The weather has broken and we're back to wind and rain. That's fine though, I have lots of wool to wash and dye :D


  1. I'm glad that you're happy :) Your horses are just beautiful and life changes are good in my opinion! The direction of my own life has changed a lot over the last year too, it feels right! :)

  2. I was thinking about you today and telling Tam how happy you are in your new life in France, and what you were up to. Great that you have palled up with Flash now - Natural Horsemanship is really the only way to go. I hope that you can incorporate the ponies into something positive - how about learning to drive and getting one or more broken to harness, so you could do drives through the French countryside for holidaymakers?

    Enjoy your wool-washing. We each have different facets and obviously your spinning/dyeing/weaving one is uppermost at the moment.

  3. I think this is one of the most significant information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article.
    But should remark on some general things, the web site style is perfect,
    the articles is really great : D. Good job…
