Everyday Fearless – The Book
Creative Monday – The Book
- Wicklow, you are looking good this morning! You can’t see it from the pictures but it’s a fresh day, my favourite kind. Walkers are walking. Runners are running. It reminds me, we’ll be travelling to Portugal in the camper at the end of March - only 6 weeks! Walking through the town I’m reminded of communities we visit in France and Spain and Portugal. The great thing about Ireland is I can understand what’s going on! We used to think the weather was always better “over there” but I promise it’s not that different at the time of year we travel and when it’s starts to get hot I always long for soft Irish rain! I’m visiting my art wall here in Nick’s Coffee and thinking about Valentine’s Day❤ Be sure and visit if you’re looking for a unique handmade gift or sausage rolls... I might be addicted!😂 #wicklow #wicklowtown coffee #craft #making #crafting #creative #creativity #creativecalm #gifts #calm #peace #positivity #mindfulness #peaceofmind. #nickscoffeeshopI really don’t like going to the dentist but I had a toothache so... I had to go but a kindness thing happened that’s made me rethink my thinking, if you know what I mean. I was just about to sit in the chair when I told the dentist I needed to collect my car in half an hour and if she though this appointment would take longer I’d need to let my husband know so he could collect it. Oh by the way I’d never met this dentist before, I’d been to the practice about two years ago (the last toothache) but not to her. You know what she said? She said, well I’ll be going home before 4.30 and I can give you a lift to the garage. And she did! She sorted out my toothache too (did you know that grinding your teeth can give you toothache? I probably should start wearing the mouthguard thingy I have?) There’s every likelihood I won’t get the tagging thing working so if you bump into Chris from the Blacklion Dental Studio in Greystones can you giver her a wave - she’s very kind and although she may not be able to give you a lift I bet she’d give you a smile. She has a great smile Thank you, Chris, the kindness dentist #kindness #dentist #thinkingHere’s me taking a leap of faith... my art and craft on sale at Nick’s Coffee in Wicklow town.
