Well I've been coveting two things Kate Morton's life,writing her sixth novel conjuring those romantic and historic worlds that I love to inhabit myself,and also this Summer Glory preserve from Fortnum and Mason.Someone must buy me this preserve to have with butter on freshly baked bread with English breakfast tea.I have fallen back in with him (snow) and everything he contains,he brings such nesty thoughts really.He just makes me want to cook,keep house,write novels and things of that nature.I worked on my novel for about two hours yesterday mostly I began the first scene with a midsummers eve party in which the two poets meet,he a wild Celtic fiend based on red of course.It was truly an enormous feat getting ideas and thoughts out,but I was so determined to find something,somewhere to be.Inhabiting other worlds use to be everything to me.After awhile I became exhausted of trying to extract diamonds.But I'm sure Turia Pitt felt the same when she tried to run her first marathon again when at first she'd been unable to even lift her arms.I will write a story I can live within and love.

I am not sure what I'm doing today maybe cooking,I tire of cooking but it's so satisfying when you make a good meal.I need to try some of these BBC recipes.I miss illustrating so much when I see beautiful watercolour paper and tiny brushes.Id really love to illustrate some Russian Fairy tales,the last I did six years ago was a Rusalka.I love to paint all delicate as watercolour allows.Oh I feel fond of Russian things at the moment.I want to creep away from the world into a story land.I wish I could get an antique Matyroshka set (Russian dolls).Oh I wish it would rain there is nothing better than a rainy day,all cosy inside with your books and tea.Still thinking about having an etsy store Id like to sell William Morris Journals or lockets,maybe tea in pretty tins.Of course all things I'd love right now.Still listening to Dean Lewis 'Waves' it's healing to be listening to music,I never do.

Id really like to write an asylum novel,I did start one last year called Bridewood Asylum. I think I'd make it Edwardian as that is my favourite era, and maybe she'd be in there for manic flights,visions and wandering about, they use to convert country houses into well to do private asylums.I wonder if they all dined together and what they did all day, and no meds so everyone in high spirits as it were.Oh I feel inspired by it all.Im reading about the wonderful Lady Gregory whose retellings of Celtic myth I love to read,I'd like to read her visions and beliefs in the west of Ireland,she wrote so many plays,collected so many tales and had salon meetings with Tennyson and Browning.Id love to compare the otherworld journeys of Celtic myth with the episodes I have,they are so much alike.Had I been alive a thousand years ago no doubt I would have known it all so differently.

Still wondering about how to build my life into something I can bear or better.So many poxy blogs around about living your best life,full of worksheets,motivation and goal setting I like the idea of living with purpose, but the blogs generally are so simplistic and poxy.I think just writing in my journal everyday the things I want to see come to fruition is enough,and to not let life just happen to you.At the same time let life be an interesting journey too,not a constant pursuit to someday.The only things that stop me from dreaming bigger is my illness,damage and my sleep I feel they are the only barriers I have.If you took those away I think I would save for a tiny house,do the MA in Celtic Studies,paint self portraits,become a serious poet,have that wardrobe of handmade clothes I always wanted.Its good to journal and write out your ideal day to get some idea of what you want for your life.Well time for some tea and see if I can watch Birdsong.
