beyond the racing black clouds

I haven't had much spare time to write anything here the past couple of weeks
there has been rather a lot going on in all areas of my life

the stormy windy weather has been truly dreadful and scary
so I haven't felt like venturing out very much ...
instead I've been keeping busy with my sketchbooks, painting and stitching
making lots of hearts and updating my etsy shop this past week

on top of everything my hubby and I were just casually house hunting
when we saw a house that we quite liked
so now we are in the early throws of moving and packing
and I find myself juggling a great many things ...

it's early days ... so I won't say too much about it now
but I think the time is right to make that next life changing move
which is very exciting and hopefully a happy and stress-free one

here's a little film showing the tidal surges into St. Ives harbour
it was filmed by St. Ives Community TVduring one of the storms last week ... 

we've had so many storms recently
there has been no let up at all until this weekend
much of the country has been hit far worse than us and
I feel truly sorry for those whose lives have been affected by the floods
and hope and pray that everyone can stay safe until all this is over


take care everyone x

Hope the move goes well and you stay safe. The weather has been truly biblical, these past few weeks.

Oh....you're not leaving St. Ives are you, Carolyn!?
I can't imagine you would.
Hope the weather is calmer now down there, so you can start feeling more spring-like.

Gorgeous heart....very special. X

I've only discovered your blog about a month ago and love your blog and your art. I've also come to love St. Ives. I live in Florida and hope to visit Cornwall next year. Hope all will be well with you and your town.

Oh my. I can't believe the film. I have been praying for the people of England.
You'll sell your cottage? I can't wait to hear more!

Hope the packing is going along smoothly Carolyn, and that the house you want is still available for you.
Like you,my heart goes out to all those affected, Mother nature sure likes to show who's the boss.
Stay safe everyone.
