I couldn't sleep last night and pottered in my craft space completing a wee book that i'd wanted to complete for some time.....i may bind it today although I am hoping i will not be doing that at 3a.m. in the morning because of my insomnia!my arting has been kinda messy in my book of days and a4 journal.. not pretty but expressy i think....I don't feel like myself..I don't know why..i have more energy,and life's o.k...but i'm restless and my 'down on myself' thoughts are running havoc!I'm sooo hoping Chel returns from footy early so i can persaude him to walk with me up to the farm and woods...When i looked at my completed spread for the week i felt a little downhearted...i am soo trying to love what is...but 'it was hard to 'breathe' last night and i was so conmscious of time and the fact i have to strengthen my resolve and take my little flower and heart bursting with love into the week again.

Today two of the individuals responsible for Stephen Lawrences murder 18 years ago were found guilty of his murder and given prison sentences.I remember the profound effect Stephen's murder had on the community ...it was two months after my own son was born and i still feel very emotional when i hear about it and the institutional racism that was rife in the police force at that time.I hope the others responsible are also brought to justice.Stephen's mother and family have been so courageous to never give up and pursue this.
