Ashton Hill woods. Half way along the forest trail is a Giant Sequoia grove. Every time I reach this point I take a great big breath and marvel that this spot is only a few minutes drive from the centre of Bristol. It's a magical place come rain or shine.
Family events have cast a long shadow over this year and I realise I have retreated inwards to cope with it all. I ditched my social networking, got myself the sweetest little puppy dog and have been putting much of my energy into keeping up with his goofy antics and getting out into the fresh air.
Now I've got a nice life/work balance back I'm back online with my Red Ruby Rose facebook page and have been stocking up my Etsy shop with lots of new designs. It's so nice to be finding my feet again.... with Paddy pup by my side.
