Definitely a lack of it. The Cornish holiday journal needs finshing.
The gold sea glass commission has stalled.
I’ve been trying vainly to get round all the blogs I follow, with very minimal success. Where I have been, I’ve seen so many inspirational things that I would love to be able to explore. I want to get back into my sketchbooks and do more of this:
In fact, I want that time to sit and create so much it hurts. Not spend most of my waking hours serving a job (primary school teacher) which thanks to the government and OFSTED, increasingly demands more and more of my life, like a monstrous cuckoo with an insatiable appetite. I ought to be planning next week’s literacy at this moment. And reorganising my guided reading groups. And annotating my maths planning for this week. And doing the 90 minute online Safeguarding course I’ve been
told asked to do (in my own time) for tomorrow. Certainly not blogging about it.
I know I’m not the only person out there juggling the demands of work with a busy family and somehow, in all that, trying to fulfil that deep, instinctive urge to be creative. So how do other people do it?
