I have the good fortune of being off work this week and thanks to the Easter break, have done my relaxing and now have the next four days where it is all about me.

Here in NSW, the smalls are still in school and the Mr is naturally at work, so in between my time is my own.

And I intend to make the most of it!

Not only with “working” here at Lime Lane, but also spending time doing, racking up a few experiences close to home.

So, armed with a check list, here are five things I plan to do with these precious days.

  1. Check out the art. I was actually handed a flyer for an studio exhibition at the farmers’ market the other day and I popped it in my diary with mental note to check it out this week. And while I’m at it I might as well pop into the local art gallery.
  2. Take more photos. This is an obvious one in a way but I really want to push myself to get back into that photo-taking habit. And I want to take finish and take in several films to be processed. And perhaps go wild and snap off a pack of instax film as well. Why not? I’m on holidays!
  3. Go for a walk, somewhere different, every day. See point two ~ as I will be making sure to take a camera along and take more photos of different places.
  4. Take myself to brunch/lunch or a picnic, on my own. First, this pushes my comfort zone a bit but secondly, so I can sit and soak up a change of scenery.
  5. Go and work at the library one morning. There is something motivating and inspiring among all those books. I want to soak that up, too.

I’m also going to do set myself to put together something I’ve always wanted to do. Let’s hope it works out and I’ll share it soon.

It’s out there now, I’ll check back next week to see how I went.
