Where are you going?

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”
Eleanor Roosevelt

I haven’t had a holiday in years.  I’m not complaining, just making a statement.  Last summer I decided that I needed to get away even if it was only for one day!    I decided that I wanted to stand on top of the world – quite a challenge you might think, but I had an idea about how to achieve it.

So one glorious sunny day in July we set out in my brand new car, a shiny silver Toyota Verso and started travelling.  I enjoy driving so I started out full of high spirits and looking forward to our little adventure.  Three hours later we were still driving and I was getting a little tired, but I still full of anticipation of what we would see when we arrived at our destination.  Eventually, it was time to stop driving and take a well earned break, and enjoy our packed lunch!  We left the car and took advantage of an ice-cream vendor and then sat in the lovely sunshine and enjoyed our ice-creams.

Soon it was time to join others on the next part of our journey which was a train.  This was no ordinary train. Some might rudely consider it to be more of a cattle truck!  Anyhow, we were crammed into the compartment and off we went.  The journey was long, the route was very steep, but the scenery was breathtaking!

So we arrived ...  We explored the area, and surveyed the sights and sounds of being on top of a mountain.  Yes, I was finally on top of the world!  And it was amazing!

Sometimes in life we have to know where we are going in order to achieve our goals.  I enjoy crafting and my little Folksy shop is doing ok for now.  However, we are in a New Year and it is full of opportunities and adventures, so I have my dreams and my goals and I hope to be able to pursue them.  Do you know where you are going?

  1. If it involved a train ride, was it Snowdon by any chance?

    Your stuff is seriously beautiful. Popping over from Folksy, glad to have found your blog! Happy new year and I hope 2012 is a good one for you. Off to favourite you now. Hannah (ghostgoose on Folksy) x

  2. Your journey sounds great and getting to be on top of a mountain must have been wonderful!

    I'm sorting out a website this year and adding more to my shops.

    I have an overall plan to take over the world, lol! For now I'm happy to just grow the business a bit and make more sales but one day..........
