Step Away From the Computer

Yeah. We work hard. We work long hours. We work on computers. Our work is also our passion. Our hobby. Our great love. It is hard work starting a business, getting new clients, sustaining a high level of fresh creativity. But we love it. We feel so completely blessed to be able to work from home and to work together. However, sometimes you just have to take a break. Step away from the computer and that's what we did yesterday.

Everyday we go for a walk or 2. We have to. You can't work like we do and not get exercise and fresh air. It's absolutely vital and is also an important part of our day. Anyway, we decided to go to the other end of the town and beach to the Harbour. We went to the Fish Market - beautiful, fresh local caught fish. And then we walked into town and went to a couple of local galleries. Steve has decided to start painting again and we thought we'd go see what local talent his up against! He really wants to do some paintings of our home here in Whitstable and capture its beauty being an historic coastal town.

It was just a fantastic time together. We got lots of exercise, fresh air and some quality time away from the computer. It's funny really as it completely fuelled our inspiration and we found we were so fired up for work this morning. Worth taking that time out and just push ourselves to walk a bit further and do something different from the every day routine.

Oh and here's a couple of photos that I took. Steve took the photo of us together - longer arms ha! Oh and the word prompt for HS|MS is "organise" so I took a photo of one of the book shelves of our art books.


Hope everyone has a great Thursday! x
