Hello lovely people.
Just a quick post today to give you a bit of an insight into what is happening inkatesshoes.
There’s lots that has changed and lots that is about to change for me. I’ve been feeling so stuck in my usual day to day life that I have decided to really step up and out of my comfort zone.
Firstly I am now doing reception at our church in Eastgate every Friday which I am loving. The atmosphere is brilliant and I love all the interaction.
Secondly I have had an interview at a local hospice for a volunteer position. I have been offered the position and I’m just waiting for the references to come back. I will be working with the day patients in a creative capacity. Basically facilitating crafts for those who would like to take part at any level. The idea is to bring colour, positivity and joy to the patients. How exciting is that? It’s only a Tuesday but it is every week.
I am also helping to host a new kids programme at the church after school on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are obviously going to be one of my busiest days now. It is just for 6 weeks to start and if it’s successful we will do more in the future.
Lastly I’ve been asked if I would like to contribute some art to an art exhibition that is being held at Eastgate. When they first asked I thought “why are they asking me?” but once I had some time to think about it I felt pretty excited. I always fancy doing painting but never seem to put the time aside for it. Now that I have committed to it I will have to make the time. The theme is the beach, couldn’t be more perfect for me. We have been asked to do 3 small ish sized canvasses but it doesn’t have to be just paint, we can use any kind of mediums we want. I’m thinking I might use some of the driftwood that I have been collecting (hence the picture).
So that’s a bit about what I am and will be up to. I will be sharing about all of it as it unfolds.
What do you have planned? What would you like to do?
Have a wonderful weekend.
