Don’t Forget the Snowdrops

06 Feb

Earlier this week I was running forest families workshops with children at Gorebridge library as part of Love Your Libraries week. During the workshops I told to the children why I like to go outside. I explained I feel relaxed and it gives me ideas for stories.

Six workshops later, I prepared to head back to Edinburgh. I’ve got writing deadlines just now so I had no time to lose. But then I changed my mind. I realised making the time to go outside would make all the difference to my time inside writing. I needed to do what I’d been telling the children. I needed to go outside.

It was a sunny day so me and the Educator I’d been working with took an hour out before our trip back to Edinburgh to visit Vogrie Country Park. We were met by these snowdrops:

That hour made all the difference. It was so good to see the snowdrops and remember there’s a world changing and growing all around us. If we stay indoors we miss out on moments like this.
