Mothering Sunday is looming


Here in the UK, it is Mother’s Day on Sunday. To give it the traditional title it is Mothering Sunday. My Mum prefers this, one of the many reasons I am glad to be a cardmaker because I don’t think I have seen a card in the shops using this expression in at least the last thirty years.

In all fairness, I should have known it was approaching, if I watched more TV (the channels with adverts) I would have done. I would have made the card for Mum in the same creative session as I made my sister-in-law’s birthday card. But I didn’t.

Now, I have to tear myself away from my online coding course and put my creative hat back on. I think I’ll make things easier for myself and do a digital design and print that off.

I am so curious to know if you have more than one hobby or interest do you manage to rotate between them with ease? I find I am very physical and I really struggle to switch off one part of my brain and focus on another.

My thought process is this is made more difficult because I am exactly 50/50 left-brained and right-brained. So my pastimes include the creative ones like my card making and diamond painting and the data-driven ones like coding/web design and genealogy. It is more difficult to switch between the extremes, whereas going from Cardmaking to diamond painting or colouring is not such a stretch.

Have you ever done one of those simple tests to see if you have a prominent brain side? If so how do your interests and pastimes compare with your strengths? I find these things fascinating.

Now, I must get cracking on the card and get it in the post, first class seems to be taking a lot longer than it does when we are not in a pandemic.
