Bright and early start thanks to little Edie Rose, she is a chirpy little early riser. Despite being super tired, it was the best start to the day, snuggled on the sofa with a cuppa and the babes at 5.30am...
So, in a bid to catch the worm I packaged up a couple of orders and finished a cream version of my crochet boot cuffs (all before 7am). I'm really excited to get these in the shop. Even though they're more of a winter accessory, I do think they'd look cute with bare legs, a skirt and boots for a summer evening...thoughts?
Reading. I've been reading. Very excited about this. I am notoriously bad for making time to read. I probably manage one maybe two books a year. Not because I don't enjoy reading, I love reading, but I think I'm too busy to do it, which I obviously am not, I managed it today! So, I am challenging myself to have finished 2 books by the end of the month. We'll see how I get on, but I have to give it a shot!
SO, its been a busy little weekend so far. Friday I went into a bit of a baking frenzy. I haven't made the time to bake like that for ages and it was rather therapeutic, especially doing it with charlie, he just loves baking!
I was on a mission to bake wholesome bits for the babes. Having gathered up a selection on various new recipes, I had a nice selection I wanted to try. The first three were: Fruity breakfast muffins (made with the boy - he made banana, I made apple and cinnamon), cheese and marmite scones (actually rather tasty) and a lentil quiche, which I thought was rather nice, alas, no-one else really agreed...bit disappointing given the fact that it took nearly 4 hours to make!! Anywho, I'll post pics and recipes tomorrow.
I also finally managed to get some more chunky crochet wrist warmers in the shop. Today, mint (can't get enough of mint), oatmeal and grey. Yes, I know its still July, but all this rain makes it feel like winter! I like winter. Don't hate me but I also am rather pleased at how well my rhubarb is doing thanks to the rain!
So, alot of the time I think about how I can do things better. For me, becoming a parent makes me want to be a much better version of myself. I want to give my little people a happy loving home, a stable upbringing and I want them to thrive. This is, I'm sure, what all parents want. Lately, I feel I've been busy and hectic and lost a little focus on what's important. So after having a little word with myself, the FRESH START begins. With it, the excitement of three whole days off work to be spent with Charlie, Edie Rose and Ross. Yi-P-EEE.
The weekend is planned in my OCD organisational nirvana head and I intend to make the absolute best of the precious time we have...stay tuned...
