Even though the weather has cooled favourably the outside 'to do' list is somewhat overwhelming. Add to this a nearly four year old who sticks to me like glue and wants to know about everything I pick up. Although thankfully I seemed to have avoided the "why.... why..... why....." phase as I mostly try to answer questions with a question.
So what do I do?
Plus this -
Then something for my sister which I dare not show yet because her birthday is next week.
And now this -
Even the sewing machine has taken a back seat. Every time I approach it I loose all enthusiasm (except for the family mending - for some reason I still enjoy this...), so I figured "why push myself?" Why struggle through a project only to make mistakes and burst into tears when I'm not happy with the end result. I'm happy knitting at the moment, it means I can be with the children with needles in hand, ready to put aside when I'm needed. The outside 'to do' jobs are still there, but my children are only young once and I need to make the most of that while I can.
