Back to normal
I don't know about the rest of you but I am finding it incredibly difficult getting myself and the children back into some kind of routine now that the schools have finally gone back.
I was really enjoying the extended break from school that all the lovely snow had given us. I was enjoying lying in bed all snuggled up cozily with the children and not having to get up and get ready for school, enjoying the lazy days watching children's films and all the fun playing out in the snow. Not to mention the endless cups of tea which just had to be accompanied by some kind of yummy calorie laden snack ~ chocolate or biscuits or cake or a mixture of the aforementioned yumminess!
All that has now been replaced with trying to get small people into bed at a reasonable time ~ even though they claim that they can't possibly go to sleep because they are very definitely not tired. It is a completely different kettle of fish when you are trying to coax them out of their cozy warm bed in the morning and trying desperately to get them to eat breakfast before going to school!
I am also finding it really difficult to get myself back into any sort of crafting routine too. I have a couple of projects that I have been working on but find I am struggling to find the motivation to actually complete them ~ I think I may have a touch of the January Crafting Blues! There are also lots of crafty ideas swimming about in my head but at the moment they are all whirling about and making me feel rather overwhelmed indeed!
Did you see the little woolly bunny peeking out at you from the crocheted jam jar? She is one of the things that I have been working on for ages ~ one of the things that has been NEARLY finished for a good few months and just needs a few finishing touches. I decided this morning that enough was enough and set about crocheting two little woolly bunny feet, a pretty little lilac flower and I also made the teeniest little fluffy pom pom for her little bunny tail. I've still got to attach them to her little bunny body and will let you see the finished result sometime very soon.
Enjoy your afternoon ~ whatever you may be doing............:O)x
