an ordinary day
We have been in the land of snot, whining and not eating and baby/toddler clinging to leg and pulling your pyjama pants down and unable to do much of those little things you had planned. Interspersed with moments of laughter and then going all flopsy and tears tears tears.
I stayed up late consumed doing a new crotchet pattern as I am participating with down to earth's dishcloth swap. Trying out a few options as want it to be something pretty but very usable. But this morning realised that had missed a few treble stitches and it has gone all wonky. Oh well, easy to undo and do in the light of day. Really love Kirsty's coathanger today.
Our dresser has arrived and have started filling it up. It is pretty rustic and thinking when a bit more time is available how to spruce it up. To keep it all white with a fresh coat of paint after a sand back or paint the inside only with a lovely light pastel colour? The little ceramic slippers were a present for Che from his Aunty Anne. Anne is a very talented artist.
The day has been gloriously sunny and the morning as been a just filled with washing, watering our pansies and pots of vegies seedlings. We have planted out beetroot, celery, rocket, rainbow chard, various lettuces and leeks and and dill. I guess that probably is an acheivement given our little man has been so out of sorts today.
Sometimes there is this nagging dichotomy of enjoying the moment and then being troubled by anticipating the future. Now that he is now asleep (finally) and there is some time to take a breath. It would be nice to have someone here to have a cup of tea with. I wonder how many other Mama's are thinking the same thing at this very moment in time.
Bloggy hugs and a nice cup of tea to you.
