Early start and self care

Taking time to get organised

Hello,

What I am working on?

I haven’t had much time to do any knitting or crocheting today but I have decided I want my next big finished project to be my Penguono. I started this way back in August but I put it away when the Stephen West Mkal started. I have very nearly finished the main body and sides, then I just need to add sleeves, collar and border. Can it be done by Christmas I wonder?

It is not an easy project to photograph. Oh look I am wearing my Strictly Socks today.

What I have done today?

We had a very early start to the day Oliver woke around 4.50am. He was then very upset he had to go to school today, He was off sick the past two Monday and Tuesdays so because he loves routine he thought he wasn’t going today. There were tears, lots of them.

So once the boys were at school I decided to have a day of self care. What does self care mean to you? Sometimes I think its resting when your body needs it but today I tidied the house and prepared some healthy food. When the house is organised and meals are prepared it makes teatime a lot less stressful, so getting these jobs done during the day really helps de-stress me. I also had a lot of washing to catch up on as I tend not to do any over the weekends because Oliver really struggles to cope with the washing machine noise.
