Hello my lovelies....just bobbing into the Attic to say a quick hi-de-hi to you all and to let you know that Things are Good here.
My days and nights seem to be extremely loooong and very full at the moment (as you would expect) and many of my usual day to day pleasures have simply been buried under the demands of new Motherhood. I can't remember the last time I did any crochet, I simply have not found a way to fit it in just yet, but rest assured it won't be this way for long.
Some things continue to bring me much needed comfort in times of need :: a simple jug of sweetly scented hyacinth stems, good chocolate, endless cups of steaming hot tea, some delicious magazines to get carried away in. The usual Good Things that rock my simple little boat.
J returned to work today after doing a rather fantastic job on the home front last week. He learnt to work the oven and the washing machine. He went forth and purchased food and cooked us nutritious meals. And today I missed him.
The Little People and I managed to get out of the house on time this morning and in good spirits for our first school run with Pushchair Addition. It was cold and grey and foggy, but I really enjoyed being back in the Real World again, breathing in the cold winters air, stretching my legs after what has felt like a long time closed up indoors with my feet up. It felt Good.
And well....the rest of the day was fully taken up with caring for Little B. H'e's a very time consuming Little Bundle for sure.
There he is look, a little peek of him as he sleeps snuggled in amongst a bed of colourful Hooky Goodness. His daytime naps are taken in the Big Chair in the light of the bay window as we are trying to clear up some mild jaundice and I am told that daylight is the thing to do it.
I am resting up when I can during the day and going to bed ridiculously early in order to cope with my new job as round the clock Milk Tanker. It's not a bad job. There are some very lovely snugglesome perks.
Like I say, Things are Good.
