Without planning too, I have taken a month completely away from the blog. Once again though I am back and hopefully this return will be uninterrupted!
It has been a challenging few weeks in many ways (I’ve just realised I even missed my little mans 4 month update – Don’t worry I can catch you up in 3 words… Did. Not. Sleep.) coping with a Jekyll & Hyde baby boy who is wonderful in the daytime and a non-sleeping little terror through the night while also adjusting to our new morning routine as Emma starts nursery school for the first time.
This leaves me at a whole new level of sleep deprivation and I find myself continually marvelling and thanking God for my ability to still function as a rational human being.
Which I do, most of the time. Give or take the odd ‘sudden crying mess in the church creche’ moments. Naturally I save those moments for the most convenient and private of times. Ha.
(All of this being said 3 out of the last 4 nights have been a vast improvement. I mean I got a 4 hour stretch last night!)
So blogging has not been too high on my list of things to do, but now Emma is settled at nursery and I suddenly have some daytime hours that I can actually use. I should probably be sleeping but this more enjoyable.
I have been able to steal minutes in the evening to still do some crochet. This is basically for my sanity. I think once I might have comfort eaten Lindt chocolate instead but now I’m dairy free yarn has fully taken over. I crochet to stay sane.
I am currently working on a children’s cardigan which I am actually pattern testing for the lovely Marta of @mrsdaftspaniel over on Instagram.
I also have a little slightly retro jumper in the works for Matthew which I am designing (making up as I go) – no promises of a pattern we’ll see how it turns out!
All things going to plan, I’ll be back soon to show you more of each.
I hope September has kicked of well for you all!!
