This week has been so busy and i am not sure how to slow it down without shutting us all away from the world. The washing still piles up the dishes still need doing, cooking , cleaning etc.
Monday - worked daytime, volunteer training night time, one child sick
Tuesday - Drove 80km round trip for Flynn swimming for 1/2hour ( he loves it), baked all afternoon so Morgan could go on camp to day with homemade food instead of camp food cause she is Failsafe. Picked up a friends DS so had two boys home and a sick DD all afternoon , so break up fights and cooking YEAH.
Wednesday - Drove 80km again to go to dentist. Nanna looked after sick child. 1.5hour appoitment took 2.5hours in the chair and I ache now. Had to have a sleep this afternoon briefly cause I felt yuk. Morgan packed and sent on camp
Thurday - Supposed to be at work but sick child so having the day off, Very greatful that I might get some cleaning up done .
Friday - Work all day and then volunteer all night till 6am but no needed to go out unless ambo is called. Would be nice to get a job but that means someone is sick so maybe not.
Saturday - No plans just cleaning again and sorting out stuff for the following week. DH and DD off to hockey all day so just me and two younger kids.
Sunday - Hopefully rest day.
Think I should take a week off work just to slow down but that won't happen
Well I have no idea where the weeks go . I just don't seem to have time for alot of the things I want to do or need to do.
Since my last post I have finished as of last night the Kai-Mei and thoughly enjoyed the challenge. It appears that the left sock has one less repeat of the pattern but who cares , seriously no one is gonna be that close to my feet. I do love them but they did seem to take me along time like just over 2 weeks . The reason for this is because I have wasted a lot of knitting time I am told by a friend. I seem to have patterns that require 1. Me to think 2. Following a pattern in a book so not just on paper and all this means they are too hard to be portable.
Missed knitting opportunities in the last two weeks.
1. Flynn swimming lesson x 2 = 1hours 2. Girls swimming lesson x 2 = 1 hours 3. Numerous coffee shop visits with friends = (embarrsingly too many hours LOL) 4. Small snippets of time at home when i could pick up the needles
So you see this project would've been finished long ago but I choose hard patterns. Decision is made I now need to become a multiply project knitter.
I must confess I am a one project girl. I find i loose enthusiasum if I have more than one on the go LOL. I have no come out of the closest and will always have one plain boring project and one harder one mmore challenging one.
I love how they have turned out stripy and the pattern is just great. It did confuse me a little and I realised I had to let go of all how I have learnt about sock contruction when it came to the foot. Clear your mind and follow instructions.
Now just have to finish the second sock. Don't think SSS will set in just yet
