I need to get back to writing this blog daily, if at all possible. I think I have slipped back into focussing on more negative aspects of life, and that is not a good thing for me.
That said, there have been Positive Things that I have noticed and patted myself on the back for. I managed to do some tidying and clearing out that has been bugging me for weeks – you can now see the utility room worktop and draining board, and the dining room is no longer home to several carrier bags of fabric and other craft stuff – and what is more, I have tidied out some storage and found proper places for said fabric and craft stuff to live. It is infuriating that things don’t stay tidy for very long – not with a husband and two teenagers in the house – but it is a huge positive that I managed to do them at all, so I am going to be pleased with that.
I’ve also been doing more crochet and knitting – I’ve finished another crocheted blanket for the Mumsnet Mini-hugs, and I’ve finished knitting a little sheep for N’s christmas stocking. It’s actually a pattern he saw a couple of years ago, and asked me to knit for him, but I never got round to it and he’s forgotten all about it – so it will be a nice surprise, I think. I’ll put a picture of the sheep on here when he’s finished, but for the moment, here’s a picture of the little blanket.
