I hereby present the sum total of my creative efforts this week…
…the toe of one sock…
(But at least I got that far without running out of yarn!).
To be fair, these are great socks. The yarn is perfect,it’s Kells Sport Merino courtesy of the Three Irish Girls and is unforgettably named ‘If it Ain’t Baroque, Don’t Fix It‘. It’s 100% merino and knits up beautifully densely. These will be very cosy I’m sure. my son will be test driving them this week. I’ll let you know!
This week was a tough one. LOTS to do at work – still working more than I should to sort out the mess I inherited – and coming home and being Mrs Super Housewife….and not sleeping enough. Of course the inevitable happened…and yesterday I spent most of the day wiped out with a migraine. (Which is why there was no blogging – sorry about that!)
Somehow I need to learn to pace myself better. I guess it will come when I get used to being at work again and when I’m over that initial tiredness that always comes with a new job. I can see that I need to learn to slow down and take down time as down time and not try to do a week’s worth of everything in a day. I’m just going to have to accept that some things won’t get done. That will be a hard one. I’ll have to try to switch off the control freak part of me.
What I would like to do, although I don’t know if I’ll actually be able to pull it off, is to make Fridays my day….days where I don’t just do housework and shopping, days when I can sew or do sport or relax and read a book with no guilt whatsoever. Whether that’s something I can actually do, I don’t know, but I’d like to give it a try.
A question to finish for those of you who do juggle work and family successfully…..what advice would you give someone in my situation?
Have a great weekend,
