You’ve probably noticed I’ve been a bit slow with the blog posts lately. Life at home has been going so fast with so much on and the last thing on my mind has been my little blog. That’s probably because the first thing on my mind has been making sure I’m up at 5.30 am, that everyone has lunch made and in their bag, a clean uniform, their homework done, is it library, piano, sports or swimming day and just getting out the door on time. Three at school is definitely keeping me on my toes. Some of you are probably laughing because you are getting 5 or 6 out the door but I tell you that 3 is killing me. But we are doing it and we are getting there but man it is taking up all of my time. This is what it looks like at 5.30am when I’m making lunches.
I sit and try to do a bit of knitting in the car line or at home when I can. I’ve managed to finish the body and one sleeve and will aim to power through the second sleeve this weekend motivated by knowing that once I get onto the yoke that I’m in the home stretch. I really love working with Spring Cotton. It can be a bit splitty but has a lovely drape to it and is going to make the sweetest cardigan to donate to Dandelion this winter.
A new camera lens arrived in the mail for my birthday this month and I can’t wait to share a review with you. It is my first pro lens and is so big compared to the little 45mm I’ve been using and has been taking some great photos at home….I’m yet to take it outside as I just haven’t had the time. I’m loving the wide angle on it and the fact that it captures almost all of my whole kitchen in one shot!
After mucking up the days for a meeting I ordered myself an erin condren diary and it arrived this week and I am loving it. I’m so grateful to my readers for letting me know about them because I was like Erin who? But you can personalise it however you like and I kind of like having my diary now with all of my favourite people on the cover.
And another reason why things have been a bit quiet is that behind the scenes we’ve been selling our house and growing a baby. You know just a few little life events that have been going on here. I chose not to share the house because unfortunately someone had an alert set up for my suburb and the night it went on the internet they shared the address on my hate thread for everyone to see. It was very upsetting and you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been sharing less of the personal stuff after that all happened. But I’ve got more important things to worry about. Like finding a new home and maybe building our own, and of course the wonderful excitement of welcoming our 6th baby into our family. We just feel blessed beyond words.
And that my lovely readers is why things have been a bit quiet around here……………………I’m actually a little sad that we’ve sold our house but relieved at the same time. I wanted to stay a lot longer and love the views and space. But we made a decision to change schools for everyone and that is the reason for our move. Our kids love their new school, we have more choices with special schools when the time comes and we’re making some wonderful friends but will be so sad to leave friends here.
