I’m struggling to find time to get on the computer lately. Most of my life is spent in the car getting everyone to where they need to be and when we get home everyone has homework. And they need my computer. Bug Club, Duolingo, Maths Online, Canvas and so on. We’ve had to set 30 minute limits for each child with a bit extra if you have an assignment to do. I don’t know whether you do homework as soon as they get in the door or after dinner but I’ve found as they’ve gotten older I don’t need to remind them to do their homework so kind of let them do it when they want so long as you are in bed by 8.30.
My alarm goes off at 5.50am each morning and I have to say that we haven’t been late this year (touch wood) and are running a tight ship. Well so long as you don’t look at the kitchen sink or beds until I get home from the school run. And the only thing that is getting me through the long car journeys are ABC 702 – I’m becoming a mini expert in various topics – and my CD collection too.
As busy as life is we are counting down until Chester arrives. We learnt from a teacher to get some pet supplies from the Reject shop which saved some money. We got a dog crate delivered so we can do some crate training. We’ve got a bed, bowl, toys and are almost puppy ready.
The knitting is kind of coming along. I’ve knitted one and a half bunnies and am onto a cute little red and white striped jumper. I’m leaving assembly until the end.
The alpaca from Adagio is just gorgeously soft. I’ve now decided the more natural the wool for the bunnies the better and this is going to be gorgeous. I did go down a size on my needles from the pattern as it’s quite fine for an 8 ply but it’s knitting up beautifully. When I actually get the chance to knit.
Hope you’re getting more time to yourself or to craft than me…………..
