So unlike me I was in bed for the most part of two days this week. I’m not quite sure how illness managed to tie in with Win’s nursery days, but it did, and I was so grateful. Ru and I slept three hours both afternoons and I was in bed by 8pm. I felt better yesterday and spent the day with my mum. I’ve ordered a pregnancy pillow because I officially can’t sleep on my back anymore. I am so sad to wave goodbye to sleeping on my back for a few months! I will miss you.
Jared and I haven’t seen each other much this week so I think we’ll be planning our Krakow trip on the way to the airport this morning! I have printed our boarding passes off at the eleventh hour – as usual.
About the UK’s upcoming involvement with Syria. I really don’t envy politicians having to vote on such huge decisions. My initial feelings are that it’s not a good one though – I can’t see an end to it all and I feel there is going to be so much heartache.
Now Ru can talk and understand lots of different questions I love watching the two of them play together. Of course, they still wind each other up, but Win has taken much more of an interest in Ru, and they’ve played quietly for long periods of time over the last few weeks. It’s added a completely new dynamic to their play.
I’ve had my first few sessions listening to Christmas music. More is more – I say! I’ve also got a few choir items planned for the church choir, so I’m excited to get started on those.
On Monday night I had ten friends and family member round to make wreaths and it was such good fun. I love having people in our home and I loved seeing how different everybody’s turned out.
I made cinnamon rolls and caramel shortbread for the evening – both of which definitely need improving!
Literally the same blacks jeans and same few jumpers all week! Plus, pyjamas and my glasses for two days. All rather unattractive.
I wanted to quickly share a few things I loved from The Handmade Christmas Fair:
1. geo-fleur – all the items are handmade by such a lovely lady. The most incredible hanging planters and terrariums using leather, glass, concrete, copper and wool. So, so beautiful. My mum bought me a macrame kit for Christmas and I can’t wait to open it!
2. Block Craft – I loved these Indian block crafts and spent a ridiculous amount of time at the stall trying to decide what to buy. They are so beautiful and so versatile. Donkeys, camels, fruits, plants, ferns, plus so many patterns and prints.
Happy weekend lovely people!
