It’s been a great end to what has felt like a long week, despite us having had the bank holiday Monday. I blame sleep deprivation. I was so ready for Friday to come. Friday is little T.’s nursery day which means that baby A. and I get some girly time together and I get to take my day at a slightly slower pace. Although I did have a rather long to-do list, which was still rather long by the end of the day. The day started well with baby A. treating me to a 2 hour nap! It was glorious. I sat and knitted the whole time.
Even better was that I’ve finally got to the stripy section of my shawl! Stripes make me so happy. When she woke up we had some lunch together… (well, I ate lunch whilst she gnawed away at her muslin…) before heading out down our local high street so I could buy a few bits and pieces; including some fresh flowers for our living room and kitchen. There’s a new fresh flowers van so I had to check it out. The choice wasn’t the best but I think I did ok… I love that portmeirion vase (I have the matching teapot and sugar bowl too). And these brighten the time I spend washing up no end.
For baby A’s final nap before collecting little T. from nursery I thought I should probably be sensible and remind myself about the logistics of weaning A. onto solids. Not without a cup of tea, in my favourite mug. I think all hot drinks should be drunk out of large mugs, especially Cath Kitson mugs. It’s only been a little over 18 months that I weaned T. but my memory is failing me. Tomorrow is the big day for baby A. She’s showing all the signs of being ready, she’s just shy of 6 months and this mama needs the sleeping to improve! I had been dreading weaning but now I feel rather excited by it. Before I knew it it was time to pick little T. up from nursery.
Now evening is upon us. Thus I am off to have some quality sofa time, in my PJs, with my knitting needles and a couple of balls of yarn (yay for stripyness). Hope you guys have a great weekend.
