Hello. Did you all have a lovely weekend? We spent most of the weekend at home, cleaning and de-cluttering but rewarded ourselves with an afternoon at the beach playing cricket.
I can't thank you enough for all of your lovely comments about my new foray into sewing as well as your helpful tips. I love that I can come on here and be in the company of so many like-minded and creative souls. I really appreciate your help :-)
I also forgot to thank you for all your encouraging comments (and empathy) about Flynn's sleeping habits, or lack thereof. He had his 6 week check last week and apparently his 'bad' week can be put down to a growth spurt that often occurs around 6 weeks. Now why didn't I think of that?!? What a goose. That explains all the crankiness between feeds and not sleeping well. It seems 4 years is long enough to wipe some baby things from the old memory. He's back to his happy, smiley little self. I am still working on him loving his cot but as a few of you said, it's early days.
Here are four things that have made me happy this past week. I missed last week so I've doubled up a bit on some items.
2. I picked up this cute Vintage Biscuit Tin for $5 (Contents Included). This was from a second-hand store where everything is a standard $2 so I peeked inside and was so happy that I did because look what I found - a huge pile of embroidery threads. I have no idea if this is a bargain or a rip-off but I love all of their gorgeous colours and decided to buy it. You know, for when I get some time to do a bit of embroidery :-) Does anyone know what the numbers relate to?
3. The hot and dry weather has brought the Wallabies into the house paddock and even though we see them all the time up the hill I still get a thrill seeing them out the window in the garden at dusk and dawn.
4. Finally, the purchase of an electric pencil sharpener has brought all sorts of happy to my life, especially after a thorough de-cluttering session resulted in a ginormous pile of blunt pencils to be strewn across the kitchen bench . I tried to resist the urge to sort them into colours but as you can see the temptation was too great. With most of the house in a general state of chaos the look of them all lined up makes me happy beyond belief. I'm betting they'll be a jumbled mess of liquorice Allsorts by the end of the week but I'll cope with that just fine :-)
I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
