** It’s quiet here tonight…
So, sooooo quiet!!
** I am struggling to get used to Neil being away and parenting solo again, while not feeling very well myself and a lot going on regardless, so it’s been an overwhelming few days…
** We also had some delays come up with getting Neil’s work visa and if that doesn’t come through on time then it will impact on all of our plans…
** So I started to have a little wobble and panic – “oh my goodness, are we doing the right thing by moving??!!” etc etc… I guess it was always inevitable that would happen sometime.
** However, then I found out that my Dad was in hospital for a few days over Easter. My parents didn’t tell me at the time because we had guests staying and there wasn’t anything I could do, but it was a big reminder to me of why I want to be closer to them!!
** Today I came home from doing the groceries to a surprise parcel from Mr Flutter…
** It gave me my first real smile of the day and cheered me up no end.
** Then I had a kind friend come over, lend a hand with moving some stuff around, and let me vent to her…
** It’s amazing the result that two people’s simple acts of kindness had on my mindset and I’m feeling so much better equipped to cope with everything coming up.
** I still haven’t worked on my quilt that I want to finish before I leave here. And if I’m going to get that long armed by my wonderful friend Jeannette like I’d planned then I really better get a move on.
I did get as far as taking it out to show my Mother-in-law and placing it next to my sewing machine, but something tells me that’s not quite enough 😉
** I have got something to show for myself this week though;
** I decided that since it is “Autumn” I would drag out my granny square blanket that I started last year, and last night I finished off a block again.
** Only it’s not feeling very cool & Autumnal since the weather temps have spiked back up to the late 30’s again.
** The girls are dying to wear the new flannelette pyjama’s they got for Easter and I’m dying for a change of menu from Summer food, but at the same time I’m enjoying the warm weather while we have it because I know I’ll miss it once we move!
Ok time to go do another granny square before I fall asleep
