Slow days

Not much happening here apart from sitting on the couch or sitting on my mum's couch.

On Tuesday night I twisted my foot badly and can't get around very well. Such a bummer! I had lots of things I wanted to do this week just gone. Ah well, it is nice to have an excuse to rest sometimes. My very kind (long suffering maybe) Mum has been here for three days, with some help from Dad as well, doing the very important job of carrying Arj between me, his cot and his play mat. Chloe has had a wonderful time playing with Mum and Dad too.

I must admit though, now that it's Saturday and Sam is home, I'm totally, totally over sitting on my butt! I'll set myself up to do huge pile of hair tie and clip assembly then at least I'd feel productive.

Arj had his six week milestone on Monday. Time is flying by. He seems so big now and yet so small as well. How's that for a sensible sentence? I know what I mean.

I've been knitting a Pea Green beanie (in red) for Chloe from a gorgeous pattern from one very impressive lady I met at Niche Market. Mine is deviating quite a lot from her pattern as I have a thinner yarn, the wrong sized needles - a bit small for my yarn - as a certain knitting helper has stashed one somewhere unknown and have just guessed at a reasonable number of stitches. My yarn gradually changes colour too and I decided after knitting almost the entire thing that I wanted the colours in a different spot so started again. So I've cleverly made a one night project last for quite a few night more. Good when you're stuck to the sofa!

No photos today - camera battery is flat and I can't get down the stairs to search for the charger in the pile of unpacked boxes (Yikes down there. As I said, I had lots to do this week!

oh no! You poor sweetheart... hope your foot get's better quickly. I'm looking foward to seeing your beanie in red... I do love red! xxx

I agree, being down is a good time for knitting. Been there, done that! Hope you are feeling better soon!

Ouch! You poor thing, especially with 2 little ones to look after.

Arj is six weeks? Wow... I'm only marvelling that my wee one is 14 weeks today - she's not so 'wee' any more either!

Hope you're on your feet again soon. :)

Jinx! I had a spectacular tumble on Friday afternoon at the front of a major supermarket in the middle of a large shopping centre. Why is the first reaction to pretend it didn't happen? My ankle hurt so much, but I gathered myself and limped off as boldly as I could. It was a teenage boy that approached me to see if I was okay. (Congrats to the parents who fostered his kindness). I was up and around soon after (it was the embarrassment that got me!!).

Wishing you a speedy recovery :)
