Back from the brink...

... of becoming a non-blogger!

Blogging just hasn't been my thing for a little while. I expect I'll continue to come and go a bit. It's pretty hard to get anything done around here! Can't really blog endlessly about getting the kids up and dressed, changing the nappies, feeding Arj, not getting to the housework or the cooking, never mind the sewing endlessly. You (and I) would die of boredom.

To be honest (cos I'm not sure enough Mum's are) I've had some pretty low weeks and felt my emotions getting out of control. I feel like I'm getting past that stage now. Maybe it was hormonal - it seemed to coincide with my hair starting to fall out in a big way (Yay).

I have done a little bit of sewing. A pair of trousers for Arj and the beginnings of a quilt in American Jane's Wee Play fabric. I love them both and they've whetted my appetite for more sewing. Just got to work out how to get the kiddies to enjoy occupying themselves around me while I do it!

We managed to get away for a long weekend to Melbourne a while ago now. Had a lovely time wandering around the shops, botanical gardens and zoo. Had some great food and enjoyed the feel of being in the big smoke. Chloe, Arj and I had a lovely afternoon with Jen (Thanks so much for coming into the city to meet us) while Sam was cringing in the stands at the MCG watching his team disappoint him again!

Oh, yeah, and there's a few things listed on Etsy. Only what I have ready to go - I won't be making to order for a while.

Holy Shit Suse! that quilt is bloody fantastic. And Arj's pants.

Here's to your honesty, my friend. Many of us have been there and it's not too much fun.

Also great article in the Enterprise magazine.
Love to you and hope to see you soon.

hmm...your days are sounding very familiar to mine. Comforting to know I am not the only person round here losing all my hair as well!
The quilt looks great. I love the half white half pattern look, very refreshing.
Nice to have you back blogging too:)

Hi Suse,

I've missed you!! I love to read about Chloe and Arj, even if it is just a day of washing, nappy changes and entertaining a toddler.
Your readers/followers are definitely not bored!

I'm sorry to hear that you've had a difficult patch, please let me know if there's anything I can do. You know that I'm more than happy to drop by and give you a hand or just some kid free time on the sewing machine.

Beautiful crafting by the way :)

Hope to see you again real soon.

xx Jen in Melbourne

Oh I know, I know!! :D

The hair loss sucks too. But I think deep down we know we just have to soldier on, that there is light at the end of the tunnel (well, that's what I keep telling myself!).

If you can manage to sew for a bit then that's terrific - bugger the housework!
