|My mum and Batman|
Mum and my sister arrived on Christmas Eve and that marked the start of the festive celebrations for us!
Yesterday was spent at home. Toys, books, lunch, wine and dancing in our kitchen followed by an evening of Downton Abbey and knitting (YAY!). My sister and I sat up crafting, chatting and watching Dirty Dancing until midnight and she completed her first ever crochet Finished Object.

In the interest of full disclosure I must tell you I absolutely hate the yarn. It's the most awful stuff to crochet with. I made my first crochet cushion covers with this back in June, and at the time thought maybe it was so hard to use because I was a total novice. Now that I have more experience and several other (cheery) crochet projects under my belt, I can confirm that it's still a nightmare to use - just far too splitty and hard work. I am desperately trying to use the scraps up for any little projects that come along, but it's like the yarn version of the Magic Porridge Pot, no matter how much I use there is more in the basket, and I am sure it's looking at me in an accusatory way *shudder*
PS I'm not sure what's happening with the formatting tonight - blame Blogger not lack of attention.
|Contemplating life's big questions|
When I was expecting my second child, I had this terrible fear that I couldn’t possibly love another child the way I loved my son – it often kept me awake and in tears at night. Towards the end of my pregnancy I became obsessed with this overwhelming worry that I wouldn’t be able to love them both the same, and the guilt that I would ruin My Boy’s life and our relationship that was so strong after 2 years and 9 months in our own little bubble.

(Edited to add: I should have mentioned that due to the 2.5mm needles and 4 ply yarn, this actually took a couple of hours to make. If you're planning to make one, don't be fooled by the minuscule size and keep your kids hanging around waiting for it, wait until they are in bed!!)
