Time to be you.

I know this is something most mums feel at some point, but at the moment it is my turn.

At the moment I feel like it is really difficult to find time to do things that are just for me and that I like doing. I can't paint oo knit when N is awake, and by the time he is in bed I only have the energy for basic things that don't require much brainpower. I think the problem at the moment is that I'm finding getting about more difficult so going for a walk or doing some gardening, which are things I can normally do with N, are becoming less and less possible. Not helped by the wonderful weather that we currently have, cold, wet and windy.

So rather then just sit here and whinge about it I have decided to try and be a bit more proactive and set aside time for me to do things.

I have barely painted since last June, so I am setting myself a target of doing at least one painting before the baby gets here. At the moment I'm thinking I might paint this but not definitely decided.

Knitting wise I have been doing some, but not as much as I'd like. I have 2 very nearly finished baby bits that I need to finish, I'm just not very good at the making up bit. So I might try and get myself to a local knitting group to see if I can get some help. I know that there are plenty of people that will happily babysit for a couple of hours in the day if I can find a daytime group. I'm also going to try and make this for my niece as it is actually fairly simple and shouldn't require much thinking.

So I shall try and keep you updated and hopefully there will be some crafty updates!

Skeins have a knitting grp on a weds eve from 7pm. I can never get there cos Rik is away as you know. Can anyone take N off your hands for a couple of hours in the day so you can have some "me" time? Lovely picture and hat. x
