Moving on....

I am trying really hard not to let external factors get me down, but they do. The natural events that have occurred over the last few months seem to stop me in my boots at times. Before I know it, a week has passed without having achieved much at all. Then when I do achieve something crafty, there are just set backs which make me doubt what I have done (is it all worth the effort??).

Anyway, I think everything has been cleared up now.... goods received, money paid, and apart from the small earthquake which apparently just hit Wellington (where my husband is due to head later this year for the Rugby World Cup) I think I am ready to move on again.

I am heading to the Sew It Together meet this month, and joined in with the Name Tag Swap. Name tag has now been received by the recipient, so I will post the picture of the name tag here.

I have also been settling in to my new 'life' as the Mum of a school student. I have actually felt like it has been a pretty big adjustment for me (James has had no trouble settling in). My day is cut so short, with drop off, pick up and a toddler sleep in between. So much for all the sewing time I thought I was going to have, lol.

I think he is up to 7 merit certificates, an SRC award for 'Respect' (of all things) and he was elected SRC rep for his Kindy class. On top of that he has had a great transition - 5.5 years of torturing us has finally paid off.

And for good measure, my gorgeous, but very clingy (said with gritted teeth) Layla.

Love the nametag :)
I hear you about the transition to school- except it's the transition to 3 days of preschool I've just made. I have to pack lunches, make sure her bag is packed, drop off, pickup... Things that lots of people do every day but I've only just started! At this point I count it a good day if we haven't forgotten anything.
So much for the crafting time too!
Hope it's getting easier as the days go on :)

I know what you mean Belinda - and ther are days when you look at waht you should be doing around thehouse but it's no way near as inviting as a bit of time to yourself!
I hope you get some crafting time soon.

Thank you Belinda for the beautiful nametag. You have captured the B- thing so well!
All the best with the school transition- I agree it is often just as impacting on the parents as the kids. I'm finding it exhausting this year- maybe it's the heat!! It sounds like your son is going great guns!!

Cameron keeps saying how much sewing time I will have if I have a baby.....I don't think that is so.

Look at those gorgeous children. School hours totally ruin your sewing time, it gets worse, high school is longer but more taxing after hours with all the assignments, love Posie
