Hello, sorry I have been away for so long, but I am now back with a vengeance.
Today Geek Girl has her first day at nursery, it’s actually an hour to see how she will like it, I have serious doubts that I will be able to get her to come home without a fight. Now because of the rapid ageing of my youngest child I find I am about to have three hours to myself during the day, THREE HOURS, I have not had any length of time with myself for over six years. What to do? What to do? This is the scary part;
I am changing my routine, this distresses me, and thrills me, and makes me “itchy”. I do not adjust to change well at all, I need a run up to any break in my routine never mind a full on change. Yesterday I did all the cleaning in one go, usually I clean a room a day. I am not talking tidying I am moving the furniture, climbing ladders, and scrubbing the floors on my hands and knees. I DID IT, I cleaned the house from top to bottom in under three hours, so that’s the first change done the rest will be easy. or will it?
I plan on spending my three hours on a Tuesday doing all the computer things I put off because The Hellions won’t let me complete a task in one go, you know, pattern editing and listing, self promotion, and yes, blogging.
Wednesday will be my “quiet” day and I will be relying on Crochet Widower picking Geek Girl up from nursery as I have a 15 ish mile walk planned, to clear my head, sort out which projects to start which ones to queue and which ones to ditch, while listening to too loud rock music.
Thursday and Friday will be hook time, purely, and solely hook time. Pattern writing should go quicker having that time to concentrate and even FINISH A ROW IN ONE GO.
Weekends will be the same old blur of paint, glue, geo caching, and noise.
So these are my grand plans, the major life change that goes along with the ever changing ways of children, I am hoping to get some patterns submitted to magazines, I am also hoping the change in routine doesn’t leave me poking at the internet while my brain tells me I have forgotten to do something . We’ll see, and you’ll see me more often, promise.
