Long time no blog

Wow, it's been nearly a month and a half since my last post. I haven't really had anything to say, and not much to show off either.

Things have been very busy around here lately - we're going away overseas very soon which is taking much organising. We've been searching for (and have hopefully found!) a new school for L & M which has been pretty stressful. All our weekends seem to have been full of kids activities and illness has been and gone and come back again. Not to mention the most boring job in the world completely sapping all of my energy. Busy, busy, busy.

I have finished another Milo recently though. I winged it with this one (although the larger sizes are now available with the pattern purchase I believe) - it's sized to fit my nearly 8yo, although I probably could have made it a bit roomier in the body for him. Still, it fits nicely and he seems to like it. And it's another Shop-the-Stash project off my needles (which means yarn out of my stash).

Speaking of Shop-the-Stash, I think I've been doing a bit more shopping-and-stashing, than shopping-the-stash, but it's the thought that counts right? I do look to the stash when I'm ready to start something new. I'm not buying new yarn to make projects with. I'm buying yarn to add to the stash. Then I can shop it.

Anyway, that's all from me for now. I don't expect I'll blog again before we go away, and in fact I'm not sure I'll blog again at all. I'm not really feeling the motivation for it right now. That could be due to all the craziness and illness that has been through here lately, so I'll see what kind of motivation (and energy!) the warmer weather brings with it when we return from our holiday.

Changing schools is so stressful, isn't it? If it's any reassurance, we're thrilled with our new school & the girls have settled in really well. It's like they were there all along! Which is the new school you've decided on?

Have a great trip too! When do you leave?

That is reassuring, thanks Mel :) I actually think the stress is for myself and not necessarily for how they will go with the change. I'm sure they will be fine lol It's been a long search though, hopefully it's finally over.

we are off towards the middle of next month. looking forward to a break :)

I totally understand the lack of blogging motivation, what with the work and the kids and the school and the holiday planning. Just remember that blogging is no-obligation and will be here waiting for you when you're ready again! Have a lovely holiday, I hope it revives you and gives you lots of time to do the things you want :)
