running to keep up

Ever have the feeling that you are running to keep up? I am constantly tired at the moment, have been full of cold for the last couple of weeks and am struggling to keep on top of everything.

I would quite like to hit the pause button about now. Give myself a few days in bed and then another bonus week to catch up on everything I feel behind on.

Am not sure if it’s this time of year, but I do love a good nap, especially on a wet windy day. To be all tucked up and warm in bed, whilst the rain is pitter-pattering against the window pain, is pretty lovely. Thought I would share with you some pictures of my bedside table. I had a tidy up and now it’s even more inviting than it was before.

My folks are coming this week so I am hoping they will do some toddler entertaining whilst I get some bits and pieces done – or squeeze a bit of secret napping in. I have in the back of my mind though, that this may not be as easy as I think. As a consequence of nursery, Bailey has become a little clingy, a little ‘only mummy will do’, where as previously she would happily let me get on with something, as long as someone else was keeping her company.

I hoping this feeling of being a little pulled in too many directions will go, and will go soon. I don’t want to end up feeling like I am not doing anything properly and am hurrying to get things done. It has been said that I have the tendency to be a bit of a perfectionist. However I would argue that this is a good characteristic to have when applied to the certain areas of your life. For example it is a quality I do not want to lose when it comes to my making. I always try to finish the garments I sew beautifully, and pride myself on the fact that they are hand-crafted.

For those who do not know, we are in the middle of moving house. Of all the things I am doing at the moment, this is the main drain on my time and energy. I know once we are finally in the new house – even if we are surrounded by boxes for months – things will instantly feel better, as I won’t have this big part of my brain constantly thinking about solicitor silliness.

If things are a bit quiet on the blog for the next month, you will know why. I will try to pop in every now and again for a quick “hello, how are you?”
