Flashes of pink
Random photos from a few days wanderings. I've been wearing the pink scarf I made. Quite like it after all. I shan't show you a close-up of my horrible knitting though.
The boys have been scooting and skateboarding everywhere they can. I took them to the indoor skatepark today. It's a luxury for mums I think - somewhere warm and dry and soft to sit. I looked round at all the different books being read. More luxury! Uninterrupted daytime reading time. This is almost unheard of. I'm all for activities where I can slope off and read for a bit. Despite being squashed on a sofa next to about fifteen boys with Smells Like Teen Spirit blasting out it qualified as a good time. Better than at the barber's yesterday when I forgot my book and was consigned to reading the Daily Mail. It never ceases to amaze me that people pay good money for such a thing.
I hope that you all have a good few days over the last of the Christmas break. I am very proud of myself for still having the tree up. It has a gaudy rainbow striped heart hanging right at the front of it. I tried to move it out of view really early on but the littlest boy moved it back again and I have managed to live with it. Personal growth right there.
Most of the festive food has been eaten, except for a large amount of nut roast and a few bits of fancy cheese. It just remains for me to wish you a very happy New Year. CJ xx
