So here I am, slowly coming out of the post baby zombie fog. E is doing amazingly well, putting on weight like a boss and sleeping better than K does. Of course the combined effect of the toddler not sleeping so well and the baby waking at normal for a two month old intervals means that C and I are completely shattered.
Craftree now has over 600 members and is growing daily. There’s over 700 patterns catalogued too.
On the craft front, yesterday I managed to do two pattern rows – not quite two repeats of my Wee Leisl which I’m working on for K. I also managed to do about a row’s worth of my old turtle latch hook. Would like to see it finished, although I realise now that the reason I slowed down was that I’ve no idea how to actually bind it off once I’ve done. I’ve generally made cushions or simply not completed the end product before. Time for a google me thinks!
The mouse wars are currently at a stalemate. They’re nolonger coming into the kitchen, although I do hear them behind the kick plates. That’s a win for us, however I’m hearing a LOT more noise behind the walls at the moment. Apparently we’re the only ones who have had them in the flat – I find that very hard to believe. I honestly think most people have no idea that they have them. You wouldn’t know here if you weren’t paranoid as I am. A few others have reported the scratching in the walls so I’m led to believe that the resident’s association are looking to get a communal pest controller for the whole block. Could not happen fast enough!
Picture is of Elisa wearing the cute puppy onesie from Grandma. I love the way she stretches when you place her on the bed.
