The blog has been quiet this week. Everything has been fairly low-key around here lately actually. It started with Jaron getting sick on Sunday and then Lil quickly followed on Monday evening. After a shocking night with her up and crying for hours on Tuesday (very out of character for her to wake in the night time) I took her to the doctor on Wednesday to find that she has a throat and ear infection. Poor little thing. There has been icky pussy wax flowing from her ears for a few days (yeah, really gross) but she started on antibiotics yesterday and has really perked up today.
So, my big plan this week was to get started on a new pattern. The ideas are flowing and I know exactly what I need to do, but when the kids finally get to bed at night the inspiration stops and I have not managed to touch the sewing machine once this week. It will happen...as soon as this creative-block passes :)
This week has marked the 6 month anniversary living in our new house. When we first moved in we told ourselves that we would have the landscaping finished in 2 months...and it still isn't done. Hopefully in a few more weeks it will be mostly taken care of. We haven't really had a weekend for 6 months and are feeling it. It is all worth it at the end of the day though - our own home with everything as we like it.
We are getting set to put some more decorating touches on the inside of the house too...I've been doing a little internet surfing to get some inspiration and am in love with this kid's bedroom. I love my kids sharing a room. At the moment Tommy has his own, but when he gets bigger I know he will want to join in with the big kids. I've told Jaron that in the next house we build, I want a big bedroom for all three to share just like this set up. I don't know how long they will want to share for...hopefully until they are 10? Jaron will just have to do some clever architecture stuff to make the room usable once they are a bit older and decide they need their own space. At the moment, the kid's bedrooms are set up so that they only house their beds and books. All of the toys are in the studio so, to me, having a bedroom each is a total waste of space if all they are doing is sleeping there.
Anyway, that's enough rambling from me. I'm off to go and write some lists and maybe even cut into some fabric ;)
