So Much To Do......
I do love that great feeling of achievement I get when I see a project finished. It's something that I don't get from anything else. I like to sit down to a nice meal that I've cooked or a scrumptious cake but I never feel like jumping around and shouting out the window, "look what I've made". I can clean the house and do all my chores until the house gleams but I don't ever want to walk proudly into my knitting group wearing a nice Mr. Muscle shiny bathtub now do I?
Tomorrow I'm going to be brave and sit down with my dear little notepad and make my Christmas list (not for Santa...that one will come later on St. Nicholas' Day. Hopefully he'll listen this year.)
The most important jobs first. Sewing during the day because I can knit at night and when the kids are doing their homework. I'm heading to Germany at the end of this month with my mother to visit the big bro. We are going for a week so that is going to take more time off me. And then when we get back, advent will have started. And advent is such a big thing here in this house for us. The stairs have to be decorated and small sweet bags hung out for Santa's elves to fill for the kids if they have been good that day.
Ahhhh I think I'm going to go mad. But if I'm really honest with myself, I'm looking forward to Chrimbo this year for the first time in a long long time. I'm more relaxed in myself. More secure and I've finally accepted my condition. As somebody once told me "it is possible to find happiness in acceptance".
I often sign on to blogger land intending to write a post but I get so distracted by everybody elses beautiful pages that I spend all my time reading them and before I know it, it's already bed time.
So I'm hoping that with all the crafting I'll be doing over the next two months, I'll definitely be posting more news. And hopefully there'll be some fab pictures from Munich and Salzburg.
Thanks for listening to my mindless rambling,
PS Can anybody out there help me please? Whenever I have found new blogs that I would like to follow, I would click on the Google Follow This Blog button and that blog would automatically pop up on my reading list. But the last few times that I did that, I had to copy and paste the address into my reading list. Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong here?
