Well, hello there! How have you been? It's been aggggeeessss. All my fault of course, unless you are on instagram (and even that is not a guarantee) I have no idea what has been happening in the last month or so, except within my household. And to be honest, this has been keeping me busy. We have been sick, we have been sad, we have had tantrums (me mostly), we have had tears (the toddler mostly), and we have been happy.
Little Baby MiH turned 6 months last month, and I just really had to stop and think of what I wanted for my family and out of my family life. If I am honest, going from 1 child to 2 children has been quite a challenge for me (so a third one is definitely NOT on the card). There are different reasons for that, but the main one was that I was trying to go against having this new family size rather than embracing the excitement that is to have two boys who are active and enthusiastic about everything. It sounds obvious but it was not for me. And it is not until we went to Paris a couple of weeks ago that I realised how exciting seeing adventures through children eyes could be.
Don't get me wrong, it is still hard work, but rewarding hard work. We have more tired babies and less tears - a sure sign they enjoyed themselves at ours. Some people get the two children business straight away, but I didn't. Although in the GRAND scheme of things 6 months is not bad - it was just a long 6 months.
I feel now that I can fit in more craft time. I stopped last month, it was easier that way to go through the day. I started sewing for the first time in a long time today - and it is as therapeutic as I remembered crafting to be. The next step will obviously be to join the crafting community again. Soon, very soon. Watch this space!
