Watching…

I finished Star Trek: The Next Generation last week. This does mean once again I’ve watched far too much TV! I guess it didn’t help with the boys being away – saves me going bananas talking to myself I guess!

Reading…

I’ve carried on with the Kathy Reichs book but have also been pretty much going straight to bed or journalling once I’m in bed rather than reading in bed. I did read a couple of times at lunchtime but Jaxon would often want me to talk to him rather than read. I decided to return that particular one back to the library for now. Normally I get on with reading books by Kathy Reichs but this time I was struggling. which is a bit strange to me.

Listening…

We had McFly on for a couple of car trips – it’s cheesy but their songs are generally quite upbeat and cheery to sing along to in the car.

Making…

This week while the Boys weren’t around to interrupt. I tried to learn how to make the Ripple Blanket by Attic24 but when I got onto the return row, I couldn’t get the increases and decreases to line up. I ended up undoing the trebles of Row 2 and going back to the chain row to try and make a granny stripe blanket instead. The idea is that I can use up some of the odd balls of wool that I have and work through some of my stash.

Feeling…

I’m excited as the boys return in the next couple of days. Chris has a day off in the middle before going back to work. Hopefully this means we can have a good catch up. It also means that he will have the day off when it’s Jaxon’s first “official” day at Preschool. I’m not sure how Jaxon will feel about Daddy dropping him off but I’m hoping that he will get involved and focus like he does when I drop him off by myself.

Planning…

I’m trying to make sure that the house is in some kind of order before the boys get back. I’m sure it’s easier said that done with Jaxon running around but I’m giving it a good go. I had spend some of the first week working on getting Our Sidekick’s room straightened. I changed his bedding and vacuumed the floor. The idea being that when he gets home he has a tidier/cleaner room than when he left. While on their travels, I’ve tried to get all the washing done. Hopefully then I will just have the boys stuff to contend with when they arrive home. Who knows if it’ll be that simple but I’ll sure give it a good go!

Loving…

The weather – it’s actually not been too hot or too cold for the last couple of days. It’s been quite comfortable to sit in a vest top and shorts during the day. Although sometimes in the evenings I’ve needed to grab a cardigan. There’s rumours that it’s going to get warm again this week!
