Hello my blog friends
In my part of the world, 2 week of school holidays starts at the end of today. Huzzah! We are not going away at all. We’ll be staying around the local area – a staycation.
I often run into other mothers during the holidays and I hear so much moaning! You know the kind of thing – “I hate having the kids underfoot”, “I can’t wait til school goes back”, “the kids are driving me mad”. I have never got that. I love having my family about. We do things together, make things, bake things, spend time on our own, go places and generally have fun. I hate it when they end.
I love it when they start. This week has been full of anticipation. I am a list maker. Love a good list. I love the satisfaction of crossing things off.
My lists are still a work in progress, but my basic plan for these holidays is fairly simple. Every day we will clean some part of the house, organise a drawer or cupboard, cook something and make something. 4 Lists – so much to cross off hehe.
This is what I am planning on making a start on. Its a pretty ambitious project for me as a beginner crocheter, but I just love it. I have made a sampler square using basketweave stitch and once I got the hang of it, I loved it. If you know me at all, you will have already worked out I will be doing it in another colour though. :)
How do you feel about school holidays? Do you make grand plans?
