School is officially in full swing and we’ve been finding our new rhythm with Phoebe there everyday. It’s been an interesting adjustment but she loves going and has a great time even if the tiredness definitely affects her once she gets home! We had a lovely day in Oxford on Friday as an inset day so that was great to have a day together, and even though Josh worked the weekend we got to spend time with family and church family alike.
Amelia is busy crawling about and pulling herself up on anything and everything! It’s so fun to see her personality and abilities develop as she gets older. I can hardly believe that she is almost one!
I’ve got just a few letters to do on my alphabet series so that’s really exciting, and I’m hoping to have them up for preorders before too long. They will be going out to new homes in November, so plenty of time to get ahead for Christmas if you have someone in mind. I’ll have a special treat for those getting letters to their inboxes too! (If you want to be in on that you can sign up here).
I’m so grateful for the blue skies and sunshine today despite the cold- I know that the darker winter months might be tricky so I’m grateful to have little pockets of creativity and projects to work on when the little ones sleep and the house is still. I went to Yarndale the other weekend and had such a lovely time- so there’s new yarn calling my name!
My latest read was this beautiful one from Shelly Miller, Rhythms of Rest. Shelly’s writing is so beautiful and evocative (I’ve been lucky enough to read it every week in her Sabbath Society letters) and her book is full of hope and freedom in what Sabbath and true rest can look like in our modern world. You can grab a copy on Amazon, (another great Christmas idea if you’re that organised person!)
Wishing you a lovely October as the air grows crisp, the leaves are speckled with dew drops and the conkers roll underfoot.
