At the start of each month I’m going to share a little peek at things that are happening around these parts- besides the stories and everyday which you might have already seen!
Lately I’ve been..
reading The Secret Garden and absolutely loving it. You know when you meet up with an old friend, and it’s just familiar and beautiful, and time flies?! Perhaps a bit strange for a book, but reading has always been like that for me when the writing and storytelling is this magical.
planning new collections and makes which I’m going to be doing over the next month or so. I’m still trying (and having difficultly) avoiding doing anything with the shop, but being patient and having this maternity break to just enjoy the making process, when I can and want to.
watching two tv programmes at the moment- guilty pleasure is Glee, season 4, and Call the Midwife is back on! And copious amounts of Cbeebies last week whilst Phoebe had a raging temperature.
remembering how little Amelia was when she was first born, and being amazed at how much she is growing. It feels like we are settling into a good rhythm with having three little ones and it’s all just pretty fun!
trying a better household schedule- I was getting pretty good at doing certain homekeeping tasks on certain days and it’s nice to get back to a kind of routine which makes everything easier to maintain. I’m also trying to schedule blocks of time for things like writing, making, etc.
pinning gorgeous classic book covers, mostly these lovely children’s classics. Starting to sort out the study again means rediscovering all my old friends.
feeling surprisingly energetic. It’s surprising how different kinds of tiredness affect you. Pregnancy definitely hit me harder than newborn life in a lot of ways.
celebrating (or planning to celebrate) our February birthdays soon! Phoebe is turning four, which seems incredible.
What have you been up to lately?
