Thinking ... thinking ....

It's VERY early on Thursday morning and I'm trying to think what my week has been like. I had Monday off, and went to see Love in the Time of Cholera, which was just ... eh. BUT I am re-reading the book, so it had one positive outcome.

Tuesday and Wednesday were very ordinary days. I worked, I mooched, I read, I baby-wrangled. They sort of .... melted into each other. Okay. That can't be good, can it? Not being able to separate days? No, no it can't.

Must. Try. Harder.

And the warm weather continues.
We're supposed to be heading into autumn, but nature obviously hasn't got that memo yet, given the blue skies and warm sunny days we've been having. Ah .... global warming. Or something.

However, like a good little ant (apart from the money stuff that I"m very bad at) I've been compulsively preparing for winter. Mostly by buying Patrick new clothes. He's growing like a weed that's been given a special growth hormone and most of his stuff just doesn't fit any more.
Sigh. Where'd my wee baby go?

He's a lot of fun at the moment, though, with the cheekiest grin, and soooooooooo active! He's just everywhere! And very chatty, although it's mostly still baby babble. He's still commando crawling, getting about on his arms and tummy, but once in a while, he sticks his bum in the air and waves it about for a second before collapsing back on to the floor. Oh, so cute!

I've been having a bit of a stitching break, since finishing the star signs, but that won't last long. I'll get bored. So I've got Patrick's dinosaur alphabet out to work on.

We ventured out yesterday, amongst all the other drivers going "oh no! the shops were closed yesterday and they'll be closed tomorrow! Must. Spend!!!!" Ah, Easter.

We were far more civilised than that. We went to the library, an out-of-the-way baby store, and to see my mother. SO much less stressful. No, really. And I'm working today anyway, so quiet is good.

More later.

How galling!

I had a gallstone attack yesterday. Bad enough to keep me home from work. I won't go into the gory details, but ... ugh. Ugh.

I finished the other star sign picture on ... Friday? I think. Then promptly forgot to give them to my mother when we went to see her on Sunday, even though I had remembered to put them in my bag. Oops. Anyway. Ta da ... sorry, the bull's a bit fuzzy. But you get the idea:

Back to normal :)

Jeremy went back to work this week, so we're back on our normal schedule, and I"m doing this very quickly before giving Patrick his breakfast.
He's started pusing up on his hands, so he's really getting the idea. Mind you, he can get a LONG way by just commando crawling, as well. So we're on our toes all the time. :)
I'm getting the second star sign _ the Taurus for my niece _ done very quickly, so hopefully it won't be long before I'm able to get back to doing my own stuff; that'd be nice!
That's all for now; here is my favourite photo of Patrick and me, taken a few days ago:

Ta da! A finish.

First finish for 2008. :)

This is Leo the Lion, from The World of Cross Stitching Issue 93.

It was sort of commissioned by my mother for my nephew who is turning 13 this year. I stitch, she frames and gives it to him for his birthday. :)
I still have a Taurus one to finish for my niece who is also turning 13 this year.
