Saturday afternoon The Husband took the girls to a soft play so he could get some work done and they’d be happy. That left me with a couple hours to myself. I know that sounds a bit weird because I have had a ton of time to myself over the last six months. It makes me laugh that before October one of my aims to hit before I turn thirty was tohave a whole morning or afternoon to myself. Little did I know. But that vast majority of these past six months I’ve been in so much pain the painkillers have made me really drowsy. And it’s not much fun enfoying some time to yourself when you’re out of it.
But saturday afternoon I was feeling good (I have been having a couple good days since seeing a new osteopath). I wondered what I could do.
I had not one but two new magazines to peruse and enjoy.
I had a hem to sew on a skirt for Chloe and some bias binding to sew on another little surprise.
I had a million and one things things to organise. I’m a list person. A lot of lists needed to be made while it was quiet and I could concentrate.
Or I could just bake.
Actually, the sewing won out, but almost as soon as I started the machine started playing up and for the life of me I dont know what was wrong with it. I didn’t dare try and fix it so for now it’s out of action.
So with no sewing to be done, it had to be the baking. I’m not sure this is a wise choice because I’m always left with a mess to clear up and wanting a nice sit down afterwards. I did try something new though and I baked a Bakewell tart. Get Me! No photo yet, I’ll try to grab one before it’s all eaten up.
