Blogtober 20th: Bliss

Today is a Tuesday. Today I realised I have had the date wrong for the last couple of days – sorry. And worse, I just realised my huge essay isn’t due in until tomorrow – you know, the one I half killed myself to get in ‘on time’.  Maybe I should, in future, change over the calendar page at the end of the month.  Not a bad idea, really.

But I digress.  Today is Tuesday. You might recall, I love Tuesdays. And, with the weight of my Research Essay off my shoulders (unnecessarily it would seem…) I decided to take the day off studying. The only study related thing I did was parcel up all my library books and send them back. Ahhh.

Instead I caught up on all the things I’ve been putting off the last few weeks. I cleaned. I folded washing (well, that’s never-ending around here), I washed two hire kits of nappies, and sorted a third one.  I parceled up a couple of gifts and posted them off.  I baked – yes, my family had scoffed every last muffin from the last baking session. I made a huge crumble for knitting night ladies to share with me.  I sewed. I dyed the yarn for my yarn swap (sorry, you’ll have to wait until next week to see it, we are swapping on Wednesday night). I even got all the other bits of my swap organised.  I planned a crafty activity to do with the kids tomorrow and began to get it ready. And I even knitted just a little bit.

My sewing:  I completed (aside from ribbon and toggle) another five WIP bags, for no real reason except I felt like it. I have a few more cut out too. I might sell a few, and keep the rest for my gift box.

I will have to get back to study tomorrow, but it was total bliss to take a day off, to catch up with the world for a while, to listen to music and find my feet just a little bit.

And tonight at knitting night I got given a lovely gift that I won on Hannah’s blog.  My girls are going to love “Marina the Mermaid”, the cute hair ties, and yes, I suspect they will ask for the chocolate fish for breakfast.  Awesome, thanks Hannah. What a lovely end to a great day.

    Such pretty fabrics! I need to make a few of my own (I actually have more than one started project, for once!). I’m thinking of putting a clear pocket on the front which you can put a note about what’s inside.

    Glad you had a catch up day 🙂

    Ditto on the blue paisley bag, it’s lovely! Aren’t WIP bags just great! I’ve got a little bag that I’m using as a WIP bag and it’s even got a strap to hold it around my wrist, so I can walk around and take my knitting with me without having to carry the bag/wool 🙂
