Knitter and New Mum

A keen knitter and stay at home mum of Keira my little angel. I spend my days looking after her, shopping for her, cleaning up after her and in between all of that knitting and cooking and looking after my lovely husband Justin.

Happy Birthday to me.....31 candles

Well it was yesterday but I forgot to blog!!!!!! I also can't load photos on to my computer till I reload the software so you'll have to make do with a picture of the cardigan I'm knitting for one of keira's friends 1st birthday! it is soooo cute

We had a lovely day with a long breakie down at manly right down on the water, some shopping and some sewing and knitting! i finished 2 nappy bags and a beanie and hubby looked after keira all day! the night before had been a gorgeous wedding (photos I promise) so we were pooped!!!

I've been enjoying getting things done now that keira naps for at least 2 hours in the afternoon....mind you she is now eating a cruskit at 3pm and won't sleep right now so I've been speaking to soon!

We're trying for baby no. 2 and ran into our lovely OB down at breakie yesterday so hoping thats a sign from the universe that baby is coming soon into our lives!!! I just can't wait to see keira with a little brother or sister as she just loves other kids so much! I can wait for the extra nappies and lack of sleep and weight gain of course!

Oh and can you believe that keira is 9 months old today....where has the time gone....I'm only now getting back into my pre-pregnancy clothes and my old jeans are still a couple of kilo's away!

happy knitting

Bad day....

I was having so many lovely happy days with keira and today was a bad day, tears and no sleep (keira not me) ! I don't know what was wrong but she was all over the place! I think today put me back in the real world and remember that she is just a little person and can't always be on the go with her mummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

in my knitting world, my short sleeved bolero is coming along nicely and just finishing the left front then I'm ready to do finish it off with a ribbed neckline! wahoo! its been a bit of a quick knit but I've been too busy to finish! Now I'm ready to tackle the long sleeved version next week in a lovely shade of blue!

in my plastic world, I'm now a manager and really enjoying looking after and helping others get started but not the extra expectations of attending all these different meetings! I was expected to go a meeting tonight but had to say no keira comes first and if she's not sleeping in her own cot she won't be sleeping there! I've asked for day time meetings once a month but for the few workers it needs to be at guess what....none of the mummies could go!!! hmmmmmm thats my vent for the night! I was made to feel bad for putting keira first...whatever happens family is first!
