Today has been a bit better than yesterday. I cleared my desk! I haven’t sorted out the paperwork again yet but I now have space on the desk to write, or sew or do other crafty things. Basically I ditched a lot of rubbish from that desk and the living room looks clearer and less, erm… chaotic? than it did before.
I think I’m going to enjoy having that space free to create things and bring ideas to fruition. I have also made some headway on the first of mums socks. I’m most of the way down the leg of it now. They won’t be too high, mum has some problems with her ankles so I think making them a wide rib and not too high should make them much more comfortable for her. I really hopes she likes what I’m doing with them.
I’ve had my gran on my mind today. It would have been my dads mum’s birthday today. I miss her a lot. I get the feeling she would like who I’ve grown into. In so many ways I think she was the linchpin of the family. Nothing was the same after she died because she wasn’t here to knock people’s heads together when they needed it anymore! She was special.
I spent my evening rewatching season 1 of True Blood. I got 5 episodes in. It was relaxing working on the sock an watching a show I know and love.
Between washing, clearing the desk, a bit of pampering this morning, going to the knitting group where I was told I’d been missed the last couple of weeks and seeing some progress on the sock, I think I can call today a win.
