I am really, really mourning the loss of my crochet time. On my daily to-do list, it sits there, staring at me hopefully as I scan past it for the thousand other things I’ve got to do. I’ve been filling my nights with work so I can fill my days with babies, but I’ve got to get a better balance.
Now that Pepper is older and is happy to munch on a rusk or cover herself in banana for afternoon tea, I sit next to her in my rocking chair and crochet a little while we both watch Abby playing with her toys or reading her books. I probably should be folding the washing or any number of other things, but I’m getting better at putting that sort of thing out of my mind! I think it’s so, so important to do things you love in the pockets of time you can find, or you go batshit crazy. The washing can wait, man.
Don’t they say fill your cup before you can fill others? I like a full cup at all times, but these days I’ll take it where I can get it!
I feel weird sitting down to crochet without a little something, and I’m still hooked (*crochet pun, groan!*) on the vanilla Moccona. I’ve been having one every morning while I get some work done before both kids get up, and then another in the afternoons while we all have some quiet time. A friend of mine used to play classical music and get her tribe to sit down and colour in for a little while to recharge before feral hour. While mine are still too little to colour for long (or at all!) I’ve introduced the quiet time ritual and will totally get our colour on when they’re older.
You gotta have a cute cup. You gotta make it special.
