Back in business

It has been a very mellow start to the year so far, and I have found that writing in here was just not at the top of my list for the past wee while. Part of the reason is definitely that cute kid up there. No, no, I didn't pop one out over the festive season, that's a snap I found of Richard as a baby while I was cleaning up the den this week. He still has that slightly worried look on his face. He had his annual leave just after New Years, and as he usually works a night shift (9.30pm-5.30am) it was very exciting to have him home all the time. We drew, played music together, watched lots of movies, thought about going for walks but ended up staying in from the cold, hung out with friends and ate lots of cake and chocolate on his birthday.

Now, with a clean house and the laundry done I feel like I'm ready to get back into things. I haven't made any resolutions for the year, but I really, truly will try and get into some kind of routine this week. I have so many ideas of things I want to make and do, and I'm excited to share them with you!

This morning is off to a good start, too. Im lying on our bed (thanks to the new wireless, welcome to the technology age Becka!), looking out at the clear sky, listening to some Dusty (and Grayling snoring) and getting ready to knit.

Happy Monday, everybody!
