Another gloriously sunny day here. In fact it was so hot this afternoon, I had to move into the shade. Not that I'm complaining, this summerlike weather is helping to keep my mood level.
I am rather tired, not sleeping overly well, keep waiting up and having odd dreams; last night the one that I remember was about me trying to get on a plane to go and visit relatives in Canada, but access to the plane was through long narrow winding tunnels that were rather scummy... I couldn't get through so had to go back. I don't need to be Freud to understand that one.
So today ended up being a home day. I had made plans to go to the park again in the afternoon, but I was headachy and tired and just not up for it, so I cancelled. The day did improve though, the headache eventually dissipated with help, and I decided to occupy myself by making a start on the shawl a friend asked me to make her for her birthday - which I realised isn't that far away!
I still decided to buy the book and checked it out, as there are other patterns I'm interested in... and if I can indeed follow the diagrams ok without being able to refer to written instructions, (as they are in Japanese), then there are other books I've been looking at, that I'd love too.
I've found the crochet rather grounding and have coped with the children much better today; plus I've had the radio on too - bit of sellotape holding the ariel in place, meant I was able to listen to Radio 3. Rye has of course pull it off again, trying to be helpful (sigh), but that's kids for ya, I guess. Minded child was very tired today too and had a long, 2.5hr nap, which was rather lovely.
A pretty ok day, overall.
