However, I have noticed that even when we dont have plans, I dont seem to get any of my stuff done, is this a Mum thing? Everyone else in resting & doing their own thing, & I still cooking, cleaning etc. So, after having a lightbulb moment regarding this very subject today, I have decided to make a list of all the little crafty/baking things I have been wanting to get done & post it here as a motivational tool.
So, ta-dah!! Here is 'The List':
-Sew a vintage inspired table runner for my lovely friend Sarah.
-Teach Miss M to cross stitch.
-Finish the Xmas cross stitch house decorations from Cross Stitcher magazine.
-Start a scarf for Me!!
-Unravel the ball of wall that Miss L-R got hold of (this may take a while!!)
Hmmm, I'm not sure of my chances in getting the whole list done, but I'm going to do my best. I will still have cooking, cleaning & laundry to do, but I really want to concentrate on my stuff for once, instead of everyone elses. Im sure that will sound selfish to some,& maybe it is. But a Happy Mummy/Wife is so much better than a stressed, grumpy Mummy/Wife, LOL.
Edit: I was planning on writing this post just before collecting the girls from school, but instead managed to tick something off the list already!! Woo hoo!! Its worked out brilliantly as right now I'm stuck on the sofa, with a sleeping 2 yr old on my lap. It's actually quite akward to write a blog one handed!
Update:8:50am,Sunday. Well, we spent most of yesterday at the park, so have only managed to cross one more thing off my list! The Wobbly Granny has 2 more completed rounds, plus a 1/4 of the next round done.......Yay! Let's see how much more I can get done today (although the Husband is not feeling well & the kids are having one of those 'I Need Mummy For Everything' days!!)
