My weeks normally run like a well-oiled machine. I am obsessive about my time keeping, meticulous about my planning and mostly I manage to get photos taken in daylight, blog posts scheduled to meet deadlines and college work completed without it seeping into family time, but this week has been different.
Despite generally robust health, Theo came down with a winter bug last Thursday which came gift-wrapped with a lot of subsidiary infections. We’ve spent a lot of time sitting on the sofa and there’s been a lot of broken nights. Sometimes I’ve uncurled the extension lead and plugged the sewing machine in and got no further than a few stitches before he’s woken crying.
It’s behind us now and I am chasing coursework deadlines first so I can manage some sewing time later. I need the time at my machine, like some people need a glass of wine in the evenings and I have missed it this week, but things will be back to normal soon…
Hopefully some of you will have had a more productive week than me?
