Feeling Blah .

My blogging mojo seems to have taken a dive somewhere along the line.

 The last couple of weeks have been so hectic with one thing and another, I am very tired . Lots of family birthdays this month have kept us busy evenings and weekends , with not much time to relax. The kids are taking a while to get back into the swing of school , and are not enjoying homework much at the moment , lol.
 My boy has done very well though , he has been chosen to be a school councillor , received a head teachers award and is now a reading buddy , mentoring the class below him . He turns seven next month , so not too shabby for a six year old.
 My daughter got two prizes from her teacher within a week of going back to school . Very proud of both of them  .

Craft wise , I have been stitching , but nothing to show . One finish is for my give away ,so there will be a reveal later , and two others are secret stitches to also be shown at a later date .

 My daughter is studying the Aztecs this year and wanted some multi coloured wool to do some weaving . I found some out and remembered that I bought it to make a scarf for myself , so got on with it last week.
 Close up to show the lacy pattern .
 After my baking marathon ,the kids wanted to make something too. My daughter had seem something in a comic to make flip flops using rich tea fingers. You are supposed to sandwich two together using icing , but I bought finger creams thinking it would be easier , not realising that they were squared off at the ends. We had a go anyway .
   My daughters' messy plate
 My sons' slightly neater one.
 And some pictures of the daft cats.
   Finley .
 And Fraser .

Hopefully things will get back to normal soon. I am really hoping to get some serious stitching time in this week , but the best laid plans and all that .

Thanks for dropping by ,

Losing your mojo is always difficult. I just wish someone would come up with something that would do away with tiredness! So much to do yet napping always wins out. Loved the pictures of the cats : )

I love the colors of the scarf. The pictures of the cats are adorable.

Bekca said...

I can totally understand about dips and dives about your mojo. I'm sure it will return soon enough with a bang :)
I've just emailed my thanks about my lovely birthday parcel. It was so kind of you, thank you so much!
Best wishes.

Catherine said...

I think we have all been through the mojo problems! Cute flip~flops!

Carol said...

I actually totally gave up stitching for about 10 years when my kids were young!! It is really hard to settle and have time to stitch with all of their activities... Your scarf is so pretty and cheerful!

I do hope things calm down a bit for you very soon :)

Brigitte said...

You've been really busy lately. I hope that some quieter times are ahead - then your mojo will certainly come back.
