So busy

There doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day at the moment. The children's schedules are busy, the puppy is a full time job and I've got a driving theory test to try to revise for. On top of all the normal household chores that a family of 6 generates. And that's not even considering Christmas shopping... Ooof!

Knitting and blogging has rather fallen by the wayside at the moment. Even a few rounds on a sleeve seems tricky, making sure I decrease in the right places and don't get tangled up magic-looping. My son keeps asking when his sweater will be finished, I'm hoping by Christmas, even if that means spending the first few days of the Christmas holidays sat on the sofa knitting furiously lol


I've finished the first sock and I'm now making progress on the second. Not much progress it must be said, a row here and there, but it all adds up eventually I guess


Things will get easier. Pippin has his final vaccination tomorrow and then 10 days after that I'll be able to take him for short walks which should tire him out a bit better. At least long enough for me to start making progress on things rather than barely keeping up. We've been trying to do a lot of socialisation with him while he's still young. This means we take turns carrying him around in a sling so he can visit new places and meet new people. Yesterday we took him round a garden centre to look at the Christmas decorations and then we went to a pet shop where he encountered a rather noisy parrot.


Right, I'd better get back to revising for my driving theory test, I need to practice doing the "hazard perception" part of the test. I'm hoping it's easier than it sounds lol. Have a good week everyone :-)


  1. So glad to hear from you. Take a deep breath and do one thing at a time. You are getting closer to the puppy becoming a dog and that, as you know, is much easier. He is darn adorable! I hope the week slows down a bit for you.

  2. It's such a busy time of year. Hang in there, I'm sure you're doing great with everything you have to manage.

  3. Good luck girl! A puppy is like having another baby. He is a sweetie. I like how your son is impatient for his jumper. That is a real knitter's son.

  4. Love the sock yarn, so pretty! And the puppy is so sweet!

  5. Puppies certainly keep you busy don't they! I hope that all goes well with your driving test! xx

  6. it will get easier so enjoy that puppy hood and the kids!! lovely knitting :)
