Hi, hi, come on in.
The kettle's on, and I have freshly baked cookies. I do hope you're not allergic to peanuts? No? Good.
How has January been for you and yours? I think its gone by fairly quickly, don't you? January is usually a month I dislike because of the miserable weather and the sense of anti-climax after Christmas and the New Year. We've had plenty of miserable weather, but somehow I've managed to fill the month with lots of good things. It's all part of my plan for us to be more in 2014.
We have The Boy Child's first review of his Statement of Educational Needs this Friday morning, and I am already nervous about it. We are hoping to have his help increased to full-time hours and in order to make a good case, we have had to highlight all the things that are not going so well for him in school right now.
It makes very depressing reading.
On a more cheerful note, I've had a new burst of inspiration for my blog and have posted every single day so far this month. Do you find that blog inspiration comes in fits and starts? I know that a few of my readers are experiencing the same thing and, indeed, my friend Sian has actually created a theme of blog posts under the banner of Blog Cos You Want To.
My scrapping projects are also blossoming under a wave of new optimism. Daring to change it up in regard to Project Life has been liberating! Funny how you can become wary of changing things when it comes to photos, paper and glue, isn't it? I'm training myself to think, if I don't particularly like the end result, "okay, I won't do it that way again. The world is not going to end."
Do you have time to tell me about the crafty projects you are working on?
Hang on, I'll refresh the teapot and how about another cookie?
