24: Why in God's name can't my son sleep late on the weekends? Every weekday we have to wake him up at 7am, but on weekends? He's awake at 6 and will not be persuaded to go back to sleep. This is us trying to have a power-snooze; he was having none of it.
25: This week has completely confused me; I've swapped a work day with a colleague and as a result wasn't in school today. I was able to pick The Boy up and take him to a park after-school.
26: The sunrise was absolutely intoxicating this morning, the sky was awash with purples, golds, pinks and yellows, making it a perfect match for a yarn which I've had for a while and didn't know what to do with. Here's today's row of my Sky Blanket 2016!
27: A colleague has commissioned me to crochet two rainbow ripple blankets for her two year old twins; one is a boy so she wanted to ditch the pink and purple and add more greens and blues. I am enjoying working on the transitions between the colours.
28: Another non-work day and we seemed to have a few minutes spare in the morning to do a puzzle. I love the way he kicks up his heels behind him when lying down.
29: Another ripple blanket, this one is off to a little girl in New Zealand!
30: We have had a raucous day today with The Boy and his cousins, involving a trip to Red Hot World Buffet and then lots of game playing. We've got a new game (Bugs in the Kitchen) and the three of them were having a wonderful time playing with the constantly moving Hexbug.
