Life has been quite draining of late, so I've been taking a bit of a break from the computer.
There has been hospital for my husband, now minus a gall bladder via keyhole surgery (amazing what they can achieve with just a few little holes and stitches here and there).
There has been a head cold and cough working its way though the household too.
There has been a young boy desperately seeking attention amongst all the health issues, unable to really understand why dad is at home but not playing games with him.
We have employed various tactics to deal with that, with varying degrees of success.
There have been tantrums.
There have been calm moments.
It has been oh. so. draining.
There have been bright moments in there- happy play, outings with friends, things in the mail, and the best Easter egg treasure hunt that I've ever been involved in (picture clues leading C around the house and garden).
But at the end of each day I've been spending time away from the internet, with my feet up, doing some very simple, soothing knitting.
Soft red alpaca yarn, simple garter stitch knitting.
It's very nearly finished now and I'm looking forward to casting on a new project- perhaps tomorrow night.
