How Quickly Time Passes.

I can’t believe it’s a week since I blogged. I just don’t know where the time as gone.

We had a strange week this week as I was off work on Wednesday, then back in on Thursday. Wednesday I took Egg for his MMR jab. He was a real trooper and only cried a little when he had his jabs done (but then he was stabbed in each leg by a scary lady with a big needle, so fair play to him). He was pretty much fully recovered by the time it came to sticker choosing. He went with the star sticker. Personally, I’d have gone for the brave lion, but each to their own.

Whilst we were at the doctors for baby clinic anyway I took Gracie to get her eczema checked out. She came away with enough lotions, potions and ointments to sink a small tug boat, not to mention some “nasty medicine” aka luminous pink “strawberry” flavoured (and I use the term loosely, because it’s not like any strawberry I’ve ever tasted) flucloxycillin. After a couple of days of that and some icky sticky arms for lots of cream (when she feels the need to walk about with her arms stuck straight out and not bend them for 4 hours) her itchy patches are much improve. Thank goodness.

Yesterday we had a case of the “poorly sicks” for Gracie (she’s not having a good run of it really), beginning with some puking in the morning, followed by some more puking a little later, and then some puking in the car later on. It wasn’t quite as bad, nor quite as entertaining as this though, we were well armed this time – we even took a puke bowl with us. We’d gone out to go and see Daddy’s new work (that would be the new concrete plant he’s been asked to manage – Congrats on the promotion (more pennies – hurrah!)). Surprisingly, not as dull as it sounds, especially as the plant is all shiny and new so we actually got to see all the inside without getting full of concrete crud. We even got to see Daddy’s new orifice office – which is in desperate need of some Gracie artwork to liven the place up a bit.

I haven’t done much crafty stuff this week really. I’ve finished the Easter raffle bunny so I will post a pic of him later (I forgot to upload it before I left for work) and I’m in the middle of a layout for my UKS team scraplift challenge, but I can’t show you that, because it’s a secret. Shhhhhhh. Tonight I'll be helping Gracie with her Easter bonnet for the playschool Easter show on Wednesday so that should be fun, and not in the least bit stress inducing. Honest.

Mostly this week I’ve been working on trying to get my bunny pattern to do what I want it to do. There’s something about the mechanics of knitting that I struggle to get my head around. I mean, I know HOW to knit (purl, cast on, cast off, make once, decrease, increase etc) but something about how to make the flat knitting into the 3D shape eludes my brain for some reason. I think that’s a whole other post though.

Best go off and do some work I suppose. I have a very long To Do list and this isn’t accomplishing any of the things on it.

Hope Gracie's over the poorly sicks now and glad he ezcema's all better. Big squishes from Auntie Lou (but not so big that we squeeze any sick out!!) xx
