Say goodbye to September

Almost another month gone. I am always saying how quickly time is passing by but it really does feel it. Strange because I always seemed to be waiting for my days off work and each shift at work seemed to be never ending. However, now each shift disappears too quickly - we all think so, it's like we've just started and suddenly it's time to go home. I don't know if it's because the kids routines are more time constrained, so we always have to be attending to some need of theirs - whilst trying to fun stuff in between! - or who know's what?? (I work with children with disabilities)

I get alternate weekends off and it used to be ages between them but it doesn't feel it anymore. Probably does to Darren, as these are the only days we have together (evenings do go too quickly and I do work some evenings too) and if I'm working he's home without me (and car!!)

I never seem to have the time to do anything, although partly cos I can't be bothered to do some things. I'm the sort of person who can cope without a task being started but once started it has to be done to perfection!!

Darren has finished working on the Zombie web series, so now our weekends and evenings can be just for us. Although I have said that I want to crack on with some decorating. This weekend is my 1st weekend off with Darren not working on the series, so it'll be just having fun...but my next weekend off will need to involve house stuff.

As it has been unbelievably cold here lately  - in fact we even had the heating on this week. I just couldn't get warm on Tuesday evening so we gave in and put it on. It hasn't been on since and I hope we don't need to again for a bit. It is just so expensive and once the heating goes on it'll probably be on til March/April. ...SO...I have been cracking on with my granny stripe blanket again. Darren and I worked out on Tues how much more I needed to do but I can't remember if it was another 30 stripes or 30 rows (each stripe is 2 rows). Anyway, so far I've done 5 more stripes (10 rows). It's getting closer to being finished - I really hope it was 30 rows though!!! It is so snuggly under it, I am wrapped up with it as I continue making it! Well, better get back to the blanket....hopefully I can post some finished pics of it soon!


  1. I agree I do not know where the day's go and I currently don't work!!! And yes it has been cold but we don't have any heating as such right now. But the heaters we do have are on as I still have no Roof!!!

  2. Have had the heating on a few times already, just evenings to take off the chill, but like you said, it's the beginning of a slippery slope isn't it. It's supposed to become 'unseasonably warm' according to BBC Weather website, I did blink when I read that, maybe they put up the wrong week!
    Looking forward to seeing your blanket; I've just done a granny square cushion cover and am contemplating a blanket for the sofa as the kids are always snuggling under fleece blankets.


Thank you very much for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment...come again soon! :)
