A Respite

Good Evening All!  Well, my carefully laid plans have been lain to waste already.  From having set days for blogging and studying I am already (a couple of weeks in) giving up!  Study time requires more (way more!) than my allocated days.  So it is a case of: when there is time, use it.  Or at least, when there is time and no baby around, use it!  Part of the issue is that if I study too late, I don't sleep...and usually I rely heavily on watching TV after study (for at least an hour) to help me wind down.  Not much on that I care to watch.  Plus I've been staying up too late.  So I'm thinking I really NEED to get up earlier.  Which I have (of course) been saying for weeks.  Right.  Setting my alarm for 5:45am NOW.  Done.  Now I just need to get into bed at a reasonable hour tonight so I am actually alert enough in the morning to do some study!

I thought it might be nice to have a change of scenery, as we have been practially breathing Live the Line around here lately!  Too much of a good thing can be detrimental to one's health, after all.  And to be honest, I don't want to scare you all off!  Grin.

So here are a few snapshots of the rest of my life lately:

Exploring the outdoors.  We just love it!  And I absolutely love this photo!

A new room layout - very cheap cupboard to store all things Munchy-related.  Incidentally I have a new rule: only longterm, decent quality furniture purchases from now on (because I'm a bit disappointed in having made this one, but hey, we did need something!)

Munchkin's new winter cardigans, loving knitted by his two grandmothers!

Beautiful.  And we have a garden full of them - all shades, shapes and colours!

I hope that you are having an enjoyable week!

I'm so going to reply to some of your e-mails / photos soon... as you know, sick babies mean loads of work and mine is grizzly and clingy, and just not happy. Off to the Dr's today to get her checked over before the weekend :-(.
