At the moment, I am…
sorting… all those awkward things we have unpacked. Things which have been really simple are those that just go back into the places they were before- awkward things have been things from our study-spare room-storage space. Shelves going down, new ones going up and a smaller room just mean things are a big higgledy piggeldy in places.
smiling… at photos of Phoebe from her expeditions with Daddy yesterday, and Simeon rolling all over the place, trying to eat anything he shouldn’t (paper, cords, all moved!)
trying… to get Simeon to sleep for longer stretches at nights, resulting in exhaustion and not much blogging to speak of! Out of a do-what-works attitude, I had been pulling him into bed when he woke in the night to feed, especially in the chaos of doing a degree, moving and whatnot. The last two weeks I have been getting up when he wakes, and either getting him back off to sleep or feeding him in their room before putting him down. This started with him waking four or five times between his bedtime and morning, and *dont want to speak too soon* but this has been improving.
loving… the beautiful September weather while it has lasted, with warm breezes and fresh air that I want to inhale deep. The leaves haven’t yet turned here and so the sweet farewell of summer is fading away.
wondering… how my little girl is moving up into 3-4 year old clothes, and how fast baby-dom passes. I know it is Josh’s tall-ness which makes them grow out of clothes that much faster, but still- they’re only two and a half and six months!
planning… a few changes in these parts, once I actually have the chance to get it all just right! The indecisive, perfectionist in me knows that it could be a little bit longer until anything actually gets changed on the blog. I’m really excited to change things a bit, and want to do it all right now, but I know it will take a little time. I also have a number of posts waiting in the wings, but again, it is a case of when I get a chance.
writing… some goals down for October. Now that things are a bit more settled in the new place, and we’re kind of getting into a weekly routine, I thought it was time to challenge myself a bit. Time seems to run away, especially with little ones to chase after, and I want to be intentional about how I spend my time so I avoid flipping through things on the internet and not doing what I really wanted.
painting… the walls (or half walls, under the dado rail) in our lounge, duck egg, whilst Simeon napped and Phoebe went on a daytrip to London with Josh to the Natural History Museum. I was going to have a nap instead, but couldn’t fall asleep! Isn’t that always the way though!
looking… forward to autumn, but dreading the length of time that the cold sticks around for (like, until next April..)
loving… a new approach to my wardrobe thanks to Unfancy – bring on Autumn clothes!
