It’s been hot here peeps. Real hot. Yesterday was 42°C, the day before was similar, not the best weather to be hooking the border on Baby O’s ripple blanket. For the time being it has been tossed aside. Clearly if it is too hot for me to hook it then it is too hot for him to sleep under it.
Crafty motivation is low in such heat. I’d rather be swimming or lazing about next to the fan.
I have been making some slow progress hooking my big boys belated birthday present, but still away off from finishing.
Go on. Take another guess?
Today though is beautiful. Much cooler. Low thirties with a fresh breeze. It is beautiful. We’ve been to the beach and baby O had his first swim in the ocean. He wasn’t overwhelmed – puzzled and intrigued perhaps. He seemed to neither like it or loathe it. He looked so adorable in his bathers. No photos though. I took the trashy camera with us but it stopped working just as we made it to the beach. I was a little disappointed because the boy did look so adorable and squishy in his bathers and cap. Too cute. Perhaps I over rely on my camera. Sometimes I think I outsource my grey matter to the SD card… today though I’ll have to use the old fashioned brain-card to remember the gorgeousness of it all.
I’m off outside now. Got some school uniforms to hem for a friend who is trying to get another terms wear out of last year’s kit. Also going to hem the pink doily pants and take in the waist band. Not the most glamorous crafty pursuits but will be lovely lounging next to the pool in the fresh breeze.
Do you hem by hand or use the machine? I’ve been doing these school uniforms by hand with tiny little stitches. I’ve always just hemmed my own way. I wonder if there is a “right” or proper way to hem. I sometimes use the machine for shorts or pants. And come to think about it I’ve used the machine for skirts too. I’m not sure what reasoning I employ in my decision to hem by hand or machine… maybe it all just depends on the weather!

Oooo… I almost forgot to let you know that E was better(ish) at his second go at having his blood taken. Good enough for them to get enough out of him anyway. At the end of the ordeal I noted an anti-climatic glimmer in his eye so I think next time will be even better. The phlebotomist said he was so brave he could have two stickers. That made his day for sure. We’ve got the EpiPens now and I’ve watched loads of videos online about how to use them. Have another doctors appointment tomorrow for her to go through it all with me. I’m feeling heaps better about it all now. Less freaked for sure. Just had to get some more know how about it all. Thanks so much for all your supportive comments.
