Bursting the bubble.


Yes we are back from the beach, sigh, and reality certainly slapped me in the face.  I decided to head back earlier than Mr and Miss Whizzme who made one last beach visit.  My plan was to have a few hours to myself to unpack and do a little more sewing. Ha! Reality had other plans for me. First discovery on driving in were the sheets on the line, hung out before we left which Mr Whizzme had forgotten to bring in, slap.  That should have been my indication that more reality was waiting, potatoes nearly growing out of the pantry, slap, food in the fridge providing bacterial samples, slap, Miss Whizzme's onion plant sitting in rank water making the house smell, slap, no washing done, slap, the bed unmade, slap.  On the upside after so much time away, I was awash with remembering just how much I love our little house!  And I did manage to get a bit of sewing done this afternoon.  Just to add to my grief though the camera has decided not to allow me to upload any of our holiday photos?!  Instead I have given you a shot of the chevron scarf finally finished. Before Christmas even.  Guess you will just have to wait for the holiday pics.  One more day and school starts.  I plan to practice getting up early tomorrow - new year's resolution: to at least make it to school on time (well most days anyway).


Edited to add: please take the slapping here as tongue in cheek!  really being home is ok!

I love the feeling of returning home and remembering why you love your own place. Even if it is tinged with a touch of 'reality'.

It is back to reality, isn't it?? But I am glad you found some time to sew and I think it does take a little time to settle back in. Good luck with the getting up. I suggest you get a kitten or a puppy- they work really well as waker-upperers!!!

Down to earth with a bump!! It's always a good and bad thing coming home after the holidays!

Hope that you make it out of bed in time for school!!

We've been doing the trial run thing as well. Six weeks of sleeping in has made me lazy and I need a few days to get back into the swing of early starts.
Your chevron scarf is just gorgeous - I love the colours.
Welcome home!

Oh at least it was only little things to fix up, nothing broken. I love the scarf, very pretty.

A Chevron pattern scarf is next on my list for new projects. Is it easy to do? Do you have a pattern for the stitch?

It takes a while to get back into the swing of it doesn't it? Glad you had a lovely summer!
