That slightly depressing, last cold month of winter is upon us and I've been finding it difficult to manage and organise my workload, correspondence, community commitments and housework... not to mention being a patient and *present* mama, partner and friend... this is my way of saying I'm sorry if I owe you an email or phone call and it seems as though it's been a while! I promise i am getting on to it... perhaps this weekend will bring some calm time i can use to catch up.
I can sense the children are growing tired of being cooped inside so today, even though it was raining a little in the morning, we had a long brisk walk outside and then an 'indoor school and picnic' (Arlo's idea) which was entertaining for me to watch.
The 'students' had to sing a short song and count to five in Maori, then they were allowed a piece of apple and some cereal, lovingly hand-fed, bit by bit.
I replenished my etsy shop with some new baby shoes and wrap cardigans (I love making these...)
So I think I might take the afternoon off, and have coffee with my neighbour and take my time making dinner. But, what to make?
