How was your morning?
Mine was pretty hectic.
It began with me trying to sew a Santa hat to one of my daughter’s jumpers, because it’s Christmas jumper day at school and we didn’t have time to buy her one.
I had to sew. In the morning. Chugging breakfast and sewing, whilst reminding my daughter to stay on target and eat her breakfast too…
I hate sewing.
Ask me to build a window seat and I’m your woman. But ask me to sew… and it is pure hell.
I had to start over three times. Three times. It was probably one of the simplest sewing tasks in the world… It took me three goes.
Anyway, eventually I wrestled the newly minted Christmas jumper into submission. Then I grabbed all the presents for the teachers and bagged them appropriately. Helped my daughter to dress (she’s three and still needs some help with this and other important things like brushing teeth). Got the dog in the car (to take her to the vet), took child-face to school. Gave the teachers their gifts. Took my dog for a quick walk. Got a call from husband-face. Had to go home to get something husband-face needed and meet him with said thing. Then rush off to the vet. Got to the vet ten-minutes late.
Finally – I am home and writing this.
That’s this time of year – sudden bursts of mania and a bonkers to-do-list.
So, if you also have toddlers and you find yourself desperate for 5-minutes of calm amidst it all… please take advantage of this little Christmas gift from me to you!
