How’s your week going? Mine seems to be flying by, school is back, but four days in and I’m over the whole morning routine already. Between 7 and 8am time seems to race while the children actually seem to move backward – despite waking the whole house by 6am.
Thinking up nutritious lunches and getting them ready seems to be my biggest sticking point. As if its not enough to actually get something decent in their lunch boxes, we have this nude food matter to contend with – any food that goes to school must be stored in recyclable containers. I wholly agree (in principal) but maybe should just start packing lunches the night before when my brain is still functioning, and not in the early hours of the morning when I have no ability to reason with our container cupboard. It has a mind of its own, when I open the door every manner of container comes rushing out to meet me – and there never seems to be a lid to match the container I want. Pairing this with a rushing clock, and deciding on what fruit/cracker/yoghurt/sandwich combo will make today’s menu…. then fit in the available receptacles makes it all too hard! And Ive still got 10 weeks to go. Sob! Bring back the holidays!
Any lunch box/morning management tips you’ve got please send them through.
Anyhoo… I’ve got a crafty make to share: I spotted this lovely cushion over at Solstrikke. And wanted one of my own.You can find the free pattern here.It’s very simple, and quite ingenious… the ripple pattern is worked up as a tube, then you sew the top and bottom together over a round cushion form, and voila! One beautiful round zig zaggy crochet work of art!I think Im going to have to make another…
What are you working on? ♥J xxxxx
