I don’t think I’ve done one of these since before the little duo came along! I think when you have a newborn all time for yourself is gone so I didn’t really have much to write about that wasn’t baby related. I’m starting to get some time back and I have finished my first book of the year so it seemed a good time to start these up again.
Please read my first A Little Bit Lately post to find out what these are all about, although I’m sure you get the idea. These have been inspired by Sometimes Sweet’s Currently posts so check her out if you like it!
Feeling pretty proud that I’m nearly three months into my twins lives and I have managed to read one whole book from start to finish! My concentration levels have plummeted and I just can’t seem to set my mind to anything when I have babies to focus on but the last few weeks the real world has started coming back to me. I read The Ocean at the End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman (a Christmas present from my lovely husband) and loved every minute of it. My best friend is getting married soon and she had her hen weekend in York. Obviously I couldn’t go for the whole weekend but I managed to make it over for the Saturday to enjoy the shenanigans and that meant a two hour train journey each way, and that meant a chance to read! I finished my book on the train journey…it was a good day.
Again, a sign of my terrible concentration I am watching such mindless TV, Netflix is my friend! We started Breaking Bad, a little bit late to the party but I just love it. There are so many series I need to finish, Sons of Anarchy, Mad Men, The Walking Dead. Instead I find myself watching Brothers and Sisters and even worse, The Vampire Diaries! I love that I can just totally switch off and watch some crap TV for an hour.
The train journey also gave me a chance to get the ipod out so there was a few random shuffles which threw out some old favourites. There was a real mix, Lissie, Skunk Anansie, Rage Against The Machine, REM, Lana Del Ray and every now and then a Disney song, I can’t escape being a Mother for long!
I’m really getting in to crocheting! My mother-on-law showed me how do it last year, I really enjoyed it but just messed around with little bits. I’ve started a proper blanket now made up of Granny Squares and I’m loving it so much, I find it really relaxing even if it does take me a while. I can’t wait to get started on something else, I’m hoping to branch out into more adventurous items.
How I am ever going to get out and about properly with Lucas and the twins?! I really want to get back to our playgroup after Easter, I’m determined to give it a go! I’ve really missed meeting up with the other mums and they have all been great coming to visit me and keeping in touch but it isn’t the same as getting out the house. I feel like I’ve made some lovely friends there and it’s great for Lucas too. My mother-in-law is taking him at the moment but I’m itching to get back, I just don’t think I have enough hands for all three kids outside the comfort of my own home. I’m just going to try it, what the worst that can happen?!
