My messy little life

I’ve just been reading through a blog called and I’m feeling quite unsatisfied with how unorganized my life is! This woman seems to have a perfectly dusted home, two kids and still has time to dye and cook and sew and knit perfect little garments for her girls and everyone around her!

Me? I have rubbish in every room, and about 100 different projects on the needles. The one I was doing today… I’m not even sure what it is, yet. It started as a scarf for Australia Day, until I realized that Byron is very rarely going to need an Australia Day Scarf, so it’s becoming a “late night at the fireworks” hat. I think.

It’s nearly 9, and Nathan’s gone to bed already, as he’s back to work tomorrow. He’s still getting up at 5am. The kids are both asleep by now, usually. Jasmine is a little harder to get to bed, but Byron will go after his milk at about 7:30. Sometimes you hear him playing in his cot a little, but that’s quite fine.

Why am I such a mess? I don’t even get around to brushing my hair some days… forget dusting the furniture! The vacuuming might get done once a week, if I’m lucky, and half the time it’s Nathan who has done it!

Maybe I should get onto the list I made myself and stuck to the cupboard wall.

Yes, I’ll do that tomorrow.

Right now, I’m going to spend 5 minutes cleaning the lounge room and then sit down and knit on the Vivian. It’s my goal to finish it for my 33rd birthday, though it’s looking tricky. I keep getting distracted by Australia Day knits and Hand-dyed baby socks. Sigh.

P.S. I'm not going to apologize for how long it's been since blogging, because I've been blogging on Knitterings. Click on my profile and you'll see Ü

P.P.S. This tickled my funny bone.
