Where does the time go? Days seem to be flying by at the moment - the month is half over and I am already filling in days on February's page.
I had a very relaxing weekend. Mr. Mee a Bee was home on Saturday which makes a big difference to my outlook. He did my usual Saturday morning things - dropped Biggie off at his club, took Little Guy to the park, put on a load of washing - while I had a friend over for coffee. Nice!
After lunch the kids went to visit their grandparents. With the kids away I was free to watch television - all the gruesome serial killers, lurid sex scenes, drug-induced frenzies, etc that you can't watch with kids around (CSI, ColdCase, Law & Order, etc). I had the sewing machine and the TV on for over twelve hours. I probably would have gotten a lot more done without the TV but it would not have been as enjoyable.
It's lucky I had that time to myself since Little Guy appears to have come down with Chicken Pox. Two spots on Saturday have turned into dozens today. He's still his cheerful self which is a blessing but I am on full alert as you are when one of the kids is sick.
In the picture, taken in NZ, Little Guy was all dressed up in his gorgeous handmade t-shirt from Mixit. It seemed a perfect match for his fantastic handmade shorts from BrusselSprouts. Hopefully my little model won't end up with any awful chicken pox scars. So far his face is relatively untouched. Fingers crossed it's not too unbearable for him and he gets better quickly.
