Friday Four 17/02/2012

As I started the 'four things Friday' posts I've decided to stick with it, this week's is a list of things that have been happening lately.

1.  Embroidery!  I was inspired by a blog I discovered a few days ago, particularly this post, I just love the doodle style heart.  So I dug out my embroidery threads and aida from when I used to cross stitch, and using a book I bought before Christmas I began practising stitches.  Excuse the appalling phone snap, I will get a better photo when I complete it.  I added on another coloured section yesterday and hope to make some more progress today.  I can definitely see me embroidering a bit more, even if just to use up some of this floss that has been sitting around unloved for about 7 years *blush*  I have embroidered small things in that time and always planned on stitching truly pretty items (hence buying the stitch dictionary) but it's just not happened yet.

2.  I am feeling somewhat at a crossroads in my life right now.  I'm having major life changes thrown in my direction and I am just not sure which way to go, after an initial stress out over the thought, those same changes are now looking more appealing.  It would change everything however, and I'm just not sure I am brave enough for that yet.

3.  Sadness.  I can't really explain why at this moment in time, but I am certain it shall be explained in due time.

4.  Half term.  My boys are currently off school for the week and we have done nothing exciting at all.  We've hidden in the house because my health hasn't been great, and a lack of funds means I can't just throw money at them to entertain them.  Instead we've been playing games, watching films, and being silly.  I am planning a treat for them at the end of the month though, they're really quite well behaved children and I'm very fortunate.  It feels a little bit like a waste of a week but at least they will be going back fully rested up which my youngest definitely needed.

I'm now trying to think of other week day alliterations I could do as they are quite interesting :D


  1. I think playing games, watching films and generally being silly is sometimes just as good as going out and doing stuff, especially if you're not feeling 100%. I'm sure the boys have had fun and enjoyed spending time with you rather than being in school. You are fortunate to have well behaved children, but that's because you've brought them up well. They're a credit to you, Liss!

    1. Thank you Nikki, I didn't really have to put much work into Harley once he was past toddlerhood, but Carter was another matter lol, I am quite happy to take the credit there as he was so difficult! I thought Harley was a terrible toddler until I met his brother ;)

      Carter would rather do anything than be in school!
