Post Lockdown Work Trousers
Friday, 15 January 2021
welcome to the thunderdome and socks
its 2021, its been five/six months since my last blog post, we are currently in our second? major lockdown and here i am writing my blog.
Who'd have thunk it?
So what have I been doing? and why haven't i been blogging?
First of all there was the lovely thing called divorce , which I'm pretty sure is designed purely to suck the living soul out of a person and cause enough grief that most people think screw it and stay together no matter how miserable they are.
Next up i had to figure out how to juggle being a working mum and having a small child, huge shout out to my mum and dad for providing childcare and very often hot food when i was too tired to make my own.
Then i got a very lovely boyfriend, who although wonderful is a complete time suck. Suddenly i was faced with the choice of cuddle or sew and what can i say hes a really good hugger.
Then I had some medical problems to contend with.
Then the pandemic came and suddenly i was having to cope with having said small child at home all day and trying desperately to remember all of the things i learnt about at school.
Then i sold my house and moved in with my boyfriend, which is very similar to divorce in its soul sucking nature.
And now more pandemic.
So yeah that's basically been the last two years of my life in a nutshell.
Which hopefully explains my absence from blogging.
The past two years has been a bit of a trial to be honest. I completely lost my sew jo, my motivation to create and my energy. But in return I found some wonderful friends an excellent boyfriend and i was reminded of just how awesome my family are.
I've had a few projects on the go but nothing really filled me with joy the way it used to. I made blinds for my dads campervan, I made some stuff for work but everything else just seemed like a bit of a chore. Especially sewing.
Until today. After a few days of having the inkling that i might like to sew I finally sat down and actually made something and now I'm feeling pretty darn chuffed with myself.
Naturally its now to dark to take any nice pictures but i do have something else to talk about.
I MADE SOCKS!!!
