Back to basics

Eek I am terrible at keeping my blog up to date.  I have big dreams of doing a super interesting blog and putting up great photos, but jeez, something called "life" gets in the way, how awkward :).

No seriously it's just been manic, what with changing jobs, having a great busy job now, nothing worse than having nothing to do and ending up time watching which is something I have never done, I am happy to say I'm working for an old boss and i can now complain about how busy I am but I know that it's the best thing for me.

Scouts, well that took over for the last few weeks.  Being out and about is great, I love the out and about bit, but it takes its toll.  It is a great way to hang out with my family though as we are all involved in Scouts so no complaints. 

Crafts? Totally ignored and neglected. 

Therefore I am reassessing things (again).  I have removed the Facebook app from my phone.  I have started switching my phone off when I come home.  The end result is that I have been able to pick up my crafts again and get on with things instead of looking how other people are doing. 

I made two granny squares last night for son #1s crochet blanket, I think from memory I have about 15 more blocks to make so ensure that it is a worthwhile sized blanket.  

No Christmas fairs this year, I simply didn't have the time however I am still making Christmas themed items for...next year.  

So what now, well I will keep turning my phone off at night, i will keep FB off my phone and keep it simple and see how it goes. 

Without sounding like i am lecturing, it's actually quite refreshing not to be checking my phone every time it buzzes, most times it's nothing but an ad or something that I really don't need to know. 

So let's see how I get on shall we?
