Other bits n bobs!

Sunday night feeling

Hi there, how are you? I have to be honest and tell you that I’m exhausted. The autumn is such as busy time for me. New class to settle in and a never ending ‘to do’ list. I had a good chat with Mr P this afternoon as I realised that I put myself under an incredible amount of pressure (all from my own self I must hasten to add, none of it from him). I seem to think that I should have everything organised, clean and ship shape within our home as well as working a full time job which at present has me working at least 50 hours a week. Do you find you put that kind of pressure on yourself too? How do you cope? I read about one busy business woman who sets herself lots of mini rewards to work towards as a way to stay focussed. I think with me I may need to change my state of mind and realise that I am actually a human and not someone with super human powers! It’s a very humbling position to be in and one that’s probably very good for me right now.

On to other things though…

Here are some autumn traditions that I have that I thought I’d share with you as I’m hoping to start them over the next few weeks:

Knitting. I love it. Not very good at it but what I lack in skill I make up for in enthusiasm. I’m going to try knitted jar covers like these:

I may also try my hand at an autumnal wreath. I’ve never tried one before as I’ve only ever associated wreaths with Christmas but I think it may brighten up either the front door or a door in our house:

You can find the online tutorial for this wreath here.

Have a good week – don’t work too hard!
