Over the last couple of days since the New Year, my social media feed has exploded with sewists’ make nine plans. It was so interesting to see what everyone has in stored to make/sew/knit/crochet for 2018 and made me pondered about my plans more than I had intended to. I got curious and hunted down the one sewist who started this phenomenon which you can read all about it here. Kudos to Rochelle for such a clever spin off from the yearly best nine hashtag.
We are almost at the end of week 1 of 2018 (gasp!).. this week passed by in a flash as I played nurse and watched over the mister and junior who were both down with fever and a nasty flu. What a bumper! To ensure everyone ate well, I managed to cook our favourite beef stew which was really comforting to the tummy. Week 1 at work was also manic and it will probably stay this way right up till my maternity leave.
Speaking of which, this year is going to be one exciting year as we welcome our little one. It is going to be a year of transition, getting to know one another and settling into a new routine. With God’s grace, I’m sure we can do it!
One thing my family really enjoys is spending outdoor time. However there was a period of time we were really afraid of going out and about. You see, like me Junior is extremely prone to mosquitoes bites. But unlike me, he swells horribly and forms these scary looking water bubbles that will be painful when burst and takes a long time to heal.
Part of the outcome from having embarked on the Wardrobe Architect self-discovery journey was to be intentional about curating a wardrobe meant for the everyday. My initial idea was to overhaul my entire wardrobe and come up with a capsule wardrobe with staples and versatile pieces I could wear over and over.
Junior who is being looked after by his grandparents while we are at work spends pretty little time being around other little bubs. He spends most time with kids during Sunday school or the occasional playdate. So when a friend of mine suggested we go for a trial art class at Abrakadoodle, I jumped at the opportunity. Not so much for the art class, more for the socializing.
