Accepting my limits, I’m only human after all.

It’s really hard for me to write this entry. I hate breaking promises to myself, and this feels like I’m breaking a promise to a lot more people than just me. I woke up this morning, sick. Didn’t feel like moving, being awake, sleeping, did I mention moving? I’m feeling a bit better tonight, but I’m not cured and I’m afraid I might be out-of-action again tomorrow morning. So I had to make a tough decision, do I attempt to finish the book on time and release something less than my best, or do I give myself a little less pressure and work on making the book fantastic?

I have this really great little ritual that I do every time I move house, rearrange my furniture or spruce up my room. And I didn’t even realise it was a ritual until yesterday when I did it again. You see, I have these gorgeous posters that used to belong to my mum (most of which are Anne Geddes photos of cute babies doing cute things in cute costumes!) and I like to have them covering my walls.

I first began using them way back when I was in primary school, and since then they’ve been displayed on countless walls of mine- bedroom walls, caravan walls (I used to have a caravan as a bedroom!!), house walls… anywhere I could put them I did. Each time they get put up, I go through the slow process of carefully peeling off the old hardened blu-tack and rolling fresh blu-tack on.

The corners of the posters have oily marks from layers of blu-tack, they’re a little bent from so much use, and some of the posters even have tears patched up with sticky-tape. But they mean so much to me, because my mum used to do the same thing with them- decorate her walls.

So yesterday, I put up my posters again, and I’m loving having them on the walls… Continue reading

I’m currently using this wool along with a matching red wool to make two scarf and beanie sets for my soon-to-be etsy shop. I was planning on opening up an etsy shop toward the end of this year, but I’m trying to step it up a notch so that it can help fund my next trip to Uganda (Africa) in September.
