I am starting to enjoy the perks that come with being by myself. It’s been three and a half years, at least, since the last time that I slept alone in a bed, that takes getting used to.
I am really not a morning person, but my little guy is, so it is a rare treat to be able to stay in bed a little longer in the mornings.
Reading in bed with a cup of tea next to me, I almost forgot what that’s like.
I’ve also forgotten how much you can get done when you have several hours of uninterrupted time.
Knitting projects are strategically placed all over the house. I seem to be casting on for a new thing every day. Not that I’m actually finishing anything.
Catching up with everyone’s yarn along – not just a quick peep during rest time or in the evening.
Keeping busy is also a good way not to miss my guys too much, although of course I still do. Thanks to modern technology I’m being kept up to date about their days, and even get the odd photo sent to my phone. I know they are doing well. But I swear Kaya has already grown since last Saturday.
I have a list of things to do, in case of cabin fever. There are projects to make, places to go, sheds to clean. There’s also things like pyjama days and getting a pizza delivery on there.
I took a very long (and very slow) walk yesterday, I’ve been eating whenever I’m hungry.
I am trying to make the most of this time I have, but also, I really can’t wait for my family to come home.
