so thank you for reading
and i look forward to blogging another 300 and more
we had run out of milk this morning, so instead of zooming down to get some in the car, we all went for a walk/ride down to the local supermarket. it was great :: Hugo rode his bike, Archie concentrated on steering his !! it took as ages but the fact that we all slowed down a bit and enjoyed the moment we were in was worth it. we explored a new pipe that workmen had dug in the road during the week. the hole was deep and we could see one end of the pipe but where was the other end ? all of a sudden a loud "there it is" as we found it on the other side of the road !!!! we stood and talked to some neighbours that i usually just wave at as i pass by and the kids got to have a play together and we supported our local community by stopping at the coffee shop and having a "chino"

its funny how your mind works, Monday and Tuesday i obviously was not in the right head space to unravel yarn, as i only managed to untangle small bits and it was incredibly frustrating.
last night i sat and methodically unwound the whole lot, only taking a few hours to unravel the tangled mess. it was therapeutic and relaxing as well as incredibly satisfying that it all became a beautiful ball of yarn ready to knit with. i sat and thought many thoughts with a clear relaxed mind; i guess i was in a good place last night. lets hope i stay there.

this morning i sat down to roll a skein of yarn into a ball, so i could start on my next knitting project :: a pair of socks.
due to the fact that in this house i only ever manage to sit down for around 2 minutes before something happens between the boys that i have to go and mediate, or i am asked to find something, do something.... i guess that's my mum hat on.
anyway i sat down this morning and started rolling the ball, only to have to go and rescue a precious Lego building. i thought i had carefully put the skein down, but alas when i started again it was in the HUGEST MESS you have ever seen.....
i thought that this would have taken me a little while this morning and then i had planned to start knitting this afternoon in front of the fire on this cold wet Melbourne day.but no...... a girlfriend and her kids came over and she spent all afternoon in a therapeutic state of bliss by the fire unravelling the yarn for me. john looks at it and shakes his head as it frustrates him, he doesn't get the whole process, journey, satisfaction thing, although at 10pm last night i was starting to agree with him.....

for you my hugo
a hat of your own
made with all my love
.....for a little boy that doesn't really like wearing hats, i think he thinks that it draws attention to him and he doesn't blend as well ( a bit like his mum really !!) he looked excited during the day yesterday when i was nearing finishing and as he tumbled into bed last night he asked that when i finished if i could put it next to him when he was sleeping. he woke up happy as he found it next to him this morning.
thank you to Michelle from twoandsix for posting her beehive beanie pattern on her blog.
