...even if that occasion is coping with a poorly four-year-old home from pre-school!
I forgot how often young children come down with little viruses – Bunny is 10 and rarely home from school. She built up her immune system during her time at pre-school and early years of primary school.
But Little Flower, ah, she has a fresh, new immune system that isn’t as prepared for battle yet. So when a virus floats around the village, she’s bound to catch it, in varying degrees. Last night she succumbed to the croupy cough making the rounds, and we were both up most of the night. She’s fine in every other way, just can’t stop coughing, and we’re both exhausted now.
So it’s an imposed Nothing Day. No housework, no errands...I’ve requested a takeaway or ready meal for Darling Husband and me tonight, I know by 6 p.m. I’ll be a zombie! (Thank goodness for batch-cooked, veggie-loaded tomato sauce in the freezer, I can manage boiling pasta for the kids...)
However, I can only take so much Peppa Pig or Disney Channel as we snuggle on the sofa. My choices are limited to “easy” and “exceptionally mindless” WIPs and activities.
The brain cannot handle this today
It can handle this
I can’t face colour changes and fiddly rounds of this
But I can do a repetitive back and forth hooking of this
|A crochet item for a man that I actually like! From the latest issue of Simply Crochet...|
Fingers cannot stitch this today
|You didn't think I'd just cross stitch another flower, did you? Just look at those golds and peacock shades!|
But the repetitive stab stitch of this negative space project, yes
(There’s more news about that red heart, coming very, very soon...)
And, of course, lots and lots and lots of cuddles!
Do you have WIPs for every occasion? Tell me more...
