knitting and the life I almost have around it

one sleep

well, time has sort of flown and sort of not at the same time. the monkey returns tomorrow afternoon and it will be a great relief.. but i'm also overwhelmed with tiredness. i'm sort of hoping he has ferocious jet-lag so i don't look so weak needing to go to sleep before nine tomorrow night.
school has been good, if busy. lots of teachers away at band camps and development days and so the relief staff are pretty stretched. one just gets very tired. i fell asleep on the couch this afternoon.. which is a lot less relaxing when you're alone somehow. when i have a rough day usually, and fall asleep, i get woken by monkey with a cup of tea about 15 minutes before dinner will be ready (all those socks i knit for him make a little more sense now dont they?). It kind of sucks to have to wake up and have an argument with the fridge by yourself. and i am not in the least delightful when i have to wake up. so yes. tired and a wee bit cranky.

i am past the heel for my first peacock sock.. no new pics because vic's is a little clunky and i cant be arsed. i am about 3rd through second body piece of pink sweater...

and i'm fading. I give up. i loves you all, thankyou for the kind words.

Peace Out

    Congrats on the job! That takes a load off your mind, doesn't it. I wanted to tell you that the pink grapefruit yarn that you dyed (Olivia sent me some) is so wonderfully cheery that I am looking forward to having happy feet all winter!

    No sleeps! Hope Monkey had a great trip, and that you're feeling a bit more rested (on the weekend perhaps)? I don't know how you do it, all that teaching... hard work, even when you love it. And yes, you're very lucky to have someone who makes dinner AND brings you tea :)
