- Snow. Fed up with not being able to go about my normal business. Fed up with my routine being disrupted and getting nothing done. Fed up with the enforced loss of momentum on new year goals.
- Baby making. Went for first follicle track this morning. It went fine, but the process is now not clear and requires me to liaise between scanning people and clinic on an almost daily basis. Not only is this aggravation that I could do without, it is also hassle due to the clinic being very poor at anything admin related. I have thus far put off phoning them but have to do it today :(
- Star Teething. I feel really guilty about even suggesting that this could be contributing to my fed upness. He is cutting two molars and has dry, red cheeks, an endlessly runny nose, three 'very loose' nappies a day that he tries his best to put his hand in whilst I am trying to clear up the debris, and a very sore bum that makes him cry when I wipe it :( I feel so sorry for the poor little mite. He's been like this for about 3 days now and do you know, he hasn't got whingy, he hasn't gone off of his food, and he hasn't stopped sleeping 12 hrs a night. He's such a brave little soldier bless him, but I hate to see him in any kind of discomfort and know that he must be suffering. In the meantime I am constantly running around wiping his nose, applying cream to his cheeks and battling through nappy changes. Surely, if he can put up with it all without getting fed up, I can ?
I must go in a mo and phone the clinic, but in the meantime a request for advice. If you are a regular reader you will know that one of my new year goals (which I haven't even finished posting and we are nearly in the middle of Jan - Bah) was to learn to sew. Step one was to retrieve my sewing machine form the shed. I have done this but I fear that by the time I buy the missing foot pedal and cables, and the elecricity cable, and get it serviced it would be cheaper to but a new, or reconditioned one.
So, my question is what features should I look for ? I don't want to spend alot of money but I do want one that will serve me well whilst learning and beyond ? I look forward to hearing your suggestions.
In the meantime, you know what I've gotta do...
