I wish the day had more than 24 hours

I desperately need more hours in the day. It’s frustrating to know that the day is coming to an end and I’ve hardly done anything productive. Most of my days start off very early but today I got to sleep til 8 am which I can’t remember when I’ve done last. Jumping out of bed, checking to my baby because I though he was already up. He wasn’t which made it possible to go to the toilet in peace and make breakfast. Between breakfast and my son’s first nap I managed to workout. He didn’t wake up before after my shower which was amazing, but after that the day just went into a blur.

We drove to his grandparents in the early afternoon and came home 2 hours later. That would give me more than enough time to do what I need to do. But between diaper changes, making dinner and giving my son a bath there’s not much time left for me.


I’ve been sitting at my sewing machine for the last hour but I just can’t get it to work properly. I’ve seen X amount of YouTube videos on ‘how to’. Everything from threading to sewing, but they all make it seem so simple and here I am still struggling. If I haven’t told you I got a SERGER for my birthday this year but it was bough on eBay so it wasn’t exactly brand new. I thought I could just sit down and start sewing but one problem after another started appearing. I’ve change both knives, needles and all 4 threads – and I still can’t figure it out. Why does everything have to be so bloody difficult with me?
That was my Sunday rant. I just had to get it out so that I wouldn’t go crazy. Sometimes I wish things would just be simple, but I guess that’s just too much to ask for.

Anyway, I hope for a better day tomorrow. Until then, goodnight.

From spring to snow

Today was a cold and gray day. Unlike yesterday when the sun was shinning and the flowers still bloomed. What a different a day can make. Now the sidewalk is covered with snow and there is yet again a cold breeze outside. It may go without saying but we stayed inside today. Even though I desperately need to make a trip to the grocery market because our fridge is running empty soon. Other than staying inside today I managed to clean a little, take an afternoon nap and start a new sewing project. Hopefully I’ll be able to share the process and result with you soon. I’ll be heading off to bed in less than twenty minutes so I’ll say goodnight now.

Long day, short night

Is it possible to be more exhausted, sore and tired? Had a short night last night and today isn’t going to be any different, plus all the soreness from my two past workouts. But it’s worth it! And the up side is that we’re having breakfast at school tomorrow morning and just a cozy self-care day with my class, meaning we can do whatever we’d like on eachothers hair. 

Other than that our salong at school today had it’s last day with customers. I had a lovely lady who is going to come as a model when I start my training as well so I’m utterly grateful for that. And like always I had my usual Thursday work day from 5 – 9 pm, so I can’t wait to hit the bed in a minute or two and fade into dreamland.

Good night world,
