I simply can't believe it's Saturday night already. This week really has gone past in the blink of an eye. It's been so full and busy, but really nice too!
It was the first full week back at school and that is going pretty well, apart from Rebe missing a day on Monday because she had a crick in her neck and Benny was off on Friday because of this...
I hope it clears up soon bless him, he's having a hard time with it :-(
We're still getting used to spending so much time in the car doing school runs, and we are also adjusting to the kids going to Andy for 2 afternoons instead of a full day during the week. Some of our afternoon time is spent trying to come to grips with Irish spellings (goodness me)! I feel so helpless trying to help Rebe with them, I don't know what the words mean or how to pronounce them. I will have to find someone or someway to help us with this!

Those things aside, life is full in other ways. The garden and the drill in the field are producing loads of goodies, so I've been busy harvesting, storing and processing that.

Knitting and crafting.
I am working on a few projects at the moment,
This is a re-knit I finished a wee while ago. A few years ago my mum knitted me a tank top with this yarn, but I lost quite a bit of weight and the top didn't suit me anymore, so I unraveled it and re-knitted it into this cardi. It's the first thing that I have actually knitted for myself that is larger than a hat! Since finishing this one I have re-knitted another cardi, and just in time too, the temperature has dropped here and autumn seems to have arrived.
Tomorrow is my day without the kids, and I have no plans other than going for a run, resting and relaxing. Refueling ready to face another week that will no doubt fly past at break neck speed!
Wishing you all a happy week too :-)
