I had so many things I wanted to get done today but it's 2.30 and the baby has just fallen asleep after being awake since 6.  

Gah, I guess that's just how it goes when you have a baby to look after. 

I'm constantly torn between immersing myself with the sweetest baby boy ever, spending time with my girl, getting stuff done around the house (my god, this one is a desperate situation) and doing some work. Then there's my dog who's crazy in need of a walk, the shopping, my family... You know the list. 

Sometimes I wonder if I should forget about getting work done and just be a mum for a while but it makes me happy to make stuff so I guess it's the best thing to keep juggling and just get the hell on with it.

Yesterday was a different story and I had hours free whilst the baby snoozed to get some stuff done. And so I managed to finish the print I'd started for Griff's bedroom. It's the one above. 

I think it's pretty cute. Just like the boy himself. 


  1. Oh man. I struggle too and, in the end, I always choose hanging out with The Kid. I can't tell you how many times I've had cereal for dinner, well after he fell asleep, because I just wanted to hang out with him.

    That print is adorable.

  2. Oh I love that print! Well done for being so creative with such a little one - I for one would just be sleeping! Are you going to put this one in the shop? x

  3. I'm with Jen ... I slept a lot when my three were very small ... providing the house isn't actually caving in I wouldn't worry ... and I love your print ... Bee xx

  4. It's lovely.....don't worry, you will soon have more time! :) x

  5. Ohhh, love that print! Just found you through My Little Acorns blog - off for a read now! Oh and leave the housework and just enjoy your gorgeous wee boy and lovely girl xx
