I've been trying to write this post for a while now but am only just managing a little bit at a time .

The weather outside is pretty rubbish, it's raining again but without the rain we wouldn't have the lush greenness and blooms like in the above photo would we .

For the past few weeks I just haven't been able to settle , I'll start doing something and within 10 minutes I'll be doing something else. The only thing I've succeeded in doing for any amount of time is to clean and with having two boys and two German Shepherds there's always quite a lot to do.

The baby cardigan I had started in my last post , well, I've done the back but got a bit stuck on the left front part of it. Whenever I used to get stuck with knitting I would always ring my mam and this time I couldn't . I ended up sitting  with it on my knee in floods of tears.... A Ravelry friend managed to help me understand where I had gone wrong so I tried to continue with it and thought I had but when I had finished that part I realised I'd mixed up two parts of the pattern and had got it completely messed up . It's now sitting in my knitting bag and every time I even think about trying again I just become all teary so I'm thinking that maybe now isn't the right time to do it .

I'm sure things will calm down but I'm not sure when and it may even happen without me realising , for the minute it's just taking it one day at a time and not forcing myself to do things.

My apologies for not always commenting on your blog posts, I hope you understand.
