I am feeling.....

a little restless today.....

Don't ask me why because I don't know either, but, I have a feeling it has got to do with the fact that I have not been doing much stitching the whole of last week, and I have loads of housework still to do.

It's been a very hectic week for me last week, with the 2-day meeting in Langkawi from Monday to Tuesady (I left for Langkawi on Sunday, and only got back to KL on Wednesday after taking a one day break), followed by a trip to Labuan on Thursday for a site visit and project discussion, coming back to Kuala Lumpur only on Friday.

I did not feel tired at all, at least not until I got home on Friday afternoon after picking up my son from my mother-in-law's house. That's when I felt really bonked out tired that I slept for two whole hours without actually intending to.

I stitched a little, working on my Pincushion Exchange (PCE) organised at NNC , as I waited for my son who was having his art class. The PCE is due to be mailed out on 2nd April, and I still have much to do, but, I could not pick up the momentum to finish the piece this weekend, despite it being only a small piece. I still feel tired from the trips, and last nite, I did not sleep well, because my son climbed into bed in the middle of the night and he kept moving about that it kept me awake for most part of the night.

The laundry needs to be done, the meals to be cooked, the rooms to be tidied up, I am feeling restless because there is much to do, but so little time. School is back on tomorrow, and I still have not gotten all of my son's school things ready - his snacks for his break, his schoolbag, his uniform......I am glad that at least I made him do all of his homework before we headed on to Langkawi, so that is out of the way. Phew!

Just to get my stitching mood back into the swing, I am putting up photo of the partially completed PCE. I have also put up photos of my granny squares which so far I have completed 10, including 6 from the previous batch which I did some time back. I managed to do some crocheting while at the airport in Langkawi while waiting for my flight back to Kuala Lumpur.

I hope to get back into the swing of thinsg this coming week. I need to, if not, I will be lagging even further in my chores........
