I Have Decided

that even though there is so much that still needs to be done around the house, I'm going to take some time off this weekend from moving boxes and unpacking and finding space for stuff that we don't really need but want to keep for whatever reason and spend some time on me.

I am tired.

In fact, I am totally exhausted.

We went to our last Auslan (sign language) lesson last night and I realised that, although we had already signed up before we knew we were selling our home, maybe I should have asked if I could defer until the second semester as I really don't feel like I have been able to give it the attention that it deserved.  I thoroughly enjoyed the course but feel that I am not nearly as fluent as I would like to be.  It all comes down to practice and I haven't done enough of that.

This Saturday afternoon I have booked myself in for a massage and I am hoping that will go a long way towards making me feel better.  I also plan on doing some reading and maybe even some more knitting.  My baby blankets have taken a bit of a back seat lately and this is the time that they are really needed.

The rain is a welcome respite for our gardens.  It's just a pity we haven't been able to get the 4 water tanks connected to collect the water from the roof.

Over the weekend I will take some photos of the new hall table we bought along with the outside lanterns and the Blessing Buddha that I bought who will greet clients when they arrive for their treatment.  He is extremely heavy and I am thankful that A was able to go past and collect it because we tried to bring him home on Tuesday night and, after it took A I don't know how long to get him out of his crate, we found that part of his robe had broken off - so he landed up going back on Wednesday to get one that wasn't broken.  He had him outside the door waiting for final instructions for placement from me when I got home from work.

Have the best Friday and an even better weekend !

    1. That's what my SIL keeps telling me - maybe I'm just old enough to realise that I need to look after me so that I can continue to look after the rest of my family !!
      Have a wonderful weekend yourself !

  7. Knitting, reading and massage all sound like great ways to unwind! You definitely need and deserve a bit of 'me' time after all the exhaustion of moving. How great that you are learning AUSLAN! I have learnt a bit because I wanted to teach my daughter to sign, but I have been quite slack in doing that. I am also in the process of moving house and all my goals just went out the window when that started!
