Lost my mojo

I have been away for ages I know things have happened. I have totally missed the end of summer. Just before we went on our holiday my power lead for my laptop packed up. I ordered a new one but it didn't arrive for weeks and when it did it was the wrong one, so I had to reorder and wait again.

I can't blame my time away fully on technical problems as I have been having my own technical problems. Whilst we were away on holiday I discovered I am expecting again... hooorray. Then about 8 weeks of constant sickness and tiredness hit me. I have only just started to feel better at 12 weeks.. hoorrray. I totally lost my mojo, I have not read any blogs could hardly be bothered to switch on the tv let alone the laptop. I have done nothing for 8 weeks except trying to get through the day, looking after little OB and looking forward to early nights. Crochet and making has been totally blown out the window I hope I feel well enough soon to start making again because I miss it. I also want to make something beautiful for the baby. I started a ripple blanket when we was away in France and the top picture is a picnic blanket I made before we went which I intended to finish while we were away. The french must have thought I was a bit nutty crocheting on the beach in 30 degree heat. It's still unpacked in my crochet basket I can't even bear to think about doing any more to it at the moment. Hopefully my mojo will return soon.

I had my scan on Tuesday and everything is looking ok so far so fingers crossed. So you will have to bear with me until I feel that I have the energy to do anything.

Congratulations on the news! Just leave everything alone and concentrate on yourself. The first 12 weeks especially can really take everything out of you so no wonder you weren't feeling your mojo! When your enerygy levels return you will feel more like it!

Congratulations! Hope you start to feel better soon and get a bit more energy. I am sure you will start to feel like crafting again as soon as you get your energy back. Can't wait to see the baby blanket. x

hello - and pleased to meet you! I see we share some blogging friends.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and entering the giveaway. It is such a shame about the ladybird blocks - and there is enough love for them to encourage me to sell them from my blog (or get my lazy arse into gear and set up my own website at last!)
Anyway - if you ever DO want me to make you some just drop me an email - I'm always happy to make little commissions (and never charge enough!)
In the meantime - you may win so hold fire!
Now - off to read more of your blog. Loving your chicken house I spy on the sidebar...(it's painted the same colour as ours!)
