 I'm currently sitting in the car waiting for my eldest to have his hair cut,  before me and the youngest go in to have ours done!  So I thought I would take advantage of the time.   

So... mending.  I was thinking actual mending and perhaps mending myself.  Do I need mending?  No.  But it can't hurt can it?!

Actual mending - I have a little pile of things that need fixing.

First up an old knitted jumper.  I noticed it had a few holes in it.   Now if I  loved wearing the sweater, I would be upset, but would also consider darning it.  However  I  don't love it - it is the wrong shape and not long enough.  I don't like the neckline which slips off my shoulders.  So, I have frogged it.

I have also mended a couple of holes in sweaters that I do love.  I ran out of time to take up Daniel's school trousers so I will do that tomorrow. 

I am trying to continue the writing from yesterday to help me to be mindful.  I also tried a blind contour this morning sitting on the patio.  I discovered these at the beginning of the week whilst watching a class on Creativebug.  You draw what is in front of you with 2 rules - you don't look at the paper and you don't take your pencil off of the paper.  I have only done a couple but I really like them.

And there we have today.  I am going to try to keep this up for the rest of the week, I  don't know how it will pan out when I  return to work next week,  but I shall take it day by day.
