Two simple days

December 25th. Paper-making for P with some help from M, then M and I made a doll and I sewed a water bottle carrier for her. I also put some new elastic in the pyjamas Grandmama gave M for her first Christmas so that A could wear them. No photo of that because he was snoozing in them.
What a blissfully simple, happy and productive day.
Followed by another almost as simple on the 26th when we finished the day by all strolling around together in the mist foraging a salad to accompany dinner. Yes, really. That was a lovely holiday!

Changing rooms

P and I are swapping rooms. He is moving his meditation and painting into the teeny space off the playroom which was previously the sewing room. Which means I now have a big big room for sewing/office/guest space. As always, moving into a new space brings piles of good intentions for being super organised and productive. We shall see. Hmm.

Breastfeeding mothers always face their baby while cosleeping

except when they turn to face the larger and much more restless (and more like a purple fairy) child. And yes, I was sleeping on the gap (ow!).

Garden Update

The chickens have been banished from the main vegie beds. As you can see, one at least ignores our decrees. Actually she is looking for a place to lay. Yesterday we cut out all the weeds from around the compost bin then Paul built a new bed and spread the compost out init before moving the bin. While I was clearing the weeds I found a little nest with seven eggs in it. When I let the chickens out this morning she ran straight over and through a gap in the fence we hadn't noticed then started looking frantically around for her sheltered laying spot that was no longer. Guess she'll have to find somewhere else (maybe even in the luxurious nesting box we provided for her)
