First of all, I finished the first sock! Woo! I managed to do all of it without resorting to my DPNs; you can do magic loop of a sort even on needles this small. And I did to get the last couple of rows done. So that is encouraging that doing bigger socks would work even more effectively.

I didn’t get a lot done today though, not really. Littlerbit was on super-cute point, and that point included lots of time on me and not any time sleeping. I’m actually fine with her moving on from naps, since she’s starting ‘school’ part-time after Easter. But that meant that I held her for over an hour trying to get her to snuggle down and doze off, and finally I just had to let her go and call it a day. It wasn’t the end of the world, really. I read somewhere that rest can contribute towards well-being in the same way that sleep can, so I don’t begrudge her cuddles if it means she’s resting. Plus you know, I love the cuddles, and it’s not going to be much longer before she’s properly too big for me to wedge across my person.

She is also one of the sunniest people I have ever met. Yes, she’s at that age where she throws a wobbly at the drop of a hat, making sure to catch your eye before diving into her performance. But those pass quickly and she’s back to being an inventive, mischievous silly little person. She’s good company, though I admit that there is a part of me that fervently looks forward to having the house to myself during the day again (though watch I get bored of that and want to go into the office, ha ha).

But yeah, that’s me trying to focus on the good things.  I’m currently in a really bad patch of chronic fatigue; I get a ‘good night’s sleep’, but wake up feeling like I’ve been beaten up. I can’t remember the last time sleep actually led to me feeling rested on the regular, but then, that’s because it’s been very very infrequent over the past 20 years. I don’t know why it’s getting me down so badly lately, but it is. I do my best to remain cheerful as I always do, but it’s hard.

Aaaand it’s almost bedtime, so I’m off. Wish me a night of restful sleep, eh?
