Hello! Long time between posts. I’m just about to welcome my husband home after a month working overseas. In the past 12 months he has worked internationally for almost 6 months. We are all exhausted. Hopefully this trip will be the last for a long time.
Single parents, partners of military personnel and FIFO workers and all of you that regularly do long stints without your partners, you are my heroes. Seriously if I could I would come over to all of your houses and hand deliver a homemade lasagne, a chocolate cake and a bottle of wine.
I’ve been doing a bit of sewing but I don’t have any pictures and no finished projects. My dining room looks like a football team has had a brawl in a patchwork shop so it’s time for some serious cleaning. I often find that I’m more inspired once I return everything into it’s place and I can start to work from a clean desk.
Winter is well and truly here and just after my husband went away I subscribed to Netflix. Which is basically the reason the sewing room has been ignored. My US readers will laugh – Netflix is old news for you – but in Australia it’s only just arrived and I’m thrilled. I love a good binge watch and what could be better than hopping into my nice warm bed once the kids are asleep and watching back to back episodes of Brooklyn Nine Nine? (This is not sponsored. I just like the service and I’m still in the honeymoon period of WATCHING ALL THE SHOWS!)
So far I’ve watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt series 1 (excellent and hilarious), most of Chef’s Table (fab if you are interested in foodie programs. Best episodes are Niki Nakayama and Francis Mallman, weird guy but I loved the incredible landscape shots of Patagonia.) I’ve also watched series 1 of Brooklyn Nine Nine (so funny) and a few movies. Really excited for Orange Is The New Black series 3 which comes out next week!
If I order my groceries online, I probably never need to leave the house again…
So what about you? Any good series on Netflix that you can recommend to me? And if you are solo parenting right now, high fives and fist bumps to you.
Better go and pump up some Iggy Azalea and clean the sewing room…wish me luck.
