High




A bunch of knitted hats, stacked high for the photo.

About as high as the stress levels here today, despite our efforts to get out and enjoy the sunshine.

Not nearly as high as the high-pitched screams every few minutes from any/all of my girls fighting over this or that or nothing really at all.

Substantially higher than the amount of hours sleep I'm getting each night lately.

Far, far, far higher than my patience levels as a result of said sleep deprivation and said relentless bickering.

Overwhelmingly higher than the number of pages I'm managing to read each evening of White Tiger by Aravind Adiga.

And roughly as high as the glass of wine I'm about to pour myself right now.

Summoning one last burst of energy for the Yarn Along before collapsing for the night.

  1. Oh Greer, I know you're tired and ratty, but can I just say to cheer you right up alongside that glass of wine that you write mighty fine copy. (I'd join you but wine right now would send me off to the land of nod...) Hope the sleep improves soon. xx

  2. My admiration for those gorgeous hats is highest of all! We're going to New York in November and I might just have to commission you to make some for Lalie! Will you be selling them?? xx

  4. Hopefully a glass of wine and a good night sleep will make the rest of the week more enjoyable. If not you can always buy more wine! ;)

  12. I remember those days, when you have so much that you need/want to do, but above all else you need sleep and the rug rats won't even play nice.

    Have you tried chamomile tea? For the girls I mean, though I'm sure you'd benefit too. Up to half a cup a day is fine for under fives, twenty minutes before bed time. I swear my lot used to sleep longer because of it.

    Nice hats :)

  13. Enjoy that glass of wine. Sounds like you really need it.

  14. Yes, most definitely enjoy that wine and the few minutes of quiet time that will hopefully come with it. And although it's a cliche, it's one I find comforting at times when my little guy isn't sleeping....this too shall pass.

  15. Ooh! Lovely hat colours! I hope the wine helped, and the girls are in a more helpful mood tomorrow.

    My small girls drink chamomile tea too. I can't tell if it helps much or not, because mine are also fighting like cats and dogs right now (or in fact, just like cats, which may be worse).

  16. Lovely hats! Such pretty colours... Sleep deprivation is the one thing that drives me loopey. I really cannot cope without a decent night's sleep. Hope you have a better day tomorrow! x

  17. without sleep I'm in a bad mood all the time. I don't sleep much by nature if not occasionally, but I need to sleep well. These days I find it difficult because I'm really nervous, i'm a bit sleepless too. I love your hats.

  18. Love the hats and that is a great book choice. Hopefully you will get the chance to read it. If not I suggest headphones and a talking book version which might kill too birds with one stone!

  19. Oh my, if you substituted leg warmers for those hats I could written the same post right now! I hope you get your sleep all sorted out, it's so hard to mama on little sleep!!

  20. I feel your pain Greer. I am shouty mum lately as we re-adjust to the school routine here. I love the way your wrote that post. I like to self medicate with a very large glass of wine (any color - not bothered) the minute my two are in bed. Hope today was better. xx

  21. I hope your sleep rhythm will balance out soon - my little guy has never (!) slept past six thirty, so if we reach that time in the morning I'm reasonably content. And I am really not a morning person!
    The stack of hats is lovely though! I have a similar one this week :)
