Day 31: Love Fridays!

There are several reasons to love Friday this week.

Friday is my day for hanging out with Pirate Jim. As regular readers would know, sometimes it's desperately trying and exhausting, but many days, it's good fun and exhausting. Today was Good Fun. We made lanterns and monsters from empty toilet rolls, went scuba diving in the lounge room. When the Princess and I got tired we could sit on the couch-beach with PJ told about all the under-sea things he could see. We did some other secret-squirrel crafting for an imminent birthday that I will show you later, we had a stress-free trip to the shops (shame about all the boofheads and morons who were also at the shops), we watched Playschool, which has thankfully overtaken the Wiggles as PJ's favourite viewing and we read stories.

It was a fun Friday.

I love Friday because I'm going to cast on something new tonight after finishing the birthday jumper. I've no idea what, but it will be something that's not a pink-striped jumper!

And I love Friday because today is the end of Blogtoberfest - and I made it! I didn't think I would there for a while, but here we are, 31st of October and 31 posts!

I haven't got to visit nearly as many blogs as I would have liked - I'm barely keeping up with my regular reads - but I have discovered some fabulous new blogs that I will be dropping in on regularly (in an ideal world!).

I also feel like I've got some of my blogging mojo back, after a dire few months where I felt all dried up and without inspiration. I almost certainly wont be blogging every day from here, but I've got some momentum and feel like I can find the blogginess in the everyday once again.

I must extend a huge thankyou to Bigcat for dreaming up and hosting Blogtoberfest, she's done a brilliant job. Thanks too, to others who have held my hand for part or all of the way.

Now, if it's OK with you, I may just not blog for a couple of days, and knit instead!

It was a fun month and seems to be over too soon. It was harder and not as hard at the same time, than I thought it would be.

Aren't imaginations wonderful things? I loved the things my kids would come up with.

What a lovely day!

Enjoy the blogging reprieve and knit to your heart's content!

Sounds like a great start to the weekend. Friday tends to be one of my least favorite days, since it's the start of a long, crazed weekend; it's always a joy to read about people who get to enjoy their days off.

It's been a pleasure to read through your blog this month. I've been reduced to mostly lurking, but I've read--and certainly enjoyed--every post. Kudos to you for balancing everything so well. Enjoy the knitting time!

Good Job George. With the demands of young children keeping up with a daily blog was challenging I'm sure. There is nothing like a self imposed challenge to get the creative juices flowing.
