Some things I've knitted

As I've said before I love knitting. If I'm feeling peed off and anxious I go and knit, it always helps to relax me and makes me happy (when I'm not dropping stitches!)

Here's some things I've made, all of these are my first attempts, so I can only get better with experience. :)

My first Sackboy

My First Puppy

My first xmas tree decoration

I have made more things, but I can't post them here till after xmas, as they have been made as xmas presents. :)

Turning 40...

In a couple of months, I'll have reach the grand middle age of 40. Why don't I feel excited about this though? I find it hard to believe, I'm actually going to be 40!!

They say life starts at 40, how does it?

Since my eldest son moved out a year ago, and who now lives with his girlfriend, I feel so old. It's like I'm now where my parents were, the old fogey. Yet, I know deep down that's not true. I don't see other people in their 40' 50's or 60's as old. Yet I see myself as old lol. Weird hey?

I do feel a responsibility since my boys have all grown up to act in a respsonsible adult way. When they were small, I felt like a kid myself and loved to join in their games. I was always playing their board games with them, hide and seek etc. I do miss those days. They were fun.
I know I have all that to look forward to in the future with my future Granchildren.

I'm wondering, do all mums feel like this as their children grow into young adults?

Meditation, is one of the best things you can do for relaxation and peace of mind. I used to think it was just sitting as still as you can. But there are so many different ways to meditate.

Gardening is meditation
Painting & sketching is meditation
Knitting, sewing, cross stitch, crochet, is meditation
House work is meditation.

Anything that causes you to become focused, relaxed and to be away somewhere in your 'zone', is meditation.

For me, knitting is my number one way to meditate. Wow it makes me feel great!

How do you meditate?
