Lazy post for the festive break

Well, lazy on my part that is; but not for you. While my fingers may not be a tapping words of wit, my eyes have been a reading so I am sharing a few links for your reading pleasure.

  1. First up a good read on why we need sleep and how it helps us to better solve problems (something all parents of small children can attest to!), check this out here.
  2. A great post on how we are torturing new mothers, here.
  3. A great post on why it is important to spend time in nature, here.
  4. A yes the world has gone mad, or too PC post, here.

Finally I am delighted to say that I have been putting my relaxing time to use, and have finally finished this shrug for my now not so little girl. As someone who has yet to knit a tension square before knitting a garment I am pleased to say that while I started this a year ago in the 2 – 3 year old size, it does fit my now 3 & 1/2 year old. Though I will be putting it on her every chance I get this summer!

Hope you are having an enjoyable festive season regardless of how you do or don’t celebrate this time of year.
