I'm home, after 6 weeks at Seonaid's house, helping with Thomas.  I had hoped he would be an easy baby like my son, who loved to sleep and be cuddled and was no trouble at all.  Alas, Thomas had some problems with feeding, and some gut issues, but I think we've solved those now.  He's 9 weeks old, weighs 6 kilos (13 lbs) and is growing at a great rate.  He's just started to chat and play with toys, and is a very handsome lad indeed.

In other news, his dad has finished his contract at the gas field where he's been working for the last 15 months, and is home for good.  That means that I'm not needed for a while, so I'll be home for a while.  It will be nice to pick up the threads of life from where I dropped them so many months ago.  Unless Hayden accepts another remote job, and then I'll be back helping out.

I've been home two days now, and I haven't sewn a stitch, too tired to throw myself into the sewing room just yet.  I've been knitting and watching DVDs; actually watching them instead of listening as I work.  It's like a whole new experience, LOL.  I have a stack of new fabric to fold and put away, and things to unpack, so it will probably be a while before I do start sewing.  It's so nice to be home, but I'm going to miss these two.

What an adorable baby! Glad he's doing better with the feeding problems. It takes a while to get back to "normal" after having been away and, for me anyway, after having been with my grandchildren. I'm usually worn out even though I loved spending time with them. Watching DVDs sounds like a great way to ease back into normal. I sometimes wonder what I miss when I'm stitching applique while watching a movie....

Welcome home :) Good to hear Thomas is doing better.

Take time to settle now you are back, let things flow, there is no need to rush. xx

So nice to spend the time with your family, sure they will welcome you back anytime to help out, even if your SIL is home! Enjoy being at home and the sewing machine and stash on hand.

They grow up so fast don't they, enjoy your time at home, when you settle in again.
