Eva and I managed a walk to town today. It was so nice to be out of the house and walking quite comfortably. Something I didn't manage after the caesar with Grace and Amelia for a couple of months. So everything is going ok, well except for the feeding - a whole new experience for me as I didn't breastfeed the girls successfully, I tried to express for them for a while, but they were mainly bottle fed. I really wanted to try breastfeeding this time and I still am, but it's an hour by hour thing. It is taking a long time to get her to attach correctly and when I tried expressing I was only getting blood and the pain this has caused is just awful. Feeding time around here involves more swearing than an episode of Goron Ramsey. But I am preservering and hoping it gets easier soon.
I received some lovely mail last week. Sue knitted a gorgeous jumper, cardigan and hat for Eva out of the softest wool.
Some great fabric from Aunty Cookie. My photos don't do the fantastic brown linen fabric justice.
I managed to get to my sewing machine last night - the girls had been waiting for new pyjama pants for ages and they really are so quick to make. Pyjama pants are also a really good way to test a pattern as they don't have to be perfect. So I tested a new pattern for making winter pants and they seem to fit. The girls have picked out some corduroy for some new pants and have helped cut them out. Now to find another quiet hour to sew.
