Starting from scratch

Every day I sit down and look at this and every day I tell myself that today I'll make a new post on my blog.

And yet, every night, I tuck myself in, and somehow another day has gone by without accomplishing that seemingly simple task.

So before I tick off today as another not quite completed day (although a simple blog post isn't really going to complete my day as any of you with children will know... there are far too many things I just never get around to it seems!), I thought I'd at least make an effort.

I do have a lot of things in the works around here at Chichiboulie and at the house. I have a few new prints that I've listed, I'm finally working on my fabric swatches again and hopefully getting the colours right for printing, the kitchen in the house is just about complete (although not quite there) and the snowdrops are coming up in the garden. So actually, I do have quite a lot I could chat about. It's the organisation that's missing. I seemed to have misplaced it somewhere and goodness knows, when you misplace organisation, you're in dire straits indeed!

So while I'm searching for organisation under piles of other things, I thought I'd share with you the next Olympic ski champion - of which country we're still not sure. The US seems to be doing quite well with their team (and hooray to Bode Miller for finally capturing that elusive gold!), but France is well.... best left undiscussed at this point. So perhaps we'll aim for that as our 3 year old refused ski lessons with the children of his age and insisted on skiing on the normal slope with the others. It was quite a day but motherly affection aside, I'm quite impressed!

Another 15 years of training or so and you may be seeing him chasing a medal or two!
