Well she isn t quite an elf but i had to write something to do with christmas...actually this post is about her pants.and they are green...
i found this great site (which i would give a link to if i knew how to) that taught me how to make baby pants from old sweaters.so this is my attempt.the arms became legs and the turtle neck became a belly warmer. i bought the sweater at a fleamarket for 50cents-yen. now all those sweaters that are too small for me right now ,sitting in my cupboards, are under threat...
as for little hana these days or should i say nights..she has decided it is time to scream.i have no idea how to stop her.tonight i had to laugh at myself because i was explaining to her that even though i screamed just like that when she was born i had a very good reason and she cant just scream for no really good reason. its just getting too cold to put her in the sling and do blockies.
if i were home i would be melting....but im in japan and its freezing.its also nearly christmas and my homesickness is amplified at this time of year.starbucks christmas carols just doesnt do it for me.
my camera has about 400 photos on it so to download anything will take an afternoon and i only have minutes because it is daytime and hana knows it is daytime so she knows to sleep only 20minutes maximum.so todays photo is from my mobile phone.i spent a week sitting at the kitchen table meticulously cutting away at coloured contact to make tiny christmas decorations for our big tree.sometimes it feels like i have no time and then its like i have all the time in the world.
