It is easy to be busy and yet get to the end of my days and wonder what I’ve done. Did I really do anything worthwhile? Did I just move from one chore to the next? Have I got anything to show for the hours?
Thankfully, my 365 Things I Know photos have become a way of recording my progress as well as sharing my tips and knowledge. As I look back over them to collate posts like this, I see how much I have actually achieved. For example, the C2C blanket that I started a few weeks back is nearly finished now. I’ve learnt a new skill and created something warm and snuggly and lovely. Look out for a ‘finished’ picture soon – I hope.
I guess it is good to know that I am making progress in small steps each day even when it doesn’t feel like it.
