Another full weekend

The year races to a close and we race against it to get things done.

As usual we chip away at the jobs needed done to get our kitchen together.

Swimming lessons have improved, or at least that’s what Mr Wolff tells me, I stay home to try to get some me time in.

Miss has taken to drawing on everything including herself.

It seems like she got half way through drawing whiskers on herself and didn’t like the effect, or maybe she was worried people would think she was trying to be Peter Criss?

A beautiful new baby boy arrived two weeks ahead of schedule, and it was delightful to hold a tiny one and drink in his smell and sounds.

Christmas parties have shown me that staying up past midnight does me no favours; especially when the miss wakes in a rage at 3 am, angry that we weren’t there when she fell asleep.

The old fireplace is finally cut out of the kitchen and the fridge is in, although a very tight squeeze that will need to be rethought in the long run.

Hope you are all having wonderful weekends and holding your loved ones extra close.

Baby showers and building

It’s been a busy weekend, getting our kitchen slowly back together, piece by piece.

More on that here.

Today has been a day off, probably ill advised but it’d be no good having a finished kitchen and no friends because we neglected our social life.
Today I hosted a baby shower for a friend who will soon welcome her fourth* baby. She had never had a baby shower and as this is her last baby I wanted to do something special for her. It was a lovely low key day, as she let it to a nice intimate group of her friends. I had a couple of hiccups with the games but all in all I felt I did okay considering its not really my forte.
If nothing else the cake I had made** for her was awesome.

*after today I have a gut feeling the baby will arrive Christmas Day but I didn’t tell my friend that as I’m not sure she’d be too happy.

**I normally enjoy making the cake but without an oven it was a little impractical. After getting such an awesome cake made I think I might be going down that path more often.
