Goodness me...she blogs!


I'm still around, I can't believe I haven't blogged in almost a month. Life really gets in the way sometimes.

I had a lovely birthday, DH and the girls found me some wonderful presents, and even made me a bottle of homemade lemonade concentrate as I crave lemonade constantly at the moment. Mum made me a beautiful bolero from RYC Mother and Baby, it's really pretty in shades of blue/grey/cream and looks great with jeans. Amongst other treasures she gave me One Skein by Leigh Radford which I have been devouring!

Baby is growing nicely, at my dating scan they put me 6 days ahead than my dates. I'm not changing my dates though. They calculate the baby's age (should that be babies or babys') byt measuring the head and my babies tend to have quite big heads! Here's the scan photo taken about 3 weeks ago... I'll get a tummy photo later as my camera batteries have gone flat.

MaryAnnLucy tagged me with the 7 random things about me meme so here they are...
1 - Even just thinking about my nose being touched makes it tingle and hurt.
2- I can't get to sleep if DH falls asleep before me...he makes too much noise!
3- My favourite icecream is pistachio but it's really hard to find nowadays.
4- I live in a chaotic mess, but can usually find important things. Apart from my driving license when I had a speeding fine.
5- I love to bake, cakes, scones, biscuits and bread all make me feel good.
6- My children always hover around me when I am trying to concentrate....Yep, Emilia is here right now!
7- I want to train as a primary school teacher.
I'm not going to tag anybody but if you haven't been tagged yet, then consider yourself well and truly it!
Take care, Ali x

Thar she blogs!

Great picture, I can even recognize the baby as a baby! In that position, though, it's pretty much impossible to tell if it's going to be a boy or a girl, isn't it?

Baking and cooking... yum. I'll be thinking scone thoughts the rest of the day!

Ultrasound pics always amaze me. Your bean looks lovely so far. Don't let them mess with your dates, they did with my mum's and I arrived a month late because they wouldn't induce her.

Hey, I WAS right with my guess!!!! Thank you for all the wonderful SP stuff. I remember what it was like when I was pregnant, I would have forgotten my head if it hadn't been attatched!!! BTW there wasn't a book or letter in the package, but not to worry :)

oh ha ha....I'm so with you about the sleeping before DH gets to sleep. B and I have yet to sort that problem out!! Lovely scan of my next grandchild! xx


it really amuses me that so many times the medical folk think they know better what date you are due than you do!


also for pistachio ice-cream you should check out any Asian grocery stores because it is really popular in Asian cuisine....
