Excitement is growing by the day (it really is!) of our new arrival. We have Granny & Pop arriving in just over 2 weeks (WAHOOOO!!) and then anytime after their arrival baby is allowed to come.
This has been one of the quickest pregnancies I've had, probably because I haven't had time to stop and think. It's busy (and admittedly rather hard work) running around after two active, cheeky, hilarious, challenging boys. It's always a moment of celebration for everyone when Austin comes home from work to lend a helping hand - it's all I can do not to retreat into our bedroom and let him deal with dinner clean-up, baths, books and bed...
Anyway, onto the GEMS!
:: The generosity of friends... has absolutely blown me away! Check it:
- Generosity No.1: one designer bag GIVEN to me by a dear friend who bidded ferociously to win this item at a charity auction we had for our church's women's conference. Retails at £285. A M A Z I N G.
- Generosity No.2: my husband arrived home from work yesterday with a 'present' for me...
:: This cool little dude... who manages to keep his sunglasses on, come what may. I think he knows he looks pretty cool with them on.
:: Homemade marmalade...
:: Loving that it's summer PJ time... especially when those summer pj's are in the style of a french wrestling onesie. Too blimmin' cute!
Yes, a slight graze on his forehead - that's what happens when one face-plants the concrete :(
:: The Crochet squares pile for the baby blanket is growing... only have 8 more to do and then I can start joining them all up. I've got good feelings about this project, think it'll be a goodie!
:: Royal Wedding Fever... it sure is rather incredible being in London at the same time as a royal wedding. Loving the countless forms of memorabilia on offer, but mostly, just the wonderful Britishness that is on display.
Regent Street is spectacular with hundreds of flags hung above the street.
Thought I'd throw in a pregnancy shot for you
And today a young lady married her prince. Just lovely.
I felt myself getting all teary when the Queen did her drive-by before the ceremony. Blame it on the pregnancy hormones...(?) but I thought it was so great to hear the crowd of thousands cheering for their Queen. YAY!! Wishing I could have made it into town for the very grand occasion but it just wasn't going to happen today... so we settled for streaming it on the net which was almost just as good. We all sat on our bed and watched the goings-on, the boys getting very excited about the police motorbikes that went before and after the royal cars...
