Happy birthday to me!

Hello everyone! Just popping on to say I’ve not forgotten about you! It’s my birthday today and we’ve had a lovely trip into town for a wander round the German market, lunch, and a trip to my favorite ice cream cafe Affogato. Seriously, if you’re in Edinburgh you have to go, it’s delicious 🙂 I had an incredible trio of sorbets: coconut, dark chocolate and chocolate orange (well, it is my birthday after all!) So I’ve got one happy tum 😀


Speaking of which I’m now 36 weeks pregnant if you can believe it?! It simultaneously feels like it’s taken ages to get to this point and yet has flashed passed. Weird, huh? Not long until we’ll have a new little person joining the family. I just wonder if he’ll be here in time for Christmas?

Anyway, my lovely husband is about to make my dinner, then hopefully young sir will go to bed and we can relax and have a lazy evening. Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend!

An extra special project!

So I’ve been holding out on you guys… I’ve been working on something extra specially special recently. Can you guess what it is?

Not my poncho pattern, although that is coming along, but… another baby! 😀


Yep, that’s not just cake and ice cream in there any more! Haha!

Do you remember the photos of the pencil skirt I made for Delia Creates? There was just a hint of a tum? Well this is what was causing it 🙂

I’m nearly 24 weeks now (due only days after Christmas!) so that third trimester is coming up fast. Which also means my wardrobe is getting smaller daily so you can expect some posts in the near future with my diy answer to a maternity wardrobe. It’s especially needed this time as baby is sitting so much lower than my first, so I’m already struggling to find trousers that do the double of staying up (nothing more annoying than having to permanently hitch up trousers that just want to sliiiiide down) and being comfortable. It’s just such a glamorous time! Or at least it will be once I sort myself out with some wardrobe staples to keep me going 😉

Anyway, I’ll keep you updated with my progress, both in crafting and baby growing!
