I'm ba-ack!

Well, a whole month has passed and I don't have terribly much to write!

We moved, of course. The house is more wonderful than I ever thought we would have! It is so spacious and feels so UN-cluttered! You see, where we lived previously, it didn't matter how clean it was, it always looked cluttered and messy!

I have the best invention in the world here aswell - a dishwasher! OMG! If you dont have one - get one! LOL! It makes life so much easier and I find cleaning up is not so much of a chore as I don't have to worry about the dirty dishes in the sink!

Sorry for the lack of photos - I have yet to take any! I know, what a bad scrapper I am! LOL!

All my scrapping stuff is still packed in boxes. Thats ok though, I am still not in the mood to scrap. I am enjoying sewing and I have made Kate a cushion cover, although I have to unpick some and redo as the material pulled. Oh well! Here is a photo of my first cushion cover I made though.

Gosh, it has been so long since I posted, I am beginning to forget some of the things we have done in the last month!

Kate recieved her Silver Award at school. She loves school! A couple of times we have used the 'kiss and drop zone' and I tell you, it is heartbreaking! Even DH said he didn't like using it. She liked it though. She felt grown up to be able to sit in the front seat of the car and open the car door herself. Needless to say, we have been on time since then as we both hated using it!

Luke is, well, Luke. He is really into guns and shooting things. He lies on top of the mailbox and snipes cars and people that go past with his pretend gun. He makes guns out of everything! He will find two sticks lying on the ground and somehow he will turn them into guns?!

I am 22 weeks pregnant now, or 5 months. I have a bump! It is exciting! The baby is quite active and I love feeling her move around! That's right, I forgot to tell you all that I had an ultrasound and the baby is a girl! I will be going through the Birthing Centre at the hospital this time as I am very low risk. Which means though, no assisted deliveries. Damn, I was going to waltz in there and ask for an epidural. In this day and age, childbirth should be painless, right? Oh well. I guess a little bit of pain is worth what you get at the end of it!

I have been reading a bit lately too. I read Angela's Ashes. Quite an interesting book and I love the way it was written. So conversational and easy flowing. After that I read Bad Ground, the book on the Beaconsfield Mine rescue. That was interesting, and a bit heart wrenching and I admit, I cried, hmmm, actually I cried reading both books. Gosh I am a sook at the moment! LOL! I go through phases with books, I will read like 3 or 4 in one go and then I wont read for 4 months. I guess it is the same with most hobbies. It is good to have a break every now and then.

Well, I guess I better get going. I want to re-paint my nails. This rainy weather is perfect for it! I love rain. Bring it on I say (just not in the form of storms!).

Thanks for stopping by! :)
