This is a place for me to record my thoughts on things as they happen. I aim to write a new entry every weekday. This probably wont happen though.


Thank you card

The Thank you card I made for my Mum to say thanks for everything she's done for me while I've been pregnant. I posted it today and can't wait to get the phone call that says she's recieved it!


Start of the nursery

This is to show you just how small the nursery is. This was after quite a lot of work to paint it and put down a laminate floor. C's decided to never, ever, ever do a laminate floor again after this!


The move

I think I'm all set for the move now. I may tweak the template a little more but I'm pretty happy with things over at So this will probably be the last post here!


First parent class

We had our first parent class last night. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, most of the people were my age, I certainly wasn't the oldest there. We had a chat with another couple and I'm hoping to get to know some of the others better next time. We're all due about the same time (obviously) so I couldn't help but compare bumps, mine definitely isn't the biggest! We talked about our hopes and fears, and the fact it would hurt but many, many women go on to have more than 1 so it can't be all that bad - I pointed out I was a only child :) I'm looking forward to next weeks class but I hope we cover stuff that's more useful. The big question I have at the moment is baby bedding... what do they need? I've got lots of fitted sheets but not much else so far.
