Bring on the Weekend

Well this weekend saw me not doing a great deal of anything productive although I must say I had a very Asian inspired weekend.

This all started with Take-away chinese on Friday night for me and Jamie as we watched a bit of Masterchef (am totally loving that show). Then for lunch the next day was leftover Chinese.

Sat arvo I decided to bake the Scones I saw on masterchef, date and lemon scones. Kim and Cass came over for a spot of scrapping about 3ish in the afternoon and we proceeded to each a few too many scones with a cups of Tea (and I wonder why Jamie calls us nanna's). For dinner we ordered a reasonably health delivery of Thai food. There was (well for me anyway) a lot more chatting than scrapping, but who cares it was good to just chill out and relax. The scones were a hit and they will be making an appearance in the family or favourite recipe book I am making.

Sunday we headed up to Sydney to catch up with Adam and Checka some friends of ours and we went to Yum Cha at Blacktown, it was delicious as always and I rolled out of there feeling VERY full.

On the way home we had to pick up Jamie's sister Ria who had been at the Pink Concert the night before and had stayed in the city with friends. She got a lift back to Campbelltown so we picked her up from there and headed over to mum's for a quick visit and a spot of afternoon tea (more eating) before heading back down the coast to drop Ria off and then home. It was quite an exhausting day and I headed for bed about 9.30 and proceeded to snore the house down (aparently).

I must say though my throat was a little sore this morning so perhaps he was telling the truth.

Well all I can say for my fellow scrapbookers at Camp this coming weekend is SORRY. If you wonder why there are earplugs on your pillow, take my word for it you are going to need them.

Long time no Post

Well everyone it has been months since my last post on here and so much has happened. Well my pregnancy is progressing well I am 23.5 weeks. I could have sworn I was 24 or 25, but just counted it on the calendar and definitely 23.5 weeks. I have had a couple of scans and all is well. Peanut (as it is fondly known) is healthy and the right weight, length etc.

I have been sooo busy at work I didn't have time for morning sickness, and thankfully was only a little nauseaus and as long as I ate regularly I was pretty good. It was a weird feeling, not feeling 100% but not sick enough to stay home, doh.

I have also listed my business for Sale, I am feeling that I won't be able to give it 100% when I have a baby and that is not what I am about. I don't want to neglect clients and in my industry this is some people's biggest decision, so I don't want to let them down. I have had quite a bit of interest in the business and I am confident that I will sell it soon. I am happy to work for the new owner on a part time basis which I think I can fit around being a mother, I just don't want the sole responsiblity of being the owner.

Anyway back to the baby, we have painted the nursery, set up the furniture, got new blinds installed and I am currently working on my baby shower list. I don't really have a clue what I need however my ever helpful friends I am sure will guide me to add and cross things off the list to fine tune it.

Mum has offered to take me shopping to buy whatever I need and I suggested we wait until after the baby shower to see what I didn't get.
As for scrapbooking well I finished 110 pages filling 2 Honeymoon ablums so that is a massive achievement. Feel free to have a look if you are at my place but I won't be dragging it around to crops with me. lol.
Well that's about it from me for today. I promise I will update more regularly.

Peanut says Hi-5.
