Spring is........

.... Well in our house it depends who you ask!!

Ask me and I will tell you that Spring is getting 3 loads of laundry (including bedding) dried on the washing lines. This to me is fabulous, I hate to dry washing inside or in the drier. There is nothing nicer than bedding that has been out on the line all day. Also the clothes etc are all so much easier to iron when they have been outside.


However, if you ask 11 month old puppy Bista, she will tell you that Spring is all about sleeping in the sun on the deck! On Saturday night after I got back from work she was sitting in a square of sunshine, on the back steps, with her face up to the sun/heat! So cute that I had to get a quick pic!

I am still here......

I have not gone anywhere and I have no news to share. I have simply lost the will to post pictures of myself in maternity clothing (the same 5 outfits to be exact). With 30 days left until the due date of the baby I have well and truly hit the wall.

I am very lucky in that I am still feeling very well, I am still out walking with the dog most days, I am still at work 4 days a week, I am still sleeping well most nights and all midwife appointments etc are showing that all is well. But, the baby is growing rapidly now and I am becoming uncomfortable. Also I have very swollen hands and feet (and some days face - nice) and that is just something that does not need to be photographed each day.

I am still from time to time taking pictures of what I am wearing, but I am working less and outfits are the same - so I really do not feel like posting them. I managed so long to make my own clothes work for me that I count myself as lucky. I can not imagine having felt like this earlier on!!

I am planning on finishing up with work in the next 2 or 3 weeks, but I still do not have an exact date in mind. I am not sure how much posting I will do in that time, but I will do my best to keep you all up to date with things. When I do finish up I am planning on taking at least 12 weeks off (no less than that, but hopefully quite a bit longer). I do hope to keep blogging on quite a regular basis - but I have never blogged from home so it is going to take a bit of getting used to with locations etc.

I am still lurking out there reading blogs too, but mainly I am not commenting as I am so jealous of the lovely fitted, belted and varied outfits (I will not even get started on the shoes) that you are all wearing. I am scared that I say something green eyed and not nice - its hormonal and I do not mean it!
