27 and reflective

I've been a bit quiet on here recently.  Weekends have been so busy and not relaxing at all so I'm hoping that will change soon.  I finish work next week I can't wait, I have so much planned! I'm determined to sort out all our photos and get them in albums, get baking and make something for the baby (I have a sewing machine and I'm determined to remember how it works!).

Recently we took a wander around a village near us, Stockbridge.  It was very nice, reminded of us of where we used to live and we enjoyed having a good potter around.

Other things we've been up to include going to the Baby Show in London and finally sorting out a pram - we've gone for the Mamas and Papas Urbo in bright lime green, we can't wait to hit the streets with the baby! As you can see I went a bit mad buying bibs, I guess you can never have too many! Last week I told the midwife about a niggle and she was very concerned and asked me to get checked out if it persisted.  I went to a nearby birthing centre a couple of days later to get checked out and they had us panicking and we had to get straight over to the hospital where I had quite the MOT!  All is fine though we finally found out the position of the baby, it's back to back so let the spinning exercises commence!

Today I've turned 27, check out my new jumper my Mum sent me in the post I love it just hope I don't stretch it!  I can't believe I'll have my first child at 27, I always said I would wait until I'm 30 and concentrate on work and making lots of money....oh how glad I am that my mindset changed to being poor and having a house full of love (in the words of Nicole Scherzinger you might need a burger to go with that cheese!?).


  1. Oh my - happy birthday for today...I love your new jumper.

    Here's keeping everything crossed for you though of course I understand you would probably want to do the opposite...when the time comes : )

    ps. I've just remembered - I was 27 (just to turn 28) when my eldest was born...he will be thirteen in March! N x

  2. Well, Happy Birthday!! It does sound like you're getting incredibly busy; I don't doubt that it is going to be getting incredibly hectic, with the baby and all! Your new jumper looks fantastic!
