What to do in your last week of work

Read food blogs!!....and of course print off (in colour) every recipe that your addled pregnant brain thinks sounds a bit nommy!

I discovered this article in The Times....and that was the end of my day.

A couple of highlights:

Cannelle et Vanille, the photography is stunning.

Simply Recipes, as the name implies

Chez Pim, Boozy Bitter Chocolate Thruffles, say no more.

Smitten Kitchen, this is an old fav of mine

Matt Bites is also a bit cool.

This one was mentioned in the comments and has brilliantly simple recipes with everything photographed in detail....Noble Pig....I love it!

Oh....and the article's author also has a gorgeous design blog

So it's been a HUGELY productive day!

6 weeks to go....

Yep, niblet's due to make his appearance on the 29th I have a whole week and a bit left at the orifice and then 4 weeks of panic last minute shopping....and then just panic.

I've been meaning to post pics of all the dresses I made for the girl's for Christmas and of course Kiel's priate jumper....but you know how it is, this whole pregnancy lark seems to sap either motivation, energy or mental capacity....sometimes all three at the same time, so most nights are spent in front of foxtel, pointy sticks in hand, knitting away!

Friend's of ours had their first bub at the end of January, lil Alexander James and I DO have a pic of the lil cardi I made him, whipped it up in just a few nights it was a nice easy and very teeny tiny knit, so it wasn't such a stretch when it came to concentration.

Hopefully, once I'm not working anymore (now there's a thought I STILL can't get my head around), I'll get a bit more organised and take photos of everything and get blogging a bit more....and then the snorglet will arrive and I'll forget what freshly washed hair and sleep feel like.
