Simplified and Overwhelmed

4 weeks to go.

I'm finished with work for now, so that's a major weight off. I was just too uncomfortable sitting at my desk all day and I've got ANOTHER sinus infection, that's entering it's fourth week. So I'm completely over this being pregnant thing.

Boo's talking about when bub arrives now, which is really lovely. He's completely gone into mother hen mode with me being sick. As soon as I start coughing, he's there patting me, telling daddy that mummy needs to go to the hospital. Here he is having a belly moment....

Even though I've finished work, it's still going to be a super busy time for us, even without the arrival of Boo2. We gave our tenants notice a few weeks ago, so that had till mid-Feb to move out....well, they'll be out today!! All of a sudden my relaxing pre-Christmas is going to involve a couple of trips up to the house to meet with trades people and organise quotes, so we can get work started ASAP.

Guess this might mean a new direction for some blogging, lots of before and afters of the rooms....I've got all these ideas in my head, it'll be interesting to see if I can make them work. Outside needs a lot of work, but we'll be tackling that as we'll give me some blog-fodder anyway! Again grand plans for the gardens, I want lush and green, but not tropical, if that makes sense? Also, I'm hell bent on growing lots of edible things....let's hope I can remember some of what I learnt in my uni days.

I've managed to fit in some crafting. The craft group I'm a part of had a lil Christmas gathering and ornament swap last weekend and I managed to whip this up....

I love how my lil gingerbread bread house turned out. My nieces loved it too, so I have the job of making 5 more before this weekend, when we get together for the family Christmas....I'll be stitching like a mad woman, in between hospital appointments, last scans, meetings with tradies AND maybe some packing....but that's just another stress I really don't want to think about right now.

I can't wait to see the before and after reno shots!

I thought I would do before and progress reno blogs too - but time got away and my dormant blog remains dormant... poor thing. Hope you're better at it than me!
