Still No Bambino!! AARRGHH

Oh well I made it to 41 weeks but I don't want to ruin my bump collage so I think I will just take a separate photo I am now 9 days overdue. There's not much to report at all at the moment apart from how big this baby might end up because of all the cakes and sweets I have been eating out of complete boredom. I can't even walk very far so not able to do much either and I am SICK of cleaning and nesting I have went crazy and cleaned so many times now. I keep making the place look all lovely for the baby then- no baby and I have to tidy again, it's pretty dull and frustrating. It's getting harder and harder now too because I have so little energy. This blog post is just a bit of a whinge really, I have made some new jewellery but not got photo's of them yet but since I haven't posted for a while I thought I should since people might think it's because things were actually happening. Oh one last moan- the weather here is getting worse with snow and it's maybe going to be hard to get to the hospital too, typical eh. Anyway today Frazer got some nice photo's of the snow in Edinburgh at least it looks nice...

Pregnancy Photos From Start To Finish

Here is my pregnancy photos from Start to (hopefully) finish!! (will I get to 41 weeks though? I hope not because I like the fact that both have 6 photo's in them. It's the Virgo in me, it's symmetric and equal) I can't believe I am posting these here for the world to see as some of them are really disgusting and unflattering, 38 weeks -YUCK, but I don't care THAT much to not post them. I think it will be interesting for people to see the body changes that happen and look at those stretch marks- some people are lucky and don't get them. Oh and also I forgot to take a 27 week photo. You can click on them to make them bigger but watch you don't get a fright!

Quirky Shop Mandalinarossa

Kitty Pink Stars (who has a very cute Etsy shop too) introduced me to this lovely little shop through her facebook, I adore it. The little alien type creatures in the product photo's look really good and just make me want to buy everything. Plus I love the knitted jumpers she does with robots etc (check sold items) they look old fashioned but up to date too, great stuff. Makes me wish I had a knitting machine. Go visit mandalinerossa on Etsy and don't forget to check out her website too.

Button Tree Necklace...

I hardly ever buy jewellery because I make it myself but my friend Carolyn made something I just had to have straight away, she owns the folksy shop Pirate Pixie's Treasure Trove and she made this beautiful unique necklace... A Button Tree Necklace.... which automatically my favourite necklace now. I love the little metal button charms it is so sweet. Isn't it just gorgeous?

Baby Room & Bathroom in Our New Flat

As some of you know we just moved flat, I am slowly getting rooms done one by one, today we are getting the boiler replaced then I can get on with the other rooms but here is the bathroom and most importantly the nursery and our room - we have a room for the baby when she gets older but we want to co-sleep so she is going to share with us to begin with. I realise it is probably quite boring for the majority of people but my mum, cousin and sister etc all live far away and wanted to see and instead of emails this is way easier plus I want a reminder myself of how it looked and so baby strawberry can see it one day when she is older. We have had so much help and support from so many people and not all of them are mentioned here only the things you can see, thank goodness for good friends and family...
(just click on the photo's to make them MMMAAASSSIIIVE)
