pregnancy at 29 weeks

Hello feet my old friends.  I can just about still see you.

How has your week been?  Mine has been tough.  I've been busy and all I've really wanted to do is sit on the sofa, watching Khloe and Lamar and eating Hula Hoops.

The baby is getting heavier and heavier and I just can't get comfortable anywhere.  I can feel my whole body slumping as the day goes on so that by evening time when I'm cooking dinner my back is aching and I'm a big old bag of grump!  Poor me.

On the plus side though I love this dress and it's not even maternity, hurrah.  It's from Dorothy Perkins and is just a bog standard stripey vest dress that I got one size bigger than usual and ta dah, instant pregnancy chic.

I went out yesterday and for the first time I went a bit baby shopping crazy, I felt the world shrink around me as I zoned into this feverish buzz and, well, yeah, I admit it, I sort of went a bit doolally. More of that another time but essentially I went out to buy a pram and did manage to achieve that goal without getting too distracted.

I've also been busy making my first ever roman blind - bit of an experience but I'm almost done after a few scratchy head moments (well, more than a few actually). I'm using this awesome fabric which just makes me swoon every time I see it. 

The blind is for the bathroom and if I'm successful (which I hope I will be) then I'm off to Ikea next week to buy some more fabric to make the blackout blind for the baby's room. Very exciting, Ikea do really great fabric and I have a tendency to hoard the stuff - which is not good.

What is good is that I'm still walking Tilly every day, although I'm not sure if she appreciates it so much.  She's a bit hufty with me at the moment and keeps following me around and just lurking.

I took this picture and only afterwards did I realise Tilly was lurking behind me making my crazy big ass look even bigger!!

what's that behind my ass?!

 yeah, just lurking in the background, what's yer problem?

Haha she is SO not impressed with me at the moment.  Do you think she knows there is change afoot?

I've also been packing up our kitchen ready for it's demolition next week - well I'm hoping I have one more week of kitchen as the builders haven't tiled the new roof yet - but we are getting ready for weeks of cooking in the dining room and washing up in the bath!  Ick!

So that was me at 29 weeks, not really putting my feet up at all and dashing round like a loon.  Today though is different.  Today is for sitting and writing and crocheting, I'm even getting my groceries delivered, how cool is that. 

I hope you all have a very lovely weekend.  For all Blighty dwellers, I'm not going to even mention the weather!!!
