My niece in Australia had her baby last night, a wee boy. All is well... I'm still waiting to find out his weight and name and how his MUMMY is doing after her C-section. But so relieved it's all over for her now and she can focus on her new baby.
As for Bex... she's due today. Not counting any chickens though, she's dicking around with Braxton Hicks contractions still. Baby boy Harvey will come when he's good and ready.
This morning I'm off to Ardmore to our new Patchwork class venue. It's right beside Ardmore airport! I mean you can watch the planes take off and land only 300 metres from the sewing room!
I hope it's a nice warm room... cos it's getting much colder now.
I've cut out another block to work on this morning, it's got heaps of little triangles... so lots of careful matching will be going on.
Oh what fun. It's a challenge and I love that.
I had my one 'evil' meal for the week last night... KFC. It was so nice. Now it's back on track and focus on doing well all week... and hope for another good loss next wednesday. I can do this!
It's freakin' MAY already!!!
Baby news: My niece's baby was expected to be a tiny 5 pound baby, he wasn't. He was 7.4 pounds and they have named him Charlie. I love it!
Home front: no pain... no baby.
It will happen....
Patchwork class was wonderful. The rooms we used were lovely and warm, we had a kitchen and bathroom right there too.
ABOVE: even the kitchen benches are perfect for cutting out on. And we can use the facilities for making our morning tea too. It's perfect!
ABOVE: looking in from the doorway.
ABOVE: to the left of the doorway is this little lounging area, with a tv even. Perfect if I ever have to take one of the kids, or for anyone's hubby who tags along. Today two of the ladies husbands stayed and had a wander around the airfield.
ABOVE: the view from the front door... that red line I've drawn in is the airstrip, that's how close it is. There were a few small planes taking off and landing while we were there.
ABOVE: One of the husbands taking in the view and enjoying the sunshine while drinking a coffee.
ABOVE: The block I made today... see... I did actually DO something today! I also cut out the next block, which is the same pattern, just in different colours.
Home now, and Bex is still in one piece, not in pain (dammit)... so I shall go and watch some TV myself until I feel the urge to do something else.
End of Day: a lovely chillax afternoon. Got to see a couple of photos of wee Charlie on his Dad's Facebook ... he's darling! Makes me so clucky and now I simply can't wait for our wee man to be born.
Cuddles with newborns are just so SPECIAL.
