A fab weekend

This weekend was my big 3-0 and hubby and I decided not to venture too far from home but to have a couple of days in London.
We were both surprised and amazed at the view from our hotel window and decided to have room service instead of going to a restaurant.

We wandered around covent garden and spitalfields markets and the National Gallery but the weather was not in our favour and we headed home early.
My family all got together on Sunday for lunch and it was great to see everyone before the baby arrives.
Now the week starts and with only 3 weeks till my due date there is a huge amount to organise.

A rainbow on a winter's day

I received a rainbow in this morning's post and boy did it make me smile.

This colour pack is pulled together by Lucy at Attic24 and I love how all the colours go together. I normally struggle to pick out lots of colour to go together so this preselected pack of yarn is perfect.
I've had to hide it away until I get the baby's room finished otherwise nothing will get done :)

A new chapter

Today is my first day of maternity leave and I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. The dog has been walked, hubby trousers have been fixed, I am half way through my to-do list which is supposed to take a week...
I had planned on painting the nursery, but it is still full of stuff which needs moving and I am on strict instructions from hubby not to lift anything.

I think that for the rest of the day I will move my sewing machine downstairs and finally get some baby things made. It is now only 5 weeks until baby is due and so far it has nothing home-made by me which is just embarrassing although there are a lot of half finished projects.

More later....
