Splodge blanket update.
So I put a call out to friends and family a month or so ago for people to knit 6x6 inch squares to put together in a blanket for splodge for when he / she arrives. I loved the idea of it being made up of the efforts of all the awesome people in our life (it’s those soppy pregnant hormones obviously!!)
I’m not dissapointed though as I love how its turning out, there’s more to add and more squares to come in yet but I’m so pleased with how its looking…..
Yes not many of the squares (if any!) are 6x6 but I really think that adds to the uniqueness of it.
It’s a public holiday here in the UK and although it was it’s usual pants weather and rained, we headed out and about to manchester aviation park to get our geek on and look at some planes!!
I won’t pretend that I remembered them all but it was actually a great day. Defo recommend if anyone has people in their family who like a good aeroplane ✈ ;-)
Belly comparison with poppa bear on Saturday night!!
My rents hosted a dinner night with so many different dishes…. Think chilli, curry, tagine, meatballs…..Nom nom nom. I did well to last most of the night with scummy food, good drinks and lovely company. By the time I got home though I was waddling brave and pooped!!
3 weeks and counting… Eek!
Today is payday and barr the mortgage we are now 100% debt free. No loans, credit cards, car payments, finance or anything else outstanding.
On the one hand I’m cross with ourselves for not doing it sooner as it goes to show what 8 months of hard work can do but we got there and also still got everything we needed for splodge in the meantime.
Today is a good day!!
Ok so I’ve been pretty quiet recently because….well to be honest my life is pretty much baby orientated right now and I’ve noticed that baby posts drops followers like nothing else.
However this blog is my life and splodge is pretty much dominating my life right now. So sod it!!
Ok, let’s summarise:
The good: my friend threw me an amazing baby shower where both splodge and I got spoiled rotten!! An ace day spent with fabulous ladies. It’s not really a big thing here in the UK so it was really just an excuse for a girlie lunch but it was fab.
The bad: I’m now tired, moody and in pain most of the time as spd has hit me. Fun times!! However only 3.5 weeks to go until due date so it’s the home straight. Almost there!!
So this is about to happen……another 100g and I’ll hit triple digit kg. Sad times!
That’s a 22kg gain throughout this pregnancy but I’m reminding myself that this is temporary and come October once splodge is here and settled, I’m back on it with a vengeance!!
However there is still 5 weeks to go…. I dread to think what that final number will be…. Eek!!
