down down down


Is it ironic that the baby is moving in that direction and that's how I have been feeling?

There was a false alarm on Monday, when I thought it could be the start of labour but actually it was the baby engaging it's head - painful.

I think I feel a bit let down after the possible excitement of the baby coming, in combination with just feeling fed up and so, so, so, so tired (as well as being sick again).

I have forgotten what my feet look like

That's the end of my little rant for now and I will focus instead on the kidlets that are already here.

I'm going to try and promise this is the last time you'll see decorations we've made but I might have said that before and it is fun and passes the time so we could make more yet!



Together we used our old friend, paper! Actually I got my daughter to draw on some card, cut out bird shapes with a hole and then used some pretty origami paper I had to fold into 'wings' (any paper will do though). I taped the wings together at the top and threaded some twine through a hole at the top of the bird. An easy, quick project!


After seeing this great tutorial at Blonde Design I had to make some stars. Sadly I'm lacking in Liberty prints but I like the mix of scraps I used. I will be giving these as little gifts.





To get some perspective and cheer myself up I have been reading my favourite book. After all tomorrow is another day.

  2. Oh those last days are the toughest! I hope that they fly by for you with the busy-ness of Christmas and fun time with your kidlets.

    Loving those little stars! I think my tree might need some!

  3. That last part is tough. Tired all the time but can't get comfy, needing to rest but a little one/s to entertain. Whatever happens I hope all is well and you have a lovely Christmas.

  12. Oh my goodness you sound fed up. If it helps, I haven seen my feet for the last year either ;-)

  13. I think all the Mummy's reading will be able to relate - we've all been there at the end at the fed up stage. Just remember to breathe and try and make the most of this time. Life will change and get busier soon enough. Might as well enjoy the peace while you have it ;)

  15. Those final weeks are always the most difficult. Loved the picture of looking down the mountain from the peak.

    The stars and birds are darling. The kidlets did a great job.

  16. oh, those false alarms can be so disapointing! My 3rd kept me running back and forth to the hospital before he made his grand entrance. I hope the next time is for real for you - and when your sweet little one arrives say 'welcome' for me! :)

  17. I hope you have that baby soon, and can have some fun in the meantime. You have been very busy, the book is a great idea.

  18. Those decorations you've made are wonderful, I do so love the birds. That's something my daughter would love to make.
    I remember all too well those last heavy days of pregnancy. Not much fun.

  20. Love the belly picture! The last few weeks are always the hardest, but it will all be worth it!

  21. The waiting at the end is the hardest bit. Hope you don't have much longer! And very pretty decorations - birds and stars.

  22. Oh wow, there is a lot going on Christnas, tiredness, baby hormones, big changes, no wonder you're struggling, try to relax a bit, and i hope you bounce back a bit! :)
