I feel like this little place here has not been very honest.
There are a lot of things that I have not been sharing , the truth is it has not been easy for us recently.
Money is tight , (Isn’t it always? For everyone? It’s not just us, is it?) and noone is sleeping much these days.
I’m up most nights till Boo falls asleep, and Anthony gets up early with Emily & then he works downstairs while Emily plays, and Boo and me, we get to sleep on. I nap so much now, too.
It takes most of my energy just to stay awake during the day.
I know my body is doing what it needs to to get that sweet baby of ours to grow,grow,grow, but I am struggling.
The weather helps, it’s good for everyone to just explore all day, to just get out there, dig, plant something, pick something, get messy.
Soya chocolate milk popsicles are brilliant. They keep me going. Or, us, really.
I love this picture of Emily , she looks like a lion.
The baby, swimming happily inside me, we’re not so sure about the name anymore.
I still think he’s a girl, but he isn’t, we’ve seen that. It’s just one of those things. We’ll wait till he is here & then decide. Is it really up to us to decide? My friend Sarah, she is very much how you’d imagine a Sarah. I wonder if her parents knew she would be this way, or if she is the way she is because of her name.
We have been doing a lot of gardening, it’s so good to be outside again, I love our garden. I love all our little water features.
The tiny waterfall was quite dirty , so we tried to clean it. Turns out that was a bad idea,
it’s been foaming for days! At least it smells great now, of peaches.
We’ve been washing the foam away every morning now and it’s a lot of fun.
I think when it’s all gone we’ll miss it. Maybe we will need to clean it again.
There are so many things that still need doing, I feel that our Baby is on his way, that we are so close to meeting him, and I need to go to the library soon, before I can’t carry the books home anymore.
And I need to get some pictures printed, but I can probably find some place online that sends them to us.
That would be neat.
Sometimes it’s really difficult not to have a car, but then I’d feel really ridiculous driving to the library.
At least I think I would.
Our whole house smells of clary sage & rosemary.
Some people think clary sage stinks, but I really love the smell. I honestly do.
This post is all over the place, but I really
wanted needed to share this with you. This blog is about our journey, our life, and if I’m sharing the up’s I really should be sharing the down’s.
