I love walking into my bathroom and seeing these roses from our front garden.
Father in law had pruned them a while ago and now they are coming back so beautifully.
They were just from Bunnings and I think I picked a good variety.
There's an exquisite yellow one with red along the edges. It's actually fallen over in the vase but I have since taped it back up. It also has the sweetest perfume.
So there I am with my almost 33wk belly and counting down the weeks.
Soon I hope to count down days and pull out the winter gear for this baby.
I've never had a winter baby before so it will definately be one of my many challenges.
I still can't believe I am carrying a baby again and everyone says they forget I am pregnant. I guess they are use to me just getting through each day as though it were a breeze. Truly, I tell you, it is not.
I'm better at planning though so when some of the kids are asleep (esp. the youngest) I can pull out the mop and clean my kitchen and bathroom. When they're awake I can vacumn even though they can't hear the t.v for a while. I've culled down lots of toys in the lounge so there is less tidying up. I try to fold in my laundry and put it away the same day or next morning.
I am looking forward to being at stay at home mum full-time again although I am aware of the sleepless nights soon to come (not that I get un-interrupted sleep!) I am .going to rely on a weekly milk and bread delivery from Aussie Farmers Direct so I don't have to worry about starving my children. I am going to take each day as I can and get help from able and single sisters!!! There's nothing like accepting help even if it is a little. A little goes a long way.
I have been sewing in between my busy days. Friends ask me where do I get time? I MAKE time. There is always time in the day to sew or craft. If you have time to go to the toilet you have time to sew/craft/create. It might be the same amount of time but there is time. For me anyway.
I did end up making these flat front pants using the MADE tutorial.
They fit my 3yr old perfectly and came in handy over the Palm Sunday weekend when I had no pants for him to wear. I might even try and squeeze in another pair for the Easter weekend but not sure on the fabric to use. The linen looks lovely but I don't have any with me at the moment.
There he is trying to sing on the mic at the birthday and gave us all a laugh.
You gotta love boys and I am truly looking forward to little baby boy cuddles come June.
I've also sewed up some quick cushions but haven't got around to photographing them.
One is a really cute bambi one with a button closure at the back. Seriously I don't enjoy doing zippers on cushions cos I always muck it up somehow.
Anyway, back to the hum dum of kids, working and looking forward to easter treats!
Hope you're enjoying your time too.
