It's a...

Time flies, doesn’t it. If Sandi didn’t remind me that it’s been some couple of weeks since my last post, I wouldn’t have woken up from my slumber in la la land , Thank you Sandi , I have much to update about. The story is long as to why I haven’t updated, we have moved in to our new nest, my heart went a thumping a little when the settlement agents to the previous owners had lost the transfer papers somewhere in the mail. You see we bought the house from owners who lived overseas, so transfer papers were signed and being shipped across oceans. Of course it would have been very unlike Adla not to have gone a little panicky at the thought that “Oh no maybe the owners changed their minds and bla bla bla” You know those over reacting pessimistic thoughts girls like me have. After a 2 week delay from actual settlement , we finally got the papers sorted and became proud owners of our humble little abode. Didn’t need to panic after all. So we moved in, things are far from organized at this stage because I wear a t-shirt that reads "I can’t work too hard cause I’m preggers"

Well
to make matters worse, my dear dear hubby had to undergo surgery last week to remove a cyst. He has half of his right arm in a cast so there goes my very handy and only man I’ve been relying on. It’ll be another 6 weeks before he’ll be able to get back into action so for now the house is a shipwreck. Boxes , furniture most things in its wrong place. I try to see the brighter light in it all, that there shouldn’t be a rush to madly organize things around here but come on who am I kidding, my targeted dateline to spruce things around here is a month before the baby arrives, That should be sufficient! Talking about the baby, the pregnancy has been going ok. I do have a little trouble finding the right position sleeping as my body has just ballooned. I went for my fetal anatomy scan and found out the baby's gender. Well Chuga chuga...toot toot...

For those who guessed Boy, you are soooo correct. Well I had that gut feeling from the beginning but because everyone in my family has been having boys lately, secretly we all thought it was going to be a girl! So out with the floral and dancing ballerinas I had in mind . I’m still in love with duck blue and found a little more inspiration from the vintage red school chair above to accent the baby nursery with.So duck blue and red , thats the colour scheme out of the way. I’ve taken this time away from House cleaning to do some baby shopping , there are soo many cute things out there and everytime I wander around the shops I chuckle to myself and whisper not at how cute things are for babies. I don’t see other shoppers doing such, they must really think I'm a bit off! So far I’ve found the quilt that makes me happy, it’s a combination of patterned fabrics and nothing makes me more happy than that. I see spots and ginghams of sorts and have gone crazy shopping for the coordinates.

The next couple of weeks shall see my crafty hands doing some work for the nursery. In the meanwhile I hope everyone is keeping well and I Thank you for coming back and checking on me often. Do excuse my lack of blogging and remember that I wear a t-shirt that reads," I can't work too hard cause I'm preggers!".

Till my next episode,

Much Blogging Love,

Hi Adla,

No wonder you haven't had time to blog......too much happening. Hope hubby's arm heals real quick and he can get back moving those boxes and rearranging furniture so you can do you nesting.

Hooray for little boys...of course I don't have any so I am extra excited that you have a little man arriving soon. Love the colours for the nursery and look forward to seeing what magic you weave with those crafting hands.
Hugs,
Kerryanne
