A sad day

Tuesday, January 16, 2007

Let me just preface this blog entry by saying we are all fine. I'm doing great (although a little hot and uncomfortable and a few of my clothes are starting to get a bit tight!) Andrew is great - he still has a week and a half left of school holidays and is in full blown relaxed mode. And our little bub is healthy and hopefully happy swimming around.

The sad day is that I've had to move all my scrapping stuff off my desk and into a new storage cupboard. The room which I initally called my scrapbook room will eventually become the baby's room so all my scrap stuff has to be moved. So I no longer have my own room. I no longer even have my own scrapbooking table. Even though there is still awhile until this bub makes an appearance, I wanted to do it now before I got too fat and uncomfortable and I didn't want Andrew to have to deal with all my scrap crap.

So from now on I will be a kitchen table scrapper. My storage unit thingy is on wheels so I can wheel it from the office to the kitchen table with no problems. It's actually very cool and I'm totally stoked to have fitted everything in. Love IKEA for storage solutions.

So although it's sad that I'm losing my scrap space, it's exciting to have it all in a new place and also exciting that the reason for the loss of my scrap space is a baby.

Onto another topic, my word for 2007. My fav scrapper Ali Edwards posted a challenge on her blog a couple of weeks back to have one word that describes what this year will be for you - a challenge to ourselves. If you want to read about it, click on the link in my sidebar and scroll down her blog a bit. So my word for 2007 is ENJOY. I want to really enjoy life and the things it has to offer. I want to enjoy being pregnant. I want to enjoy the next six months of our family just being Andrew & I. I want to enjoy scrapbooking. I want to enjoy work. I want to enjoy life

So here's to enjoying things.

5 things I am grateful for today
1. A funky new scrapbooking trolley
2. The opportunity to hang out with scrapping friends on Sunday
3. Dinner and a movie with Andrew tonight
4. My lovely hubby for buying me Greys Anatomy Season 2 on DVD
5. That Andrew still has a week and a half left of holidays - love the relaxed Andrew!

Till next time

Happy New Year, 2 dogs and the first photos

Tuesday, January 02, 2007

First of all Happy New Year to all of you that stumble across this blog every now and then.

We had a great time on NYE at Pete and Marina's house, hanging out with a group of friends, eating lots, having some laughs and chatting. We watched the fireworks on Ch 10 and then scooted home as I was well and truly stuffed.

We are now the proud adopted parents of Patch and Ali (Patch is on the left, Ali is on the right)They are staying with us for 2 years while their family is living in the city for a couple of years, training to become Salvation Army officers. They are the cutest dogs and have been fun to have around already. There is something about an excited, slobbery face looking at you through the back window, that makes your heart melt!

We had our first ultrasound today. I was so nervous - worried there would actually be no baby in there or something!! But there is and everything is great. It was so amazing to see the ultrasound and hear the heartbeat and then realise that it was our baby we were watching and hearing! Makes it all the more real now.

Andrew has gone snorkelling this afternoon with some mates and won't be back till later tonight so I'm off to do a quick tidy of the house and then see if I can get some scrapping happening. Mojo has been gone lately but I'm feeling it coming back so we'll see what I can get done!

5 things I am grateful for today
1. A new year full of exciting possibilities
2. That our baby is healthy and everything is in the right places
3. That I still have 1 1/2 days of holidays left
4. That i haven't put any weight on with the pregnancy yet!!
5. For a free afternoon to scrapbook

Till next time
