Hey x

Just a little update for you all as i dont seem to be able to summon the strength for a full post!

Bump is growing, bigger and bigger with every passing week, my mum took this picture for me the other day, and, as i have hardly any photos of myself pregnant with the girls coupled with the fact that i think this will probably be my last baby im trying not to be too vain, and just enjoy the moment (although i confess when i saw this picture i said 'oh my god im HUGE!)

This is a kind of everyday look for me, my old faithful Next riding boots, very excited that im finally replacing these this week, hurrah!
..In case you were wondering about the rest of my outfit; Pink bobble necklace from Joules, non-maternity-live-in-it staple white shirt-Next...non-maternity tank-primark-LOVE the colour...Non-maternity,New, cable knit leggings-new look...Chunky ring accessorize(i think).

Moving on, i keep staring at my mantlepiece this week, just-enjoying it. Its crammed full(not normally a 'look' i go in for) and it makes me smile as it reminds me of my girls.

Can you see the stunning hyacinths? They smell beautiful and im so pleased with how 'full'they are, you know, with hyacinths, as they start to come out, they can look a bit ropey, and you think, bugger, i shouldn't have bought 50p bulbs?!...

Alson on the mantle i have this beautiful card from my Ruby, made for me at lunchtime art club. Poppy is my arty girl so Ruby surprised me with this and i was stunned at how much work she had put in...and next to it-the bottle dolly! Adorable isnt she?

My card read 'To Mummy, yoo are a byootiful mum-love Ruby'...bless her little soul

She went food shopping with daddy on sunday and he let her choose a gift for me. She chose the purple ppp(pretty potted primula)you see there in the background, she knows me so well!
I found this candle sorting out the babys room and ive been burning it all week, doesnt really smell, its just nice to look at.
As is this little photo, my girls...

The Tete-a-Tete are blooming now...pretty, pretty,

And blue Hyacinths in the bathroom!

Hope you are all well, i will catch up again soon..i promise xxxx

A lovely homely post. Lots of nice warming memories for you to look back on via your blog and your picture albums. You have definitely spurred me on to get some spring bulbs for the house - yours are beautiful! :)

I think you look great. I loved every minute of being pregnant. The anticipation is so exciting. Your cards and little gifts are priceless.

you look so beautiful in your piccys- i gained so much weight during my pregnancy as i was stuck in bed for most of it...i had morning ,noon and night sickness i used to laugh that it was called morning sickness hehehe ;0)
its lovely to keep these memories of yourself especially as you say it might be your last baby.
your girlies are soooo sweet, just like their mummy. And that card so precious and pretty.
I bought two sets of 6 hyasinths and one set grew lovely but the other went very tall and ropey.

best wishes , put your feet up if you can ;0)xxxx

You are absolutely adorable - I wish I had been as cute a "preggo" as you! What a fun time in life and all the blessings that come along with having little feet running around and laughter ringing from the walls! Enjoy! It looks like you are! That bump will be here soon! And then you will REALLY be busy for a bit! Thanks for the sweet post - made me smile and remember my babies - I have grandbabies now and they are really just as nice! :-)
