Happy Belated Valentine's Day

Happy Belated Valentine's Day to you! I hope you all had a lovely day. I was greeted by a card yesterday morning (and anyone who knows my husband will know that is a major achievement!) and a slap up Chinese takeaway at night, complete with toddler who had conned his way out of bed under the pretence of being unwell, personally I think he was after my orange chicken :p

This year I made my husband a card, a layout and a little very simple framed project.

I have added more details and some more photos to the Craft Island blog. Also, the winner of the MME Selection Pack has been announced!

Let me know how you spent Valentine's Day, I'd love to hear all about it?!

10 Things in February

10 Things in February brings you... 10 random pregnancy things {you may or may not know} about me right now:
  1.  I am constantly thirsty.
  2.  Nothing. And I mean NOTHING quenshes my thirst. Water, milk, orange juice, Coke, lemonade, cranberry juice, apple juice, Tizer, limeade, cherryade, Appletise, Irn Bru, diet, full fat, caffeine free, with ice cubes, without - NOTHING!!
  3. I already have a huge bump but when you are under 5 foot tall that tends to happen. Nowhere. Else. To. Go. But. OUTWARDS.
  4. I have gone completely off chocolate although I refuse to be beaten and almost always eat a least a small piece of chocolate every day. Just in case the aversion has passed, you don't want to be wasting any valuable chocolate eating time!
  5. I can only brush my teeth with Collgate toothpaste. You can keep your Aquafresh.
  6. I can't stop brushing my teeth.
  7. The driver who crashed into the back of my car on Wednesday night is also pregnant. (I am absolutely fine - there cheers for my old jalopy and although the other driver had to go to hospital she and bump are also fine).
  8. I am hitting the shops tomorrow to buy my first pair of maternity jeans (for this pregnancy, obvs I had pregnancy jeans when I had Jack). 
  9. My next scan is on 28 March when we will find out the sex of the baby. We won't keep this a secret. We couldn't even if we wanted too!
  10. I am not looking forward to the sleepless nights. Zzzzzz
Every month, we blog ten things on the tenth.  Your ten things can be absolutely anything you feel like sharing.  Pop on over to Shimelle's blog and link to your specific blog post so we can all come read your own list of ten.

Was it something I ate?

Jack: Mummy, do you have a baby in your tummy?
Me: Yes, Jack.
Jack: Mummy, did you eat the baby?
Me: No, Jack.

Luckily he didn't take his line of questioning any further. I didn't have to answer any awkward questions on how the baby actually got into Mummy's tummy (this time).

This little one has been keeping me busy (aka dog tired and sick) for the last few weeks. I am 12 1/2 weeks pregnant and due on the 16 August 2012. He or she is very active and enjoyed a good wiggle during our scan yesterday. Boy or girl? We'll find out on 28 March!
