one more sleep to go!

Wednesday, 24 December 2008
till Christmas that is, because I am pretty sure it's going to be a few more sleeps until this baby makes it's way into the world. I saw my doctor this morning and the baby is still at 3/5 position, we are both healthy and fine but it's more than likely a little bit longer before we make our acquaintence on the OUTSIDE!!!!!

I swear I haven't been posting due to lack of interesting activity around here, not to keep you all in suspense LOL. I did make these cute artwork for the baby's room - I couldn't bear to cut up sewing pattern envelopes so I scanned a few child ones, cut them out and stuck them on brown paper with a fabric covered mat and voila, I think they're pretty cute:

I braved our local Westfield shopping centre yesterday to get some last minute bits and bobs, and very cleverly caught the bus so I just skipped (alright, waddled) past all the people waiting in their cars to get into the carpark, let alone find a parking space. It's only about 15 minutes to the shopping centre so I figured I'd be safe if anything started happening, and besides I had to get out of the house because the builders were making so much noise excavating the backyard to put drainage lines in (plus listening to their stupid swear word filled yelled conversations was getting annoying too). And then the builders had the hide to be really proud of 'all' the work they had done, and I was like it's only 3pm, you haven't even finished you've got nothing to be proud of, especially when there's a big drainage grate in the middle of my yard (which I'm not happy about):

Alright ranting over, it's christmas eve and we should be sharing love and good will around, but personally I've always been a bit of bah humbug person but maybe this will change when I'm a mum. Time to get a few last minute christmas things sewn up today, maybe baking some more of these fabulous chocolate and mint cookies that Jean shared the recipe over at her blog - Jean I'm blaming you for at least a few kilos of my whopping weight gain this pregnancy! The doctor weighed me for the first time this pregnancy and I've put on nearly 20kgs eeek (yes mum you were right, I should have been more careful in what I've been eating...)

Speaking of which, thanks Elizabethe for valiantly defending my preggers body shape, but I thought mooimadeit's comment rather funny - I do feel absolutely huge (but thankfully no twins) and these days I am more likely to be slothing on the lounge than standing around being productive.

In other good news - Oscar the sooky dog is much better now but he did get quite sick because his ear got a little infected and he had to spend the day at the vets under sedation while they did a little work on him, but for all his troubles he's going to get a bath later today because he's a little whiffy.

And in even better news for Sydneysiders and online fabric shoppaholics - the Tessuti store is starting it's sale on 27 Dec - yay Collette! Although I bet this little monkey will choose that day to come on out and deprive me of fabric goodness.......

Finally, I promise to let y'all (sorry I've been watching too much Dr Phil lately) know when bub has arrived - I will try and coach husband in the ways of blogging!

Merry christmas everyone!


  1. Merry Christmas Kristy! And the baby will be forever grateful if not born on Christmas day. No fun sharing.

  2. Merry Christmas to you Kristy and baby bub! Though, I'm putting my money on New Year's Eve now...maybe the very first baby of the year!!!! :)

  3. Merry Christmas! Here's to having the baby with an absolute quickness :)

  4. Hey, if it Christmas Day, he/she will share my birthday! Enjoy these last few days and sleep as much as possible. Love the artwork!

  5. Peace to you, Kristy!

    I'd be pretty bah humbug about a grate in my backyard, too.


  6. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
    Don't worry too much about the excavating, etc... though I know it is easier said than done, especially from the other end of the world :-).
    Wonder when that baby will decide to come.

  7. Merry Christmas and greetings to the little holiday babe sure to make his/her debut soon! Remember, sleep when the baby sleeps.

  8. Kristy - Merry Christmas to you and yours!
    HATE THE GRATE!!! They need to move it, but on the otherhand, it should be easy to disquise with plantings.
    I know the humbug feeling - but now that I have two little grandson's running around, Christmas has a bit more meaning and FUN! And exhaustion too, but that is just part of it all.
    Enjoy your last peaceful days and nights.

  9. The pictures are just precious- that was a great idea. I am sending good Christmas wishes and hope the baby will soon be here and you have an easy delivery and the slow builders get faster. mssewcrazy

  10. Merry Christmas - love the pictures!

  11. May you and your family celebrate a joyous Holiday season. I know you can't wait for the baby, hope everything is well with the construction and that they are done soon. Merry Christmas - from Philadelphia!

  12. I left hospital after my first was born 8 kg lighter than when I went in. don't worry, that weight is there to make your baby big and strong! The pix are really cute, and the grate won't grate so much when there is paving or plants or something and it isn't so obvious. hang in there!!

  13. Hi Kristy
    Hope you are well. I'm just checking in to see if there's any news yet. Guess not!!
