So as I haven't blogged for a week I thought I'd do a post with some random bits and bobs in it about my week and what I've been doing recently. Time seems to be flying, I can't believe it's already the 8th of December and I haven't got my decorations up or done my shoppoing yet - I wish I could say I'm an early bird but I'm not. I'd like to get it done by the 13th which is my birthday :) Hopefully I'll get that sorted in the next couple days.
Here are a few pics from my week, I've just discovered pixlr.com, it's fab!
1. Giant fake tree at a local shop, so tall I couldn't get the top in the pic.
2. I can't get enough of these M&S biscuits, they're so moreish!
3. Every year our village has a wreath making morning at the hall and this is the one we made this morning.
4. What I'm reading at the moment.
The best bit of my week was on Thursday when I went with my sister to her 20 week baby scan. I haven't stepped foot in a hospital for nearly 10 years because they really set off my anxiety and I get very panicky, I normally avoid them at all costs but this was something I was adament I was going to do. I'm so so glad that I went with her because it was amazing. This is the one where they check to see if everything's formed properly and the sonographer spent a long time looking at different organs from all sorts of angles and explaining to us what she was looking for and what we were looking at. We got to see the heart (which they check for holes), kidneys, brain, etc. We even saw the lips because they check for signs of clefting.
Towards the end of the session my sister was asked if she wanted to find out the sex. She's been back and forth on whether she wanted to know but finally decided that she would find out...
It's a girl!
I'm so excited for her arrival in April because it will be the first time I'm an aunty and we don't have any kids in our family yet :)
On a completely unrelated note, I also wanted to share this that I came across on Pinterest because it's popped up in my head a lot since I saw it and it's really good advice to bear in mind if you're a bit of a worrier like me.
Hope you enjoy the weekend whatever you're up to and speak to you soon :)
