Everyday Bits and Pieces

Illuminated clouds

More renovation work

Flaming sunset

A sunny day! Walking to the post office after work

Pretty houses on the way back from the post office

Early morning shadows don’t look pregnant

At the station: blue one way …

… but hazy the other

Out of focus hooky on the train

Leeds Trinity on the way to see Rach

Teeny tiny socks-that-look-like-shoes!

Fantasy sofa choosing in Ikea

Baby things with lady birds on from Ikea!

Tea in a bugmug!

Saving paid off!

Tea and hot chocolate with The Girl

Shoes that fit my fat pregnant feet

A blustery day = perfect for drying on the line

Pink striped sky

A little hooky time and some decent progress

Finding the moth from last night snoozing in a candle

Doing normal-people house things: painting!

A freshly cleaned sink

Fading sunset after a changeable day

Bottles in the sunset

and finally, my colossal 34 week bump.

Growing the bump is my main activity these days, although I am doing a LOT of things none of them are particularly coherent. The snapshots above were taken over the course of July and are just bits of my everyday, recorded for posterity and because I haven’t been doing anything interesting enough to write a lot of words about. Sometimes pictures are just fine though and I’m glad to have a record of the small things.

    Your pictures all look lovely Heather, nice to see a bit of sunshine at last!!
    Loving the progress you are making on your vintage stripe blanket (I’m thinking of starting one soon) and of course the far more important progress you are making with growing your bump :)

    Hi Heather, what lovely snippets your photos are, my godness I can’t believe you are 34 weeks, you are going to be a mum before you know it. Enjoy what is a magical journey it will change who you are and how you view the world. xxBrenda

  3. Lovely lot of photo’s there, oh my gosh I LOVE the lady bug baby things and your mug. The photo of the bottles against the night sky is fantastic. I assume you are off work now? Over here in Aust we stop 6 weeks before bubs is due. Be nice not to have to get up for work now until ‘it’ arrives.

  5. What a sweet baby bump!
    I love your photos of the bits of your life. Such a nice life, too.
    What sweet lady bug things. I love the mug.
    Looks to me like you are keeping plenty busy, especially with still working!
    Thanks for keeping us posted.

  6. Well done on the saving. You must be very pleased to have it. Make sure you are getting plenty of rest as well as all your constant house renovation!

    Hi Heather – I’ve been following your blog for a while, but this is my first comment. It’s lovely to see your preparations for your new little one, and I suddenly thought that you might like ‘Little Crochet’ by Linda Permann. It’s by far the nicest baby/ children’s crochet book I’ve ever seen, and I’ve already made a few things from it – the patterns are nice and clear (albeit in American terminology, but with nice international pictures), and the projects are FAB!

  8. FAME. Love it when I get featured on your blog, I got loads more hits. Really should have prepared some blog posts in advance to wow new readers with, instead of complaining about the Job Centre system.

    Did you take that photo of the bump after I saw you? It looks bigger!

    I love your pictures, as always. Love the bump and the buggy – reminds me of my first pregnancy 12 years ago. So much excitement and anticipation. I was lucky enough to stop working at 34 weeks and hope you can stop soon too. Best wishes, Heather.

Enhorabuena por tu embarazo, que seas muy feliz y mil besos desde España.
