As well as the fabulous Christmas present the girls bought us collectively, Joanne and Gavin also had another very special present on Christmas Day, just from them.
Here is the obligatory scan photo, but as with most scan photos you can't really make anything out.
Her first scan was today and we are all very excited about his, or her arrival on or around August 27th!
They have been trying since they got married almost 2 years ago so it was a very special announcement and I don't think Joanne could quite believe it until today's scan. I've been bursting to tell since they announced it on Christmas Day, and now I can, and I have, lol.
Nanny has already started knitting and squirrelling things away, (because that's what we do!), and I just can't resist all the cute baby things when I go shopping :-)
I haven't seen the scan photo in person yet because i've been laid up with flu like symptoms for the past 2 days, I know it wasn't proper flu of course but it was bad enough to keep me in bed for all of yesterday and most of today, and i'm not one for lying around. I didn't want Joanne coming up and risk catching what I had so i'll have to wait until i'm feeling better.
Any other news just feels a bit unnecessary after that announcement doesn't it so i'll just say that at the beginning of the new month I changed my mantle decorations.
. If you were reading my blog this time last year you will notice that they are exactly the same bits and bobs now as then.
I shall also be looking forward to opening my Valentine exchanges on Tuesday,
I posted mine out in plenty of time so hopefully they have arrived safe and sound. My Needlecraft Haven exchange parcel arrived sometime last week and my Send a Little Love exchange arrived this morning. so I will be able to share sent and received next time.
We've started the ball rolling with getting a new kitchen, and this weekend have to go and make final choices for handles and some other bits and pieces, the new window and door are being fitted on Monday. I'm both looking forward and also dreading it at the same time. If it was as straight forward as ripping the old out and putting in new I wouldn't be as bothered but there is a doorway to put in, some pipes to move, a water meter in the wrong place which has to be moved and plastering to be done. I keep telling myself I survived the bathroom make over, I can survive the kitchen make over, lol
Until next time
