Blogtoberfest starts tomorrow

And I have signed up. I have no idea what I am going to post on each day (or how for that matter) but I aim to get a lot further along that last year when I went over on my internet allowance about middway through the month. If you are interested pop on over to tinniegirl and join in the fun.

Pregnancy Sucks

Why oh why am I not one of the lucky ones who falls pregnant and breezes through the next nine months glowing?

A colleague recently told me ‘it was your choice – stop complaining’.

How does it follow that just because I chose to have a child I automatically have to suffer in silence if my pregnancy is not what I expected it to be.

Yes I chose to have a baby. I did not choose to have morning sickness for 20+ weeks, back pain, insomnia and insulin dependant gestational diabetes.

Why can’t I let off steam when it all gets too much for me to deal with, when the end still seems so far off and the reward still seems so unreal.

So here I am letting off a little bit of pregnancy steam.

Oh My!

It has been six months since I last posted.  Sorry, there has been a lot going on and to be honest I am not sure where to start. 

Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild Oh Beehave Blocks

My Mondrian Quilt - blocks made by the lovely Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild Oh Beehave Quilt Bee

And the main reason I have not been online.
This little tyke is due in January.

We have also had visitors from the UK and packed up the house and moved out while renovating (hope to be back in in mid October)

We have more visitors from the UK in late October and again over Christmas and witht he renovations and everything else going on I have not had time to sew much.  Trying to do some knitting though but it is all going really slowly.

I have some photos of finished quilts on my camera but we packed the cable so can't get them onto the computer.  Typical.

I promise not to leave it so long next time and I will plan to take part in Blogoctoberfest to get me back into the habit of regular posting.

Take care
