4 BBQs in 7 days! we're making the most of the weather, you never know how long it lasts in this country... i'm pretty wasted now, spent all day finishing the ironing, and tidying up, and cooking, then we sat out with our neighbours and ate, a lot... chicken skewers, pork skewers, burgers, tomato salad, potato salad, corn on the cob... and now, an hour later, i still managed a mars ice cream bar... savage! it was lovely and laid back, just 4 grown ups and a baby, so there was no hassle getting food ready for everybody at the same time.

in germany it was mother's day today, i have a cute old photo scanned, but i don't have it to hand... maybe later this week! (13.05.08: i found it! here it is!)
(I wasn't the prettiest baby, i admit, i got a little cuter for the following 4 years or so, honest!)

tomorrow i have my 'booking appointment at the hospital. i'm really nervous. i'm really hoping the baby is still there, and alive and healthy! i'm also hoping i will get into the midwife led unit, but i'm fairly healthy and a good weight and haven't had any complications so far, so fingers crossed!

shattered now, i think it's nearly bedtime for me, want to be well rested for tomorrow, a friend said it might take all day! and the last two nights i hardly slept, lots of nightmares to do with hospitals and giving birth...


  1. I hope you had some good news at your hospital visit!
    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I spend some time on yours too and I am sure I will be back to see how things turn out for you.

  2. i did, thanks! all well with the baby as far as they can tell!
