Alive and Kicking

Woah how long since the last blog... too long!! Well I am still alive (just) and the baby bean has started kicking!

Its been a whirlwind of madness in this house the last couple of months, sickness and visitors and crazy afternoons.

Huds got chicken pox, which is fine, except I've never had it. So I was sent pronto to hospital to get needled to check my immunity, seems I have a natural immunity which is awesome and means I wont get a wonky baby (well not a chicken pox related one, we cant do anything about the parents being weird). Then Dan got swine flu, OMG its like the worst ever man flu x 1,000,000 he thought he was dying, I thought I was going to kill him. Neither me nor the Hud caught it (go the super awesome immune system).

Dans mum and step dad arrived from Aussie for 3 weeks to sta with us, which was great, they brought me yarn and dyes :D. S (Dans step dad) made me a shelf for my crafty area (which Hudson helped make)
and I'm all organised and in love...

Its lush and gorgeous and makes me feel inspired. I have done lots of dyeing and lots of sewing ready for a store stocking on the 1st August. Lots of yarn types and new colourways. I am planning a music themed stocking next month, its been very fun.

What else, hmmm, well, me and Dan had our 6th (yes 6th) year wedding anniversary on the 13th July, we had our baby scan in the morning...

its a real live baby in there!!! My dates were spot on and I am due January 30th 2010. We then went to London for the day with Hudson and Dans parents, brother and his bros girlfriend. We went to the Natural History Museum

which was awesome, we made a deal not to get gifts or cards this year, as we are broke and cards are a waste of money that end up in the bin, instead we got each othera £5 gift from the gift shop of the museums we visited, and the traditional gift for 6 years is candy, so we got each other a sweetie too. So, from the NHM I got Dan a DinoMagic dinosaur..
Then we went on to the Science Museum and Dan bought me a Robotic Hand...

I think i got the better gift!

All in all its been a fun and interesting few months, and it seems summer finally arrived...
