"Bump" is my daughter's latest obsession, but she's talking about Mr Bump from the Mr Men! My bump on the other hand seems to be growing daily!

Here I am at 15, 17, 20 and this week at 24 weeks. Definately some progress. Actually I am quite scared about how big I could be by the end. I definately don't think I'll fit behind the wheel of the car!

I still have 8 weeks left at work. I only work three days a week. I often find these days sitting at my desk physically easier and less tiring than being at home alone or out and about with Bambino which, given that I didn't want to go back to work because I wanted to be with her all the time, feels wierd. I am looking forward to being with her more again when the Pips arrive and hope that I'll be in good physical health (despite obviously being sleep deprived!) so I can enjoy it.

Incidentally her room is coming on well, PJ is in there now, doing very well for a man who if he was honest would say he hates DIY!

Small Sucesses

I've managed to finish a craft project! This 'taggie' quilt for my lovely nephew's christening

And I've just made another batch of chilli jam, cross your fingers that this lot sets! I've pureed some of the faulty batch, it seems to made quite nice chilli sauce!

We're in the process of redecorating Bambino's bedroom. We've decided to move her before the twins arrive so it's all systems go!
