Well goodness me with a few days at the end of last week with a little momentum behind us, and the kids pretty much on the mend, I was excited for Friday to arrive. Ben took the day off and we headed out for a family fun day with the kids. We're wanting to give them as many fun and memorable moments at present before bubs arrives. I had my digital SLR in hand and I was snapping away at the kids enjoying themselves.
We had fish and chips for lunch and just enjoyed being with each other. When we got home we put the kids down for a late nap, I sat down with my camera in hand, and a cup of tea ready to edit photos, and take it easy while the Ben tackled some more painting. I was even going to try and pump out a few blog posts for the week ahead, you know pre-plan and get ahead and on track again. But what did I do? I accidentally deleted all the pictures from my camera. So I sat and cried like a pregnant hormonal woman, with Cohen's words ringing in my ears that it had been the best day ever.
Thankfully the Ben snapped a few pics on his iPhone and some video as well. But nothing in comparison to the moments we had delighted in that I had caught with my camera. So you can just imagine from the pic how much fun the kids were having and what a lovely time it was for us.
Saturday morning we were setting out with a list of errands to run and things to do and Sunday I was hoping to sneak by a local PCYC, where an antiques and collectibles fair was on. But just before we were heading out Saturday morning and I was getting ready, plans changed. What resulted was Saturday morning in hospital for bubs and I to be checked out. For the record all is well, no alarm for concern, he is still all happy and safe in his womb home for now. It was all precautionary because of
my history so they asked me to go in and be safe rather then sorry.
In other news from the last week, I've only been able to get a little bit of traction with all the sick bugs with everyone here finally settling down. So I've only just been able to get back to the job of nesting and getting ready for bubs and other matters on my to do list. One thing I did manage at the end of last week, was an album on Facebook of sale items. Through my nesting process I'm trying to sell off excess from personal collections and pieces that don't quite fit into the view of what I desire to have in my Etsy store for the business. I'm being very focused and ruthless about my visions for the overall image of my shop, store, and market locations.
I hope everyone is well, and that your weekends were enjoyable ones and that your day today is met with smiles and sunshine.
