Waiting for Baby, Relaxing and Enjoying......

I'll let you all in on a little secret. Although the week just passed has been another filled with waiting, there shan't be anymore waiting by next weekend. So without divulging all news and excitement now, come this time next week life will have changed all over again for my sweet family and it will have expanded.

The past week has been full of all sorts of goings on's and this is how things have looked.

Wednesday was my 35th birthday, the day came and passed pretty much like every other. I received some lovely cards and a visit from my mum, a Frankie magazine subscription, sentiments, love and thoughts. As well as a delivery of homemade food treats and goodies from a very sweet and dear mummy friend. I know you'll just be salivating at this load of goodies that has kept me perked up this week.

I received homemade Maple Muesli loaded with the most amazing assortment of crunchy nuts. Homemade cinnamon scrolls and with homemade Chai Syrup, as well as homemade Macadamia Milk.

Thursday saw me have the day in bed after kindy and family day care drop offs were done by 9am, watching movies, reading, filling out hospital paperwork. But somehow that didn't stop me having a stint in hospital on Thursday night for several hours, when I had a sever bout of blurred vision, headaches and dizzy spells when picking the kids up from care. It was rather scary and I thought I may end up having an accident ploughing my car into another on the side of the road. Verdict is all is well, but I was put on orders to slow down and rest, because it appears I'm fighting a viral infection taking hold of me, which of course comes from my lot all having been a revolving door of sickness lately.

Friday and Saturday saw us all resting and relaxing a lot, having snuggles and naps. But come Sunday the Ben was wanting to make sure I followed doctors orders, but was also wanting to have a family outing with the kids one last time before belly bubs arrival, so he plotted and planned. He strategically planned a lovely drive down to Burleigh right to the door of a shop he thought I'd like to look at called Six Things. With my birthday having been during the week, he wanted me to have a brief and very relaxed outing with a few treats for an hour or two.


We both fell in love the wonderful mix Six Things had on offer, from local handmade items to pop culture and cult classics home wares, decor and clothing right through to vintage pieces and vintage inspired pieces. There was something there for everyone in this wonderful little store. Here are just some of the things we loved (and there's so much more on their online store).

Would you also believe that just doors down from the shop was an op shop opened on a Sunday that's a rarity to here for a store to be opened Sunday, so the Big V insisted I'd want to look. I'm more than certain that it was my last op shop outing until after bubs arrival.

Master V is rather pleased with his new op shop bought glasses, and doesn't he half know how cool he is with them on. I of course managed to find a treasure which I'll show at another time. It was a lovely couple of very leisurely hours out with my family which as always has left me reminded of my blessings and full of smiles and gratitude.

It is the lull before the storm. The quiet moments that feel so special because you know something huge is about to happen. I am getting more than a little excited for you

How lovely of the Big V to take you to such a gorgeous store. I'm so glad you enjoyed one last brief outing as a family. I'll be checking for news of belly bubs entry to the world, although I won't have much internet access. Sending you big love & squeezes & wishing you all the best as this week passes. Xx

No not long at all. I'll do my best to rest up, but I'm sure someone around home will give me a kick in the bum I don't.
