this morning was a bit freakish for a Sunday as I had everyone dressed and ready for church before 8am! Let’s just say that I’m not sleeping too well and so once I’m up, I am up! Usually our Sundays are the biggest rush to get to 8.30am mass and we end up getting to the carpark at 8.30 on the dot or late. Today we were early. It was lovely to get some last minute well wishes and hugs before tomorrow. The rest of my Sunday has been about cleaning, folding laundry, making a few lasagnes and enjoying the sunshine. We just love having so much space and spending time outside.
I also had to run around and try to make these kites go with zero wind to keep little people happy! great exercise but not so great at 39 weeks when I’d rather be a spectator.
The garden continues to surprise me. Remember at my old house how much I loved my magnolia tree? Well at this house I have 2 pink magnolias………….who knew. They aren’t as big or as grand but they are flowering – well just starting to and looking gorgeous. And they reminded me that when I came home from hospital with emerson I came home to a gorgeous flowering tree.
I also have snowdrops (thanks to my readers for letting me know what this gorgeous little plant is called)
and a few other little surprises have popped up in the last few weeks
we also have lots and lots of lemons
and does anyone like grapefruit? We have the hugest grapefruit tree ever and a house full of people who don’t like them…………………………………..
Getting out in the garden always makes me feel more calm and is a great way to play with your camera. I took all of these photos with my pro lens (this year’s birthday present) which is a great all rounder and is what I decided would be best for the first few photos in the hospital. I take all the photos in our family so it’s a bit funny handing over my camera and having someone else do it for me.
And so my bag is by the door, my hair is done (gone for a bit of ombre and loving it), I’ve spoken to the hospital this morning, I know what time to fast from and what time I’ll be wheeled down and we are all systems go……………………………….
