inspiring and encouraging mums of big kids (because little kids grow up) to create family adventure every day

~~ oops ~~


{playing the clowns at the local show -
she got a total score of 26, better than the big kids!}

No blogging for a month! My only excuse is that I've been sick for the better part of the last six weeks, and have only started to come good (not coughing for hours at a time) in the last week.

Not much happening here - I'm lucky to have the energy to get out of bed most days, and as much as the heart wants to scrap and craft, the body doesn't want to cook food for everybody, let alone indulge in a fun past time!

Had another growth scan on bubba yesterday - he's measuring about 6lb8oz atm, so they're guesstimating 8lb10oz at term... and everyone is stressing (except Steve and I) about me birthing this bubba - to the point that I was offered a c-section TWICE yesterday, after expressing that it wasn't an option for me!

My BGLs appear to be under control - although they tell me that the small, diet related blips (mayo on sandwiches, eating a home made choc chip cookie, chinese for tea with no excercise) may be enough to put me on insulin in the last few weeks, so I'm trying to be really good with my diet now (not that I haven't been good, just that I've been a little careless)

I haven't kept up with project 365... I guess I'm just out of the habit of having my camera near me, let alone taking photos - hopefully all that will change when bubba arrives - at least I've been able to keep up with the monthly blog banners, so I'll have some photos of the kids and how they've changed over the last year - my plan eventually is to create a layout of all the photos from each month, still deciding if it will be one layout of the three/four of them, or one layout each... don't have to worry about it yet!

I'm also trying to get organised for Christmas. It's only 128 days away, and I have a feeling life will be a little insane around here in the next couple of months! I created a "Christmas organiser" based on the ideas at Organized Christmas, but I made mine A5 size... although I'm having second thoughts about it, it feels a bit too small (must finish assembling it before I decide for ure ~lol~) I'm also hanging out for MME's Colorful Christmas range, and I'm thinking the 3 Bugs in a Rug looks pretty good, too.

Okay, that's enough waffle - this has taken me nearly an hour to write, between picking up rocks, putting Nat down for her nap, pushing the cat off my lap and the general sniffles associated with the tail end of a cold...
