Tit for tat

Oh man, bra companies are going to run out of letters of the alphabet  to accommodate these forever blooming bazookas. I was a B cup on my wedding day 11 years ago. Now I am making Katie Price look flat chested and am heading closer to the Z cup and beyond.

Judging from my current size, I reckon I will have enough milk supplies to feed my entire neighbourhood as well as the baby (who I am calling Brian/Brenda) as my baps are practically taking over my torso.

Basically, my bust is busting out and I think it's safe to say I'm keeping maternity bra firms in business right now. However, I think the bump has slowed down in size. Isn't it funny, two people this week said I look tiny and can't believe I am due in a few weeks.

Yet for months, I have been told I am  massive.

I feel really well. I am embracing this pregnancy and am so excited. I've met some lovely mums to be and planning to meet a whole new group of them tomorrow in my favourite cafe in town.

Talking of meeting people in cafes, I caught up with my bloggy friends this week. We scoffed cake and then a massive plate of scampi and chips. And we shopped. It was lush.

Sadly Ashley couldn't make it, but we have plans to travel to her soon and then go out  again for festive frolics before the baby arrives. Not seen her in so long.

Gotta love Shabby Chic Sarah and Annaboos House Sarah. SUCH a good day!

I also received something that made me squeal this week. Gayna, aka Cuckoo, crocheted me this tea cosy. I've admired hers for so long and she knows I am rubbish with all things crochet so kindly made me one. Such a lovely surprise.



Righto, treasures from the cherry tree. This towel rail which I am giving some Annie Sloan love to. I got it for £4. A bargain.



Look at the glorious weather yesterday (Thurs) when I painted it.


Indian summer...........................



The sky was amazing and I painted contentedly while the children's bedding billowed through the breeze.  Simple pleasures.

Ok no more washing shots. Bit weird.

I also bought these brand new shoes for £3.99 while charity shopping with the two bloggy Sarahs. I heart them.  Shiny and violet coloured and just....well...lush.



Here I am, this morning, before I started painting bits and bobs. Nesting already. Oh dear.




Oh and I am rather addicted to making crocheted boob baby hats. I am perfecting my woolly nipples.......

Bap bonnets

Mammary milinery
 And so I leave you with fond memories of the short but sweet Indian summer while I pootle off to bed. At 11.30pm again. Grrrrrrr. Need sleep but always stuff to do!

GEM GEM GEM!

I am sitting here laughing my head off as I read about your current situation. Hmmmmm.....it is a wonder what the human body goes through to accommodate LIFE! YOU LOOK FANTASTIC WOMAN! I just see a bump, and no other huge parts! teehehehehhe....really! I have seen some women really get large all over, but you look as if you are all baby! AND I LOVE THOSE nipple hats. That is a HOOT and I even told my husband about them the last time you posted on them. He laughed too and thought that was a brilliant idea!

OH MY DEAR...thank you for coming to visit my post. I bet your English autumns are cozy and speaking of which, I WANT THAT TEA COZY! It is perfect with its little bunch of pink flowers....I wonder if she sells these?

BE WELL dear friend. We are waiting to hear about the arrival! Anita

Crikey. I can't believe the babber will be he in just 8 weeks. That's nuts. Or have they brought your due date forward and so it is sooner? They kept doing that will Teddy. I was due according to my dates on the first of Jan but I was so giant by 7 months they said 28th November!!! I put my foot down and said that was tosh as I knew exactly when he was conceived. He was a biggun mind. Dead easy to hoof out though.

Those nip hats!!!! Hilarious!!! Are they breastfeeding support props or actually for putting on new born heads?

You could so easily crochet up a flowery tea cosy. Honestly it really is not beyond your ability. I just knew you are flat out at the mo and really wanted you to have a tea cosy like mine because I knows you loves it! So when you have more time (ha ha ha!) you can make yourself some in all sorts of teapot sizes.

You look so gorgeous in that pic!!
We did have a great time, didn't we? I cannot believe how warm it was. Have you worn the purple shoes yet?
And those boobie hats are the best! A friend of mine has asked if I can make a boob scarf as a prop for her to use in the Early Baby Unit!! I'll have to show you a picture!

Take care, my lovely.
