I hope you all had a good weekend, and found some timeout, for yourselves,
We had a lovely lunch with Claire on Tuesday. I say we, because Paul announced he was taking Tuesday & Wednesday off. He did ask if we were doing anything for Claire's birthday, and I said "yes I'm taking her out to lunch". His bottom lip then stuck out and he took on the look of a child, and said in a sulky voice "can I come". I wanted to carry it on, but I gave in and said Yes of course you can come. Someones got to pay the bill!. We went to a lovely country pub and had an amazing 3 course dinner then back to Claire's for coffee. It was about 6pm when we got home. It might just be me, but if I go out for lunch and get home late afternoon, early evening all I want to do is go to bed.
Today ( Sunday ) I have been batch cooking Lasagna's Chilli-con-Carne's, cottage pies & Korma curries to stock Claire's freezer to make life easier at meal times, and for Craig too, I can't leave my boy out. Paul went to London to a lunch at Ronnie Scott Jazz club, my idea of hell!, sorry if I have offended anyone. It was a Christmas pressie from my sister. So I was able to knuckle down to some full on cooking. The kitchen looked like a bomb site. I do clean as I go but still ended up with loads of washing up. All done now.
Now I am in my workroom making a flower and leaves to go on Tuesday card, lovely to sit down!
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my tutorial, I really enjoy doing them.
Hope you all have a lovely week everyone. Same time same place next week.
7 day's to go, still not counting though! At the end of the card is a little present I have bought for our little granddaughter, I melted when I saw it and had to get it.
OMG, I took the meals over to Claire's today ( Monday ) that I had made for them and the first thing I noticed is that our baby bundle has dropped Eeeekkk,. I Stayed with Claire for the afternoon, nothing much on telly but Claire's tummy was mesmerizing, our little half pint was moving, not as aggressive as in past days but more intense. You can actually see the shape of her little bottom and her foot pushing on the side of Claire's tummy. It's fascinating just watching Claire's tummy moving, and in just a few days we will meet that little bump. Claire showed me all the other little things they have bought for their little girl, and it made me think that we had bourne ours in the stone age. Now It's Cots that you can have the same height as the bed for easy feeding. Rocker chairs that play music & nature sounds that operate with battery power and not with a foot rocking it, changing stations on top of the cot. My goodness, how lucky this generation is.
How times have changed!
