Baby Shower Count Down!

Have done the biggest shop ever for tomorrow. Need to warn people not to eat too much before they get here! I'm really looking forward to it though - will be great to see old friends and meet new ones and all with Nic's happy times ahead in mind. Which reminds me, still need to finish my gift!

In between baby showering, MBA, Pooch-maintenance and...what was that other thing? Oh yeah, working... I have been doing a cracking amount of knitting. Had a bit of a medication malfaunction this week and the mindless knitting on the EZ charity jumper really helped me calm things down.

Do you remember when you first started blogging? It's like that, only better. I've been putting on my current WIP and adding projects to my queue and making friends with people (I'm littlelixie - send me a message!). It is just so darn cool. Join the queue now to get involved - they're sending out a thousand invites a week but the waiting list is something crazy like 7000 so get in the line now.

Enough hysterics. I have a finished object.

Isn't it pretty? I want to wear it right now but am saving it for the wedding. And while we're at it, check out that cleavage. Yeah baby. This whole fat thing has some benefits anyway.

Friday saw me get a make over and I think I ended up looking like aunt sally. I think it is the lips.
