Wasn't last weekend gorgeous? And a sunny bank holiday Monday, I'm not sure I've ever seen one of those before! Sadly I spent it indoors, painting architrave at the new house - though I made sure I sited my work station in the sun room with the bi-fold doors thrown wide open. I managed to get out with the dogs on Saturday and enjoyed a lovely morning walk with them, I got a bit carried away and stayed out for ages, poor things were exhausted!
Tuesday was spent with my dad and sister, taking our usual trip to Windermere for my mum's birthday visit. It was lovely weather but disappointingly, some yob had attempted to carve great chunks out of my mum's memorial bench, which rather pissed us off as you can imagine! Regardless, we had a lovely day filled with food and banter as always, I love our Windermere trips
My pregnancy rage seems to have calmed down a bit this week, unfortunately it's been replaced by emotion at the other end of the spectrum. Matt came home on Thursday night to find me crying in the kitchen
Him 'Oh God, what's wrong? Are you OK? Rach??'
Me *sob* 'I've just seen a sad dog on the telly!'
Him 'Oh no. Why was it sad? No don't tell me. What were you watching? You shouldn't be watching sad dogs on the telly'
Me *gulp*gasp* 'It was ... it was .... an advert!'
Yes people, that's right. The Pedigree Chum advert had me inconsolable for a good 15 minutes. I can't remember when I last sobbed like that!
I'm continuing the fight against my dry skin, I've discovered Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate and it's made a huge difference, I'm really impressed with it. It's not cheap but you only need a couple of drops per night so I expect it will last for ages. I also invested in a couple of fruity candles to welcome the Spring to the house, I'm finding myself strangely addicted to lemons lately. Lemon sherbets, lemon ice lollies, lemonade ... and now a lemon candle!
My morning sickness has been back with a vengeance for the last couple of days so I'm having a relaxing day at home today, curled up on the sofa with the dogs, watching Escape To The Country and drinking hot chocolate. We're going out for dinner with my sister and brother in law tonight and Matt is racing tomorrow so I'll be heading into town to do some visiting and search out some 'drapey' tops to disguise my expanding tum :)
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
