The weeks continue to zoom by and I grow ever more pregnant - 23 weeks now :) I'm planning to do a little pregnancy update next week as I'm feeling a lot better and I'm not so worried about making pregnancy sound horrendous and putting people off!
Last week my step brother got married and we got to spend a lovely day with my family. We rarely get together, my step brother is in the armed forces and lives down south so we don't get to see much of him as a rule. It was a lovely day, his bride looked beautiful and it made me wish we all lived a bit closer together. And didn't my nephew look adorable in his smart attire?
I mostly worked from home this week, except for my usual trip to Derby on Thursday. I started the week in terrible pain with my pelvis but after some physio on Monday the pain started to ease and now (touch wood etc) I feel the best I've felt in a while. I'm lucky that my physio is very sympathetic and fits an emergency appointment in for me whenever I need it, as well as reducing his fee - I think he's expecting to see a lot more of me over the coming months!
The weather has been extremely odd, we've gone from pouring rain to bright sunshine in just a couple of days. The chickens spend the wet days hiding out under one of the vehicles on the drive and the hotter days spread out sunbathing on the grass. It's amazing how flat they can make themselves, they look like they've been run over! We'll be losing the three Buffs this week, they've become a bit of a pain so we're giving them away. They're extremely scruffy and make a right mess of the shed and I'm in no fit state to clean up after them at the minute! We'll miss their big eggs but the little bantam eggs are so tasty and they're much easier to keep - we could always get a few more little hens if our egg supply runs low. And the Buffs are bullies so it will be nice for the little bantys to have a happier life again
Friday was a miserable rainy day so we spent the night hibernating at home with the bears, although we had planned to go out for dinner. I find it hard to motivate myself to get ready and go out when it's grey and dreary. Yesterday I had lunch with my sister and nephew Finley Joe and last night we went to a friend's birthday barbecue which was great fun. They are tenant farmers and live in a beautiful old rambling country manor house where the last three generations of his family have lived. The place has such a lovely family history and welcoming atmosphere, we love it there. We spent the evening on the terrace, eating, drinking (not me) and watching the sun go down over the Wolds with good company - what more could you ask for? I wore a new Isabella Oliver maxi dress and had my bump rubbed :)
I did a little bit of painting at the new house today, which is coming on a treat. The utility room is built and ready for its roof, the staircase is almost ready and it will only be a matter of weeks before we are ready to move. We've decided to let the house we live in now when we move, so I'm hoping we can stay in it until the last possible minute and get the new house as finished as possible. I know we could live in it unfinished if we had to but I'd rather get as much done as we can before we move
I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
