Hello stranger

30 weeks

I love that when I go a week or so without writing a post I get emails from total strangers asking me if everything is alright. (So sweet.. Thank you!)

Everything is going really well, as I said in my last post.. better than ever! I can't believe that we are so close to having a place to call home AND a little baby! (Although it's a little scary when these things are so, so close but you are not quite there yet).

I have been so busy all week trying to organise everything to make our dream house turn into a reality (Building inspections, wood ant inspections etc. etc.) but we are now just waiting for the bank to give us the green light and hopefully they will! (I've been preying to the mortgage gods all week!)

I also reached 30 weeks yesterday which feels like such a huge milestone.. I am finally starting to get out of bed for an hour or so each day and it feels so good to be back in the world again! I managed to get a hair cut (for the first time in almost a year) and make a very quick stop at the local fabric store last week.. both things that I have been dreaming of doing for months.

I wanted to post a photo of my belly to show you all but Tom was busy cooking dinner (and making the most delicious pears poached in red wine for desert), I didn't want to disturb him so I asked Sophie to take a photo for me..

This is what I ended up with.. Either she is a brilliant, creative photographer in the making or just can't manage to hold my phone still enough.. I'm going to go with creative genius!

So glad all is going well for you Katie. I can imagine your busy week with all the house/mortgage stuff you must have to organise. How lovely to be allowed out of bed for increasing lengths of time - must be bliss for you!! I think Sophie's photo is definitely creative whether it was intentional or not!! Big hugs xx

Dear Katie and family!
I check your blog everyday for news. I am so excited for you all. So happy to hear you have reached 30 weeks and the house is so close as well.
Again I keep all my fingers crossed that all works well.
Lovely greetings from Vienna/ Austria,

So, so, SO EXCITING!!! This post makes me really happy! My family is also moving, so I know what you're going through with that. Best of luck!

I think Sophie is very talented! Photos like that are art. :)

Imagine in 5 years time you show this same photo to Sophie and she says something like "I did NOT take that photo!" It makes me laugh out loud when our son can't believe drawings he made and photos he took at age 3 and 5 are really his. Priceless.

I'm one of those 'strangers' - though not strange!

I just stumbled across your blog a few months back... I've never left a comment before but I do keep popping back to see how things are going.

When I read this post I just wanted to say 'hi'

I hope everything works out perfectly for you and your family.

I hadn't read your blog for quite a few months. I stumbled across it again this morning and there you are about to have a baby! Despite not knowing you I was so very happy to see you pregnant again!
I'll be staying tuned over the next few weeks!
Good luck x x

Thanks for your comment.. It is nice to know that there is someone out there (other than my husband) reading my posts! Xx
