Family life, adventures in photography, baking and making, the great outdoors and other things that make me smile.

One of those Meme-type things
Because I feel like writing, but I don't know what and this one's doing the rounds on various blogs at the moment...
8 Things I am Looking Forward to
Finishing off two freelance jobs over the next week and having all of... ooo... a week off before the new arrival
Swimming tomorrow morning
Being able to a) kick the Gaviscon habit, b) poo and c) turn over in bed once Mini Mini Meep arrives (that was going to say 'sleep all night without waking for a wee/worry at 5am', but ha, ha, ha...)
Lots of beach picnics over the lovely sunny summer we're going to have
Transforming my garden from wild jungle to somewhere we can play, relax, eat, entertain and grow our own food
My new red Converse boots
Having Mr Meep's just-baked home-made bread for breakfast tomorrow morning (toasted, with marmite on one and peanut butter on the other, of course)
Oh, obviously, my lovely new daughter arriving in the next couple of weeks 8 Things I did Yesterday This Weekend
Bounced on a trampoline outside on a sunny Sunday morning (I so want one)
Had a lovely picnic at the beach and frolicked about in the waves in the sunshine all afternoon with a nakey Gwen, Mr Meep (clothed) and Blod - at one point declaring it was one of the happiest times I'd ever had. Ah!
Made a yummy thai curry
Had felafel and Welsh cakes and apple juice at the Farmers' Market
Had a cry outside the garden centre because I hadn't made a list of what I needed and got overwhelmed by the compost selection (hormones, anyone?)
Fell asleep while hypnobirthing - twice
Attempted to shave my bikini line with huge bump in the way - ladies, NEVER attempt this
Sat in the park with a (miniscule) cup of Leffe Blonde, like a gourmet pregnant trampette
8 Things I Wish I Could do
Run and run and run without getting tired
Escape capitalism (ooo, deep) and live in a caravan made of sustainable organic mung beans
Speak another language
Add an extra day onto each week just for reading/baking/photography/walking
Turn over in bed
8 4 Programmes I Watch Don't do telly dahling, but a bit partial to:
Adam and Joe on 6Music
My daily dose of Jeremy Vine
Endless DVDs of Charlie and Lola
The same episode of Fireman Sam on You Tube over and over and over NB - the last two not necessarily out of choice.
