Currently.... vol13

Linking up with Jenna and Anne for what I am "Currently..." doing. This is vol 13 (May), and the 3rd one for me though.


Currently I'm....

{designing} My hans birthday card, well I should be. I'm mostly laying about on my sofa feeling sorry for myself.

{enjoying} The peace and quiet (but not the waiting) before my baby girl arrives. Due yesterday so hopefully any day now!

{ordering} Baby stuff, its surprising how much they need and how expensive it all is considering the pittance you get for maternity pay.

{celebrating} The Royal Baby! It makes a change for the news to be nice for once. Also, more importantly, the imminent arrival of my own little princess and the fact the Royal Baby didn't commandeer the name we had in mind ;)

{tasting} All the delicious new things on Mikes menu for our lunches since I've been home :) The slow cooker is a hit for stews and the chilli con carne nachos are super yum. I probably shouldn't be eating so much, the wee one gets bigger every day and I'm running out of clothes that fit over the bump now!

What are you currently doing?

Happy #Caturday - Not a dog

Leeloo as a kitten

I've been looking through some old photos of the babies recently, this one of Leeloo stood out simply because she still does this. She loves her stick toys and will fetch them for you to throw for her. You would think she's like a dog but she's much less helpful because she never brings it right back to you, you're not involved enough in her game unless you get up to get the stick from her the last foot or so. We are well trained human slaves. *Sigh* Cats.
