Day 78.....Wellness!!

Finally getting around to going for my day at the spa!! had a facial today and have money left on my voucher for post baby pampering. It was so lovely and relaxing, i was floating around for the day after it!!! Ahhhhh bliss!!

Day 77......New car!!!!!

Yeahhh its here!! Our new car!!! We are well chuffed with it, loads of toys and space and cool gadgets we keep finding something new everytime we sit into it!!! Richie worked so so hard the last few weeks and has sold most of his diving gear to help towards the price of it and i couldnt be prouder of him!! He really pulls out all the stops to provide for us-even if it is a lovely splurge in lieu of a honeymoon we've never got to have!!! I dont care how many people sneer down their noses about no ressesion in our house, my fantastic hubby works till the early hours of the monring some nights to keep us all going and without his dedication to us and his business we'd be in a very different place now! Thanks you!!

Day 76......Blossom

I love this tree, the worst  thing with the white blossom is that it only ever lasts about two weeks before a gust of wind takes them off again!! A lovely sign that summer is well and truely on the way!! Yeahhhhhh

Day 75....Mothers day

Had such a lovely weekend, was spoilt rotten!!! My little man-with help from the bigger man of the house got me a new charm for my bracelet-with a little diamond in it-which is the birth stone for April for my lil pingy!! Awwww i love it!! My bracelet is filling up nicely!

Day 74.....Home colouring

I really really shouldnt but im always one to take a notion!!!! This is the new hair colour-in preparation for my hospital visit!! You'd think i was going away on holidays they way im acting hee hee!!!! Well my hair turned out lovely, but i cant say the same for the shelf in the bathroom.......oops!!

Day 73.....Best Pals

Jack and Billy loving spending the day in mahon point with their mammies!!! We had a lovely morning with them, Jack just adores him and they play wrestling up in the play area!! Jack has now decided that baby Fireman Sam is now going to be a baby sister because Billy has a baby sister! I hope they are still friends in years to come! They are so funny to watch!!

Day 72......MotoX

A trip to Vernon mount for a day of moto x! Richies new hobbie! Someday he will be as good as these guys!! Wont ya love???? Hee hee!! 

Day 71.....Jack and Jack

Might get very confusing but Jack loves baby Jack, he always loves holding him and trying to help out with him!!! And fair play to baby Jack he doesnt mind Jack being in his face!! I hope he is as good with his new baby sister or brother in a few weeks time!! I love this picture, Jack thinks he is so big in compasirson wont be long till Baby Jack is running around with him!!

Day 70....First day at the beach

We took advantage of the good weather and headed to the beach, it was much colder  than what we had thought, very windy!!! But Jack and Richie had a great time playing hurling and poor skipper didnt know what was going on that she got a spin in the car!!

Day 69......My laptop :(

Been on the blink for about a week now, got a new charger for it yesterday but now the charger is overheating and cutting out! Hope it gets sorted properly soon, i miss it! And i have squinty eye from being on my phone all the time!

Day 68.....Painting

Yeahhh painting!!! Our sitting room and kitchen is long over due a freshen up. So we sorted out the sitting room now just leaves the kitchen. Jack has a lovely mural of sqribbles in black permenant marker all over one of the walls, ive tried everything and nothing shifted it!! Looks like two coats of paint will help-hopefully!

Day 67......Cheers

My cousins were over for the weekend, i love seeing them, i wish i could see more of them. Here is Blackie and Mandy with Jack in the middle just about to watch the match in Reardens. Id be lost with out my cousins, Tina who is not in this pick is my best friend as well as my cousin, we are so alike and we have the best laugh when we are together, she is also my rock and when ever i need her she is always on the other end of the phone. Jack adores them too he was so excited all week (and me too) when we were doing the countdown to when we'd see them

Day 66........Big Knickers

Me and Jack went off to pennys to get the last of the bits and pieces for the hospital, we wandered around pennys for awhile and i was just heading for the till when jack kindly reminded me that i was forgetting something. So with a massive hand gesture and at the top of his voice he said "Mam what about your big big big big knickers"-nice one Jack im glad the whole of pennys now know what we came for hahahahaha. We headed for smothies afterwards so relax for a few minutes, he is so funny honest to god i hope he always stays as funny and lovely and that his little sister or brother will be the same :)

Day 65.......Sleepovers and Birthdays

We had the loveliest girlie night in chez Dee!! Yvonne, Sarzie and Rosie came down and as it was the girls birthday we got them a cake, I laughed so hard at Dee on the phone ordering the cake and trying to spell gimpy. And then we laughed again when we actually saw that they left out the AND between Sarz and Gimpy so the two are combined now some what like Jedward LOL. We had such a lovely night, some Dinos and a night in chatting in the jammies!!

Day 64.....Sharing is Caring

My sister Linda treated me and Jack to lunch today, we shared a dessert -white chocolate and rasberry cheescake, it was lush i have to say!!! But shhhhhh dont tell Harry she is supposed to be off nice things for lent hee hee!

Day 63.......D-Day

Or should i say C day. I got my date for my section!!!! The 20th of April i will be 39 weeks and will have my new little pingy! Its so exciting now that im booked in and the countdown is on!! The doctor said she will have me home for my easter egg, which i have instructed Richie to get the biggest one he can find....ooh and it has to be galaxy mmmmmmmm no flowers thanks Flynnie just loads of chocolate before i had to go back to being good again!!

Day 62......My Bible

This is my folder for the hospital, i have to bring it to every appointment, its pretty empty in comparison to the one i had for Jack. All my scan pictures, all my notes are in here and i love going through it, even though i dont understand half the lingo in it.

Day 61......Bondi rescue

One of my guilty pleasures is watching Bondi rescue, i lovei it and Whippet who used to be Sam on Home and Away is definetly worth watching for hee hee! Jack enjoys it too, and i caught him doing this last week, lying across his table-or his surf board as he now calls it and paddling out to do his rescue hee hee!! I love the imagination, everyday there is something new, sometimes its giving me some back chat with his cross face on and he is Ben 10 and turns into a dragon and gives out to me but other times it really is funny and we get such a great kick out of him every day

Day 60.....Balming out

Here is Skipper beat out from running around after birds and the cats all day. I know i posted picture of her a while back in by the fire but it really is her favourite place and her snorning away i just had to add her in again! She torments the life out of me with all her barking but i wouldnt be without her i just wish she would stop rolling around in the cow shit in the field out the back-VOM

Day 59....Belly Buttons gonna get ya!!!

My innie is now an outtie!!! Much to the entertainment of Richie and Jack. I also use it to freak out my friends hahaha!! Im sooooo glad that belly button piercing is long gone. Just another indictation the end is in sight!!! This picture could be anyone, couldnt it??? Surely its a big hairy man with a giant beer belly??

Day 58.....Glamour at its finest!

Some of the bits and pieces i need for hospital, oh the glamour of it all. I got a great kick out of buying these bits and pieces, what happend to all that lovely underwear i once wore and the perky boobies??? Long gone thats where, but all worth it of course. I cant believe ive 8 weeks left, feels like yesterday we found out.

Day 57.....Wooly Bears anyone??

Comfyiest things on the planet!!!! Like a wearable sleeping bag, these are Richies for diving, another one of his beloveds that is for sale, he has sold most of his diving gear now, poor fella i know it hasnt been easy for him. He washed them last night and since its been such a nice day i hung them out to dry, they look so funny up on the line.Fair play Richie your a trooper xxxx

Day 56....Getting to Grips!!

I was sorting out all the little clothes for the baby and i was showing Jack-he thought it was the funniest thing he ever saw and kept holding it up and laughing at it!!! I really cant wait for him to meet the baby! I then showed him a tiny nappy, he just thinks this is fantastic altogether, so we got a teddy bear put on the nappy and vest and off he went to the playroom and arrived back with the bouncer, so now teddy has had three nappy changes gone through half a packet of wipes and is bouncing away, and every now and again Jack picks him up and says Shh shh shh while rocking him, he has also told him shut up of i'll put you outside with skipper hahahaha!! Oh bring on fun times ahead!!!!

Day 55....Now this is what i call fast food!

Out in my friends dossing away-as you do like, i thought feck it i took nothing out for dinner-a quick stop off at Blackpool shopping center i spotted this!!!! A steal i think for a tenner-whack it in the oven for 50 minutes and drown it in gravy-oh my oh my it was lush, it will be gotten again

Day 54.....Happy Birthday Sonny

Richies dad was 66 the other day, we had this idea to get a cake made up for him, my highlight of the evening was when he was cutting the cake and seemed to revert back to being 5 years of age pretending to open the back door of the van, and how we all laughed about weather the matress was fully orthopedic or not LOL
Im glad he got such a great kick out of it i love being able to do something nice for my inlaws.
The Smallies had a great night too, all very hyper after plenty of icing and fair play to Trish for laying on some yummy yummy food i had two helpings of everything.............but im eating for two........... ;-)

Pete gave me his yummy brownie reciepe. I decided to give them a whirl today and all i can say is squidy yumminess! Who needs google,Jamie or Nigella when i have Pete??? I remember the first time i met Pete and his lovely wife Yvonne, it was the weekend of my birthday 2009, they made me these brownies-honest to god two of the nicest people i know!!  Dee, Sharon and myself pigged out at about 3am in our hotel!!! One of the best weekends i ever had and got to meet so many new and lovely people that are now my closest friends. These brownies will always remind me of them, and just a million thanks for all the help with Lamb,Ham Brownies and well just about everything i make these days!! I have a very happy husband who feels the same xx

Day 51....C is for Clothes!

Seriously how much more can my washing machine and dryer be on the go!!! I am now convinced that people sneak in by night wear our clothes and leave them on the floor. My most hated job in the house is folding them and putting them away, Richie and Jack are easy its just when i open my wardrobe things fall out on top of me! Richie i know you love that i have admitted that outloud, LOL xx

Day 49......H is for Housewife

Thats me the perfect housewife today!! Stepford have nothing on me!!! A yummy sheppards pie and some delish cup cakes!!! Have myself home bound for the next few weeks, i get so weak and my SPD plays havoc with me if im out and about all day, no harm in taking it easy for now anyway no doubt when number 2 arrives i wil be wishing for it!!

Day 46.....Go safari

Baby Jacks first play center visit!!! How cute is he in this entertainer!! It was also another first for him to have some toast, he wasn't quiet sure but kept coming back for another little taste!!!My Jack ran the legs off himself up and down slides and being super independant and buying his own juice off the lady and give her the money!! Yummy lunch and home to crash out!!! A lovely day!!!

Day 45.....She passed!!! Woohoo

This is my sister!!! She passed her driving theory test!! So watch out road users she is hitting the road soon!! EEK!!!! Im thrilled for her and when she is more mobile it will be brilliant and a great help to me when i have the smallie too!!! She will be driving her Yaris-that was my first car too, i loved it!! So i will defiently be taking a few spins off her car hee hee Congrats linyloos

Day 44.....Diamonds are forever

These are the sparkly bits from my wedding bouquet, i cant bring myself to throw them out and thet are pretty!! I dug them out the other evening to put in the flowers i got off Richie for valentines day. Aww i did want to have my bouquet preserved it was so beautiful

Day 43.....Things about me

I bite my nails,my worst habbit although im sure Richie would say that when i interupt people that is far worse!!! EEK!!! I use that awfull tasting nail varnish on my nails to help me stop, they are good at the moment, i filed them all down the other night-hense why they look awfull i can never do a good job myself!!! I better hide them from Dee-she'll murder me hahaha
I initially tried to take a picture of another burn on my middle finger, im such a friggin clutz lately every time i make the dinner i burn one of my fingers or part of my hand off something!!!

Day 42......WTF Hailstones????

Someone tell mother nature its actually spring time!!!! Beautifull day here and then all of a sudden it gets really dark and the hailstones started pelting down, it was mad!! It lasted about 5 minutes and as quick as it came it went and the sky cleared again and the sun was back out!!!

Day 41...What to get next!

I love my pandora bracelet, i love getting something new for it but it has to mean something, i have my littel boy for Jack, my kangaroo to remind me of our hols in oz, my wedding cake was what i got on my hen, the i love you box that i got when we got married and the love heart i got for my birthday, all the lovely glass ones i picked up down in Killarney where we spent a few days after the wedding to add some colour! Must get a new baby one now for the next arrival...ooh and maybe some purple glass!! 

Day 40.....Two of a kind

There's no doubt about it, Jack is definetly a daddies boy!! Here they are watching the match, and daddy shouting "come on" and Jack repeating everything even when he said "oh Bollox"!!!!!! Its defiently time to curb the bad language!! We couldnt help but laugh!!!
Despite the myth that breast feeding hinders a proper bond for the dad, it certainly is far from wrong here!!! For a time jack would gladly wave me off at the door but bawl cry when Richie left, he just adores him and its so sweet to watch him copy everything that Richie does!! Like his little mini me!! I have started to get more of a look in since we got married! Maybe Jack now knows we have the same surname LOL

Day 39.....Things are bad!!!

Uh oh its that time again!!! Seperate quilts!!! Well with my new body tempreture not so unlike the children on the ready brek add i am freezing my poor husband out of it!!! So on my side of the bed is the summer quilt and on Richies side is the winter quilt!! The window is constantly open and i have pillows for every inch of my growing bump!! Poor Richie resembles a caterpiller in a coocoon when he goes to bed and the gale force wind that blows in the window and a quilt that is only thrown over half of me keep us happy and no need for seperate beds.....well just yet anyway hahaha!!!

Day 38....Toy story

Well there Jack was sitting having his lunch when he wanted a kiss so off he toddles over to give me a kiss and we have a little conversation....this is how it went....
Me: Love you
Jack: Love you too
Me: Who else do you love
Jack : ermmm Daddy, baby fireman sam and ermmmm TOY STORY
Which was shouted with excitement!! I thought it was so funny, toy story has become a part of our lives and for two days this week he has been Buzz Lightyear, very similiar to stars in your eyes LOL, Every time we called him Jack he shouted No my names buzz lightyear and continued to shoot me with his lazer hahaha

Day 37....Cravings

Well it started out very normal and all i wanted was bags and bags of meanies, id normally hate anything that flavour but i wanted it so bad!!! My press has a good supply of these!!! Then up in Richies mums house when she was having her doors varnished i could have licked the doors!!!! Thats all i want, i hang out down in Richies shed like a druggie looking for my next fix!! He has hidden paint and varnish and other such smelly things!! So with chatting to my lovely friend Rosaleen she suggested i have a quick sniff off a firelighter so curb the varnish cravings-well hasnt that opened up a whole new can of worms!! Thanks Ros!!! LOL
I no sooner look sideways at the box of firelightes and Richie is shooting me dirty looks across the room and accusing me of solvent abuse hahahah!!! I decided to add it to my 365 to remind my poor fading brain of this time!!! 

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Day 36....Mushy Peas!!

Giving my self a clay mask earlier!! Im only beautiful! Jack says its like mushy peas and i chased him around the house pretending to be a monster!! So facials are beneficial all round haha!! I dont know why i bothered though, I will be slapping on some make up later heading out with the mollies (mum online) I cant wait i havent seen them in yonks!! Here i come house special chow mein nyom nyom

Day 35.... Skippers hiding place!

After prancing around the kitchen when we leave her in and making sure she hits every tile on her way in, she tucks up in behind the stove!!! Wrapped about the legs of it and snores her little brains out!!! She also know this is the only place in the house she can go and Jack cant get her!

Monday, February 7, 2011

Day 34.... Loopers!!

Off out spinning around yesterday we pulled up at the beach, only to see these 4 lunatics going in on the body boards!!! The howling wind and torential rain weren't stopping these!! Had to be seen to be believed haha

Day 33.....Worn out from his big day

Linda and Harry took Jack to the cinema today, he loved it, ran out the door and blew me a kiss, He is never away from us and after the wedding and the trama of starting the creche in september he hasnt left our sights!! Linda offered last week and we thought seeing as we need him to be more indepandant from us and also need him to be ok when i go to hospital we said we'd give it a go. We didnt realise how happy he would be to head off with them!!! By the time he came home full of stories of the cinema and what Harry and Linda got him he was fit for bed!!! He crashed out, and i just had to take this picture of his little face!!!

Day 32....Weather!!

This weather is just mental!!! Our poor trampoline wasnt any match for it! I've also learned today that a shopping trolley full of stuff and the wind are not a good combo! This weather is good for nothing only sitting in by the fire!

Friday, February 4, 2011

Day 31....Who ate all the pies??

Meee!!!! Here i am at 28 weeks, Sometimes DS says my belly is too fat and sometimes he says its too hairy, but today he didnt mind so much! We have been referring to the baby as baby fireman sam, i think unless this baby arrives with a fire hose and a yellow helmet Jack might be a bit disapointed, maybe its time to start thinking of real names!! I cant wait to meet our newest member of our family!! Its so exciting to think we will be back to breast feeding and nappies in no time!!! We cant wait, and i definetly cant wait to see Jacks face when they meet for the first time!

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

Day 30.....Easy dinners

Not a lot of effort needed but it was yum!!!! And seriously is there anything better than some baby pops and real butter!!! Its a good thing i made enough for tomorrow!!!

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Day 29.... First day of Spring

Yeahhhhhh after a LONG winter we have some sun and heat!! Who'd have thought!! Jack got to play outside-the first time since about November id say, he is wrecked now!! Woohoo early to bed. It was such a lovely day and nice to see some colour in his cheeks from all his running around!
