Yeah very funny, guys...

The Great Auditors of the Universe have a sense of humour, it would seem... Pers was carsick in the taxi 2 minutes away from where we needed to be for the wedding and we had to turn around and come home, thus missing the wedding.

I'm laughing on the inside, but at least it wasn't my waters breaking... Maybe if I laugh a little harder...

Oi! You! Out!

Ok, so today's my due-date (yeah, I know...blah blah blah) and eviction orders have been issued. To sweeten the deal for Fate, we are off to a Chinese wedding today.

Yes I know you will all be laughing with me if I hope what dosen't happen, happens (just to put it out there so that the Great Auditors of the Universe hopefully hear me and decide to get their A's into G).



There is no place like home...

If only I could just click my heels together three times and return to Oz.

Strangely, I have been feeling a little homesick again lately and it dosen't quite make sense. All these really cool things have been happening back home... Rowany Festival, which sounds (and looks) like it was lovely this year, the Laurellings of two people who I love and admire and are friends of mine - Ms Bethan and Ms Hunydd. The Court Barony for Mr. Fzit, the wedding of MegnSnerg, The Dinghy's 3rd birthday. We weren't there for any of it and that's a total bummer.

Don't get me wrong, I am not begrudging my mates good times just because we're not there, but my heart aches to join in, to give hugs and celebrate and be there for people who have been there and done those things for us.

Plus I'd kind of like to be home at the moment with Timeling expected any day now (God, let it be today!). I need my friends and family and they're not here. Feeling kinda ronery.

Ah well, rock on October, hey?

Not much really happening here, Mr C made strawberry jam yesterday. We figured we should make the most of the beautiful strawberries while they are still in season. Honestly people, you have never tasted anything like the strawberries here, they are an experience on their own!

Spring is here, the weather is warmer and the trees are green again. There is what I call 'fairy fluff' floating in the air. You could swear on first glance that it's snowing. Then your sinuses kick in... Still, it's nice to see all the kids in the playground again and also nice to not be wearing several layers of clothing. Spring happens so fast here, you don't seem to have a build up to it, it's just suddenly green oh and pink and red. You should see all the blossoms!

And yes, then there's Timeling, of which we can confirm that there is definately only one, waiting to hatch. Saturday is our due date and at last check (Thursday just gone) it wasn't looking like it was going to happen anytime soon. If I am not progressing any further this Thursday, we will talk about our options. It is quite possible that another c-section will be in order and actually, I am quite ok with that (and yes, I do know what it means).

So today, I think I will head off for another swim and make some ANZAC biscuits and probably sleep, sleep like the wind...

You know, I think I've figured out exactly what I want to do when I get back home to Oz. I want to be a marriage celebrant. It's something I've been thinking about for ages now and it seems to sit really well with me. Might just store that in the back of my mind for now, but if it is still calling me, I think I might do something about it when we get home.

Can haz brain back now plz?

Yeah, I know... postings of any real substance are pretty thin on the ground.

a)No brainspace. My sinapses have hormonal interference. Gosh. That was a big werd.
b)Exhausted. Not sleeping. Nauseated again. I could sleep for a million years, if only I could sleep.
c)Apathetic. Yeah. Like. Whatever.
d)Brain taken up with thoughts of baby and birth process. And pretty much nothing else.
e)I feel like Nanny M's prize brown cow, what with being patted on the belly constantly by well meaning mad chinese women and by obstetrician. Gosh. Another big werd.

Will write something sooner or later. But for now, I sleep... yes... sleeeeeeeeeeep.

Happy Birthday, Little Bear...

I can't believe you're 3 already!

We have a great day planned today: presents, phonecalls, Skype, cake, quack and lots and lots of cuddles!


Her first birthday, christening and first steps! My, what a big day that was!

Just before her 2nd birthday... we had just moved to China

I took this photo of Miss Mermaid on Friday. She is obsessed with mermaids (and that fabric, which she had to sleep with).

Mental note to self...

When you hand over SCA website maintainence responsibilities, make sure you remove yourself as the contact for webminister so you don't get hassled for information you handed on to the next webminister and have washed your hands of a year or more ago...

Sheesh, people!

Don't bug me, go bug Del.

Why do I feel so nervous? Parte the Second

Because yesterday when I went to see the obstetrician, he said I needed to have my baby by the 1st of May. Because that's when he gets on an airplane to go home to Oz for a holiday.

That's why.

No pressure, or anything!

Why do I feel so nervous?

The Bloke's buggered off down south for a business trip, that's why.

So far, no labour!
