Week One of holidays...

Hi everyone!!
Well, the restaurant is closed for our annual holidays and this was the 1st week! As you know (from my post below) my 1st day off I met up with Daria and had a good time! Then on the thursday I went to the hospital to see the midwife for a check up! All is well! The heartbeat is strong, i've put on 6kg and my blood pressure is normal! So we are very happy and hope the rest of the pregnancy is all normal and healthy too!
Here is a piccie of my 'bump'...
Then on Friday My brother and Siany came down to visit for the day! We had planned a scrapping day so my brother John, brought some dvds to watch so he wouldn't get too bored! But i think he was more entertained in feeding the six cockatoo's that came to visit our balcony in the afternoon!! lol!
Sian and I were very productive and created a few layouts each! Here is one of the layouts I created about being 26 years old...
"26"
It was fun swapping our products with eachother and just being able to scrap together! They ended up staying for dinner - Spag Bol with Gluten Free Pasta (sorry about that bit guys!! lol). Siany also took some piccies of Matty and I and the bump as the centre focus...
Then on saturday morning I met up with my friend Bec and we planned on going for a swim at Balmoral Beach but the weather wasn't very nice! Matty, Mikey and Kato were doing THIS race in middle harbour, which Matty and Mikey won! So that was exciting! We went and met up with them once they were finished, and ofcourse, the sun came out then too!! hahaha!
That night, Matty, Me, Bec, Kato & Mikey drove out to the veledrome to watch the Cycling! I'd never been before! It was a fun night out! The commentator was so funny and it made it really good to watch as he expalined everything!
My favourite of the races was the 'Miss N Out' races where a whole bunch of cyclists start and each lap the last person past the line gets eliminated! This was made extra enjoyable to watch cos of the funny comentating!!!
Ofcourse, i didnt take my great SLR camera, just my point'n'shot camera that fits in my handbag so no photos really worked out! This was the best of the bunch...
Tonight Matty and I are leaving on a holiday! And um, I hear thunder rumbling! I hope it'll be nice weather at our destination!! So, i will be back in blog land in a few days once we get back!
Till then... have a happy day!!
Xx Jess
