Easter, the bump & my last weekend at work...

Well, what a *busy* weekend I've had!!Being Easter weekend.. my family always work... so we all worked together (like every other year, for the last few anyways) but there was something a little different this year.. its my last weekend working up in the mountains for my parents.

Lets start with Easter..

We actually gave our gifts and had a really yummy dinner which mum cooked on good friday at about 3:30pm (before work). Matty was in Sydney, working and spending time with his parents who are visiting from NZ!

My Mum decorated the table all nicely with gifts that my grandmamy sent over from switzerland... My grandmamy knitted us all a pair of socks and a woollen beanie for our eggs! I love the socks my grandmamy knits, they are awesome!!

Here is Siany, My brother John and me with our socks! Oh, and I bought my brother the bunny ears bonnet he is wearing - HAHAHHA!

We all gave eachother gifts of yummy easter eggs... the baskets on the table are from mum and dad, they always spoil us! thanks!! :)
The rest of Easter was spent working! Its a very busy weekend for us in the restaurant! But we always have good fun too, plus we give all the customers easter eggs, so the atmophere is great and everyone is happy!!

Its been a while since i've had a photo taken of my "bump", the last time was at 26weeks. NOW im 31 weeks, and woah! What a difference! Im getting BIG!!
So here are a couple of photos...

the bump @ 31 weeks...
Look at my mum's fridge... she painted it so it can be used as a chalk board! My brother drew the baby on the bottom of the fridge, hehehe!

Today was my last day working at The Swiss Cottage Restaurant! The place where i've been living since I was 10 years old! Ive practically worked there since I was 10 years old too!!
I did leave for three years, but i've been working there for the last 4 years, so it will be weird not driving the 2 hour drive up from Sydney to work every weekend! I will miss the job and the people, because both are fantastic! It can be hard to work for family.. but i think we are a bloody good family! We all get on well and working in a kitchen (full of knives... ) we have all survived!! hahahaha!

A HUGE thank you to Mum and Dad for being so generous to me through out the past 4 years working there, I know I was doing you a favour, but you did a huge one for me too! And thank you for the generous parting gift (Money for a good vacuum cleaner, and a photo shoot with a big photographer to take photos of the bump pre-cooked and then delivered!) THANK YOU!!!

Here are some piccies of my last day...

Hi there,
Great to read you had a fun time. You bump is growing very well and looks like the little baby inside is doing well. Now just take your time and relax. Enjoy the last weeks of your pregnancy and rest, rest, rest. Sounds funny, I know, but as working mom with two kids I know how it is.

Lots of love, es

You look so cute with your little belly Jess! Looks like you have so much fun with your family. So are you going to take this time to rest now before the baby comes?

Siany said...

*bye jess*!! It was a great weekend for you to finish on! Hope you enjoyed it! *Happy Easter* Your grandmas socks are so beautiful (and warm!).
Good luck for the rest of your pregnancy! Your belly is looking so big and round!! Cant wait to see it in a few more weeks and then... the gorgeous bubba!!
