I ended up having to work on saturday! Boy, that was a shock to my big pregnant system!! hehe! It was good to get a bit of $$! And I was kinda like 'putty'... i just filled in the gaps that needed doing! And on sunday I cleaned my parents accommodation - the Cuckoos Nest at the Swiss Cottage - because i knew i just wasn't up to another day of waitressing! Its funny, no one calls me 'small' anymore! But i guess with a gut like this (see photo below) how can you??!! LOL
Sunday was my Mum's 50th birthday.. all the family spoilet her - she deserves it!!!! Matty and I got her a $200 shopping voucher and a toilet travel bag filled with all the toiletries she needs for when she goes to Switzerland (her home country) in august/september this year!
Here is my mum with the birthday cake my brother organised from his friend (its gluten free as my mum has coeliac disease, like me!)
L-R: Evelyne, Jason, Me, Mum, Kristy, John (my brother), Dad & SianyFor dinner Dad took us to a lovely restaurant in Leura called Silks. Here we are at dessert time... yummy! Matty came up from Narrabeen after work that evening! It was good to have the whole family together, you'd think it would be easy to get 6 people together at the same time.. but it really isnt! lol
L-R: Dad, Me, Matty, Siany, John and the Birthday Girl!Here's Mum and Dad... Matty and I...
Now im back in Narrabeen (home) with Matty! And we are so excited, one of my mum's friends has lent us her childrens' cradle for our little one... so I got it all ready today, it was so fun making the bed...
Its beautiful!! I cant wait to have a baby in it!!
Also the other day Matty and I were just watching teli and I thought I saw something move on the balcony... and yes indeed, I did... there was an Owl, just sitting there!!!! It was pretty dark, this is the best photo I got of it. Pretty impressive anyways! Its not everyday we see an Owl!Lastly, a *big* thank you to Lisa for awarding me the Arte Y Pico award! I was really touched by the kind words she wrote about me!!! Thanks Lisa!!!
I also know some blogs that deserve this award... here is one that is definately worthy...
