Don't you worry, I haven't gone anywhere since Boxing Day. Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last post both on the blog as well as your tweets and messages. It was great to read about how you've enjoyed being taken along on this crazy ride. I think the real fun is only just beginning, so hold on to your hats.
I'm now officially over 40 weeks. Only by a matter of days. But it's overtime nonetheless. Objectively, a few days in the scheme of things isn't that long but I think it's these last few days and the uncertainty of what's going to happen and when which make them tougher to get through. I hope this will be my only overtime post but we will see.
There's not much left to do around the house besides put my feet up as much as possible. The play mat's out, the jungle gym's assembled and I've had a test bounce of the Baby Bjorn rocker.

My mother in law is a curry puff making genius. She makes this amazing two part pastry that puffs and flakes on frying. I've been eating them for breakfast with a side salad of lettuce greens more often than not this last week....
|It runs in the family, guess what my mum's favourite snacks are? This is the stash she's going to take back to Perth.|
The sisters are also intrepid Sydney explorers and their adventures together are legendary. I sometimes feel that our roles are reversed when I've waited up for them at night. Jokes aside, having them both around when Baby SSG comes home will soothe many people's nerves, let me tell you. They're both pretty excited to be the two extra pairs of hands I'll definitely be needing.
My aunty knitted this adorable pram blanket for Baby SSG. It's almost too precious to use but too cute to be stored away.
I've made a start on Baby SSG's baby book. I'm going old school with the kind where you actually have to hand write memories, stick things to the pages and .... print out photographs. It's going pretty well actually. Each page is actually a cardboard pocket so I've finally got a proper place to put things like cards and test results. One of my favourite pages so far is one where you write a little snap shot of the world as it is now - current affairs, the price of items like a litre of milk, best selling books etc. I had no choice but to write 'Fifty Shades of Grey' in the book category. And I may have written a fair bit about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the current affairs section, as well as saving a few pages from New Idea....
I had a reader request for one last bump shot. And here it is.

|Today's fitness photo. Took this photo of a front garden in the neighbourhood whilst resting my back on the way up the slight hill on the way home.|
|The three musketeers.|
Or put a face on. I've got my routine down to 3 products now and they're all oldies but goodies. May I present my 3 Musketeers - Loreal's Nude Magique BB, Garnier's tinted roll on eye cream and a slick of Lucas' Pawpaw ointment on my lips.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
