Hey bloggers, I am still alive and have a bit to catch up on but I want to first start with a very Happy Australia Day to my fellow Aussies.
Have had a quiet one at home, DH is on night shift and slept most of the day and is now back at work again - very Australian of him! Gotta make some money to buy the Vegemite... hehe... that's what we tell the kids!
Anyways, next update is about me... still baking this bubby - only 6 and a bit weeks to go. I have been having a few issues with my blood pressure, it keeps creeping up and staying up for no apparent reason. I have an appointment with an Obstetrician on Monday so hopefully we'll be able to work something out...
here's a 'selfie' of the bump, taken about a week ago. It's been really hot down here and I have to admit that it's not really bothering me all that much. When I was pregnant with my DD (also a March baby) the summer heat was a killer and I just hated it, but this time all I do is sweat :)
Now for the crafty side of things, last week one of my friends went into premature labour at 26 weeks with her twins, they are both girls, both just weighed a kilo each and are being little Aussie battlers! Unfortunately there was not enough humidi-cribs in Melbourne's major neonatal hospital so they (and then her the following day) were sent to Adelaide. It's such a ridiculous thing, she has another 4 kids here at home and Adelaide is an 8-9 hour drive. And to fly there you have to drive to Melbourne first which is a 2-3 hour drive anyway! Oh, and this is while there is a complete neonatal department sitting there unused as the government fill their own pockets and inflate their own heads!
So, here's the cards I just had to make. As a mother of twins - I want to let you all know that whilst there are some very cute twin images.... a card for EACH baby is very much appreciated! These days we all keep birth cards and bits and pieces.. it's a bit hard to split a card that is addressed to both babies!! Just an FYI for you all :)
These are both very similar to a Baptism card I made recently, I really liked the simple design and was able to keep the cards very similar....
