Where Has The Week Gone?
I can't believe it's be so long since I last posted. After thinking Grace was on the mend the last time I wrote, we ended up having a horrendous week with us all being unwell. Fortunately we were back to ourselves in time for Easter so we could get stuck into some yummy chocolate.
As for Easter itself, apart from a roast dinner at Mum's on Easter Sunday, ours was relatively quiet. The main thing we accomplished over the Easter break was doing lots of gardening in our backyard. Lots of plants we had transferred had shrivelled due to the scorching hot weather Perth had over the past few months so we were on the hunt for things to replace those as well as lots of low height bushes and 'filling in plants'. Grace was very eager to help water in all our new plants and enjoyed plodding around in her new pink gumboots that you can see in the photo above. Our gardening was perfectly timed as over the last few days, we've had a few lovely showers of rain.
To top off our Easter break, I had a wonderful day yesterday in the city yesterday shopping with a friend while Paul minded Grace. We both scored some bargains and I was especially excited to now have some 'stretchy' clothes to accomodate my growing belly. I found a wonderful longer length top in Witchery which is the ideal material for anyone who is pregnant, a singlet for layering from Country Road, a pretty pale pink ruffly top from Kookai, some flat boots that I plan on living in during winter and some wonderful maternity jeans from Jeans West (I had no idea they did maternity jeans until my friend said so and what a bargain they were at only $70 compared with usual priced maternity jeans).
Now I'm off to catch up on everyone else's posts to see what you've all got up to over the Easter period (with a compulsary cuppa and some Easter eggs nearby of course!)
