Current Shame - Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Watching the tennis. Lusting after Roger Federer. Disliking his wife Mirka. Jealous.
Current Colour: White for the house. Grey - on the hunt for a charcoal fabric sofa. Yellow and red for the beach.
Current Drink: Water. Deep Spring flavoured mineral water. Does drinking Gaviscon count? I drink that EVERY day now. Having a breech baby this pregnancy has made my heartburn MUCH worse.
Current Food: Mexican food. Yoghurt and muesli. Paddlepops. Fish. Caprese salads. Pasta.
Current Favourite Show: Big Love Season 5 just started. About to start Boardwalk Empire too.
Current Wishlist: Tradies at the new house to work extra quickly. Kitchen designer to build kitchen perfectly and quickly. Also, for mother nature to give Australia a break with the extreme weather. Flooding, cyclones, heat waves... Enough is enough. I'm so thankful there are no serious bush fires this season. One of my biggest fears is fire.
Current Needs: Falling asleep quicker. The baby insomnia has kicked in, taking me over an hour to fall asleep most nights. Also, be gone; back ache, leg cramps, heart burn and boob sweat.
Current Triumphs: We finalised our kitchen design, new lights and fans througout the house, negotiated halving the cost of a new fence at the back of the house with our neighbours, have picked new internal doors and a new entrance door, all taps/toilets/fixtures have been ordered. The renovation is in FULL swing now.
Current Bane(s) of my Existence: Sore hips when I wake up in the morning, struggling to get in/out of my 4WD.
Current Celebrity Crush: Bear Grylls. A Scout, Explorer, Adventurer, Motivational Speaker, Father, just a really awesome guy.
Current Indulgence: Maltesers. Paddlepops.
Current #1 Blessing: Having my Mum and sisters help me out while I near the end of my 3rd trimester. Only 6 weeks to go. Here's what baby probably looks like. Except mine is BREECH!
Current Outfit: Birkenstock thongs, Haviana thongs, Croc ballet shoes, black jersey maxi dress, GAP singlets and anything with ELASTIC!
Current Excitement: Stating the obvious here. 34 weeks pregnant now. Almost on the home stretch. Baby kicking away and reminding me that we will be a family of 4 very soon. My sister has organised a baby shower for me in a few weeks. I didn't have one for Abigail because I lived in Singapore and didn't have a big circle of friends before she was born. I'm looking forward to a lovely afternoon surrounded by female friends and family.
Current Mood: Tired but excited about the baby. Anxious but relieved about the house.
