We don’t actually own a TV, so the only tv I watch is online (mostly iview). This week a show came up on ivew that got me feeling inspired. Kirstie’s Vintage Home (made in the UK, so if you are in the UK you may have seen it already). It’s about transforming peoples homes from messy and drab, to gorgeous and stylish. And in an inexpensive way, by using vintage finds and handmaking things. Totally me!!
Since we are moving house VERY soon, it got me inspired and motivated to make our home look great without needing to spend much. And with a baby on the way, and pouring nearly all our savings into the house deposit, we don’t exactly have much spare to spend on decorating our house. So watching this got me inspired to get creative with the things we already have and a few inexpensive extra bits. After all I do have a lot of crafting and making skills, so why not put them to good use!! (Not to mention the piles of fabric and craft materials I horde away).

While looking for some things on Etsy, I came across ‘Seventh Tree Soaps‘. An Aussie soap seller, who has gorgeous packaging!! I love the way she presents her products, so pretty. And wonderful to see someone making pretty soaps that I can buy! As I don’t know how customs would be about importing soap. These would make such gorgeous gifts.

We are half way now! And I had my anatomy scan. They checked everything, and so far the baby looks to be developing well and healthy. Which is so good. And we found out we are expecting a BOY! I was having warm relaxing bath the other night, and i started to feel him move about, so I put my hand on my stomach, and boom I felt a kick!! He’s rather cheeky though as often when I try to feel it he stops moving, making it very hard to see if Dan can feel him, but I’m sure once those kicks get harder and more frequent, he will get a chance to feel it. It was our wedding anniversary yesterday, and we went out for a lovely dinner. My cheeky boy kept moving about while I ate steak but then settled down once we got to dessert. He must like steak!

Today is our one year anniversary! In some ways the time has gone fast, in other ways, I look back and can’t believe how much we have done together in that time. And soon we will be moving into a house we own!! And I am 20 weeks pregnant, with a little boy on the way. To think this time last year, I was nervously getting getting ready to walk down the aisle.
