Wow Gentoo - that's a lot to do while pregnant. I'm glad it all worked out for you. Vancouver is beautiful isn't it? I'm a country girl but I think Vancouver is the only city in the world that I've been to that I'd be happy to live in. Nice lifestyle. What a worry with food poisoning, that would be yuck!! Bubs are definitely well protected in there though.
Go LilaJ! The marathon certainly sounds like a great, positive thing to be doing. In the meantime, I hope the TTC marathon works beautifully for you too this month!
Congrats on the job Debstar. I'm pleased to read that it feels right. It will be really important to have a good, positive place to be over the next few months.
Still thinking of you and your embies MrsErinR. Hope you had some success with freezing. If not, I'm sending lots of positive thoughts to the little one hopefully growing well with you.
Well, I'll probably be offline for a little while now. We're moving out to our farm this weekend and I haven't arranged phone, internet etc out there yet. Our house sale here in town settles next week so I can't wait to be in one place, not two. I'm very excited to be making the move but there is still SO much to do! Hubby has been working on the cottage from 5am until midnight every day to get it ready while I've been packing the house here and moving what I can. It's looking fantastic though and I'm thrilled that after 5 years of restoring the old place and dreaming of the lifestyle it will finally be a reality. Amazing what can happen quickly when it has to!!
We'll be living somewhat rustic for a while as we're still making doors, waiting on some of the timber windows to be finished etc. But hubby assures me it will be snake proof, rodent proof and water proof so I'm happy with that! The timber floors are being finished today (this is hubby's trade so of course it's the last thing he gets around to!!) and then it's all go. He's cooking me dinner in our new kitchen tomorrow night for our first night on the farm.
We always talk about the families that have raised their kids in that tiny original cottage, built in 1854 out of stone from the farm. The original cottage is 3 rooms, nothing else. Now we've restored it stone by stone and added on our extension and we'll make our own life there. We reckon 80 acres of land is also a kids paradise for our little ones!
Well enough of my prattle. Can you tell I'm excited??? So hopefully I'll be back in touch soon when I catch up with technology in the new place!
