Hello :) I have badly neglected this blog, for a combination of reasons. I have lost the key to my studio, where I like to take my pictures, so I've been locked out, I was ill for some time, worked lots, had a busy christmas etc etc... but Im back now!! (though still haven't found my studio key) sorry for being gone so long...

Christmas was lovely. I spent lots of time with family, ate far too much and was spoilt with lots of lovely gifts. I was given lovely jewelry, pretty clothes (mainly cardigans as they can be worn with bump and post bump!), bits and pieces like photo frames and ornaments for when my David and I finally get our own house (hopefully very soon), lots of pampering toiletries and lots of chocolate!! My craving for chocolate during pregnancy has been ridiculous, so I can't tell you how excited I was to be given so much! Even little Lily was given some lovely presents and she isn't even here yet! I have a feeling friends and family are going to spoil her lots!

I think my favourite present this Christmas was actually a present for my mother. She got a puppy!!! Little  Milly, who is just the cutest little thing ever! She is adorable and so affectionate, always wanting cuddles :) Some of you may know the childrens TV program 'Come Outside' from the 90's? with Aunt Mable and Pippin? Our Milly is the grandaughter of Pippin! :)

As you can see, I am now rather huge!! It is only 8 weeks until our little Lily Belle is here! It is scarily close and so exciting. I am now on maternity leave and trying to get everything ready for her arrival, which is so surreal. I can't believe our little girl is going to be with us soon!

Oh, and a late happy new year to you all!! I was far too tired to go to any new years parties, so watched fireworks from our conservatory in my pyjamas instead! My new years resolutions are:

1. To get my little girl here safely, and do everything in my power to make sure she is happy, healthy & safe
2. To get a home with my David for our little family
3. To apply for a PGCE and find a job that will help me get some experience in a school
4. To lose my baby weight
5. To keep on making my art and jewelry and not let it get forgotten

How were your Christmases and new years? I feel very out of the blogging loop, I must catch up with all your posts!
