It's been a while ...

Wow, I just thought I would look up my old blog and see if it was still there, and it is!  I was so amazed I felt I should log in and post something.  A lot has happened since my last blog, hopefully i can get this blog back on track!

Baby and not just wind!

I felt my baby move properly for the very first time today. I was laying in bed this morning on my side. As I went to turn over onto the other side I felt a movement in my tummy and the a little section to the right below my bell button went rock hard. It felt so strange but I was able to get S to feel it! It only lasted for about 15 seconds but it was definitely baby movement! I think it may have got stuck mid-roll. People keep asking me if I can feel movement but I keep having to reply that I think I do, but I’m not sure if it is baby or just wind. Now I can say I have properly felt it!

The big freeze

Well we didn't have a white Christmas, but we certainly had some new year snow. Sussex was well and truly hit by the wintry weather and Worthing got a good smattering of snow. So when snow stops you from going to work, what else is there to do but build a snowman?

What a way to start the new year!

Despite feeling awful on New Years Day having come down with the dreaded cold that everyone had over Christmas, we still made it out for a walk on the seafront!

It was rather cold, but a hot chocolate in Costa soon warmed us up again!

Compliments all round!

Am well chuffed. We were down at the allotment today and one of the more seasoned Allotment-ers said our patch wasn't look too bad! Brilliant, all that hard work is paying off!

Today I was lucky enough to go and see Cirque du Soleil perform Varekai at the Albert Hall in London. It was totally amazing and would heartily recommend seeing them. I spent the whole performance on the edge of my seat as their performers swung from the rafters, bent themselves into all kinds of positions, threw each other around and generally looked brilliant in their costumes.

Thanks so much to Helen for talking me as her 'plus one', Helen's Aunt and Uncle for buying her the tickets for Christmas, and also to her whole family who I spent a lovely day with!

Give us a frown Freddie?

Over the festive period we had the chance to catch up with little Freddie. He has changed so much in 4 months and is looking like a proper little boy now. He has certainly become more aware of the people around him and has slipped into that shy stage which all kiddies seem to go through. He didn't seem too sure about me and when i tried to play with him, he looked as if he wasn't sure whether he should join in or cry at me. This is way different to how he was when I last saw him! I guess that is one of the problems with not seeing your family that often what with distance and all.

Something that did make me laugh was the fact that when anyone is taking a photo of him now, his new 'pose' is to strike a frown! As you can see, Freddie is frowning and Jenny is demonstrating!

He did lose the frown when Auntie Jane fed his chocolate from the Christmas Tree. We are soooo related!!!!

Shooting for all the family

Something else which seems to have the makings of a family Christmas tradition is Clay Pigeon Shooting. This year we managed to get Helen and Mum along with us.

And with a bit of persuasion we managed to get Mum gun toting as well as the rest of us!

It was cold, icy and foggy, but we had a fab morning, great bacon sarnie and even hit a few clays!
