Chocolate banana cake which Leo and I made yesterday. I have already eaten nearly half of it!
Pot of Lady Grey in my new $4 op-shop tea pot, which fits the cosy I bought ages ago. Unfortunately my work day was interrupted by many trips to the loo - not entirely productive.
Rainy view from my sewing machine. I cannot tell you how lovely this autumnal weather is, I have been looking forward to it for so long. The heat has affected my shoe size considerably, I cannot fit into any of my handmade shoes, which makes me so sad, I am schlepping about in my Birki clogs/sandals - ENOUGH!
I fell over yesterday and landed on my crappy hand/wrist, so no shoemaking for me this week, it's just too darn sore. Instead I'm stitching 8 new belts, including this classic Queens spectrum.....
.....and also this metallic navy with a spectrum of international flowers - it's a beauty.
To be honest I've lost my mojo, I have been hit with a huge wall of tiredness and my grump factor has gone off the charts. My guess is that the Little Miss is using up all my iron; I feel so depleted, and am moving a bit like a sloth who has eaten a whole watermelon.
35 weeks today, I've been getting heaps of those pesky Braxton Hicks contractions, which are a bit alarming actually. Sometimes I time them, just to have an idea of what's going on - who knows when this child will decide that she's ready.
In a strange way I feel like I'm bidding farewell to parts of my life: the ability to get some work done, the full nights of sleep, and the independence of my 5 year old chap. I hope that I can still keep in touch with you all when the Little Miss is here, it's inevitable that I will be getting cabin fever this winter, such is the schedule of sleeping and feeding for little ones. I hope that I can remember how to breastfeed!
