Hello lovelies, it's been a while since I've written one of these, and if you don't follow me on social media or my other blog, you might not know about all the crazy things going on in my life right now and over the past few months. So here's some pictures to show you what's been going on :)
Over the past few months, the hubby has been amazing getting everything ready for the baby (more on that in the next post), but yesterday he ran his 2nd Cardiff 10k. Because of all the baby prep he wasn't able to train as much, but he only missed his last time by a few mins, I'm so proud of him :) This is a pic of him just after completing it :) Next up for him the Mens Health challenge at the end of the month - he'll have his work cut out for that, it's 13k and an assault course!
Here in Cardiff we've also just had the NATO summit, and what total cray cray that was! Steel fences everywhere, roads blocked off or put to 1 lane, 10k policeman walking around, including ones with machine guns! And we had HMS Duncan (our newest destroyer) docked down the bay with a frigate and a mine sweeper - we were well protected!
Also, when Obama was on his way to Cardiff Castle for dinner, he (and other delegates) flew over our house :) That was pretty cool.

This is what's been mostly going on in my life, preparing for Squidge's arrival. As of today, I'm 35 weeks pregnant, and they're planning on inducing me at 38 weeks, so only 3 weeks to go! It's been a mad rush to get the nursery finished (close to done now) and everything in the house ready. Tomorrow is my last day before I start my annual leave & maternity (weds) and I can't wait! Working has become very tiring, just doing simple tasks like blogging really takes it out of me, so much rest is needed. If you're interested in following my journey, head over to www.mummy-pixie.com which is where I write weekly updates and blog all about the baby :)

So that's pretty much been my life over the last few months - get the bedroom done, then the nursery and now we have tonnes of stuff to sort out that had been kept in both rooms. I hope you don't mind this kind of post, I do them from time to time and I always enjoy writing them :)
