ABOVE:   the change mat is a generous size... I wanted it to be big enough for a baby for a long time...

ABOVE:  all my hard work yesterday resulted in these... a Funky Nappy Bag with matching Change Mat.  AND the mat has a plastic/rubber type of inner so it's waterproof!  It took me ages to make the mat... cos I quilted it all too.  And I only had a small amount of the fabrics, so I think I did well to get it done using what I had.

Stew's back at work today ...whoops, no he's not!  It's Auckland Anniversary Day! ... and I am on the 'count down' until the kids go back to school... 3 MORE SLEEPS!  I suppose I should check out their uniforms and make sure they still fit... bla bla bla.


*waves*.. HI!  we didn't stay home as expected... we went to Hamilton for the day.... firstly to pick up a T-shirt for Blondie in Taupo and secondly to visit the girls.

We had a lovely day... lunch at Chartwell Square with Kelly and Rena then over to see Amanda and Andrew... I must show you Amanda's belly!

ABOVE:  she has only 3 weeks to go and she's HUGE!  But the baby is only expected to be around 7-8 pounds.  Phew.... still a big belly.  She is at the "I'm totally over it" stage... poor girl.

I took a photo of Kelly and Rena too... Rena had a new haircut.  It took my breath away... and Stew's .... will show you tomorrow! 

It was a tiresome trip home... we literally crawled for over half the time... holiday traffic was diabolical.

Off to bath Coco now, she was sick last night and stinks something awful.  *sigh*

End of Day: another week about to start... a GREAT week... three more sleeps...
DIET: so-so today.
nite nite.
