Building the nursery – a picture story

A daunting prospect

 

 

But, after a short tea break, Rod got stuck in

Fifteen minutes later, the cot was standing

17 minutes later it was also a changing station

It involved glue and some screwing, but the glider chair didn't take too long either

Then, from the last box, fell these two bags...

...so I left him with these little babies lined up and went out for lunch

As if by magic, this was waiting for me when I got back

(In case you’re wondering, the furniture all came from John Lewis – wardrobe, Rachel cot, cot top changer and glider chair. We chose the delivery day and slot (7am-2pm)¬†and they delivered everything at 11am on the dot! Would definitely recommend them for choice, value for money and customer service.)

(And no – this is not a sponsored post. I wish.)

Being thankful on Thanksgiving (even tho I’m British)

I just read a lovely blog post here written by a woman who has moved from London to New York and who’s celebrating her first Thanksgiving. She said: “Taking time to really appreciate what you have is something I certainly feel I benefit from.” I totally agree. So here are some things I’m thankful for:

  • A healthy pregnancy
  • My husband (in general)
  • My husband’s boss, who’s recognised Rod’s 15 months of hard slog commuting to Edinburgh and working 11 hours a day, 6 days a week, by promoting him and letting him be based in Glasgow.
  • My great circle of family and friends who always support me

I don’t take any of that for granted, but today, especially, I appreciate them all.

What are you thankful for?
