#4.0 Sunday ramblings

Morning all! ⭐️

Just posting a quick update of where I’m up to this weekend.

What I wanted to achieve this weekend:

  • Progress with my one & only active cross stitch project

I have done a little bit more, I’ll share my progress in the next day or so & see if you can guess what it is yet!

  • Read more of my book (Times of Convert by Deborah Harkness) I’m currently on page 245. Ideally I want to reach pg350 by Sunday night

I’m on page 270, so progress has been made but not quite there yet.

  • Attend afternoon tea (Saturday)
  • Attend hospital tour (Sunday)

Booked in for 9:30am this morning

  • Get my nails done (Sunday)

Booked in for straight after the hospital tour. I’m a little nervous about this one. It’s with an old work colleague rather than my usual name place. I don’t think I’m great st small talk! You forget how annoying it is when you move house that the simplest routine stuff needs to change.

  • Reading & practice more of my hypnobirthing book

I did a little bit yesterday, but didn’t practice. Definitely going to practice some of the relaxation before bed.

  • Unpack at least one more box (Front room or bedroom- I’m not picky!)

Smashed this one! If only I could get the house to look more tidy & organised!

  • Fit some rest in there somewhere?!

I’m up super early this morning. I was struggling during the night with heartburn. I’m also at that point where I can find a relatively comfortable position to sit or sleep in but it becomes uncomfortable as soon as I need to move. I think baby is doing fine though. Had a few reassuring kicks this morning telling me he was awake!

So that’s a very brief update on where I’m up to with my weekend goals! Now I’m off to hunt down some breakfast before I go freak out at the hospital a little!

I hope you all had a productive day yesterday! Did you read, stitch, chill? Whatever you did let me know ☺️

#3.0 Afternoon tea, baby clothes & books

Evening all!

I probably should find a more social time to post other than after 10pm, but it seems to be the only time I can get round to posting.

Tonight’s just a quick post about today’s comings & goings. Today has been a productive & happy day ☺️ I hope you can all say the same on what was a pretty miserable Saturday.

This morning my husband put the first layer of paint in our bedroom & I unpacked a few boxes which is something to tick off the to-do list for this weekend. I also managed a little light reading of my Hypnobirthing book.

Then this afternoon we went for a drive to meet up for a friends 30th birthday. Afternoon tea in Clitheroe. It was really good! I’m still full from it now ☺️

On the way back from afternoon tea we stopped in the Trafford Centre to get a few bits & stretch my legs. I’ve found since luke passed his driving test in October that I barely walk at all anymore! That & with my cankles I really struggle so I’m trying to make every effort to be as mobile as possible. I definitely felt it after our walk round the TC. Lower back pain sucks!

Anyhow, whilst we were out I got a few items in prep for baby – disposable underwear, bottoms up spray, nappy rash cream…I also got this ADORABLE outfit which I’ve decided is going to be his ‘coming home’ outfit 😍😍😍

Isn’t it too cute?! I’m so in love with it!!

As a treat I also stopped off in Waterstones (I can never resist!) and picked up a few books for the to read pile. I’ll share a list of them in the next few days.

Finally, tonight when I’ve got in I’ve just chilled with a film ‘Unknown’ and my cross stitch.

Not a bad day all round really! Oh, I also fired off a few posts on my book club page about reading challenges for this year & voting for books to read in Feb. I’ll post more on that later!

I hope you’ve all had a good day & most the most of it.

Sleep well & bring on Sunday 🌟 xxx

#2.0 Getting back on it

Hi all! Happy Friday! I hope you’re all looking forward to a relaxing weekend!

This weekend I’ve got a few plans, afternoon tea tomorrow for a friends birthday & a hospital tour on Sunday morning. Tonight I’m home alone for a few hours.

Without any hesitation my plan for tonight was to binge Netflix & possibly get my xstitch on.

Firstly, to select my viewing. For a change I loaded amazon prime & spotted that Bones is available to watch!! I’ve always wanted to watch it so I’m pretty pleased with that.

So my Friday night has so far been taken up watching 4-5 episodes of Bones. I quite like the main characters & I’m enjoying reminiscing about my teenage crush on David Boreanaz. *swoon*

Ive also been able to muster some energy to pick up some cross stitching again! (Yay) it’s probably been about a year since I’ve done some solid stitching so feeling pretty smug. I took a picture to show off & realised it looks like I’ve barely done anything! 😳

What do you think I’m stitching at the moment? This is approx 5 hours in. Post in the comments what you’re guessing this is?

I can tell it’s been a while since I’ve stitched because my hands are stiff & my progress slow! (That & I already have fat preggo hands)

UPDATED: What I want to get done this weekend 💪🏻

  • Progress with my one & only active cross stitch project
  • Read more of my book (Times of Convert by Deborah Harkness) I’m currently on page 245. Ideally I want to reach pg350 by Sunday night
  • Attend afternoon tea (Saturday)
  • Attend hospital tour (Sunday)
  • Get my nails done (Sunday)
  • Reading & practice more of my hypnobirthing book
  • Unpack at least one more box (Front room or bedroom- I’m not picky!)
  • Fit some rest in there somewhere?!

That’s probably more than enough for a 2 day weekend. That & I tire so much more easily at the moment.

What do you want to achieve this weekend? Are you a stitcher, if so, what are you working on at the moment?

I hope you all have a happy & productive weekend.

Thanks for reading. Kim xx

#11 TBT Cross Stitch *09.04.15*

Hi there,

Above is my TBT post of the week! It’s a small project I completed for one of my best friends. I always feel bad that I can’t name the designer, but I can tell you it’s another design I used from one of my cross stitch magazines!

The more I post these TBT posts, the more I feel like I need to somehow keep a log of where I got the design from & who designed it! How do you do this? Any smart ideas?

When you stitch, who/what do you stitch for? I really enjoy stitching for other people… It gives me purpose & I love handing over a handmade gift… It usually means so much more! Saying that… I can’t decide if I’ll stitch this particular friend a gift again… I was in her room recently & couldn’t see this anywhere! I half thought it would have pride of place somewhere! Silly me!

My other reason I’m feeling this way is because recently I stitched her a card & she left it in the pub! 😦

So yeah, one more day at work until my weekend can begin! Saturday has been left free just to stitch 🙂

Happy stitching 🙂
