I'm happy because I'm seeing one of my dearest friends today. Her sweetheart has arranged a surprise trip to our city for valentine's weekend, complete with romantic hotel, dinners etc. and lunch with me and my husband today!

I made her a little valentine's badge and one for me (pink for her, green for me). We're eating at one of my favourite South Indian restaurants - lovely, fresh and flavoursome food. I hope I'll enjoy it as much as usual: being pregnant has changed the way everything tastes, it's odd.

Apart from that I'll be working this weekend, but from home luckily. Wishing you all a happy weekend!

new life!

Remember I said I had some good news to announce? Well here it is, my baby bump in all its 21-week glory. Those who read this blog from its early days in the Autumn will know this is very much what my husband and I hoped for, so we're very excited. Our little boy - yup, it's a boy, kinda obvious from the scan! - will be born, all being well, in June this year.

Pregnancy is odd, because it's so exciting and I'm so very happy, and yet a lot of the time it's pretty uncomfortable, tiring and miserable (at least for me, I hear every experience is unique). I've thrown up an awful lot, had headaches and insomnia, felt exhausted and found it hard to keep up with things. I've also had some health scares, which made me anxious for a time. Luckily my husband is a truly wonderful person and has helped me through it all in his tireless, joyful way. We are very lucky people indeed.
