The past two weeks

Hard to believe, but I’ve been off work on maternity leave for nearly two whole weeks now! Crazy. It doesn’t feel that long – probably because I’ve spent a very large proportion of that time resting and napping on the couch, haha. πŸ˜‰

So much for all those plans of sewing and the like. Maybe next week, since baby isn’t showing any signs of wanting to come out into the world now. As of tomorrow, the little creature is officially ‘over due’.

Want to see what I’ve been up to the last couple of weeks?

I got my hair cut into a ‘middy‘ type style. It’s quite a bit shorter than I was anticipating (eek!), but part of that will be the curl pulling it up. It’s a lot more even now, and I’m looking forward to trying to style it into 1940’s inspired ‘dos.

Steve and I went for a drive up Kapiti Coast last week for my birthday (he took the day off to spend it with me – ain’t that sweet?) I indulged in my favourite shop up there (Superminx) and one of my favourite footwear brands (Minx) and bought these little beauties.

Aren’t they adorable?!? How could I not get them – they’re apple green with little apples printed all over them! I’m looking forward to being able to fit back into my 1940’s and 50’s style outfits so I can wear these shoes in the way they deserve to be worn.

And here we have my current favourite pastime – hanging out on the couch with a book. I’m spending a heck of a lot of time here these days.

Along with a cat.

(Or two.)

Finally, just because the ‘bump’ is 40 weeks today, here’s a 40-week bump photo for posterity:
