Some of you are probably thinking I have dropped off the face of the earth! My posts have been few and far between these last few months and I did promise you I had a good reason.
From September to early November, I couldn’t even push myself to login to WordPress to read some of the fantastic blogs I follow. With the majority being food related, all the delicious sounding recipes and gorgeous pictures of food were a nausea inducing disaster zone to be avoided at all costs! Meals for me consisted mainly of sandwiches or cheese on toast, with dangerous consequences on the horizon if I had ever found we were low on bananas. The only things I really wanted to eat were those that my mum made for me during my childhood. It’s not so easy to pop round for tea when you are over 10,000 miles apart.
Three days after our arrival in Brisbane, Australia, my Husband and I were thrilled to find out that we were expecting our first baby! Having got married over the Easter weekend earlier this year and edging on ten years together I don’t think it was much of a surprise for our close friends and family who we were super excited to share the news with.
I’ve also been keeping myself busy volunteering with the RSPCA at the sorting centre for their Brisbane Op Shops – that’s charity shops to us non Aussies! It’s great to be doing something to help out and I have met some really friendly locals there too.
I’ll have some posts coming up for some cute DIY decorations I have been making for the nursery as well as some free printables I’ve been busy creating to frame and place up in our new home.
Until then, I hope you are all enjoying the festive season! It’s certainly strange experiencing a Queensland December!
