Birthdays and announcements

This week my terrific two turned 4 years old. I am not good at cake decorating, but Octonauts was the request so my husband and I set to work, and this is the final product. Probably my best cake to date.
This is an 'Octopod' which unless you have a 2-5yr old you would never have heard of :)

and this is Kwasi!! Not too bad huh.

Then this is my excuse for not blogging as much as I should be.

Do you watch Grand Designs??

What happens when they build a one bedroom adult masterpiece,

they always fall pregnant?

So what about when you build a 4 bedroom house, with 3 children already??

So we decided to do our final IVF whilst the house was being done. I mean if it is good enough for Grand Designs it must be good enough for us.

And it was!!!

Blogger hates me today and I can't turn the pic to show you bubba number 4 for us!!
The morning sickness, and exhaustion have been horrid. Plus managing all the small aspects of the build.
But we are close, and very happy!!

So building work still to go

*ballustrades on the North corner
* rear and front stairs
* repair kitchen floor (additional cost)
Tiling work starts Monday
Bathroom fit-out next week

and masses of interior painting.

Then work for us is the under floor insulation when they are finished, and shutters on the large front windows, plus window dressings for energy efficiency stars!!

We are hoping to be looking at moving in mid-September, fingers crossed!!

I'll try and get some pictures for you this week.


  1. Congratulations! I don't know how you manage to do it all, especially whilst having morning sickness.

  2. For some reason I completely missed this post and your most recent one as well. So surprised and excited for you about another bubba on the way. How on earth have you been tackling a major reno and ivf at the same time you CRAZY woman? Not to mention damn good Octonauts cakes- Roboboy also had a GUP birthday cake and mini cupcakes of all the characters and it was a major hit. Matilda is looking superb by the way. melx

  3. Congratulations. I missed out seeing this news as well. Look after yourself. Loving the progress on your house too. xx
