Monthly Round-Up: January 2017

Lisa Comfort

I love the idea of doing this. It will be great to look back on and it is fun to write. Hope you enjoy reading it.

Sewing – lots of maternity hacks. You can see them here in my Second Trimester round-up.

Making
– our new bedroom nice. I have been putting the finishing touches in place. Will show it to you soon.

Cooking – more than usual. I’m not the chef in this house but had lots of friends over recently and made an effort.

Drinking
– boring squash, water and decaf tea!

Enjoying – my weekly pregnancy yoga classes – they are a highlight each week.

Hoping – I continue to feel as good as I do now for the rest of the pregnancy.

Loving – flowers – more than ever. I feel like these are going to be the things that get me through these darker months. So I am spending a bit more money on them each week and they lift my mood.

Hating – the dark mornings.

Buying – a few bits for the nursery now. Feel a bit nervous buying things too soon but for stuff that I know I definitely will need and if it is discounted then I have bought it!

Watching – Jackie, Lion and La La Land. I would recommend the latter. Jackie was a bit of a monologue – and her voice gets annoying. Lion is great when filmed in India but a bit drawn out in Australia. Erm also, when did Dev Patel get muscles??!

Sporting – my pastel coats. I have three favourite coats that I am alternating between and mixing up with my pastel scarves. Pink from Almost Famous (bought a few years ago), my Sew Over It 1960s Coat in mint green and my new New Look maternity grey coat.

Laughing – at Poppy. She has been in a funny mood recently and naughty with it. I can’t help but laugh. She ran off with my bra the other night when I was in the bath and as it is now quite an ample sized bra, she kept tripping up over it!

Admiring – Matt – he has had some great articles out already this year.

Thinking – non-stop. Can someone please switch my brain off.

Decorating – the nursery. Starting to finalise my ideas on how I want it to look.

Changing – my approach to work and trying to work shorter days.

Realising – I can’t be as active as normal and that’s OK. It’s hard though as I am a doer!

Planning – our trip to Scotland – taking a week off in February to go explore Edinburgh and beyond!

Doing – more swimming – trying to keep fit.

Needing – more food. Feels like I am growing a rugby team in there, not a baby.

Yearning – for chocolate and sweet things. All the time. Went to buy some dried fruit last night so not always reaching for the biccies!
