The last cabbage

Good grief!
It's January...Happy New Year!
Thank-you for all those lovely comments you folks left, I just love reading them.
I must apologise for the lack of visits and comments to all your wonderful blogs, and the lack of response to emails. I'm afraid these last few weeks before baby comes have been very, very draining. I had it confirmed that I'm very anaemic, (I knew knew it!), very common for pregnant ladies, but my goodness it can knock you for six!
We are still in the throws of building the kitchen, re-arranging and decorating upstairs, having carpet fitted...I still have no washing machine...ugh.
BUT! The end is in sight, thanks to the sterling efforts of Mr Nick and his dad!
You know when you just want everything sorted though? And you have to sort out a million things frst before you can sort just one thing out?
I'll stop moaning now, hee hee!

In other news!!!
I finished "Coconut Jack", the book I was working on up until last week! I had a job to do for "Mother & Baby" magazine, a few loose ends to tie up, but I can proudly say...It's all finished! Yipeeee!
I also (sadly), wrote to the surveyors who deal with the Thorpe allotments and officially ended my tenancy :0(
Above is my last ever crop...I'm afaid I was too tired to do anything with it, so it ended up in the compost. Still, at least we got a photo, and what a whopper!

I managed to do a little stitching the other day, and as soon as I can find the camera, I'll post a piccy.

AND!!!! Guess what! Myrtle has moved to Georgia, in America! Isn't that just soooo exciting!

Well, I've got to go and empty some more boxes now, so will type again soon.

Take care all,

Goodness Erica, there's me thinking Dr Who was off our screens at the moment! No wonder you have been off the blog, but good news that you have tied up all the loose ends before baby arrives. I hope you get the DIY finished soon and a washing machine back, a main essential for you soon, and hope you get the anaemia sorted, as this can make you feel really tired. x
