25 weeks

I can't really believe that I am 25 weeks already... this pregnancy seems to by flying... maybe it's because I'm too darn busy to pay any attention lol

This photo was taken by Paris today:

I'm feeling rather huge to be honest... and am measuring 5 weeks ahead.  This is because I have Polyhydramnios {google it if you must} which is excess amniotic fluid.  I will be having a scan at 28 weeks, to make sure there is nothing wrong with bubs that could be causing it, or whether it's just "one of those things"

no excuse

There is no realy excuse for why I have been so slack blogging lately... other than maybe - I'm tired... and I'm busy...

I just got home from another St John Camp for which I am one of 2 co-ordinators for, so you can only imagine how busy I have been the last few weeks...

I also have hit some medical hurdles with the pregnancy, which are leaving me drained {more on that another day}...

So while this post is boring - it's really just a sorry post... I'll be back real soon, I promse xx

Sushi Fun

I love Sushi! But I suck big time at making it... every attempt I have made in the last 5 years has resulted in mushed up, squased up, falling apart rice, meat and veg haha

So when I saw this wonderful Sushi tool at Stevens I HAD to have it... however, I didn't have the $40 at the time... just as well, because it's on special this week... $30... so I bought one...

Looks cool aye??

And so of course, I had to try it out immediately... I mean, I needed to make sure it worked ;)

Ingredients sorted

check out that perfect rice roll :)

and dinner is served!!

Nay's Chocolate Swap

Awhile ago, I signed up to be a part of Nay's Chocolate Swap... I love chocolate, so this seemed like a perfect swap for me...

As Renee had an odd number of people, this swap was more of a "pass it on" style swap, ie:

Person 1 buys for Person 2.
Person 2 buys for Person 3.
Person 3 buys for Person 1.
So the person buying for me was Helen from the UK.  Helen doesn't have a blog unfortunately so I am unable to direct you to her... but here's the wee stash she sent me:

I've taken two pics so you can kind of see it all... the Milky Way Magic Stars were such a hit with Cammy, that I have hidded the rest of the choccies and only eat them when he is in bed :)

The person I had to buy for was Benay from Japan I did a bit of reading on her blog before purchasing and sending her goodies to her, so I hope she likes :) I have had word from her in the last couple of days that she has recieved the parcel.

Our Vegie Garden

At long last we have moved house, and are now fully settled in...

So it was time to plant out the vegie garden... Now being in a new house, we had to start from stratch {when I say me, I actually mean Ian and the kids - cause I'm too pregnant lol}

I didn't get any photo's of them digging the garden as I was too busy inside looking after Cam, but here are the pics of the finished result:

The brocolli and the pumpkins were started off site in pots at the old house, but they have transferred well, the Tomatoes and Capsicums are all newly bought and planted - still have carrots, radish, and cucumbers to plant

Strawberries and Peas transported from the old house... these are growing really well, so we won't transplant them into the ground
