Hello, it's me, the absentee!
26 weeks and 1 day today... and things are still going really well. I have put on about 8kg so far, as much as I can tell. The scales had started climbing a bit before I fell pregnant so I'm not 100% sure how heavy I was to start with. But I know I've been eating more sweets/chocolate lately so I might try and control myself a bit more! I still have weeks and weeks to get even bigger and I heard you're supposed to put on between 10-12kgs....
We just had the nicest weekend away in Canberra with our friends Daniel & Rebecca. 8 hours driving each way with no incident - thank God. I get paranoid about the car stuffing up somewhere remote and hot etc.
We toured the beautiful city of Canberra while sipping on smoothies, BBQ dinners outdoors in the twilight, breakfast of sweet summer fruits, and did laps of amazing food festivals and markets. Very 'foodie' weekend, sampling so many local delicacies!
Lunch was a highlight at the Bean & Grain, which made lunchy bagels, with fantastic layered combinations like turkey, avocado, swiss & cranberries. Or roast lamb & caramelized peach. Divine.
We also got to pop in on my long-time friend & penpal, Beth and her little family of four. Her boys were so well behaved and just gorgeous! May have fallen in love with her tubby youngest one!
So back to work tomorrow, only 2 weeks to go before we close for Christmas.
Just can't get there fast enough.
