water water everywhere....

Ok, well not everywhere exactly....



You may wonder why I am proudly displaying a photo of what appears to be a kitchen sink on my blog...well.. it is a kitchen sink. We've lived here since the start of the year. When we first moved in we had no running water at all and no indoor toilet..... we've come a long way since then (in stages) and the last stage was completed on sunday night. We now have running hot and cold water in the bathroom and the kitchen. WOO HOO!!

This means we no longer have to boil water on the wood stove which makes bathtime easier and a lot more fun (for mummy)



Our wee girl is growing rediculously quickly...she's 7 weeks old now and is 62 cm long and believe it or not, she's cutting her first tooth.... I can't even believe it... its far too early to deal with teeth


I made baby hand and footprints with her,

I didnt want to press too hard, so they are just enough indentation to feel them and see them and I made them into decorative tins I had saved from soap and bath salts so they look pretty for her.

I have managed to do a little crochet... I'm making a scarf...


And, I'm also making a mess....

This is my 'process'....I'm making some nappies...I have a few different kinds of nappies, but I wanted to just add a couple of covers that will dry quickly (made from fleecy fabric).

So that's us more or less caught up, sorry the blogging is a little erratic... I seem to only get to blog when it's the middle of the night and the milk monster is sleeping. Ok... I'm off to enjoy a hot shower...yey!!

So happy for you!!! I know a little bit of what you've had to deal with...although we had running water and a toilet, we were without a kitchen for nearly a month during some house renovation a few years ago. With 4 children...
Your baby girl is just adorable!

Post whenever you can- sometimes a nap might be wiser use of your time than blogging!

I'd always go the nap ahead of blogging.
As for being without running water - you're a champion for surviving it & I can only imagine the sheer joy you must now experience when you turn on the tap.

Did you receive the yarn and magazine from my giveaway yet? I'm suddenly afraid I sent it to the wrong place or the wrong person or something. I noticed that I have another blog reader with a similar name, and I thought... oh no! Did I send it to the wrong person? I can't imagine that I could have done that, but please let me know if/when it arrives to ease my mind. :) I hope it arrives safely!

p.s. I do know that I sent it to Romania, so I hope it went to the right spot!
