The children are staying at the oma's for a couple of days and Michel and I are taking full advance of their absence to get as many jobs done as possible.
I feel all over the place. One moment I feel that we're on the right track, the next I'm panicking because everything is still a mess and nothing is properly arranged. I'm really nervous that this baby will come early... I feel so not ready for it!! It sometimes seems that the more jobs we get done, the more jobs appear. And the unfortunate thing is that of all the things the nursery is the last thing to be finished. I so desperately want to have that room done with, so that I can start decorating and really getting ready for the baby.
But anyway, let's focus on the positive, shall we? Luckily, we are making vast progress in all kinds of directions even if it doesn't seem that way.
Just look what arrived this morning!!
Our brand new dining table along with six chairs!! It's huge and wonderful and actually already put together and oiled. This is in fact the first table we've ever bought. All the others were hand-me-downs. I'll post a better photo some other time. Perhaps when our new sofa has arrived :) Yes, money has been flowing (thanks Mum and Dad!).
This weekend we've also been able to move Simon to his new room. He loves it as it's so much bigger than his old room (which will now become the nursery). He's been playing there non-stop with his cars and blocks.
I have a very long list of things I need/want to sew, but somehow I don't seem to be able to start. Yesterday I decided to take the plunge and started ripping apart the lining of our "second" cot. I even cut into my precious matryoshka fabric... it's a start!
I'm also very relieved that at long last I've started making lists. It made me feel less disorganised immediately and scratching off things is enormously satisfying.
Michel and I enjoyed a night out too yesterday. We went to our favourite Mexican restaurant in Utrecht and had a lovely time. We're off now to shop for food... we're both hungry after our day of hard work.
Tomorrow the children will be back, which I'm really looking forward to!
Ok, one last photo of the babe inside his/her little house. Hopefully happy to stay there for another four weeks!
