Things in my life right now:

- I have started eating porridge for breakfast*. It is YUMMY.

- We went to a different church this week, which was awesome. Our regular church is quiet, solemn, and rather lifeless - as well as being quite challenging to meet people. This church is friendly, enthusiastic, and SINGS WITH GUSTO, which we've missed a great deal. (Not a comment on worship style, precisely. But when your church service feels more like a funeral, it becomes rather wearying.)

- The internet went down yesterday, taking away half my possible activities. *pines* Thankfully, it has now returned.

- Brought a huge amount of wool to Germany with me, with the intention of making a huge blanket that would
a) keep me warm
b) occupy my crocheting time for several months, in case I couldn't find more wool here.
I am now utterly sick of my half-finished blanket, and am plotting trips to wool shops to buy supplies for making baby things. It would be rather ludicrous to teach myself to crochet and not make my baby crocheted things, after all.

- Have finished Veronica Mars (except the movie). It's rather fun.

- Am getting kicked awake at 3am every morning, and thus missing out on a proper night's sleep. Can't wait until this kid is born, so that it can actually be put down away from my internal organs once in a while.



* My appetite being somewhat increased by pregnancy, it's actually my third breakfast of the day, following yoghurt and cereal.

You crochet beautifully, so your baby NEEDS stuff made by you.
The rug you made for our bub is still a constant source of 'ooh' by visitors, and the bub loves to pick it up and carry it around now, hide things under it, etc. :-)

Only being kicked awake at 3am? Bahahahaha....oh you poor thing. Just wait until that happens, AND you're up every two hours needing to pee. It's such fun.
(and btw, the 'once bub is out' is such a lovely notion, but I think you'll probably find that in the first few weeks, you'll be fervently wishing the little wailing puking peeing pooing screaming non-sleeping-at-1am always-hungry thing were still inside you and QUIET and not needing you 24/7, and also cursing the other things that birth and milk coming in is doing to your body.... ;-) Then again, you may have wonderful first weeks, which would be lovely. I wish that for you. :-) )

Ah, it's such an awesome gift, couldn't have failed. :-)

YES, they exist. All is sunshine and rainbows, whee! :-D
Oh yes, and the super-easy super-fast (but not tooo fast, I had a friend go into shock with a two-hour labour!) labour will be all yours, too. I could email you about how super my It Will Be Calm And Wonderful birth went... ;-)

So glad you found a livelier church.
