Well....April has been an eventful, exciting and well travelled month so far. I had a lovely train journey up to the Scottish Highlands with my family to spend a long weekend celebrating my cousin's wedding. The wedding took place in a quaint little church in a place called Callander and then we went on to celebrate with a wonderful reception at the Dunblane Hydro. Following which was a delicious three course meal, a Caleigh (which I couldn't do due to being 33 weeks pregnant, I was tempted though) and a disco.
It was a fun packed weekend, and the hotel I stayed in was gorgeous. I managed to fit in a morning swim, a delicious cooked breakfast and spending precious time with my family. I wore a blue lace dress with pink accessories and one of my personal highlights was my hubby having to paint my toenails for me. I honestly cannot see my feet anymore. Oh well, may as well take advantage whilst I can and he didn't make to bad a job either. ;)
We stayed on a day in a little cottage with my parents and breathed in one last bit of the fresh Trossach air blowing off the lochs and bens. We ate very healthily (not!) with bacon sandwiches, battered sausages and of course chips...got to love the Scottish diet. No haggis or black pudding for me however hubby tucked right in.
I am five weeks away from my due date now and am sooooo very excited. The plan is to have a water birth all being well and we went for a tour of the hospital last weekend and the rooms are beautiful. Like a 5* hotel. If i'm going to suffer all of that pain I may as well suffer in style that's what I say. The nursery is nearly finished so it's just a case of counting down the days now and getting the last few extra bits :)
I have stopped working for now but I did manage to fit in a sneaky photoshoot today with the super talented Peter Alan. He specializes in print work and loves to work with natural older methods of photography. He sells most of his pictures at exhibitions and many have sold for commercial purposes so hopefully we will do quite well. I will put a few of the finished ones up when they are done but for now I will leave you with a sneaky peak behind the scenes.... Please note I am wearing something that you clean a car with here, seriously I kid you not. This photographer loves to experiment.
Blog again soon.
