1. got up way too early (7.30am) after an early breakfast wake up call from james brown at 5.30am
2. had brekkie - strawberry jam and peanut butter on toast and a mandarin (i love mandarins at the moment! would have been sardines on toast if I hadn't run out yesterday)...
3. read some of this incredible book...
4. had a lovely chat with my favourite mother-in-law in Sydney...
5. checked out some of my favourite blogs... am incredibly behind!
6. did a load of towels
7. enjoyed a phone call with the very gorgeous G in Sydney... not long to go now miss!
8. did another load of towels...
9. had a visit from an electrician... all bad news...
10. cleaned up a james brown accident in the loungeroom with much stressing about permanent staining to the new timber floors....

Sounds very much like nesting to me : )

Thank you for the tip off in Box Hill, since I left my sewing project for the last minute I've come up with an alternative to the brown gingham. Something better would you believe!

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you for This Is. I would love to have you play along, I will add your link to the blog roll this morning.

Enjoy your rest and quiet before the little one arrives.

Glad to see you're making the most of your maternity leave!

Isn't that book just fabulous? Everytime I walk past the cafe now, I am instantly transported back to that book.
