Hi everyone! I'm back!

Hi everyone! Happy New Year to all! It's been a looong while! I've taken a few months to get myself back and am so happy to be back again!!!

Well I've not been feeling all too good initially with an infection that requires me to go to the clinic every single day for consecutive seven days (yes!) to be on an antibiotic drip on my hand (not mentioning the more than 20 jabs to my buttocks!). And I have to tug along Georgia with me. She'll read her books and do her drawing while mummy lies on the bed waiting for the drip to end. It's a dread, I tell you. I've lost all appetite and I was so weak. I'm really glad that it's all over now!!! The good news is that we're expecting a bundle of joy maybe at the end of April or May!!! We're really excited and so is Georgia as she's all hyped up about going to be a big sister soon!!!

I'm in my 23 weeks now and we already know the sex of the little one but we're keeping it a secret just to create some excitement. So I haven't been doing much since as this second pregnancy leaves me feeling all weak and tired. And since now the bump is getting bigger, I have been getting backaches so I can't sit for long in front of the computer. But I'm really glad to be able to blog again!

We start this year new with Georgia going to Kindergarten. We have tried the homeschooling but it seems like Georgia misses going to school and with me restless and feeling tired on most days, we just thought maybe we'll just let her go to school then. So we sourced out a Kindergarten which is more play based than academic as I am still teaching her on most mornings. In fact I find that she is able to concentrate better now since she has started school. Maybe it's the novelty of wearing her school uniform and going to school and play with her friends that's getting her all excited. In a way it's good for me, I'll get four hours in the afternoon to rest and prepare dinner before I fetch her home. Her school is just two streets away from home so it's an easy walk for both of us.

Here's Georgia on her first day of school on last Friday.

It's also been a while since I've sewn anything. I try not to push myself too hard so I just start with refashion for today and slowly work my work up to sewing more clothes for myself, Georgia and the little one in my tummy!

This is a dress that Georgia has outgrown and since she is into fluffy skirt, I thought I'll just refashion it into a skirt for her. I love the end result. All done in 15 minutes before my back starts acting up again!!!

I hope to put up the tutorial on the tote soon! Sorry for the delay!

Have a great day everyone! ^_^

Welcome back and Congratulations!! That is great news! I was hoping that might have been why you were absent for so long.

Wow, we're preggy together! How cool is that. Take care and get as much rest as you can.
