I am still here!

I think I've had the opposite of that NaNoWriMo or whatever it was called this month. I just couldn't be a****d to write,even though I have thought about it lots...

Had a lovely Christmas, with lots of friends and family, food and chocolates. Yum. I've not really missed wine too much either, although i did find a nice 5.5% pinot grigio spritzer at Sainsbury's which i had a couple of glasses of over the festive period.

We're in the middle of rearranging all the furniture in the house to convert our dining room into a playroom, as I am feeling the need to use the space in the house more effectively, and until now, the dining room has been a "dressed" room rather than a functional one. God I'm knackered! Hopefully we will get it finished in the next couple of hours, I'm sure me blogging whilst A watches Nick Jr is really helpful to the cause.

The big news is that I have an iPod! I got it for Christmas, and I am very excited to join the Friday shuffle gang, apart from I only have one album (Take That) and three random songs purchased from iTunes on it at the moment. However, tonight's job is to put a load more stuff on it so that I am ready for tomorrow's inaugural shuffle. Very very excited, also because she is a beautiful, red (the one that gives money to AIDS charities) iPod, christened Scarlett O'Hara. I love her! I also got some nice jewellery from Pilgrim, some lovely Aromatics Elyxir goodies, some cash and a stylish compost pot for the kitchen. I'm rather pleased. A had a great time, and it is lovely to all be at home together - it's doing us the world of good.

In pregnancy news, all is well, although I suspect I have been doing too much as I am pretty sleepy (not like the first few weeks though!). Lots of movement, and then 20 week scan looms on the 9th Jan, which is a real milestone. I can't help but have little niggly worries about it, but whatever will be will be.

I love that red iPod. If I didn't already have an iPod, I'd get that one.

I'm with Katya - I adore how that red iPod looks. I was almost sorry that I got one a year ago because it means I can't get a red one.

Now I'll be looking forward to your Friday Shuffles.

Can't wait to read about a baby update.
