this last week

This last week has been one of 'those' weeks. An elderly family member passed away and whilst this was not entirely unexpected it was still obviously a sad event and It threw my 38 week pregnant self off course completely when it comes to this blog and other creative or work related endeavours. 

The funeral was on Tuesday and we said goodbye to my Great Auntie Jean; a beautiful woman who was gorgeous through and through. A real lady. 

Also my husband has been unwell, Edie too, and as for me, well, I've definitely reached the stage where doing the most simple things is hard work. 

I'm really feeling the need to settle down at home and prepare for our new baby. I felt the same way with Edie, like I needed to close down some of the other parts of my life and focus just on us, on home, on family, on the little life inside me. 

Now I have just four days until my due date. Wow. 

And there's a part of me that looks around and wants to 'get things ready', cleaning, organising, putting in place a system that we can just slot into when we return from the hospital with a newborn, but then there's a bigger part of me that says 'what is there to do except keep well and happy and just relax'. 

And so that's what I intend to do. 

I really hope you all had a good Easter. 
Thanks for reading.
