Is it a plane or is it a butterfly? No it is a little baby boy.

Good afternoon

It has been such a long time since I have posted anything, I had to first familiarise myself with how to make a new post.

I know that I made a new years resolution to do at least one post a week and it has been a few weeks since my last post. Actually more like a few months. Sorry about that, as usual life got in the way, but this has been a very nice part of life that has been in the way, it has taken the form of a new life. Yes we are expecting our third child and we have just found out that it is a little boy.

I am hoping that now that the 2nd trimester has started that I will have more energy. The first few weeks did not seem to go well for me, the morning sickness was not so bad it was more the lack of energy that got to me. I just could not get going until after 11 in the mornings and then I still had to do house work and then it was time to get the kids from school and with the oldest in grade 1 now, we had to make extra time for homework. The craft room was closed for so long I had to move the plant out, it was starting to die. But last week I opened it up, cleaned it out and even had a go at doing some crafting and oh joy, how I have missed my "me time".  I cannot promise to craft often but I am sure going to do my best.

Now onto my little project.  I made a birthday card for a friends whose mom is turning 80 years old.  Wow I think that is just so great, turning 80.

Thank you for staying and reading my post.  Hopefully it will not be so long before I do a post again.  Keep well and to those living in South Africa, keep warm.
