Kate hates having her photo taken, but I managed to get this one yesterday not long after she'd been to the hairdressers for her hair trimmed. We went on a girly spending spree yesterday - Kate got her maternity grant and backdated Income Support so she was rich - first of all going to a charity furniture place where we picked up a couple of pieces. After that we went to Babies R Us for cotton wool, toiletries, nappy rash cream, milk powder (for just in case the breast feeding doesn't work out), top and tail bowl, a soft toy, and a couple of other bits. Then it was on to Ikea where she bought herself a rug, a cutlery tray, some net curtain panels, and I got a lovely duvet cover. Finally we went to Focus for decorating stuff. Hopefully we have all the paint and paper we need to do the whole house. It's all systems go now, we only have 5 weeks till the baby is due.
On Saturday we're off to the carpet shop to get her sitting room and bedroom carpets. I've told her she can have the carpet from her bedroom here for the baby's bedroom, so that will just leave her stair carpet to get.
Today we're making a start on the decorating. Kate has gone round to give the kitchen a good clean and Dene is going when he gets up to make a start on the ceilings for her. Craig will paint the kitchen walls later this afternoon then we can start putting stuff in there. Not that she has much but the cooker can go in and the kettle and the other odds and ends she has that will go in the cupboards.
Just need Dene to get his keys now.
