Week 28 – Shopping, Audible & Knitting update

So we’re on Wednesday already – which puts me half way through my week 🙂 This is a lovely short week for me and I’m very much looking forward to the 4 day weekend. I’m really hoping to get some knitting done.

Apologies for the lack of blog posts recently. I’m trying to make sure I get at least one update a week for you guys 🙂 Currently, I’m spending a lot of time with family and trying to get all the adult things like gas cost comparisons done before bubs arrives. I just need everything running smoothly until I’m not sleep deprived!

I literally haven’t done any knitting now for over a week. Which is insane and I think driving me a little bit mad! It’s not normal for me to go this long without knitting in my hands.

The last week has been ridiculously busy. Last weekend I was up at the Bournemouth International Center with work for the BFX festival. That was really exciting and I got to play with the 3D printer a bit more and meet some really interesting people. But that was the entire of my Saturday gone with no time for knitting!

On Sunday I found myself in Southampton (with my Husband as it had been his birthday on the Friday!). We did some shopping – including buying a fake sheepskin rug from IKEA for £10! We’re about to start getting the nursery sorted. So I’m really looking forward to getting started with that.

Bubs is literally getting bigger everyday at the moment. I’m pretty sure every time I look at the bump bubs has grown a little more. Our next appointment with the midwife is next week and after that it will be every 2 weeks until the due date (so about 6 appointments!). Bubs is actually rearranging as I write this 🙂

What I have just about had time to do this week is listen to some of the stuff I downloaded from Audible – it’s great for the journey to and from work.

Robert Galbraith (J.K  Rowling): Career of Evil I love the Galbraith series from Rowling. Following Cameron Strike and his assistant through their attempts to solve their cases is full of twists and turns. Both are going through their own personal issues with does colour the interpretation of the events going on around them. If you haven’t found this series, I would seriously go and take a look.

Richard Dawkins: The God Delusion This is a book I was recommended many years ago, but never had the time to sit down and read. It’s currently being listened to in the car and as an alternative to music if I’m wondering around. Personally, I’m an agnostic about religion, but I know people who are very religious and are deeply affected by their religious beliefs. Hearing from someone who is completely atheist is interesting as it helps to understand a different point of view of the world. If you’re interested in this kind of thing, I would really recommend having a look.

What I’m actually reading:

Dan Burstein: Secrets of the Code I’m a massive fan of the Dan Brown books and The Da Vinci code did set me off questioning the bible and wanting to understand how this religious text had been put together. This book is full of short essays that cover the subject the Dan Brown touched on as part of his plot – the ‘sacred feminine’ and the ‘bloodline’. It’s really interesting as it’s full of new facts and alternative interpretations and origins of the some of the more popular elements of the bible. I’ve had this on my shelf for a long time, but I’m really please to have finally found time to pick it up. My logic is that I should read it now which my brain is awake enough to process the interesting information!

Anyhow, I need to head to work now 🙂 So knitting is going to wait until dinner break later unfortunately. But I’m glad of the time to write to you guys 🙂

Baby brain signing off 🙂
