I have two cute stories that I really wanted to share with you today. They are all about my daughter and getting ready for the new baby.

We're just about to paint the spare room and complete it's transformation into a nursery. Previously, we've used the the walls as a space to stick up some of the little one's artwork so her and I decided the other day to start taking it all down and removing the blue-tak ready to paint. Whilst doing this my daughter asked why we were taking her pictures down. I told her it was so we could get the room ready. She then asked me "Won't the baby like my pictures then?" Aw.... that made me really sad.

And secondly was another dispointment. My husband has taken a few days off work to get decorating and other bits and bobs done. He said to her at bed time a couple of nights ago. "Hey guess what's happening on Friday!". She said very excitedly "Is the baby coming?". Um, no... Daddy's just got a day off work. Whilst she was happy about that, can't say she carried on being quite as excited.

Anyway, enough rambling from me. Just wanted to share those random bits of conversation. And talking of random, how random is this photo? I'm not entirely sure what's going on here but I think it's fantastic. Love the thought of lots of bright coloured balloons hanging up and cheering up what looks like an otherwise dull day.

Happy weekend everyone!
