I made something!
….or should that be I completed something! Quite an extended break from blogging! The last few months have been a whirlwind! Baby girl arrived at the end of August, it took quite a few weeks before I was back to anywhere approaching normal – post C Section I had some pain while doing pretty much […]
VÄDRA changing mat cover
Nesting! We put together the furniture for the baby’s room last week (although she will probably sleep in our room for at least the first few months), just a fairly basic crib and changing table from IKEA, along with re-utilising some existing drawers that we have had for a while. To go with the changing […]
…and I keep getting bigger!
For the most part this pregnancy had resulted in not many changes to my everyday wardrobe as I don’t wear a lot of slim fitting clothing, other than having to switch to bottoms with elasticated waists from around 5 months. But friends, the time had come, my extensive collection of Scout tees and medium girlie […]
“These sweatpants are all that fits me right now.”
Ok, not quite, but we had a wedding coming up to go to and I tried on all the dresses in my wardrobe that I owned and only one fit. Just. Baby Marsh is really starting to show! Anyway, it was very close, so I figured I needed a plan B. This is the same […]
Is it something in the water? A good friend of mine gave birth a few days before Christmas, another has done since, we have two more expecting…. and of course, all being well, two will become three in the Marsh family this summer! That’s right. At long last we are expecting our own little bundle […]
My Own Personal Jane Austen Hero.
So…. Finally all the i’s have been dotted, t’s have been crossed, exams passed, graduation attended…. (Apparently this is a Swedish graduation tradition/thing – thankfully they were unable to find a tractor) ……and your girl here is now qualified to practice as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist in California! Studying for all those tests and exams […]
Did anyone else watch the Great Pottery Throw Down? I am sure I am not alone in watching it and think “That looks like fun!” A bigger surprise was that Mr M agreed with me, so I seized upon the opportunity to get him involved in something creative, and looked for classes available in our […]
The Gospel according to Gaston.
Ahhhh Time. Something of which I don’t seem to have all that much of lately. I think I used to somehow make better use of my time while we lived in the UK, I had a full-time (+extra) job, crafted, and managed to fit in some exercise, yet at the moment I am struggling to […]
Back to School
It’s true. I did not quit my job to be a unemployed slacker, there was a reason, and the reason is my return to school so I can re-qualify as a laboratory scientist in California! Yeah! I am very excited, but that is of course partly because I am a super nerd who loves school, […]
R2-D(ress)2 and My Wildly Inappropriate Everyday Dress
It was soooo… freaking hot this weekend. Last summer I mainly spent at work in an air-conditioned building, so didn’t require all that much of a summer wardrobe. This year… I quit, so have found myself feeling somewhat warm when I go out in the daytime. Short shorts and vest tops have been embraced, but […]
