in which i miss time BP - before pregnancy

dont get me wrong, i love the whole pregnancy thing....well...except the sickness, tiredness and other nesses. what i hate is feeling like a social leper.
i loved Roller Derby. i still do. but obviously it doesnt really go well with pregnancy. so i had to stop. that was 17 weeks ago and i miss it so much; i miss the sweaty practices, the socialising, the gossip....
my team are now at the point where bouting against others is getting closer and closer..and i cant be as much a part of it as i would like. i feel like things are moving so fast and im being left behind, and thats tough, especially as i was in it from the start.
i just want my wheels back.

week 20 and other stories

baby has cooked to week 20 now, and is moving all the time and kicking nicely. Bump is growing slowly and has a nice shape, so i now look pregnant rather than have eaten too much...
this year ive decided to crochet some christmas presents.
my mum will be getting this scarf...
and my sister this cowl, pattern here...
i also used some of the silver flecked wool to make another blythe hat which is listed in my etsy.
ive also picked some gender neutral colours for a baby blanket. i went with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, and if we decided to find out the sex, can add in the appropriate colour palette as needed.
