making sunday special

Over the past few days I've been feeling able to venture a little further afield without fear of sickness. Don't get me wrong I'm still definitely down with the sickness pregnancy style but I'm *touch wood* starting to notice longer periods where I feel a little more normal.

So this Sunday we decided to hop on a bus to the other side of the city and join in with Bedminster's 'make Sunday special'. The event it basically a street party with roads closed for stalls and music and food, they take place on different dates over the summer in different parts of the city. Our local area is due on in August and I'm really looking forward to meeting and hanging out with some of the lovely people in our neighbourhood.

It was a pretty simple morning, drawing with chalk on the pavement, making rock pets and eating good food. When we got home we decided to go through some of Wilf's toys and choose ten to donate to a local baby charity, I think it's a good idea to teach about giving to people less fortunate..and also a great way to de-clutter! Wilf tried to give away a Big Bird softie we had bought him when I was pregnant and when I tried to explain who he was we realised he had never actually watched Sesame Street. Something that was rectified for about two hours that afternoon! I have to admit getting into them as much as Wilf, so much a part of my childhood, I love sharing these things with my own child.

I'm 15 weeks pregnant now and starting to think about what we will need to do to prepare for the new baby. We've decided to get some work done on the house that we've been thinking about for a while as it's not something we'll want to get done with a new baby around. We've also agreed that we need a bigger bed, with Wilf climbing into ours around 2am and the baby who will be co-sleeping with us there is no way we will all fit in our king size so we are treating ourselves to a super king. I do sometimes think we'd be better off just turning the floor of our bedroom into one big mattress!

Oh and just for fun a random photo and the boys playing I took during the week that doesn't really fit in anywhere but I love

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! x

So tempted to try Air BnB as so many people mention it...also, like you've mentioned, I am nosey and I like to be inspired by "real" decor and living in that country, not just corporate white walls and room service ( I dislike places with room service as I have a habbit of ordering spag bol at like 3 in the morning but that is a different story.....mmmm spag bol...)

It does look a wonderful place to stay. So nice to stay in somewhere that feels like a real home.
