I should really write about the trip at some point. Anyhow, onto this year! We decided against a trip, as it’s expensive and can be a hassle. So I suggested she get me a nice present and take me for dinner instead – which she did, and did very well too!
She got me the Fitbit Aria smart Wi-fi scale to go with my Fitbit Force (which is unfortunately undergoing a recall).
I might write more about the scale later, if anyone is interested.
And then on Friday, my actual birthday, she took me for a really lovely degustation menu at Soleil in PJ, Section 17.
Good food, good wine and of course the very best company available 🙂 After that it was off to TDH, our usual birthday joint to see my bro with the same birthday – Terence, and I had to do the judgement pipe..not pleasant.
And after we went to Velvet at Zouk..I don’t even remember the last time I went there – I’m still tired today haha.
We’ve gotten a few other bits and bobs too lately (which is nice!) – like a PS4, PSB Surround sound system, new router, new leather sofa and gotten a few things around the house fixed (broken lights, some leaks in the porch, got some new artificial grass, cat-proofed the porch etc), sold off a bunch of stuff I wasn’t really using any more. And it was all good timing too, as I guess we’ll be spending more time at home, we need a puke proof sofa and a well kept house.
Because…WE ARE HAVING A BABY! Yes, we decided to announce on my birthday, so we let the people know that were there – and if you weren’t you probably might already know, or if not – well now you know! We don’t know the gender yet, but the baby should be due around September 22nd 2014.
Even got a label maker for the baby book haha. So yah, it’s on – so excited!
So it surely is going to be an interesting year, it’s already been quite a journey and there’s so much to learn. Yes I’ll be the confinement lady, if you have any tips..let me know haha.
My mother in law is so concerned that I said I’ll learn to wash the baby from Youtube, like really it can’t be that hard right?
Sometimes I feel like I should start blogging again, but then again it feels like no-one is reading – but honestly that shouldn’t be the motivation right?
Also any well loved, high quality, useful baby gear is welcome over here if any of you out there are all done having babies and still have some stuff lying around.
