I’m 38 weeks pregnant today… feel like I’m about to burst, but I’m in good company as everywhere seems to be suddenly waking up and blossoming 🙂

I’m tired and can feel I’m slowly closing, spiralling into myself: very, very soon we will be welcoming this Little One into our hearts and arms. Time seems to be slowing down and speeding up, all at the same time… I’m ready… I think!

Here are some snapshots of what’s happening around here…

1(The bottom right photo is of a pot of bulbs that our lovely friend Dorothy gave us at Christmas-time: it was planted to come into bloom when Baby was due. It is now in bloom as we wait these last few days! What a thoughtful, heart present; I just love it)

2(Tadpole season down the boreen… beyond exciting for small people… and their parents!)

3(We found a small skeleton in the willows. We think it is a small fox: a few months ago a friend of ours was over and spotted one that looked unwell. When we went out to investigate it was gone. Today we found this skull and the boys googled fox skulls and they reckon it is, indeed, the remains of the little fox. Another exciting find!)
