:: Amy's much improved - pretty much as good as new - though I am most definitely not forgiven for failing to stay by her side through her hospital ordeal. She asks me daily why I wasn't there and doesn't really listen to my answers. We all know it's not something I can explain to her satisfaction. She's not letting the world off the hook either for the way it let her down too. She's surly as hell and I can't blame her even if I have to discipline her. Thanks everyone who wished her well. Let's just hope she forgives us all soon.
:: It's really really hot and it seems like half of the state of Victoria is being chewed up by one of the worst bushfires we've had since the 80s. The air smells of smoke and you can barely see the horizon through an eerie orange glow. Already a few of our favourite bush camp sites are nothing but ash.
:: I'm over the 30 week mark and it's all getting a bit serious. There isn't a moment of the day that I'm not aware of what's coming over the horizon. Those kicks are starting to smart and that ain't the half of it. Ain't nothing I can do to resolve my schizophrenic joy and terror.
:: I'm going to a fancy party tonight and what do you wear when you're as big as a house and it's stinking hot and you know every other person in the room will be looking like fashion models?
:: I crocheted my first flower today. I can only encourage those who think they aren't crochet people. It grows on you. There'll be pics soon. When me and my camera aren't partly melted.
:: We've started on the Christmas decorating. Some of this and this. Thank you so much Simmy and Stephanie, you generous bloggers who share your patterns and instructions. You've saved me.
:: Did I mention it's really really hot?
