Trendy Tuesday - some warmer weather!

Yay! The sunshine has finally found us! I'm not sure how long for, but at last, it's been time to break out the sunnies, hats and even... SHOCK HORROR!  Shorts.  Not for me you understand.  I'm still stuck wearing laddered and unsightly compression tights rendering anything other than maxi dresses and leggings worn over the horrible (but helpful) tights impossible.  No, for Ethan.

I thought I'd share a few of this outfits from the last seven days.

Trendy Tuesday will probably go a bit quiet from here on in... well, for a few weeks at least.  I'm 38+2 weeks pregnant now, and whilst I know I could easily go on to 42 weeks before baby arrives, I want to make sure I'm not pressurising myself to be doing anything beyond keeping the house ticking over and relaxing as much as I can.  When I was pregnant with Ethan, I went on maternity leave quite early and I didn't blog.  I spent loads of time just relaxing and reading.  This time around, I've got Ethan to look after, make sure he gets to preschool, keep the house running (which always takes more effort when there's more than two of you!), keep food shopping, cooking etc.  You know the drill!!  Blogging is too easy to continue with in a way.  Unlike with maternity leave from work, you can always blog.. your phone is always there, your laptop near by.  I'm going to have to force myself to take a bit of a step back.  That doesn't mean nothing will be happening on the blog.  I have a couple of reviews that need to be written up and published and I hope to do a weekly pregnancy post, but other than that, I'm planning to take a break until the baby arrives and I feel up to blogging again.  I hope this won't put people off popping by and reading.  I will be back to normal one day, but for now, for me, I need to slow things down.
