These days, every time I’m away from the Internet for a couple of days or not answering my phone, people assume that I’m busy giving birth. So far it’s never been the case though!
The thing is that Hannes and I have been moving from our old place to a new larger apartment. Of course, moving is always exhausting, but luckily we got a lot of help from our friends, who did most of the packing and carrying. As always, I don’t know how we would manage without them.
Now all the boxes and sacks are here, and the only thing left is to find a place for everything. So far, we’ve managed to make the bedroom livable. And of course, the most important room of the apartment, the kitchen, has come together too. Today I celebrated by making the first cooked dinner and chocolate truffles. Also, I’ve tried out the new oven by baking bread. So far so good!
Because of my pregnancy, I was very much the center of attention at the New Year’s party. There were about a hundred people there, most of whom I know from my high school days.
Practically everyone there had heard that I was expecting, but most people hadn’t met me in person. So everyone kept glancing at my tummy and I got many questions about how I felt, when the big date is, is it a boy or girl. Almost always when I tell people that I’m expecting in about six weeks, they respond with disbelief. Looking at some photos from the party, I can’t really blame them.
