waiting game

Well, here I am at home on maternity leave, while Neil goes off to work without me.

This would normally be unbearable, but I'm so big and heavy that I don't really care as much AND my big sister Marieke has come home from China to babysit me!

She's lots of fun. I like to wake her up at 6:00 am every morning... just to say hi with a big wet kiss. She makes such funny noises when I do that!
I've been a bit off my food a bit the last few days, so she tempts me with tasty morsels and hand feeds me chicken necks, which is very nice of her.

But all in all, I think I've had enough of this pregnancy game - must be time to bring on the puppies very soon.

Kay says it might even be tonight... and if not, then surely tomorrow.


  1. We wish you all the best for the arrival of the pupsters, Honey. We hope you can go back to doing crazy Dales things real soon!

    Let us know how many mini-yous we'll have...gosh, it's gonna be a busy blog...

    What's your address?? We'd like to send you something...You can email us on airemail at mollecreative dot com....

  2. Oh my goodness...oh my goodness....
    Have you got enough wet rags and a stick to chew for the delivery????
    Now about the names of the pups. I highly recommend Noah for a boy.
    Good luck Rubs. We'll be thinking of ya.

    So, I read you are pregnant....mmm, I am not much for advise, but I surely hope you are over and done with it quickly. Crikey! exciting times you have ahead of you girl.
    Hope you leave some time for visiting with your pups, pop in for a bone or two when you are in the neighbourhood.
