Hello everyone. These days are just flying by. ARGHHHH
I have hit the halfway mark and I am 20 weeks pregnant.
I had my morphology scan on Tuesday.
Yes, I found out the sex of the of the baby, that was our wish all along! I just don’t know how to announce it.
Gee, people are funny about the sex of the baby. Judgement either way. Whether you want a surprise or find out. People can just be plain RUDE!!!!!!
Another note on the scan, everything appears well and baby is growing. I am starting to feel movement and it is toooooo exciting.
I had a VERY productive week last week!
Monday, I was at work. Tuesday I had to the scan and then lunched with my mum, sister and aunty!
Wednesday I received 2 quotes for a wrought iron screen door. Then went out to Spotlight.
Thursday I drove all the way to North Seaforth to purchased curtain fabric after getting overwhelmed and underwhelmed at the same time in Spotlight
Then drove all the way down to Caringbah to pay the deposit for the screen door we have chosen. (Joint Christmas present for myself and hubby. We are true romantics)
Then I visited the homemaker centre looking for an armchair for the nursery. I visited all the big names, like Harvey Norman, Domayne, Freedom etc.
I left pissed off, like every time I visit.
Although knowing full well I had a lucky charm in my back pocket! An invite to the Coco Republic warehouse sale!!!!!!!!
It started on Friday. I pulled up to Auburn and the car park was chockers with luxury European 4WD’s of the black/navy/silver variety.
Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore!
It was utter mayhem! So many people putting “HOLD” stickers on items. No, not “SOLD” but hold. ERRRRR get lost.
Plenty was already sold and when I left at 11am, there wasn’t really much left.
I managed to nab an item I have been coveting.
For the nursery, I wanted a wing back chair. That was mentioned in this post
And that is what I did indeed receive!!!!
I spotted the chair from afar, ran to it, sat in it, examined it and I DID NOT MOVE FROM THE CHAIR until I could usher over a sales assistant.
(honestly, someone would have stolen it from under me)
This is the chair from the website
The plushest, luxurious-est, yummiest, cushion of a cloud chair!
The angels came out and sung “hallelujah”
My one has different wood stain and upholstery. Was $2400, I got mine for $800!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is my chair, in the nursery.
Can’t wait to whip up not 1 but 2 cushions for this chair, to add the required splash of colour the nursery needs, because it is a BEIGE HAZE!
I also purchased this shell frame. I love natural items!
Was $443 down to $150! Honestly, that is $150 worth of framing.
I don’t think I will put this in the nursery, working towards a gallery wall in the hallway to go with these frames (still not hung)
The husband has been super busy this weekend painting our new front door!
Then after the Coco Republic sale on Friday, I went to spotlight AGAIN. (I think I live there)
I picked the brain of a person working there about curtains, she sold me what I needed and then I went home to take a stab at sewing curtains.
I got myself on a roll and I FINISHED making the curtain!
Just need the husband to install the curtain rod and then I can hang the curtains to hem them.
Next up is my garden!
Merlot Calla Lilies
Pink Calla Lilies
The white is vegetable dust
Until next time, too da loo!
