If I were any more nesty...

me just shy of 21 weeks - I finally have a bump!

This is just a short apology for my, well, scattyness at the mo. Perhaps you havn't noticed? I hope not. I adore my blog for the creative release it gives me from the humdrum of everyday life, but I sometimes wonder what the hell I'm doing it for, and whether it is of any interest to anybody at all besides myself. After all, I bore me most of the time!!

But the root of my scattyness at the moment lies with the nestiness I've been consumed, hell obsessed with over the last couple of weeks. To be honest if I were any more nesty, I'd be laying an egg!! Nestiness is not unique to my pregnancy (well, duh) but is it strange to be this bad at 21 weeks??? Last pregnancy I'm not certain I ever really got nesty at all, certainly it didn't manifest itself in the cleanliness of my home! This time I am a woman possessed. Just this week I:

- Painted the nursery
- Cleaned out all the bedroom cupboards from five years of accumulated debris
- Filled 3 garbage bags of clothes for charity
- Bought storage containers and labelled all of Ferny's old clothes by size
- Washed, folded, ironed and stored every article of 0000 clothing
- Sorted all the photo albums

... there's probably more but I currently have the memory of a goldfish. My sister is coming to stay over the weekend and it is the only reason I havn't already packed away the Queen size bed currently in the 'spare-room-cum-nursery' even though I have 5 months to go! It is suddenly of integral importance to get that room cleared and cleaned to within an inch of its life.

Good lord, I've gone insane.

Have a good weekend peeps, if you need me I'll be buried nose deep inside my wardrobe, organising every garment by size, type and colour...



  1. Hi Nicole, I'm a relatively new follower, but I love reading your blog!! I'm a week behind you pregnancy-wise (with my first), and actually had to take a day off work this week in order to sort out my wardrobe and go to the local DIY shop for some paint charts. And, no, neither could wait. Ha - happy nesting! xx PS cute bump :)

  2. Oh it's so exciting Nicole, Nesting is fun albeit crazy! I can't believe how fast your pregnancy is going (well to me) have fun nesting this weekend.

  3. I never got the nesting bug whilst I was pregnant.....although I did move into our new house when I was 37 weeks pregnant, so maybe I was and could distinguish between moving & nesting!

  4. Nest away..its good for the soul as its an exciting thing having a you well
    know !!!...good to do all these kind of jobs pre you feel refreshed and organised and so that these things wont harp over you when you come home with bubs...oh how exciting!!! Do you know what your having? x

  5. I remember that craziness, and I kinda miss it! Have a lovely weekend. x

  6. Don't you ever think for a moment that you're boring us all!! I love your little blog :) Your bump looks adorable. You have done a lot this week - I definitely need to take a leaf out of your nesting book and sort through Grace's clothing and store it away for the future. Have a great weekend! x

  7. oh you are always so organised - please can you come and nest my house next week?!?! Helen x

  8. Wow.. 21 weeks already- how exciting! Enjoy the nesting- I loved getting everything perfect for little miss, just didn't realise how quickly it would be reversed once she came!

  9. oh my gosh, you've been one busy bee! if you're free, we'd love to have you come here and work on our cabinets, albums and laundry ;-)
