The swede

We have no more white walls, so for the next few weeks we'll have a selection of different plaster wall backgrounds!  This week he's a swede, probably he's supposed to be a bigger swede than this one here but that's the biggest we could find.  We turned him into a tasty cheesy bake and then some mash.

I can now fit into my ASOS maternity pencil skirt, a bargain at £10!  And with all my different blouses I should be able to make it work for the remaining months without getting too bored of it.

The aubergine

I searched Brixton market this morning to get the prettiest looking aubergine.  After photographing we turned it into a delicious stuffed aubergine treat.  This photo is taken before heading out to a friend's farewell party, we had a lovely time catching up with some old faces.  I'm wearing an old Whistles jumper which is so sparkly and perfect to pep up a pair of jeans.

The ear of corn

Thankfully we're still in season for corn, the end of summer and some lovely sweet corn from the Brixton farmers market.  This is a dress Mum sent last Christmas, from the New Zealand designer Karen Walker.  It's accommodating the bump rather nicely.

A weekend in Bologna

I travelled to Parma for work this week and Carlos joined me to enjoy a weekend in Bologna.  Our last baby free weekend away... although he is there with us isn't he?

We had a fabulous time doing my favourite things, investigating the charming back streets, tasting some delicious foods and browsing the shops.

If you visit Bologna you must go to the food markets in the centre of the Old Town, they were amazing.

Of course we had to buy a few things to bring home with us.  A selection of pork goodness for Carlos and some delicious parmigiano to experiment with.

The papaya

Another week and what a treat...  a papaya.  Not something we usually buy as they're a bit pricey and hard to come by.  But so delicious when liberally covered in lime juice.  This photo is just before I headed off to a big cycling event we'd spent months organising at work, so I had on my pretty Marc Jacobs dress which still fits, hooray!

Notice we're fast running out of any nice plain white walls for our background.  This is taken against the boiler cupboard just before we demolish it!

It's a ...

We had some very exciting news this morning.  Carlos can't keep the grin off his face and is already obsessing over cute little outfits.
