Is this a hint...?

How random is this advert at my train station :) of all the things! We have actually booked and paid for our (flexible) air tickets this week. Its a big and scary step but each day that passes with no bad news is a day closer to meeting our precious twins.

We have reservations in at Svelte, but thankfully have a few months to save for that one, as a three week stay is hardly pocket change. Hope to also look at a couple of cars this weekend. All this planning, organising and budgeting can get overwhelming at times, but being a little Virgo, Id really have it no other way :)

Birthday Celebrations!

Life has been busy- Spring brings a happy time to celebrate my birthday with friends and family. It was nice to see I share my special day with Paul from Vishwas..I hope you also had a wonderful day! B spoilt me with a lovely dinner and a gift of a 3 hour pamper package. Looking forward to that one :)

Work has been crazy, the extra hours I have taken on this year will help us financially, but doesnt leave a lot of spare time. Leave home:darkness-get home:darkness. Trying to organise to get a few things done around the house before Dec is proving to be more than a little challenging. What is the deal with tradesman who just never turn up after booking in dates & times? With no communication ever made again? Grrr.....!

This weekend Im looking forward to testing out my birthday gift from my parents. A digital SLR camera. Im sure it will be a big improvement from my iphone pics :) Hoping we will be capturing some amazing images especially in Dec-Jan! In the meantime I think Mali will be my principle it puppy!

The scans showed everything is fine with our little twins. They are measuring perfectly so its all going along well. Checking my email has not really decreased, yet we are feeling quietly confident as things remain uneventful and calm. We are happy to hear our surrogate mother is doing well and taking such wonderful care of our babies. She is always in our thoughts.

All in a name...

We have enjoyed trying to pick out some names over the last couple of weeks. One of the most special parts of our research was finding the meaning of our surrogate~mothers' name...SUCCESS!! Heres hoping her namesake will be indicative of the outcome :)

We have a few favourites, and a couple of 'no-ways!'. I have been referring to the twins by Bs least favourites just as a stir. Luckily we are quite agreeable on the real ones!

Our scans are due this week, so really looking forward to those. I thought they were to be last week, but patience is a virtue, and we are well practiced in waiting. While everything remains fine and stable, its so much easier. No news really is good news.
