A busy day in the sun

Today has been glorious. My parents took DD out for the day to the local seaside to give hubby and me some peace and quiet. She returned covered in bracelets they'd won from the 2p machines in the arcade, full of ice cream and with a huge sun kissed smile. I am so please she'd had such a lovely day.
OH and I lounged around happily for a bit, then after a few hours found ourselves hopefully lost without DD getting into mischief. I ended up emptying my food cupboard and making a much needed list of things to use up. OH moved some furniture around and organised his Blu ray collection. Once we felt like we'd been a little bit productive we celebrated with another rest and while OH whiled away another hour on a video game, I got stuck into my current book.
At the moment I am reading Second Glance by Jodi Picoult. I am a huge fan of her books and have read the majority of them, this one seemed to have slipped past me as it is a few years old.
What are you all reading at the moment?

My return to the world of blogging

Well.... I think the picture above should tell you why I haven't been blogging for a while lol.
We are officially expecting bambino number 2 in August. And although the baby is happy and healthy and growing well, I am however suffering the joys of hyperemesis gravidarum. For those who haven't heard of it, HG is basically morning sickness on an industrial scale. Since Christmas I have pretty much been on bed rest and living on rich tea biscuits and banana milkshake (the only food and drink I could stomach). I have been lucky in that I have only been in hospital twice for dehydration which involved a night on a drip. But now as I have finally shaken off the worst of it I am feeling pretty low. My hair and skin is in a pitiful state after 3 months of poor nutrition and hydration, I am constantly catching colds (I swear I got one from watching someone sneeze on the TV at one point) and am finding it difficult to get back into eating.
But even through all this I am looking so forward to meeting our new arrival in August and now I am back on my feet I am desperate to start organising our home in preparation, so expect to see lots of organising posts on here in the coming weeks and months.
Today's task is making a food list of everything that is in our freezer and cupboards so I can work out we do and don't have in stock. Poor OH and DD have been living on microwave meals and processed junk so we all need some healthy nutritious foods to boost us up again.

I've missed you guys x x x
