End of an era...

Sadly our little dog Douglas who was 15 1/2 yrs old passed away suddenly on Thursday evening. He'd been losing weight for a couple of months and was under treatment for suspected bowel disease which seemed to be stabilizing him.. in the end though it was his heart that gave out. It was extremely quick which was a blessing but we are all still trying to come to terms with the fact he's gone...

I keep expecting him to appear at our feet when we're having our breakfast, lunch & dinners hopeful of scraps. Not to mention watching out for him trying to trip me up as I pottered around the flat or demanding attention when we'd get home from running errands.

He will be sorely missed but we do have our expected new arrival to the Kelly family to come. Yes he/she is not here just yet. So I am now officially the most pregnant I've been in my entire life and baby #2 is now a day overdue...  hopefully not long before we have some happier news for you all.

 Rest at peace my loyal loveable Douglas xoxox

Only one week till my due date... eeek!

Just a very quick post with photos of my enormous 39wk bump taken today... only one week till due date now and so far no signs of anything exciting happening.

 Who knows when things will get going & i'm really hoping to not be in labour a week tomorrow as it is my birthday!! I would really like to keep that one day to myself :)

One way or another there'll be a new arrival in the Kelly household no later than the 27th of May as that's the latest date the hospital will let me go to before they want to do a CS....

Will keep you all posted when the time comes. Fi xoxox

Jaffa cake style cup cakes


Yummy orange sponges drizzled with a orange/sugar syrup and topped with dark chocolate.. freshly dribbled with Green & Blacks 70% dark chocolate first thing this morning. All they need to do is set and then devoured later on!
Inspired by Blotted copybooks delicious Jaffa loaf cake... The recipe for which can be found on her blog http://www.blottedcopybook.co.uk/jaffa-cake-loaf/

I was just too impatient to wait for a loaf cake to cook so I used the cake batter to do cupcakes instead... as they take only 20mins to cook in the oven :)

I know i've been a very sparse blogger during this pregnancy...

I didn't realise how tired i'd be running around after Finn and being pregnant. There's not long till my due date now... under 2wks to go till the 15th May!

I must take a bump picture this week to show you all as I look like i'm carrying a Zeppelin airship!
