The last few days have been glistening with sun and I've done countless loads of washing. We just discovered that Daniel is allergic to house dust mites and a few pollens and so I've been washing, airing and rearranging all of our winter woolens and blankets. Nothing like strong sunlight to whisk away the cobwebs and the sneezes.
I rearranged the bedroom too - in preparation for the creation of baby's corner. While it would be nice to create a whole new nursery for baby I think it's completely unnecessary. Che was in our room for his first two years (and he still comes to visit in the middle of the night) so I'm well aware that this baby does not need a room of his or her own just yet. We're lucky in that our bedroom is definitely big enough for a king size bed, a baby and a few extra bits of furniture. I'm keeping the colour scheme soft and neutral with little bits of handmade goodness here and there; a moses basket, a vintage mirror and a chest of drawers. I'm a few rows off finishing a hand knitted baby blanket and there's a wooden bird to hang from the ceiling. Then I'll wash the baby blankets, little singlets, onesies and socks. I'll buy nappies, wipes, muslin burp cloths and tui balm. And then I'll wait. For baby.
