Cheering yourself up on a snowy day...

I'm still awaiting the birth of our first child. I'm unsure when I will be induced due to my liver condition, so just playing a waiting game of sleepless nights and itchy feet! As the days are starting to drag, I decided to use some sure fire ways of cheering myself up.

I really got a strong craving for some chocolate cake, but only had one egg left in the house. I found this recipe on the internet and it made a really moist lovely cake. I topped with some Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Icing. 

There's nothing like some girly movies to cheer you up, so I have been watching Clueless, Mansfield Park and the BBC series of Pride and Prejudice. I can not imagine that there's anything in the world that a bit of Darcy would not fix!

I've been enjoying sitting in a snuggly chair, cuddling up to a teddy and imagining life with our new little baby. At the moment our nursery is in neutral taupe and cream colours. I love the soft feeling in the nursery, especially in an evening when the lamps cast a beautiful warm light. I often go up for a little quiet ponder throughout the day.

Whilst up in the nursery, I love getting out all of the baby clothes and imagining the little being that will soon be filling these. My mother-in-law has been busily knitting and created more clothes that the baby could ever wear. My husband has decided that he is in charge of dressing the baby, as he fell in love with the cute little baby socks. 

My Auntie and cousins came round to see me and brought me some lovely Champneys pregnancy toiletries. My skin has been in a very bad condition due to the constant scratching, but a nice long soak and some of the rejuvenating lotions have definitely improved my mood. I love having a long soak in the bath. As we have a television in the wall above the bath, I often time my baths with something good to watch. My husband wonders how I can possibly stay in so long. I am trying to make the most of these, as I'm guessing with a newborn baby I wont get much chance for a leisurely dip in the tub. 

Well after that I do feel a lot more cheerful. Let's hope the weather improves, so I can venture out.
