Marvelous Monday Link Party #70

Marvelous Monday Linky Party

Welcome to Marvelous Monday!

Firstly I would like to apologize for the lack of Marvelous Monday last week (I’m hoping you missed it that is!!).  I have been quite unwell the past month or two and about 10 days ago I was struck down with Influenza.  I used up all my energy just getting out of bed in the morning, let alone going anywhere near my computer, so my blog has been sadly neglected the past couple of weeks.

Why have I been unwell the last couple of months??  I’ll let my daughter tell you!

Introducing pregnancy

I am 18 weeks pregnant!  My first pregnancy was not good and this one is not looking to be much better.  I am not one of those women who glow with pregnancy and certainly do not have an easy time of it.  But hey….I think my daughter’s grin shows just how excited she is and all the problems now will be worth it in a few months time.

A difficult pregnancy combined with the flu hit me to rock bottom, so please forgive me for going blogging awol.  I will try and get back on track ASAP!

Anything exciting been happening for you lately that you would like to share?

Despite being unwell, we still managed to get a post out on the blog last week (thank goodness for scheduling!).  It’s my daughter’s 3rd birthday party (well overdue considering she is 4 in 2 weeks!) Here it is in case you missed it.

      Your welcome Melinda. Thanks for sharing with us each week 🙂

    Aw! Congratulations, Catherine! I understand how un-fun pregnancy can be, and hope you’re feeling better soon!

    • Catherine Holt September 14, 2015 at 7:34 pm #

      Thanks Raia. It would be nice to have a “glowing” pregnancy, but I can’t see that happening. But it will all be worth it in the end 🙂

    Congratulations Catherine!! Wishing you all the best.

    Congrats Catherine and Family! Hope you are feeling better soon. We missed you last week!

    • Catherine Holt September 14, 2015 at 7:33 pm #

      Thanks Bren….I missed being here too! The flu seems to have shifted now, so back on track 🙂

  5. Kirsten @ Treat Yourself Sweeter September 14, 2015 at 8:00 pm #

    Definitely missed you .. I think I checked back about 5 times. I am so excited for you all 🙂 R will make a fabulous big sister… look at the sweet, innocent grin… just waiting to teach the new bub all the ways to wrap Mum and Dad around her little finger! The blog will keep on keeping… just look after yourself. I hope you feel better soon!

    • Catherine Holt September 15, 2015 at 1:59 pm #

      Aww thanks Kirsten. It’s nice to know you kept coming back 🙂 Yes, she is a bit of a bundle of mischief isn’t she. If she teaches this little one everything she knows then I am in real trouble…lol

    Happy Bday to your little one and congrats on your bundle of joy that’s on the way. I know how hard being pregnant can be so I wishing you all the best and that you will have more good days then bad

    • Catherine Holt September 15, 2015 at 1:51 pm #

      Thank you 🙂 Almost at the half way point now and all things considered it went pretty quickly. I think the year will fly by 🙂

  7. Aspen Jay September 14, 2015 at 10:50 pm #

    Congrats on the upcoming little bundle of joy Catherine!!! That is very exciting news indeed! I’m so sorry that you aren’t feeling well. Were you sick the entire time during your previous pregnancy? Hopefully you get to feeling better soon! Are you hoping for a specific gender? Babies are ALWAYS exciting news! Thanks for sharing and for hosting the party! 🙂

    • Catherine Holt September 15, 2015 at 1:49 pm #

      Thanks so much. Unfortunately I was also very sick with my first, but at least I knew what to expect this time…which I think helps 🙂 I don’t mind what we have, but my daughter is hoping for a girl…lol

  8. Gina September 14, 2015 at 11:28 pm #

    Well congrats!!! Hoping it will get better for you so you can enjoy this special time!!

    Thank you for sharing my sandwich- you made my Monday!

    • Catherine Holt September 15, 2015 at 1:48 pm #

      Thanks Gina. Recovering from the flu has certainly helped that’s for sure 🙂

  9. Antonia September 15, 2015 at 2:10 am #

    Congrats on the new life in you!!

    • Catherine Holt September 15, 2015 at 1:46 pm #

      Thanks so much Antonia. It’s certainly very exciting 🙂
