I used this recipe with Crabbie's Orange Spiced Ginger Beer, and one of our blood oranges. I'm a bit disappointed - they're not very chocolatey, but you can't taste the other flavours either. On the upside, I made them gluten free, and that worked fine.

A Bunch of Threes

Yesterday was July 13. Which means that Andrew and I have been together for 13 years and 3 months and married for 3 years and 3 months. It also means that I'm 30 weeks pregnant, which is 3/4 of the way.

Baby Shower

 Last weekend, we had my baby shower. It's a bit early, but Sarah, my mini-me cousin was down from Canberra, and I wanted her to be there since it was possible.

The food was amazing. I made chocolate brownies. Jill made the giant neenish tart - I made a special request, because I love neenishes. Mishka made rosewater marshmallows and sponge cake. Mum made scones, and sausage rolls and toffeed popcorn. I'd be very surprised if anyone didn't overindulge!

 Jill and I (and Mum) hate most baby shower games, so instead, we had people decorating singlets for Lightbulb. I'm a bit disappointed that not everyone did it, but the results are fantastic.

 With my honorary sister-in-law, just showing off the growing belly.
Jill knitted this hat in the newborn size. Something tells me that the sizing is a little wonky...

Lightbulb is very spoiled with this HUGE pile of presents! I feel like we're both very loved.
