Reasons to Celebrate, be they ever so Tiny

Drum roll please.

Today is CD1 again.

Right in the middle of a meeting in Braveheart country, it arrived. I feel like painting my face blue in celebration though as this was a 38 day cycle. Only 10 days longer than a normal one!!

I know, as a pre-menopausal old crone, it means nothing really but what the heck. I am sure we will be back to normal with 54 or 84 days next time haha!

Katie at Maybe Expectant is hopefully on bedrest after her 2nd IVF transfer. These photos from my kitchen are for her inspiration. I like to call it "Triptych of Tea and Sausages".

More "before" kitchen pics will follow to demonstrate the shocking conditions I am forced to cook in.

Shhh... I know I should be in bed, but OH GOD-- IRISH SAUSAGES! There is nothing better in the world. Oh, I wish I were at your house right now and we'd have some tea and eat those sausages right up! Bed rest be damned! Thank you!

I'll stick with the tea as well. Got any scones?

God I love Stirling. You know both of my sisters graduated from there, yeah?

And though the sausages look lovely, I'd rather have some choccy biscuits. Thanks.

Oh, sorry. Almost too distracted to congratulate you on having the painters in (just learned that one today) right on schedule!
