Sunshine, food and birthday celebrations

I love being back in Malaysia especially during the winter months (although I gather it's unseasonally warm in the UK!) Oh well, we were supposed to go skiing in Switzerland and I hear there is no snow. Wow!

Apart from enjoying the warm (but wet weather), I am also enjoying the food here in KL. We've had SO MUCH to eat - so much so that on top of the baby, I think I'm growing a food baby too. My tummy is huge. I was about 5 months pregnant with Aidan when I looked this big. I guess there goes my six pack! Not that I ever had one anyway!

I've also hit the magical second trimester phase where the morning, noon and night sickness has passed and I've had bundles more energy. I was also able to complete Kiri in time for my Mum's brithday. However, I was afraid that I might run out of yarn. I finished 10 repeats of the pattern. After blocking, the shawl came the perfect size for Keira. It's a bit on a small side for an adult. Oh well, I guess I could always make another one. It's a lovely pattern. Very easy to memorise and the yarn (Kaalund expressions) was just lovely.Mum loves her shawl. Here is Keira modelling it.

We've also spent the last 5 days in Koh Samui, Thailand celebrating mum's birthday. This is a first family holiday for a long time for my siblings and my parents. Bright sunshine and fab food again. Lots of shopping too.

It looks and sounds like you're having a wonderful time. The shawl is absolutely beautiful.

I think you can block out the shawl a bit more. What a lovely colour!!

Hope to see you this saturday.
