easter in belfast

We spent Easter weekend in Belfast visiting extended family (we visited before on our honeymoon, and they visited us in Vancouver), which is why things have been quite here for a bit. It was a great trip and we’re both looking forward to going back in the future and hopefully having Heather come visit us here soon.

Pregnancy-wise: I take back everything I said two weeks ago about finally getting good at this. All these new hormones have sent me on an emotional rollercoaster recently and that coupled with a bad cut on my pinkie finger has made the last week a bit of a funk. This picture shows a bit of my new figure, if you’d like to check out my latest expansion, leave us a message.

And about that cut on my finger … all quilters will know about the crazy sharp rotary cutters we use to slice and dice our fabric and exactly how easy it would be to let your mind wander and nip a finger, which is why I feel so stupid about the whole thing. Fortunately Cory was amazing and this experience convinced me that during childbirth I’ll be able to rely on him completely to negotiate with the hospital staff and take good care of me and the wee one.

    You were within 100 yards of the best ice cream shop in Northern Ireland. Hope you had a 99 in The Cabin. :-)

    ah, you guys look great! glad you enjoyed belfast.

    The wound required a paperstitch to hold the partially removed flap of skin onto the finger. Fortunately it was not severe enough to require stitches but it sure did bleed a lot. I guess you would expect than what you uncover a significant area worth of capillaries.

    Been there, done that. Ali had to take me to the hospital when it wouldn’t stop bleeding. Did you require stitches?
