Works in Progress: Inside and Out

Happy Friday! You'll be happy to hear the road resurfacing nightmare is over, and we now have a pristine street out front that really didn't need any work done in the first place. Must be the end of the fiscal year... our tax dollars hard at work.

London is bursting with construction from one end to the other in preparation for the Olympics, actually. Everywhere you turn, the city is polishing itself up in readiness for the five bazillion visitors who will soon be descending upon us. Should make for some interesting times!


Apart from the joys of asphalt, there's been another little development in my life -- currently about the size of a lemon! I'm happy to report that Mini TR will be joining us in early January. Mr TR and I had our first peek as he happily bounced around inside me yesterday, and the doctor informed us the baby was 'very male'. Yikes!

So, that's my latest work in progress. Thankfully, he'll do all the hard work himself -- no revisions or editing needed!

What are you working on these days, internally or externally? :) Have a great weekend, everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Congratulations, what exciting news! And no, I don't mean the asphalt! Get as much work done now, before the birth, because you will be a bit whoozy and exhausted for several months afterwards... but it's like mind-altering drugs, I suppose... which makes some people more creative...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  53. What lovely news! Congratulations to you both. x

  56. I can see the resemblance already!

    I think the little guy is going to need the initials T.R. Thomas Robert? Travis Ronald? Todd Ryan? The possibilities are endless!
