Bubette is now 4 weeks old!

Yeah Yeah! I know! I've been slack with not sharing the latest goss on Bubette!...

Actually I've been naughty...

I HAVE been blogging with updates... just not on this blog!

I didn't want to bombard this blog with all baby stuff (as that's all my life consists of at the moment!) So I set up another blog dedicated to Bubette for my friends and family to keep updated. I was planning on copying each post over to this blog, but I didn't want to bore everyone with continuous baby talk and also I've been too busy to change the names in all the posts to our annon names, or even to sign out and sign in back and forth to each blog! (Do you know how time consuming that actually is?!)

Also because this blog is annonomous (to protect my RAT GirL identity :-P) I didn't want strangers to know my real name, or for unwanted visitors to find me in search engine and link me to my RG comic! So for that reason I couldn't post the link to Bubettes blog publicly.

BUT! All of my regular readers and blogging friends are most welcome to check it out if you're interested! And if you would like the link to it just let me know and I'll be happy to email it to ya! You can read all about the birth experience and Bubettes health concerns, or you can just scroll through and check out all the piccys of her (there's quite a bit to catch up on.. I don't expect anyone to read it all!)

I'll still use this blog occassionally to vent here and there! But for now I am so busy with my lil mini me, that I just don't have the time to think about myself! LOL! But all updates on the baby will be on the other blog.

Let me know if you want the link!!! :-)

AT LAST!!! She's here! And we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful little blessing!

Please meet our pride and joy...

Kayla Jewel
(aka Bubette!)...

Isn't she beautiful?

Hubby and I still don't know how we managed to create something so cute!!! *giggles*

For having the closest correct guesses on our online baby pool!

Your prize will be on it's way to you shortly!

For everyone else who took part... if you'd like to see how you scored, you can check it out HERE.

Just a quick post about the gorgeous Bubette (Because you were all right! Finding the time to do ANYTHING is impossible with the wee one demanding attention all the time!... But she's worth it!)

This little miracle is very lucky to be alive! The birth was horrendous!!! I'll explain the full story when I get more time, but long story short - As if being an insulin baby wasn't bad enough for her, the poor little bugger came out with the cord wrapped around her neck with her little arm caught up in it. She was in extreme distress and had to be taken away immediately into special care.

It was a very scary experience... I thought we had lost her! But she has made a fantastic recovery and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect little angel!

I'll come back another time to explain more... but in the mean time here is a wee video of her.

On this night she was full of smiles (crazy eh?!) But we couldn't capture it in a photo... so we tried to video it, only this time it was just gas! *giggles* ...

Thanks EVERYONE for all your support! xx

OK... I know ya's aren't expecting to hear from me until the Bubette is out... but I just HAD to do a post about a very special angel of a blogger!!!...


Nite is a very dear friend to a lot of us, in fact I'd be very surprised if you don't know who the heck she is by now!! If you don't... then I insist you go and check out her blog NOW, because life without Nitebyrd is simply not worth living! *GiGGLeS*

Seriously... not only is her blog writing hilariously addictive... but this woman has a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE heart of gold!!!

I woke up very cranky this morning! I'm at that stage where I am SOOOO OVER being pregnant and especially because while this grommit is inside of me... I have to keep injecting myself with HIDEOUS needles and whats worse is I'm not allowed my chocolate!!! *SIGH* So I was a very miserable little poopy pants this morning!

But then I had a visit from Postman Twat!... Although he's not my most favourite visitor in the world, what he was about to hand me was to turn my cranky mood into a burst of excited energy! SO much that I actually got some well needed nesting done, rather than sit on my big fat arse and sulk for the rest of the day which I would have done had this parcel never arrived! *HeHe*

At first I had no idea who it was from or what it was about, but I saw it was all the way from America and I actually thought at first that it had been sent to me by mistake!

But then I opened it...

First I found a gorgeous little card saying...

"To Giggle & Hubby...
A little something for your new little somebody!...
Love & Hugs, Nitebyrd."

I WAS OVER THE MOON!!!!!! And what followed was such a delightful surprise... I just about gave BIRTH!!!...

I mean LOOK AT ALL THIS STUFF!!! This kind of INCREDIBLE gift is something you would expect from a BUNCH of close friends or family that have all chipped in to get a box of goodies together!

But this is ALL from ONE SWEETHEART of a lady, who I've never met in person who lives all the way in AMERICA!!! :-O and even the postage would have cost an arm and a leg on it's own!

Can you believe the heart of gold of this woman?!!! I'm ABSOLUTELY SPEECHLESS!!!

No words can express my appreciation to you Nitebyrd! Thank you just does not seem like enough! Hubby was even more blown away than I was... he just can't believe it, he too is truly grateful and blown away by your generosity!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! We can't wait to dress up the Bubette in all these gorgeous outfits! xoxoxoxoxoxox

As soon as I opened the parcel I came straight on here to Thank Nite, and I had discovered that she has actually opened her own little shop since I've been gone! It's SOOOO COOL!

She makes and sells these gorgeous little odd and unusual items such as beaded jewelery with sculls and things! Go and check it out! I am soooo getting me a ZOMBIE MOMMIE!!! They are SO COOL!

Also while I came on here, I was THRILLED to see that there had been lots of comments left for me on my last post! Thanks so much everyone for your kind thoughts and comments... I thought for sure you had all forgotten about me! LOL

So my day turned from a cranky one to feeling the love from EVERYBODY!!! :-) I almost don't care that I'm not allowed to eat chocolate anymore! :-P... Almost!

While I had my camera out (I've had it packed in my hospital bag but brought it out to take piccys of Nites lovely gifts) I decided to take a quick snapshot of the nursery to show you the colour scheme we went with.

Green, white, yellow and purple...

We're pretty happy with how it turned out! :-)

I Couldn't Be Bloggered!!!

I know, I know I've been a BAD, BAD Blogger!!! But seriously, I am sooooo fat and hot and bothered these days that I honestly can not bare to be at the computer for more than 2 minutes at a time! *SIGH* It's just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOT!!!! So I am very sorry and I want you all to know that I do still love you all very much! *flutters eyelashes*

(Seriously I like had to go for 2 breaks just writing that paragragh alone! LOL)

Anyways... quick update for those who still love me :-P... I'm 37weeks today and a lot has happened in my pregnancy since my last post!

Long story short, the dumbarse medical staff stuffed up my Gestational Diabetes results and after all that it turns out I DO have it! SO unfortunately it went untreated for a long time and there were a few complications with the Bubette!

Luckily nothing too serious, she's a little on the bigger side (and her belly is a little bigger than the rest of her) but to stop her from getting any bigger... they've had to put me on INSULIN!!! (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!) Yep! I now have to give myself 2 needles a day... and I fecking HATE needles!!!! *sniff sniff*

But... they are looking at inducing me at 38weeks (38weeks is Christmas day ffs! So they'll probably do it a bit after that!) And that's if she doesn't decide to make the move before that! So anytime now peoples.... ANYTIME!!!

When this is all over and I get my body back... I promise I'll get back to my good lil blogging self and get back to my regular Blogging life! So bare with me!!!

Until then.. I'm going back on Maternity leave... and the next time you hear from me, I will have had the Bubette! EEEEEEEEEEEK!!!! :-O

But I'll leave you with a Giggle (Coz that's what I do best :-P)...

I came across this cool little website ages ago where you upload your photo, your partners photo, and it predicts what your baby is going to look like...

So I wanted to share the result with yas...

WHat do you get when you cross RAT GiRL, with RAT GiRL's Bitch?.........

A DUCK??????

I hope the rest of you are all doing well... Have yourselves a Merry little Christmas and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

*GiGGLeS* xx

Earth lost another Angel... But Heaven gained one...

Sorry I've been away so long, I've been recovering from a bit of a mental breakdown as things have been extremely stressful lately.

I was finally getting back on track again, and had my parents over for dinner tonight to show them some appreciation for all their love and support, they have helped me through so much (Thank you so much again Mum and Dad xx)

But just when I thought that all the heartache was over... unfortunately while we were waiting for dinner, something made me look outside and my heart shattered to find that Albert had just been run over by a car, and his limp little body was laying dead on the road just outside our house. Apparently Hubby heard a thump, but I didn't hear a thing... but something came over me to look outside anyway.

Thank god I didn't hear the thump, because I know the sound would have haunted me for the rest of my life.

The woman driver was just as distraught as I was and stopped to give her condolences. I don't resent her what so ever as I know it was just an accident, and just a case of Albert having no sense of danger and running under the wheel of her car before she could stop. (It's such a shame that animals have no road sense.)

I am very grateful to her that she had stopped though, otherwise I would have imagined the worst and put it down to the arsehole hooligans that have no compassion for animals and target them like bullseyes, with their mad reckless driving up and down our neighbourhood!

I feel better knowing that is was an accident and he died instantly without suffering, rather than finding him later tonight wondering for the rest of my life how long he may have suffered for.

Though I am still truly saddened by his loss, as he was very, very special to me. I tried to stay strong while my parents were here, but I fell apart as soon as they left, and it's going to take me some time to accept that he is gone.

It's just such a shame that we lost him so soon... it wasn't that long ago that we only just rescued him.

He was a very affectionate cat, so full of love and had the heart of an angel.

If you don't know the full story of Albert and are interested, you can read it here.

Please spare a thought for the little angel... he will be missed dearly by me.
