islandfairy With the first car ever registered on on our islands but that's NOTHING compared to Robin's facial expression here. This is my favourite photo of her to date. 10h

islandfairy Maia's dance lessons are my date one with this sweetheart. Sometimes I feel sad about her losing her baby of the family status so soon. 22h

islandfairy This girl has got talent. She's so musical and interprets music like a much older child. Pity she refuses to go to dance classes. 😐 4d
  •   sairycake Yeah Holly didn't last too long at baby ballet...too 'strong willed'! 4d
  •   islandfairy @sairycake I think they're still too young. Robin is the opposite...she becomes very shy when in a group. Having said that, Maia started at 3 and, 6 years later, it's still a big part of her life. 4d

islandfairy I'm slowly starting to feel like myself again but I'm taking it very very slowly. A word of advice to all furiously nesting pregnant ladies: take it easy. Getting everything looking the way you want it to is not worth sacrificing your health for. 1w
  •   islandfairy @rymina yes, indeed! worse than with the other 2. I'm trying to listen to my body more.x 1w
  •   josephafarrugia Last Wednesday i had a serious case of nesting, and i then had so many cramps and pains during the night i was scared the moment had arrived! 1w
  •   islandfairy @josephafarrugia mela konna synchronized! 1w
  •   carlitawelly That's right girl! Now take your own advice! 1w
  •   amybarba @islandfairy oh my gosh the nesting bug is strong in me. I was recently pregnant (unfortunately little guy wasn't strong enough and I lost him) but at only 8 weeks I started to rearrange and clean everything. So weird our instincts when we're expecting!! Take care of your self and that bundle!! 1w
  •   islandfairy @amybarba oh Amy I'm so so sorry! I now understand your sadness. I can't imagine. X 1w
  •   amybarba @islandfairy thank you. It's been a hard process. My bodies not doing everything it should. Fingers crossed I should be done with the complications this coming week though. I'm always amazed though about how we change so much while pregnant! Nature is so strange. 7d

islandfairy After 24 hrs of fever, I'm back on my two feet (more or less). Now I'm spending a few hours with the girls before going back to the building site that's become our home. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. They pulled me out of my misery at 4am. 1w
  •   islandfairy @annakelso no anna, we're just painting everywhere, having storage built and turning the laundry room into a 3rd bedroom. It's all stuff which should have been done years ago but we just kept procrastinating! I think building would have been less traumatic. At least we'd be living somewhere else. 1w
  •   annakelso We put a second story on our house while living there. The kids were 8,6, and 2. And a dog and a cat. I was always sweeping it seemed. 25 years later it's time to remodel. Did I just say that? 1w
  •   islandfairy @annakelso you're brave! the thought of going through this again makes me want to cry. Probably because I'm pregnant and was already stressed with the kids being unwell. There's also the fact that our houses are made of limestone. The fine dust from it is a nightmare. It gets through the tiniest of cracks and takes hours to clean (and triggers our allergies). 1w
  •   annakelso It is a challenge and allergies can make you miserable. Bet the girls like see the baby's room come together. You'll so appreciate it all when it's put back together. don't do too much. 1w
  •   allaboutg242 We've got some house refurbishing to do too and I don't know where to start from! And how we'll manage with Tom... 1w
  •   islandfairy @allaboutg242 if there's dust or paint involved, get him out of there. Also, use formaldehyde-free paint. And get all the help you can. X 1w
  •   allaboutg242 There'll be both! Yeah, I'll get someone to do it. Not lifting a paintbrush again (had done the spare bedroom and was more trouble than it was worth!) 1w
  •   islandfairy We got workmen to do everything but it's the cleaning that did it. Maybe because I'm 6 months pregnant, I don't know. Still, any kind of help will do! @allaboutg242 1w

islandfairy I thought I had just overdone it with the cleaning last night. But now I'm feverish and every inch of my body hurts. I'm posting this because I believe in the power of prayer and hope you'll spare a few seconds to say a little one for me, but especially for the baby inside me. 1w

  •   _ohabigail Already?! That seems quick but I bet it doesn't to you! 1w
  •   islandfairy @_ohabigail actually, time seems to be flying right now. The first trimester was a different matter but you know how that goes. 1w
  •   rymina Sweet baby bump!!! 1w
  •   thepoppiesgrow Crazy huh... Time's flying even bumpwise... I keed new legs especially! Mine are crisscrossed with the ugliest varices 1w

islandfairy Restless night, aching body, sick children, painters coming again in half an hour to produce more fine dust...I was feeling sorry for myself until I remembered the date. Now I'm thankful my family is alive, the baby inside me seems to be doing just fine and that all my woes are temporary. 1w

  •   myrnaivelisse Wow! That's a lot of paint! Good luck! 1w
  •   islandfairy @myrnaivelisse I didn't buy all that! That would be enough to paint our place 6 times over. 1w
  •   myrnaivelisse Hahaha! Thank God! I was like, "poor Mau"... Silly me 1w

  •   islandfairy @ktollipop the only person I can watch his films with is my husband. We gush about each frame in his films. I can't imagine how annoying it would be for others. 2w

islandfairy Tal-festa. View from our bedroom right now. 2w
  •   myrnaivelisse What are you celebrating? 2w
  •   islandfairy It's our village festa. Each village has its feast celebrating its patron saint for a week during summer. In the case of our village, it's the birth of Our Lady. 2w
  •   myrnaivelisse Nice! I'm starting to think that our islands are very much alike... Here we have "fiestas patronales". Each municipality celebrates a week long event with music and fun rides for the kids. Since we have 78 municipalities, they're kind of year-round. 2w
