islandfairy She had both of us all to herself all morning and she was in heaven! I hope she will always know how loved she is, even though she got to hog the 'littlest one' spotlight for very little. 1d

islandfairy This girl and I made up for a sleepless night with naps and snuggles. For the first time in ages, I ignored the clothes on the floor, the dirty dishes and the toys everywhere. Guess what? The world didn't end. 2d

islandfairy Life is so strange and unpredictable and wonderful and terrifying. And I'm in such a philosophical mood today. #darnedhormones #36.5weeks #3rdsaguna 4d
  •   mercandjones I wants another bebe... D'uh. 4d
  •   islandfairy @mercandjones oh. Of course you do! And you will. Remember I'm a few years older than you. You're still in very good time.x 4d
  •   theprettywalrus Won't be long now ;-) x 4d
  •   annakelso Gosh this reminds me of me 27 years ago. This part seems like yesterday. I was big as a house. 4d
  •   islandfairy @annakelso it's so easy to forget the last few weeks, isn't it? The arrival of the baby eclipses everything else so every time I'm in the last month I'm shocked at how painful/confusing/neverending this phase is. 4d
  •   annakelso yes it is. Last night we watched a show called The Amazing Race. That episode was filmed in Malta. It's beautiful. 4d
  •   islandfairy @annakelso really? Our islands are getting quite a bit if coverage lately between tv shows and Hollywood films being filmed here! 4d

islandfairy As the baby's arrival draws nearer, I am getting overly sentimental about these being the last days with only two children. It is no less poignant than the transition from one child to two. 5d
  •   johannamacgregor I'm 37 weeks with number 2 and feeling the exact same way ! Exhausted but also dying to take my daughter on Mummy-daughter dates every day. 4d
  •   islandfairy @johannamacgregor and your girl is still so small...I understand perfectly how you feel. First borns are so special. 4d

islandfairy @myrnaivelisse #widn is checking my messages/IG feed while cuddling Robin and waiting for Maia to wake up so we can have breakfast together. In other news, my belly looks ENORMOUS here (and it is) but the good news is that it's finally starting to drop a little. People, I can breathe again! Over to you @mrsnomi @bethielethie and @augustabelle, #widn? #36weeks #3rdsaguna 7d
  •   mrsnomi that is some bump! Glad you're feeling more comfortable and thanks for the tag, I'll play once there's actual daylight, we're going to see Sinterklaas arrive in town today so there should be plenty to photograph! xx 7d
  •   islandfairy @mrsnomi oooh! Exciting! 7d
  •   myrnaivelisse Horray, for breathing again!!! 6d

islandfairy I think I can safely say this will be the last pumpkin/butternut squash I'll be cooking in a long while. I don't have the energy to wrestle with them anymore. (@mrsnomi made me think of you) 1w
  •   seamh If you microwave for 20-30 seconds they are much easier to cut :) 1w
  •   islandfairy @seamh I should have asked for tips before! I love them but it's a workout every time. 1w
  •   beadlor I freeze it. Took out two bags this morning, one cubed and another shredded for soup and pie. Love da pumpkin 1w
  •   islandfairy @beadlor it's peeling them that drives me bananas! I do love them but I'll probably substitute them with sweet potato for now. 1w
  •   beadlor I know, I'm always afraid of cutting myself. 6d
  •   ajkins If you roast them you can leave the skins on and then very easy to remove or you can just eat it as it is so soft! 6d

islandfairy Did you know our salt pans date from the time of the Romans? Because I didn't. 1w

islandfairy Observing the salt pans. She was so jealous when I told her I used to walk on their edges as a child. Now they are (rightly so) protected. 1w

islandfairy The earliest I've ever prepared for Christmas. 1w
  •   allaboutg242 I've got 2 wrapped 1w
  •   islandfairy @allaboutg242 two out of how many? If it's out of 5, you're doing better than me. I wrapped about 4/5 of all ours and still have 10-12 gifts to wrap! 1w
  •   aplacetoshare I love that paper! If I lived closer, I'd ask where you got it. I'm doing everything early this year too… Ival to not be in the same position I am in every single holiday. 1w
  •   beadlor Bought my first present today. Way behind 1w
  •   islandfairy @aplacetoshare it's from a supermarket! I like it too because it's basically brown paper with stars so it's stronger. @beadlor I'm only preparing so early because I want everything done before the baby comes. Otherwise I wouldn't have even started! 1w
  •   allaboutg242 The only two bought till now! I'm not in the Christmas spirit yet 1w
  •   josephafarrugia Wow! I'm still deciding what to buy everyone!! 1w

islandfairy Maia's is a little more detailed. #thingsidontwanttoeverforget 1w
  •   denisebuttigieg Love her xxx 1w
  •   xar_m 1w
  •   myrnaivelisse I couldn't read this earlier... This is golden! Just like in Norway the toilet theme repeats... 1w
  •   islandfairy @myrnaivelisse I know! a few years back Father Christmas had told her not to use half a roll of TP every time she went to the loo and she's slacking again. I had written a blog post about it, now you're reminding me! 1w
  •   msgourmet Dante told Lucia last week that I'm *really* Santa! Oh, the trauma. 1w
  •   islandfairy @msgourmet we've been discussing it for a couple of years, same with tooth fairy. I tell her that she can choose to believe in magic or not. So far she has chosen to. 1w
  •   msgourmet We have a similar policy 'if you believe you receive'. She's s believer, but she also trust her brother. Utterly gutted. 1w

islandfairy Few things make me happier than hearing the words "just one more page...". But how do I get her to try Harry Potter? She's adamant she'll never read them! 1w
  •   ktollipop Caroline used to say that, too. Give it time...she'll eventually open that first book and never look back :) 1w
  •   islandfairy @ktollipop I'm keeping my fingers crossed. 1w
  •   annakelso There is so much to choose from. You never know. 1w
