and in other news..!!

I have something rather exciting to share..

There's going to be a wee addition to our family this year. Yep, bambino number two is on the way!! 

We're all very excited!! Even Thom points to my ever expanding belly regularly, exclaiming 'Baaayyybeee'. I have no idea what he could possibly imagine that means however..

Now 17 weeks up the duff and thankfully over some pretty horrendous 'morning' sickness, I've reached that happy, slightly more energetic stage...  

I'm soo hungry too!! I've had some ferocious cravings this time... Anything pickled (I know, such a cliche), naughty quite disgusting things like chicken nuggets and really hot/sour foods, like Vindaloo and jalapenos straight from the jar.. 

I'm sure all this acid can't be good for my poor stomach, but I can't help myself! 

pickles, pickles, pickles!!

A couple of weeks ago, I couldn't stop thinking about the spicy Buffalo Wings.. 
It got so bad, I nearly convinced my husband to drive an hour and a half down the coast so I could satisfy my craving.  Luckily he brought me to my senses and suggested I try making my own..

I found this recipe on the web had a crack. They turned out quite well, maybe a tad to sticky. I would use a lot less butter next time and bake them again, basted with the sauce. Still they did the trick..

Anyone else with crazy cravings to share??


  1. Congratulations! So exciting. I loved hot and spicy food when I was pregnant...fortunately I never had morning would've been a different story. xx

  2. I have only one thing to say... and that's HURRAH!

  3. Oooohhhh....congratulations! Very exciting news!

  4. OH! So nice! Congratulations!!!

  5. Thanks so much everyone for the well wishes..!! I can't believe I'm almost half way there already!! xx
