Lapsed ja emad/ babys and mothers

Naljakas see emadus. Kõik nagu korras. Ei iivelda, ei ole väga suurt väsimust ja siis saad kuskilt nohu ning köha ja kohutav paanika lahti kohe. Ja kes mõtles enne, et mina olen rahulik, mõistlik ja mõistusega inimene ja ei pabista tühja tähja pärast. Aga näe ei anna rahu. Kui ikka põnn otsustab juba 15+ nädalal endast märku anda kohatise puksimisega ja siis peale nohu/köha rallit on vaikus majas on paanika platsis. Ja eks siis tulebki jalad selga võtta ja arstile igaks juhuks minna. Õnneks on mul väga vahva ja arusaaja arst dr Nääb. Ja nii ta siis eile näitaski, et põnn täitsa olemas, süda lööb mis kole ja vähemalt 4 sõrme on ühel käel olemas. Vend naeris, et nagu Simpsonid. Kahju vaid, et mees kaasa ei saanud see kord tulla. Aga ma ehmatasin ta selle 4 sõrme jutuga väga ära. Ta nimelt arvas, et rohkem näppe polegi. Aga ju ikka on kuskil peidus :) Ja siis nägi ta pildil veel mingit poiste eritunnust, aga ma naersin, et küljelt tehtud pildil vaevalt sul mingeid tunnuseid näha on. Igatahes istub ta seal ilusti selg vastu seina põlved veidi krõnksus ja on eluga rahul. Ja nüüd toksib jälle vahest mind kergelt.

Ja üldse see lapse kasvamine üks kahtlane tegevus. Kui ta on suutnud nädalaks 16+ kasvada 17 cm pikkuseks siis see teeb praktiliselt 1 cm nädalas. Mõtle kui ise ka nii kasvaks. Kuskilt on meelde jäänud ütlus, et kui laps kasvaks sama kiiresti edasi 1 eluaasta jooksul, kui ta kasvab oma esimestel 3 elukuul, siis oleks ta aastaselt 60 kg raske. Uhh.

I had some worries about the baby last weekend because I got cold and had terrible throat aces. So yesterday I went to se a doctor. And she is really nicea. She showed me in ultrasound that babys hart is still beating like little engine and everyting is OK. I even saw 4 fingers. I thing one is hidden somewhere. And baby is growing. She is 17 cm long now. It is 1 cm for every week almost.

KIP


World Wide KIP

Ka meie võtame osa sellisest toredast üritusest. Tammsaare pargis siis kogunemine ja loodame, et meile ei tehta märkust kordineerimatu kogunemise osas. Rahumeelsed varraste klõbistajad on ju väga mitte poliitilised ja äärmisel juhul võiks me lammaste elukvaliteedi tõstimse pärast kisa tõsta ja nõuda paksema ja pikema villaga lambaid :)

So. Estonian team will also gather and we hope we don't get any troubles because of the public gathering. Last weeks are quite interesting, because we have some problems with some old statues symbolising Soviet Uninon occupation. Some people thing this kind of statues don't belong to the city centre but some think they should stay. Now Police has declared that no one can't go and keep a meeting near the Bronz solder. But we knitters are quite calm corwd and only thing we could claim about is sheeps rights and we could demand longer and thiker woolled sheeps :)

Käekoti sisu/ purse

Kuna Aet arvas, et ma võiks oma käekoti sisu revideerida, siis ma võiks ju sinna sisse vaadata. Väljast paistab mu kott päris väike, aga sisse mahub kohati palju. praegu siis
1. Maja põhiplaani visand et saaks projekteerima hakata
2. kaks pastakat
3. üks kastan
4. üks nr 3 heegelnõel metallist
5. SUUR rahakott
6. Raseda kaart
7. telefon
8. taskurätte
9. suur aidamehe võtmete kimp

Aga samas on mu kotis olnud ka metallpuuri komplekte, tavotti mootorrattale, nr 13 mutrivõti ja muid vajalikke jubinaid. Tihti eksib sinna ka tokk villa või puuvilla.

Et kes siis edasi seda jada jätkaks. NO Inx võiks oma koti sisu teistega jagada ja ematehnik ka.

We hav a campain to tell others what is in your purse. My purse is quite small but inside are quite lot of things.
1. Drawing about how we should do our house
2. two pens
3. one chestnut
4. one metal nr 3 crochet hook

Elu / Life

Nii palju asju on mille pärast võiks natuke norida, norutada ja vihastada. Et okupatsiooni monument on seal kus ta on. Et Eesti lippu veeti nagu mingit kaltsu. Et inimesed ei saa haigekassalt raha kuigi nende elujanu ja lootused on kõrgel. Et presidendi kandidaatideks on sellised mehed nagu nad on. Aga kui proovida neid suuri asju parandama hakata siis ei jõua kuhugi. Seega tuleb alustada väikestest asjadest enda ümber.

Seega teen jõudumööda kodus ajakirjade sügise, talve projekte. Alustasin Secret Pal 8 ga. Lõpetasin edukalt kevadise sessi ühe 3, ühe 5, ühe arvestuse ja ühe veel teadmata aga lootustandvalt 5ga. Kasvan vaikselt laiusesse ja olen ise ülimalt rahul sellega. Kuigi kilosid juures ju vaid 2. Otsime aktiivselt oma kodu jaoks krunti. Ja planeerime suvist ringreisi Slovakkia mägedesse. Päästa poes väikesi lapsi autoteele jooksmast, sest vaene ema on lapse silmist kaotanud, kui kõiki oma kotte ja tavaari sülle ladus. Oh loodan, et mu laps nii jalga ei lase, aga samas olime me emaga suht sarnaselt riides. Hea et märkasin ja põnn, vaevu vist 1,5 aastane oli ka vapper ja ei ehmatanud minu peale ära. Ühesõnaga tegevusi palju. Ja seega kui neid teha võiks ju minu ümber olev väike maailm veidi paraneda.

I have so many big things to worry and be angry about. That the monument of soviet union is still in our capital centre. That Estonian flag was treated like some kind of rag. That helthcare dont support those who has will to live and are willing to train and develop. That candidates for president elections are those who they are. But if I try to fix these things I can't do much. So start with little things in your life.

So I do and finish projects for autumn and winter for magazines. Started with Secret Pal 8. Finished successfuly exams in university this year with, one 5, one 3, one passed and one hopefully also 5. Im growing slowly in width and I am really happy with that. I only have 2 kg more but I have 5 months to go :) We are looking place to build our own house. Planning summer vacation in Slovakkia Tatra mountains. Saving small children from running to the road´, bevause mother and I weared same clothing and he, only 1,5 years old, mistakenly took me as his mother and got lost. So I'm buisy. And if I finish these all, my world will be really good around me. Maybe then big things and saving the world:)

nädalavahetus / Weekend


Ja tegelikult oli nädalavahetus ka väga vahva. Kõigepealt sain kätte osa oma sünnipäeva kingist. See hunnik raamatuid siis nüüd minu ja mina väga väga rahul. Sinine on veidi liiga intensiivne aga teine värv täitsa OK.

Teine vahva asi oli pakk Inglismaalt minu SP7 hellitatavalt. Ta saatis mulle tänutäheks veidi fantastilist kirjut lõnga ja väga head sokolaadi ning ühe vahva kaltsunuku mustri ka.

Ja lõpuks tuli minu teine SP7 sõber, kes mind hellitas kingitustega, eestisse. See oli tõeliselg vahva. Saime tema hotellis kokku siis Sokolaadi kohvik Vene tänaval. Siis Katariina gild ja lõpuks 4 tundi mööda vanalinna ja käsitöö poode. Ja loomulikult käisime me eesti kästiöö poodides. Mida ta ostis ja tegi on näha siit.

Actually weekend was really greate. Firstly I got my late birthday present. This pile of books is now mine and I'm really satisfied.

Secondly was pacage from England from my SP7 friend. She sent me some fantastic colored wool and some good chocolate and one great ragdoll pattern to. Thanks Sue.

And finaly my SP7 spoiler visited Estonia. This was totaly great. First we met in hotel and then Chocolate caffe and then Tallinn old town and craft shops. What she saw and what we did you can read here.

Meie / We

Ok ok. Kuna kõik siin juba pikemat aega oletusi teevad siis ma võin neid ju kinnitada. Nimelt jah me ootame oma esimest pisikest. See on ka põhjuseks, miks ma viimasel ajal eriti midagi ei tee. Igatahes on ta minu arvates tüdruk ja mehe arvates poiss. Kuigi ega me tegelikult ei tea. Vara ju veel ka ning ega enne niikuinii kindel olla ei saa kui ta meiega on. Igatahes on tal minu nina - suur selline :) See oli esimene kord kui ma teda eile ultrahelis nägin. Eelmine kord nägi vaid mees südame lööke. Mulle ei nädatudki.

Lilypie Expecting a baby Ticker

Ok. I can reveal to all now I think. We are expecting our first baby in November. And that is the reason why I don't do much lately. Yesterday we saw baby in ultrasound monitor. I would call her She but my husband He :) Actually we don't know yet. She's got my nose - big one. This was my first time to see her. Last time only my husband saw hartbeats.
