Cakes and bakes

It sure is exhausting being pregnant, I'm tired all the time. And it'll only get worse from here on lol But I don't mind it's all worth it=) I can't wait till I have our first scan done I'm so excited! And then soon we'll be able to see if it'll be a boy or a girl. I strongly feel it'll be a girl for some reason, but you never know. And I don't mind either way, he/she will still be perfect =)

Today I made a cake. It was quite an easy one so it didn't take long to mix and everything and it only took 70 mins to bake =) I used a cakemix that I got from one of the mills that my dad works on so it's not one you can buy in any shop. It's called a Boerencake which basically means a farmerscake =) All I had to add was 4 eggs and 270gr of butter/margarine =)
This is how it looked when I took it out of the oven:

And after it had cooled down we took it down to Dave's moms house and I put some squirty cream on the top for a little bit extra and this is how it looked =) (not the best picture):

And luckily it was yummy =D I love baking and cooking and I'm going to be doing alot more of it! I'm going to be one of those old grandmothers that are always baking lol =D

We've had some more problems with our downstairs neighbour btw. She likes to play really loud music in the middle of the night and have all her (drunk) friends over that like to shout instead of talk in a normal volume. So we complained to the council, cause I'm sorry but I'm not having this when I'm as tired as I am, I need all the sleep I can get I don't need some snotty nosed teenager to come in and think she can do whatever she wants just because she has a dad who beats people up when they are in their way =S Which doesn't give you a very safe feeling btw. I hope I don't sound like a whining old lady, but it's really not nice when you get woken up at 3/4 am every weekend and sometimes during the week =( I hope it'll get better after they give her another official warning (which means if she does it again she can get kicked out).


I found out yesterday that I'm..


It was a shock at first, but now I'm (we're) really excited!

It's late now so I'll write more tomorrow.. just thought I'd tell everybody!
omg!!! =D

Can't believe it's..

September already! It seems like yesterday that we went on holiday in July, although that's actually been nearly 2 months.
Having your own place, no internet there and Sims2 (and all expansion pacs) on the computer that HAS got internet is not good for blogging! I get distracted too easy, seriously I go on the computer everytime something worth sharing happens and then I look online and get distracted and then by the time I realise I still haven't done my blog it's time to go home to make tea (dinner)!lol ahwell I'll get there one day.. hopefully soon. Meanwhile I think I've lost all my readers =(
We've been busy in the flat as usual. We've got our laminate flooring down in the bedroom now and we have baught the laminate for in the hallway, all we need now is the underlay (we have lots leftover from the bedroom, but need one or two more squares so that means we have to buy a whole new pack..that's another 12,95 gone from our tight budget lol) and then the roomdeviders (I think that's what you call them) that go in the doorways to connect the floor there going from room to room, which cost about £9 each (!).. *sighs*. There is good news too though.. we've got a cooker (gas range) with oven and grill! =D So we can finally cook our own food.. may not sound like such a big deal to most people, but I'm really excited and I'm going to be making LOTSSSSS of cakes and breads and pies!! Especially my special Dutch apple pie (with my moms recipe =P) =D Can't wait and ofcourse I'll be posting pictures of them! Wish I could add the smell of them too as that's one of the best things about baking =)
Soon it'll be my birthday again in October.. 23 already, feels like it was only yesterday when I was 13 lol! I already know what I'm getting for my birthday.. well mostly anyway.. season 2&3 of Gilmore Girls on dvd from David's sister and David's getting me an mp4 player =D My parents gave me and David the gas range/cooker for our birthdays btw which was really awesome of them =D

I haven't been doing much knitting. I'm still working on an pm4 cover for David's sis, it just needs a cord and then it should be done. I'm going to crochet her a better one though from the Happy Hooker book (ipod covers)=)
