Well no real signs that our wee man wants to come into the world yet, he's happy and so I am too. Perhaps the end part of pregnancy is actually designed to increase your patience in preparation for parenthood? I'm normally quite an impatient person but I think I'm just so happy these days it's easy to be content and knowing that he knows best when the right time is takes it out of my hands.
I've really enjoyed being at home, nesting :) Baking (see below mmmm), pottering around organising little areas of the house and reading. Although the most luxurious treat has to be my (nearly daily!) long candlelit baths with essential oils and soft music - during the day! It's just pure bliss, when will I have time for that kind of pampering again? Who knows so I'm enjoying every minute :)

For those of you who know me quite well by now, you might be thinking 'that all sounds good but a little too relaxed for Astra...' and your right! But don't get mad I promise I am resting enough! I've also been working loads on my new Itty Bitty Book Company :) It's going really well and I'm so excited as to where it could lead this year. I've sent books to New Zealand, UK and America so far! It feels so good to be spreading positivity around the world and setting up something for my future too, I just love it :)

I'm sure you all know Bee Girl from Sky Minded and Ever Growing? Well she started a brilliant series a while back on her blog where she highlights and shares the love for small businesses who are making a positive change in the world. Its called 'Expanding Ripples'. She does an in-depth interview and really shares the essence of the company, very inspiring I urge you to have a read of all the posts.
I was over the moon when she asked to feature me and my new business, I hope you'll read and enjoy the post. I talk about what inspired me to start The Itty Bitty Book Company, how I think positivity can change the world and a bit of my personal background and views too.
There is also a positivity book giveaway and you don't want to miss that!
