Our internet has been down for over a week so I am behind with my postings. There hasn't been a lot happening; we had a gorgeous, romantic Valentine's Day dinner at home cooked by me. 4 courses of all Tanc's favourites. And there were roses and divine pink champagne galore. I think Tiger is definitely going to be born with a penchant for pink champagne! She is really active now. Tanc has felt many a good kick. She responds to light and sound (as well as adrenalin, caffeine and alcohol funnily enough).

On Saturday we went to look at a villa in Casares. I fell head over in love with it. Unfortunately it's not looking good as anything in the campo (country area) doesn't value well with the banks so we won't be able to offer them anything like what they want for it. Tanc is going to put a deal to them, as he is Mr Dealmaker and if anyone can, he can, however I'm not hopeful. I am trying to forget about it.

I've had drawing class, Spanish classes (lots of homework) and I'm trying to master my camera still so my brain is really being pushed at the moment. We are off to Meribel to ski (not me I can assure you) on Saturday so in 2 weeks I will have some interesting photos to post!

I would like to raise a toast to my latest nephew, entering the world at 4.03am on 12th February. He is a very bonny baby boy called James Timothy. Congratulations Lindy and Andrew! And great job Lindy!!!

So now I have 3 nephews and a niece! Fantastic!

Here is Baxter, Richard and Claerwen's adorable baby, born on December 19th:

And here is his handsome brother Winter:

Here is their bright little bubble cousin Madeleine, Lindy and Andrew's firstborn. Grandma Ros is giving her some coaching:

Week 20 Body:

I was sick of just wearing leggings but couldn't find any jeans to fit. Finally I found some that are 3 sizes bigger than my normal size and lowrise to fit under the belly!

Looking down to the bottom of our street. We are the last 2 garages on the right, closest to the bottom:

The top of our street. Quite a contrast!

Our neighbours. Apparently this villa used to be owned by Sting and Trudy:

Monday was supposed to be our 20 wk scan, to measure all Tiger's organs and check for anomalies. Well Tiger was not being co-operative at all so the doctor could only check the spine and the brain. Thankfully these were normal. He suggested coming back the following day after having drunk some juice or something to wake Tiger up. We went back Tuesday after I had half a cup of coffee and a dark chocolate Lindt ball. This did the trick! We went from the sublime to the ridiculous and Tiger wouldn't stop dancing around. We were able to get a good look at all the organs though and all is normal. Yay! And Tiger is actually Princess Tiger!!! We're having a girl!!! We are both very excited and Tanc is secretly delighted. Now I can get on with the nursery and start to purchase a few little girly items, definitely the fun bit of pregnancy.

Here is an eery picture of Tiger's face...

On the weekend we went to dinner at Roberto's new flat in Estepona. I don't think the oven had been used before...
