#week36: Angry Old Man
Geschreven door Tiany Kiriloff
I’ve been pursuing the perfect baby in the womb picture, but it turns out that baby dear is kind of shy and unwilling to show its cute little face
So after a few attempts to capture the belly inhabitant, I managed to obtain this rather grumpy old man pic of the creature inside me. There goes my good intention of creating the perfect baby photo album. And I hereby would like to thank friend Elke, who tried to help me out with this apparently very difficult task.
Elke manages to capture the tummy magic and generates some real awesome pics, unless off course you are dealing with a shyer than shy offspring, that refuses to show it’s cute little face decently. If you’re expecting than go ahead and pay Elke a visit, she’s based in Ghent and you can find her via www.cfor9.be.
No major aches I haven’t talked to you about in the past few weeks nor have I experienced any other new symptoms, apart from the persisting pressure to my pelvic area & bladder and the further incapability of just moving around. Oh perhaps I must add the delightful feature of swelling up as this facet of pregnancy is currently also manifesting itself, probably due to the heat and oh did I mention that sleeping has become “un problemita”? Yes indeed, there is no position that longer comforts me. I twist and turn and still look like a tortoise on its back while at it.
Lately my belly tends to turn into some kind of lunar landscape that even has my husband wondering what type of creature has gotten inside of it. It kind of reminds me of Sigourney Weaver in Aliens, a bit freaky. I must however admit that I adore the movement and that little kicks that have become subtler and less painful, it’s pretty much the only aspect of being pregnant that I actually find adorable & intersting and that I’m sure I will soon miss.
I just returned from Hossegor were I spent my holidays in the good company of my beloved family and friends… enjoying some time in the sun with good food, good vibes, surf (well for the others that is), sea and the essential stuff in life. There are truckloads of hugs and kisses and we compliment each other on a daily base as each family has their day of cooking meals and taking care of each other.
There’s absolutely no designer stuff in the nearest surrounding, nor the lobby of some chic fancy hotel and it doesn’t seem to be making me sad at all. I’ve been doing these type of holidays for a while now; exploring surf spots around the world, wearing the same bikini and dress for days in a row, having salty hair and no make up and living on the comfiest of slippers… It all turns me into an intense happy person and reminds me of the fact that there is so much more to life than being picture perfect in a head to toe designer outfit.
Don’t get me wrong, I will always be a fashion loving girl and adore my job and deeply respect the fashion bizz, but my kids, hubby, friends and the type of holidays I constantly chose for help me relativize this life in fashion and therefor I’m thankful and yes I feel blessed because of it.
This week has got me wearing shorts, the highest of heels – to camouflage my swollen legs - and monochromatic blouses with clocking sleeves. I can’t wait to wear some off-the-shoulder tops, but somehow feel they don’t match my current belly, so this Dorothee Schumacher exemplar is the perfect solution to my little fashion cravings.
