Secrets and Surprises

I've seen out the old year and welcomed in the new. 
Every year is a new adventure, a new chapter to fill, a journey to continue with destination unknown and this coming year should certainly be one filled to the brim. 

We've been keeping a little something pretty quiet, our own little secret surprise.
This is one of those secrets that has been fairly well kept. Well to a certain degree. 
I've told family and friends but now it is certainly out in the open, being official in the the social media world as of the new year.

Do you want to know what it is?
Maybe you've guessed already (or maybe you've been hanging out on instagram).

Mr Sparky and I have a little Possum joining the family!

Due on the 1st of April (a little fool like its daddy), there are somewhere around 13weeks until we meet this little one. While I am happy to have it baking away for now, I can't wait ... we can't wait!

We are keeping everyone in suspense, and frustrating a few, by not finding out whether Possum is a girl or boy. 
By the way did you know how hard it is to find neutral clothes at the moment? 
To start off with I thought I would really want to know but know I like the fact that I don't.
Mr Sparky is voting boy (of cause) and I really don't have a clue.

We haven't done much in the way of finding baby stuff. I've found a couple of suits and singlets and been gifted a few more. We also came home from Christmas loaded with some handmade goodies to keep our tropical bub, snug. I love having such creative and talented family members!

 So now I've let you in on our little secret, that is definitely not a secret any more, I'm off to do some bump growing.

Have you had any good secrets brewing lately?


  1. My jaw just dropped! In a good way of course! This is awesome news, and you have kept this a huge secret. Congratulations to the both of you. You are looking really well x
    I found out I was pregnant with my first ON April Fools day ha ha!

    1. Thank you! I feel mostly well too, other than tired but I always am and have been for years. Getting into practice ;) .
      It hasn't been that hard a secret to keep, even face to face. Mostly I just look like I've eaten too many donuts or something like that.
      That would have been a fun day to find out ... April Fools!!
      I think having it as the approx birth date could create a bit of fun too.

  2. Well good luck with that growing bump! April first? we had one that had a due date then - but she was a few days late!

    Cheers and (a slightly belated) Happy New Year - Stewart M - Melbourne

    1. Thank you! I kind of hope this one is late or early (probably early when it gets closer) but then April 1st could be a fun birthday to have.
      Happy New Year to you as well.

  3. Congratulations!!! There is nothing quite like being a mum! Surely the best thing I've ever done!! All the best wishes with it!

    1. Thank you! Being a Mum is something I've always wanted. I am sure it will challenge me but that I will love it all the same.

  4. Congrats on the Possum-to-be! I think you're brave not knowing the sex--I'm not sure I could be that patient!

    1. Thank you! I thought it would be harder than it is not to find out but actually it is quite fun.
