Today in pictures….

Splodge evacuation procedures in the form of a nice walk (aka waddle) down to our local railway station to watch a theatre quarter event about the great war and the railway followed by a lovely homemade curry (even if I do say so myself) along with a weak wine and lemonade to relax after a mad day!!

All this was after a lovely morning which consisted of most of the family!! Feeling loved…..

DING!! Timers gone and we’re ready to meet you…. C’mon splodge! #duedate #pregnancy #pregnant #40weeks #splodge

Today consisted of a long walk around the zoo in the hope of starting something and now an evening of raspberry leaf tea, evening primose oil and bouncing on a birthing ball ….

C’mon splodge, we’re ready to meet you!!

My poor little man….between splodge and Bo it’s going to be an uncomfortable day!! 

I was woken today to Bo coming upstairs covered in blood, cue my jumping out of bed and throwing on some clothes for an emergency visit to the vet. The verdict is that he’s been in a fight so needed a ruptured abscess cleaned and some antibiotics. 

He’s really not happy now though as he needs to stay in for a few days and he’s not impressed by being kept in the house!! Poor little guy.

Serious husband brownie points tonight.

At 39+3 weeks I finally had to conceed and ask for help to shave my legs. And he did. With no issues.

That’s REAL love that is!!!

Confessions of a workaholic

It’s Saturday and I’ve now finished my first 4 working days of maternity leave and I have serious mixed feelings about this.

On the one hand I’m tired. If I do too much, I’m tired. If I try and pick up too much from the floor, I get tired. If I walk too much, I get tired. If I sit around doing nothing, yep you guessed it….I get tired. It’s the joy of being heavily pregnant and having only 8 days to go until my due date (Eek!!) so I know it was the right time to finish, especially as I finished on a high with the project going live.

But (and it’s a big but) I miss work. Its what I do and I’m one of those lucky (and perhaps strange) people that loves their job - the challenges I have to overcome and the awesome people I get to work with. I have never just had time off at home on my own with nothing I have to do…..and so far I have crammed it full in 4 days. Company every day, lunches, coffee catch ups, dinner with friends (all not helping said tiredness) but it is keeping me away from my emails as my brain keeps telling me that “one little peek won’t hurt……!! “

Back away from the work email!! Who knew it’d be this tempting!! Let’s hope splodge doesn’t go too far over :-)

Mmm…..maybe it’s time to conceed something #ranoutofroom #steeringwheel #driving #pregnant #amostthere
