How do you get going again after pregnancy?
See you mentioned running too - bad, bad Brookie.... Glad you managed to get out though and with regards to bf'ing I doubt 2 feeds a day would stop you conceiving but may be tiring to continue if you did catch again. Good for you doing it so long!
Archie's party was usual chaos. Grandma and aunty set up while I took kids to sis and legged it around the block and we got home to find the table covered with an edible farm. Choc cake train running the length of the table, brandy snap tunnel, cow sarnies, gingerbread pig pen, jelly pond complete with icing ducks and slices of mango for fish, field of sheep. Absulutely amazing effort.
Havent changed clocks yet - so thinking I may get the extra hour tonight??
I am def not tiger mom material but I did get a bit of nerves before Martha's parents evening too, I guess I just want her to be doing okay and it was so great to hear that she's doing everything she should be!
CC - well done on getting your work done despite hubby, I too am not keen on those bib cycling things, very odd look!
Caro - hope you are having a bit less pain, do you have to pick up E much and carry him? My back is niggling a lot more but B is 20lbs so its taking its toll already!
JT - urgh, poor you, especially not being able to do much. Suppose you can do all your Christmas shopping online! I would try to see someone else too I suppose, tricky to know what to do at this point, chest clinic sounds like a good idea though.
We had B's christening today, he was fab, didn't make a fuss at all. Had a very rocky night as Aidan had a vom bug so he was wiped out today but was very well behaved bless him, luckily he seems fine now. Just hoping the rest of us don't get it.
Camlo - like the edible farm idea!
The edible farm looked incredible Camlo!!! EF I was a total anti-kindle then was given one as a leaving present from my work when I went on maternity leave and am hooked!!! I love it!
We had a good weekend - hubby came back around lunchtime so not too annoying. In the morning Matilda and I went and joined the toy library which is awesome!! Heaps more independent play with a whole box of plastic animal figurines. Hubby and I went out for a meal on Sat night while SIL babysay. Was lovely and the first time in a LONG time! Yesterday we had 2 couple plus their toddlers over for lunch - byo highchair!! We used to entertain loads in London so it was nice to do it again. Yummy lunch and a really good laugh! All the kids were great too. SIL flies home today - hubby will be sad but I think he is pretty knackered with entertaining as well. They managed a whole week together with some really long drives without mentioning his mother or anything else of importance. Sigh!! We talked about it and have decided that they were brought up as non-communicators and he has learnt to talk through stuff (I am the complete opposite!) but SIL just wont talk about anything that might be uncomfortable. I worry about her (smart, pretty, very ambitious) as she is still single at 37 with an on again off again boyfriend lurking who is obsessed with image, money etc.
I have sent them all off for the day as I am working - whoops and here I am not working - best get on with it!!!
PS JT you must be going crazy - vent on here as much as you like you must need it!!!! Hope you start to see some improvement soon ((())))
oh yes that farm was AWESOME camlo!
