You will be fine EF! Deep breaths and remember all your positives . Good luck!
Caro - your holiday sounds very similar to ours in Norfolk last Easter, wonderful cottage, I could have easily stayed another week. So peaceful! Glad you're enjoying it.
CC boo to forgetting to confirm, I am doing things like that all the time at the moment, I don't know what's wrong with me! just booked Sophie a riding lesson next Tues then realised my mum will be here and probably catching her train home around then!
The cats are looning around the house - good to hear them playing and not having little waving paw fights .
Sophie entered a competition on Kidstart to win 2 Hotel Chocolat eggs - she designed her dream egg along with around...3 other entrants...and 4 won...hmm! She's delighted, we're just negotiating rewarding her with something else so we can keep the posh choc eggs! Oh and Nicky got his place at the same school Sophie's at, and he's at nursery at, so that's all good .
Got a grotty cold from somewhere, it's most annoying and I think Nicky has got it and now Sophie. I just hope it's gone by the time my mum arrives on Friday or we'll never hear the end of it if she gets it! Still no pox...2 weeks on Friday since Sophie started with it...
Welcome soswalker! Sound advice from TT, definitely core and pelvic floor muscles. I was given a leaflet by the hospital which was basically what TT describes, though I used to do them in bed at night and often nodded off halfway through . I bet if you search on YouTube there'll be a postnatal workout of some sort?
Hope the marathon runners have had a good run! Probably a bit warm in this sunshine, but there's a strong breeze up North, not sure if it is in London.
I did my first speed workout today, prescribed by the physio on Friday. 5ish mins jog then 5 mins fast, 1 min rest then another 5 mins fast, then 10 min jog. Hip ached by the end but doesn't seem too bad since I got back. Getting a bit annoyed/frustrated by my running buddies making constant requests for me to do races when I clearly can't ! I know they mean well but I just sound as though I'm making excuses all the time.
Anyway, banana bread smells as though it's done Enjoy the sunshine!
I've finished for the holidays at work, yeay ! Feel shocking though, thirsty, headache, slight sore throat...boo! It's my first free Wed night in 11 weeks tonight though so I AM going to circuits, though I may not enjoy it!
Just planning Sophie's party - first playcentre one, I want to cry at the cost! Oh well, no stress for me I suppose nor any food costs other than a cake. £120 for her and 7 friends to do a Bear World party (design bear's t-shirt, choose a bear and they stuff it for you to take home, plus play in the playcentre and food and party bags). Or more if she wants more friends but the minimum is 8..!
Been utterly useless this afternoon! Oh well, hopefully an earlier night than usual will help. I went to see Matt Cardle last night (X Factor winner a while back) and he was fab, love seeing singers who can actually sing live and acoustic .
Physio on Friday if Sophie's better, otherwise will have to put it off a week. Not had a chance to do much recently though, too tired to stretch or roller most of the time.
Sophie's doing better thanks TB, still covered head to toe (literally) in spots, and new ones on her face and in mouth today but she slept in till 7.45am (normally up by 6.30) and spent the day at grandparents' and seems ok. Still blisters so no school tomorrow as well...probably get her back in on Friday if we're lucky . I'm checking Nicky too...!
