Hope EF's presentation went well in London and not too many nightmares were caused by that freaky painting on FB!!
How long is your sister still with you Caro? STink that you have the bonus of someone doing the cooking and you can't even enjoy it though!
I am feeling a bit broken today from overdoing things yesterday. Flat out with work etc then took M for a bike ride along the coastal path in between daycare and birthday party yesterday but didn't agree on how far she could go before stopping and waiting - nearly had to flag down a passing cyclist to go after her!! SO ended up walking much further/faster than I prob should! Birthday party was fun and M so knackered that when we got home at 6 she had a bath and bed with no dinner and no fuss!! Cold still sticking around - coughing constantly is not compatible with being 37 weeks pregnant my poor pelvic floor is clearly useless!! ALright after that TMI I best go and get some work done!!
Snip is reversible - I had a colleague who had exactly same scenario and went on 2 have 2 girls with his second wife. Not cheap though! Hubby can get the snip after this one - we are done I think.
WOnderful for your colleague EF. I was just wrapping a very belated present from my friends new baby (the one who lost her son at 5 months after a liver transplant). Its been a very emotional time for them but they are very happy.
Am feeling pointlessly stressed about something ridiculous!! We have got M a trampoline for christmas (birthday ad christmas combined from several relatives). Hubby was adament we needed a 14 ft one - I am worried we are not going to have any garden left!! Pointless worrying because can't change it now and we won't live here for ever but I just don't think he realises how big its going to be - I keep looking at the space and picturing it in my head!! First world problem right?!!
PG M is 3 and 5 months. I think she'll be fine but suspect we'll have some interesting behaviour to contend with at the same time. Luckily we have Christmas not long after so she has something exciting to look forward to and something we can focus on together thats not all about the baby.
Looks like you managed to get your chemo Caro - love the photo story on FB! I hope you can hunker down and get through this next week as quickly as possible and then enjoy the lead up to Christmas without any more chemo looming!
Feeling coldy and snowed under with work at the moment. Hubby keeps saying just go back to bed, they'll understand and of course they would but I am so conscious that with only 2.5 weeks left at work I have so much to do in order to not leave things in a state and as I have noone to handover to yet I need it all written down! Also aware that as I am working up to just before my due date, I could in theory go earlier so trying to at least get handover notes written in case something happens (of course I will go really overdue but to be honest that looks a bit appealing as I would get some days off while M is at daycare to relax!). I know they'd all survive if I just went but I really like my job and don't want to leave things behind that make me look sloppy!
M is obviously really conscious that everything is about to change. She swings between being excited and saying things like 'I don't want the baby to push me' etc. She is also super clingy with me at the moment - doesn't want to do anything on her own with Daddy. He's planning on taking her out on Saturday to give me a break - I can't wait!!
Hope everyone else ok? Saw a fab race report on FB from MM!! Right, must knuckle down and get some work done!!
Interesting to hear about the second language for Scottish kids - would be interesting to know the reasoning behind it!
Hugs to all who need them esp Camlo - that sounds like an exceptionally bad day by all accounts!!
I have spent 4 hours on the phone for various work calls this morning which means I pick Matilda up shortly having done basically no work SIGH! Really starting to feel the pressure of getting everything wrapped up before I leave! Also the weather is like the middle of winter so am freezing and have a cold - yuck!!
Sorry, will come back later when I can be less complainy!
