I'm impressed too Sazzle! I'm 30 weeks and can't run to the car without getting SPD pain! To be fair I wasn't running when I got pregnant as was recovering from surgery on my back but was walking a lot until about 5 weeks ago. Am going to start aquanatal classes next week as need to do something to keep the pounds from piling on. I'm hoping they are reasonably strenuous - I hate 'exercise' classes where you don't actually end up tired as a result and thats often the case withe pregnancy ones I've found. Fingers crossed.
We are having some glorious weather this week so spent the afternoon at the beach with friends - we are so lucky to live so close to so many lovely beaches. The one we usually go to is in the port (5 min drive) and very tame/calm so perfect for littlies but some awesome rugged surf beaches as well.
Work really ramping up - next week is our National Championships so will be in Auckland for 4 nights and a ton of work to do before then as I am responsible for coordinating all volunteers for rhythmic, aerobics and trampolining - hours with rosters at the moment and trying to balance being greatful that people are volunteering with frustration at their annoying requests/demands! Counting down until next Saturday when I fly home, celebrate my birthday late (I'm in Auckland for that) and then start to wind down a bit for work!
Brookie - well done on your awesome marathon time! I saw the winner smashed out an amazing time too!!
Very jealous of you all planning a 10k get together! I say go ahead and book it, you're never going to get something to suit everyone but will be a great laugh!!! ANd I want to see all the pictures!!
I was a bit CC! I don't use it very much so I think if I do take it its generally because I really need something.
God work is knackering me so much at the moment - normally it works so well in my favour but there are times like now when I have too much to do and it becomes a massive juggle because I am trying to work in the afternoon with Matilda around.
Anyway must spend some quality time with M this weekend - been so rushed and impatient with her this week!
Caro - I am so glad that in this instance your mum is a long way away!!
CM - sounds like a crap day and v sorry to hear about your friend. Hope the weekend is an improvement on the week.
I have a cold and too much work to do so am feeling sorry for myself and then had a text from a friend this morning telling me new research has found a link between using paracetamol during pregnancy and child behavioural problems! I'm sure it would have to be fairly excessive useage but still - doesn't leave many options!!
I think it was me who did it same year as you Pip!
Exciting Brookie, hope its not too warm for you.
Phew Lotte - I was tired contemplating my day - yours is unfathomable!
Had a terrible night sleep last night - awake from 12.30 until about 4am then again at 5.30. WIde awake, baby squirming like mad, Matilda coughing etc etc. Hungry so had a bunch of crumpets at about 2am. Now I have a cold and get to drive to HAmilton for a meeting tonight - SIGH! Last driving trip though...
Sounds like an interesting lot of debates over the Scottish vote. We had our election over the weekend and very depressingly National (our Tory equivalent) got voted in with an overwhelming majority - SIGH!!! Another 3 years of this crap!
Had a lovely weekend down at the farm. Matilda and Rose (her cousin) played so well together and have just got to the stage where they will disappear off for ages and mostly sort out any squabbles - good times! M was so so sad about leaving yesterday.
AM knackered today and in a GRUMPY mood!! Had a deadline set for some things coming in for work last Friday in order to make sure some money went through the payment run today - strict deadline and someone thought 10pm was acceptable - then emailed and said oh I need to change something I'll have it for you Saturday - oh sorry didn't realise I work weekends as well?!! Sorry ranting unnecessarily now!
Off to Hamilton tomorrow- last overnight trip where I'm driving thankfully, then just Nationals and that should be me for overnight trips for almost a year I hope!
Caro, I hope you are feeling a lot better this week
Ttid that is super exciting about moving soon!!!
Camlo - I would have been pleased about that drinks decision as well!! We went out for a meal last night and let Matilda have a blackcurrent drink - until I looked at the sugar content - 22g it wasn't even a big bottle of drink! Was appalled so hid it! Only ever water and milk at home and usually same when out - juice is a big treat which will be becoming more scarce I feel!
