Forgot to say, lotte, royal parks ultra looks flat as a pancake! You basically nip around Westminster then follow the Thames path most of the way to bushy park. A slight hill on the edge of richmond park but that's it. We're about 15min drive from bushy So hopefully can come down and cheer you over the finish line. Although it seems likely we'll be moving that weekend so have to see if I can escape
No news here I'm afraid not officially due til this weekend but I am enormous and knackered from having the kids all day every day. Wish I'd stayed working for longer
CM- wow they sound a bit nuts at your place! You sound like yo. Are doing an awesome job though and I suspect you are already completely indispensible. Great to buy them sugar treats too! My hubby frequently does that for his team when they work long hours, it does help that he has a horribly sweet tooth too!
lotte- well done on your win! And then a 10 miler?! You are astounding woman! I was just thinking today when waddling after my two girls at gymnastics club how i shouldn't complain as you waddled around after 4 kids when pregnant with twins!!!
Great to hear from you JT. Glad you had a great holiday.
Funny all these grumpy hubbies when they don't get enough, how to put your loving wife in the mood eh. My hubby is obviously a saint, don't think he's had any action since May! Obviously I am now too huge to be bothered except as a possible method of going into labour. Also he waited over 6months post each baby for any action, due partly to scar issues and partly tiredness!
caro - hope things are still going ok-ish post chemo session. is being bunged up incredibly common? And is it due to the painkillers or chemo? I did learn about chemo during my degree but brain can't remember that far back.
tt- ouch to the itb! But great that it's being pummelled before injury though. I was out for a good 6months because of my itb so have great respect for it now (and my weak glutes of course).
Turbo- glad things going ok and enjoying newborn snuggles with Fay. Can we have another piccie through fb please?! Need to see more cuteness! Another friend of mine had her baby last week, 2 girls already and now a boy! Maybe I have a boy in here which is why he hasn't come out early like his sisters
Still here, thanks for asking! totally fed up though, due date is officially 31st but I've never gone this far before (Mages was 38 and Rose 39wks) and I feel so uncomfortable and tired, terrible waves of back pain which has been happening for days (keep getting my hopes up that it'll be labour!). I did want an august baby, purely for selfish reasons but everyone keeps telling me it's better for kids to be September so maybe I should be wanting to go overdue
Anyway, no more moaning, enjoying relaxing and having afternoon naps while my wonderful hubby is doing lots of child entertainment and housework/cooking. Pouring down here so he is setting up the wii for the girls, not sure they're old enough for it but we'll see!
Sorry to hear more hubby troubles about, pip - glad you're at least both being nice(!) and hopefully that'll continue for your holiday this week (where are you off to?). Good tri times too, especially the run.
Shame about house too, but don't assume that anyone else will beat your offer yet. We've had no viewings on our flat for over a week so going to change estate agents. Also the house we are in has gone up for sale, as I suspected would happen if we couldn't buy it, so already had viewings. Hubby told me not to tidy/clean up as it's not our problem but I don't want it a complete tip and surely he should at least not want his pants on the floor in front of strangers...
bad news about your place too CC. That's what scares me the most with renting, especially once on rolling contract, that they only need to give a month. the tenants in our flat are looking elsewhere and as much as it means no income for us until we sell I can completely understand they don't want to be stuck looking on short notice. Is there quite a bit to rent in your area though?
caro - lovely news about your sister coming over for your treatments. She sounds great. Always good to have at least one great relative! (My sis is also awesome ). Sad about your hair even if was expected.
for royal parks ultra, pretty sure im very near to the finish (hampton court is it?) so can come cheer on lotte if she comes! I'm tempted to do it in a couple of years as nice easy route and so near home of course.
Hoggle - yuck to still feeling sick even if only in car. How many weeks are you now? I've been doing some swimming to keep ticking over as I really am just waddling now, such a shock after last two active pregnancies right til the end.
turbo - how's gorgeous Fay? Your house looks amazing too, itll all be worth it in the end!
great running/cross training from tt, rf, lotte. Camlo - yes do hope hubby ok!
kinsey- great you had fun on soon to be sils hen do. Bodes well for future
right best go as said I was going to shower and now slobbing on here. Can hear some wii playing going on....
No shark teeth here yet! Sounds great in the cycle ride Caro, no idea whether that's a good time or not but surely just getting out there and feeling fit is most important for you right now (would never tell you to rest).
was also going to ask where's hubby Ttid?! when did you get let home? Glad all is ok despite rough sounding c-section. Fay is gorgeous and I am incredibly jealous you're already cuddling your new baby!
always amazed by people meeting online and it actually working out! But I guess that is very common now and probably a lot better than adverts in newspapers like in the olden days! tt- I would be nervous too but she sounds pretty sensible so fingers crossed all will be fine.
hiding in the living room while hubby makes pizzas with the girls. I am 38 weeks now and so ready for this baby! Was no way this uncomfortable or big either time before. Have eaten ridiculous amounts of chilli and ate an entire pack of dates yesterday (need to stop doing that when realised its about a 1000 calories per bag plus makes my digestive tract very active!).
my mum is staying but is at the cricket today so got some peace. She is really winding me up this visit and dreading how much more she'll get to me once I have three kids stressing me out! Was told I couldn't go into labour today because of cricket, she also brought her dog when I asked her not to and has said some things to Maggie (and Rosie) which really upset me. Does make me more conscious of what I say in anger at the girls and not to turn into her so some good comes out of it! I know I should be grateful to have family members close to me and who care about the grand kids but things are so much more tense when she's here. Anyway, enough moaning! Must go hang out with my lovely family in the kitchen
