Probably a quick post from me - hubby has all the kids in our bed watching telly but doubt they will last much longer without coming downstairs and bugging me
pip- I might have said but we were renting our flat (first floor maisonette with garden etc) in Earlsfield to just two months ago as now selling (or trying to!). And had moved out to surrey- only renting but similar to you. If you want to email me I can tell you any renting tips etc rather than bore everyone on here (and get interrupted by small people). But basically worked well for us for a time, but def use an agent to keep riffraff out, only have one contract even if individual tenants in each room and watch out for capital gains if renting it for over 18months, also we had a huge tax bill last year on "earnings" which we could have reduced if property hadn't been half in my hubby's name.
Caro - you're doing so great as always and I'm so majorly impressed by your research. really hope you get the answers you need on Monday and are having a lovely weekend in brighton, involving lots of eating!!
ef- sounds like a great London weekend! I still only live 25mins from Central London but haven't done half what you did in a weekend! Missed the poppies too but couldn't bear the thought of taking all the children in. Sorry things are so stressed, my hubby is barely staying sane with work stress. I'm being as supportive as poss but obviously feeling the strain myself with my new life as a stay at home mummy of three, not sure I can do it for ever! Will need a job! hats off to you Kinsey especially with your hubby away a lot. Mine is off to Milan next week and I am already getting cold sweats at how I'll cope without him coming through the door every evening!
not to scare you though hoggle! I love my family really and going from one to two is not as hard as to three. And to give you more hope, even though we have suffered with whole family being ill and Luke and Rosie not sleeping well at all - when I asked hubby if we should get him booked in for the snip we decided maybe not quite yet just in case we want no. 4 Can't believe I might ever consider it as I am still broken!
right, talking of broken I have decided to ignore the gp and try a small run in a min! still waiting on physio for my split abs but other than that I feel fine and have been walking loads, so going to attempt a couch to 5k style run of one min run one min walk. Best to get changed now I've said I'm going. As Camlo says it is hard with black clouds, both in the mind and sky so I must get back out there. Will report back later
Hope you sleep well Caro. pleased to hear the neutrophils behaved. Bet matilda had a lovely day at longleat, weather has been glorious down south. Not looking forward to tomorrow when it's meant to p down all day, Maggie is poorly so even if we could go out in the rain she won't be up to it, and don't think I'll persuade any of my friends to risk our germ filled house.
hoggle- my boy was 9lb8oz but it was pretty obvious from my belly! im sure you'll have a normal sized baby but not a whopper
Anyway, only a quick post to stay I'm still here just busy. House move went well but don't know when I'm going to actually finish unpacking. CC- I had packers and cannot imagine having to pack As well as unpack! Brave lady hope hubby appreciates your efforts
just remembered main reason for posting! Lotte (and any others who've had this) - went to gp for my 6wk check and he confirmed I have bad ab separation. He has referred me for physio but said to do no exercise at all!!! Im sure you said you still have separation and are obviously running?! Did you have to wait a while post birth though? Strengthen core etc? I am impatiently waiting til I can see physio and getting fed up of googling and getting conflicting info!
off to bed in mo. My hungry boy is still waking me many times a night and my coughing, sick girls are getting us up for various reasons, including nose blowing, sigh!
