Hugs to everyone with black clouds at the moment - what ever your reasons (or if you don't even know the reasons) it is never easy. Take care of yourselves xx

Pretty good weekend here, managed to afternoons to myself so lots of sleeping so am feeling pretty good now. Midwife this morning and am measuring small so am having a growth scan at some point. Midwife wasn't concerned though so should be fine. Was gutted as it appeared that I had lost my expensive rain jacket while away with work but it has turned up at head office so am very pleased - was not excited about replacing that!!

On tenterhooks at the moment as hubbies 90 day trial period ends in just over a week. His boss is a nightmare and he has been really worried that he won't get kept on. He's really moody and a terrible communicator (boss not hubby) so has been pretty rough but they had a good conversation last week so am hoping that has cleared things up. Hubby says he's still not certain he'll be kept on so am keeping fingers tightly crossed!! If he does he will start looking for another job soon anyway as the boss is such hard work but far easier to do that from an existing job rather than no job! I would just like him to have a consistent job that brings in enough money so we are ok while I'm on maternity leave!!

Getting absolutely no work done today - totally lacking motivation - oh well tomorrow is another day!

I can defnitely see how that wasn't how you saw your hospital free day panning out Caro! Is your sister around to go with you?

Camlo I wouldn't describe me as tiny at all - people have weird perceptions of bump size I reckon!

Christmas bonus - TMI!!!!

Sounds like its been a tough week all round with so many appointments and that feeling of having come so far but still having a way to go. In a few years time this will no longer bone of the most defining things about you as you will have moved on to much bigger and better things, it will have become something that has made you who you are. I can see how it would be hard to see anything other than the grimmness of it all at the moment though - take care xx

Ttid you made me snort with laughter at your sleeping with the boss comment!!

Matilda went to bed like a lamb last night - yay! Helped that it was Daddies turn to do bedtime so I could just lie on the couch! I'm 32 weeks now and generally feeling very well, apparently Im 'tiny' haha I'm def bigger than last time so doesn't feel tiny but also don't feel too encumbered by my bump yet, I just get more tired and more impatient!

We have such a busy time between now and when the baby comes too - birthday parties most weekends, a couple of trips to the farm and a load of other fun stuff. Will be knackering but I don't want to miss out on any of it either! I love November!!

WHose running this weekend - is it Brookie and Lotte running Abingdon? Good luck if it is!!

CM - your boss sounds like a prize to**er! If it helps it sounds like you are doing a great job of standing up to him and you are right - why should you waste your valuable time on things if he's going to undermine you at every turn. ((()))

Good luck with the dry nights Caro and I love the 17 mile analogy!! Sounds like you had some milestones yesterday. Hang in there you are doing amazingly!!

Tired mummy here - mainly just pregnancy tiredness I think but not helped by an extra demanding and whiny Matilda at the moment - huge bedtime battles and taking her an hour of stuffing around to get to sleep despite being tired when she goes to bed so is waking up tired and grouchy in the morning and being extra contrary! I was v happy when she decided she wanted Daddy to take her to daycare this morning!!

Wow Sophie must be such a heavy sleeper JG!! SHame about the job. It is always really disappointing when it doesn't happen how you want it but there will be something else out there and you'll look back and think I'm glad I didn't get that job! I had interviews for 5 jobs before I got this one and was gutted each time and feeling more and more despondent - now I am so glad as most of them I would in hindsight not enjoyed (one I would have down right HATED) and I love my job now.

Birthday season has started for us. All M's friends from my coffee group are born from now through to early Dec so there are a lot of parties. 2 this saturday but have decided that hubby can take her to one as its his friends child!

Sounds like one of those precious moments that makes work stress, house stress etc seem irrelevant.
And does Pips sister live near you now?!

Hope hubby ok Pip and also that you avoid anything nasty!
Good luck with move Sonya.
CC your trip looked amazing!!!

Back from Nationals - actually really enjoyed it although beyond knackered. Finished at 11pm last night. Team managed a cake and a wee party on my birthday too and a massage at the onsite physio. All went well and it's was a really great event. Huge improvement on last year which was stress and drama filled! Few drama queens resigned this year and you could see what a strong team we are now.
Best welcome ever at the airport - M was over the moon to see me and it's been a love fest all day - lots of cuddles and telling me how much she loves me. M and hubby had a really good week without me so that was god and then had a nice quiet birthday - fab cake and BBQ dinner.
Early to bed for me thought.
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend xx

Gosh it has been quiet!
Well I had a funny old birthday - away from home, working from 7am! Colleagues remembered but day was so busy. However they had a cake and a wee party for me after we finished up at about 9.30pm last night which was fun. Nationals is going well, staff all happy etc and I'm remembering why I love working with volunteers. Ready to go home tomorrow though as am missing my family - weird to not see them on my birthday but will celebrate tomorrow when I get back.
How are you doing Caro? Usual awfulness or different this time?

Hope your levels come back up Caro and you're able to keep the germs at bay!

TTid - I hate paying $45 (20 pounds) to see my GP but at least its free for children until the age of 14 I think. $200 to find out that some spots are more than likely harmless would drive me mad! Could they be some kind of bug bite or reaction? Your new house location sounds idyllic!!

Heading off to Auckland at lunchtime for 4 nights away at our National Championships so I have 60 odd volunteers to sort out. Quite looking forward to it. Working remotely is the best way to appreciate your colleagues! I can't wait to see them as I only see them about 4-5 times a year! Gutted to be having my birthday while I'm away though, postponing until I get back on Saturday. M has all sorts of grand ideas for my birthday cake - hubby looks thrilled!

Oh naughty tooth fairy!

CM - although short term pain of strop from not being appointed, appointing the wrong person to the role would be so so much worse in the long run. Sounds like you are making all the right decisions. Interesting that he was only applicant - what is their recruitment process like?

Exciting about ironman entry Camlo!!

I'm so impressed, my neighbour who is in her 60's and while reasonably small on top and legs has always had a very disproportionately wide bottom took up walking and now has progressed to running - she looks amazing!! She's now running most days for first time in her life - shows anyone can do it (must remember this myself when I try and drag my post baby body round next year!

Hideous weather today - missing the sunshine of earlier in the week. After being really good al week with not buying sweets I have failed badly yesterday when hubby bought home sweets and biscuits and even more so this morning while waiting for bumper to be replaced on car when the only thing in the cafe that tempted me was a ridiculously huge choc caramel slice - bleurgghh! What was that someone said about sugar being addictive...........?!!
