Oh Caro ((((())))) that sounds horribly awfully stressful for you, I can only imagine.

No useful or wise words just sending a whole lot of love your way, hang in there and cry if and when you need to - no use bottling it all up. I have my fingers tightly crossed that you will get a better answer next week (and that the week goes quickly so you don't have to agonise for so long) xxxxx

I won't be applying either Ttid!

I was on an epic road trip for work last week, 9 meetings in 4 days sleeping in 3 different cities! Completely knackering so I'm grateful the sickness held off until after that!!

Hubby is working but not what he wants to be doing, still plugging away and will get there eventually. So definitely not his ideal circumstances of him having completed 3 months probation in a new job before trying to get pregnant but he pointed out that there would never have been a right time (for him anyway) so he's glad the decision kind of got made for us.

Anyone tried acupuncture for morning sickness? Am thinking of giving it a try as I feel horrified at the thought of feeling like this for another couple of months - its only been 2 days!!

You might have seen some wet photos of the Royals on their visit to NZ - the country seems to have gone Royal baby mad and now we are forced to watch horrible reporting where the media seem to be competing with Australian media on who is giving them the best time! There was also a big fuss because they had George forward facing at 9 months in the carseat they had sent over especially - can you imagine parenting with that level of scrutiny?!!

I hope you all had a happy easter! I survived my massive work trip last week and then had a relaxing long weekend down at the farm. M was well-behaved and my niece started to show some signs of 2 year old behaviour so it made a mice change to have the pleasant child rather than the brat!


Exciting news from here is that I am pregnant - whoops!! Not sure how that happened (well obviously I do but you know...)

Not sure how many weeks but I'm guessing 6 or 7 so very early days. Hit with morning sickness like a brick wall yesterday though so am feeling very rough - not fun at all!! Seems worse than last time so am not feeling that excited about the next few weeks! I was a bit nervous about how hubby would react but he is thrilled! So looks like all being well there will be a Christmas baby - fingers crossed!

Haven't had time to read back but hope all is well with everyone and Ttid I am v impressed at the speed with which your house is going up!! Must be v exciting!

I'm terrible about taking M swimming - need to go more regularly. She is very confident and really enjoys it but because we don't do lessons at the moment we never get into the habit of going weekly. Well done Sophie!!!

23 degrees today - its April - this is crazy!!! Taking full advantage but it does feel very weird and I really feel for my parents as the farm is in major drought now!


Exciting re. your trip Ttid!! Who was it who said they might move to the States? TB? I lived away from my family for 8 years but at least one of my siblings lived in London for much of that time. I missed them a lot but was made easier by knowing we'd always move home at some point. Hubby told me yesterday he feels more like a NZ'er than a Brit now which was nice to hear! Means that he feels settled here despite the on-going job stuff!

Arrrggghhh after 2 weeks of hubby not working, he went back to work yesterday (agency work) and he's hurt his back properly this time. I am really at a loss to know how to handle another setback. He is really low and its just blimmin awful. He now won't be able to do his day at his old job which he usually does on a Friday and we need the money - can't stress to him as there's noting he can do.

On the positive side (I need all the postives I can get) my jog to daycare and back with the buggy was good. Definitely feeling fitness returning.

Glad you have an appointment sorted Brookie, sounds like its been a tough time ((())). I'm the last person who should give running advice but if you don't get injured currently I'd stick with the ain't broke idea. Esp as it sounds like running will help your frame of mind at the moment and embarking on something that could lead to short term injuries could be counter-productive to your overall well-being. WIll be interested to know some of the more knowledgeable ladies feedback though as I run like you do but get plenty of injuries! 

Caro I love your run pictures and descriptions - made me laugh! Also reminded me how much I miss Ikea!! Nothing like that here.

Lovely weekend at the farm and lots of wonderful time with my family as sis and her kids were staying as well. Back at easter so not too long.

It's Friday here!!!!

Oh MM that is very very tough re the running and a double whammy with the work review. Does your boss socialise with CM's boss?! New job sounds like a great plan and as someone said it will be easier with recent experience under your belt! Take care of yourself xxxx
CM - look how many people it's taking to replace you!! If they're going to make you work til the end then treat it as a relax/destress time - do absolute minimum and be at home doing things for yourself as much as possible - you owe them nothing!!
Loving all the running view pics. I'm still not doing much but will try and take one on my daycare run route this morning to share.
Looked at a house yesterday and loved it - bank today to see what mortgage we'll get on my salary - not holding breath but if it's meant to be it will be!
Then it's off to the farm - yay!!!
