PG - that is such a  rude comment esp coming from someone with absolutely zero self-awareness!! I used to hate some of the comments I'd get from people when running in London esp when you ran past pubs!!

I have a sick girl at home today which is NOT ideal!! She had quite a high temp this morning and was so lethargic! Of course she is fine now and wants to go to daycare but I'm guessing thats because she's had paracetamol. Daycare were laughing because when I rag she was in the background shouting and laughing.

Managed to buy a bit of time with some water and food colouring but fear it will be a battle all day long with me trying to work and trying to find things t keep her occupied! 8 working days left including today and still so much to do!!

Wow TT that is great but scary at the same time. Was there something that pushed him to go and see a DR after all this time? 

JG sounds like your mum is in the best place - hope she comes right very soon.

TB - exciting re. your PHD and research project ideas!

I've just spent a morning dashing round town getting little jobs donw. Feel like I've accomplished loads before 11am! I love living in a relatively small place where it doesn't take ages to get from a to b. I also love that I can disappear off and do that because I did some work last night to free up some time while the shops are open. I am now pretty much all sorted for Christmas, just my sisters birthday present (19 Dec) to do and I'm done!!

Blimey Ikkle that is a quick turnaround for surgery!! Always tricky when you have logistics of family esp at Christmas

Well I have FINALLY started to get off my butt and get organised for this baby! Have inherited a set of drawers from a friend so have somewhere to put clothes and am now in the washing and sorting process. Lent a lot of clothes to my sister and her first was a bad reflux baby so a lot of them are pretty ruined - its those horrible yellow stains that don't show up until later so she would be a bit mortified I think if she saw the state some of the stuff has come back in!! Luckily I have a lot of hand me downs this time around. Moses basket also borrowed and carseat out and cleaned so if nothing else gets done at least we'd manage for the first wee while.

Had planned a lie-in and relaxing morning yesterday while hubby spent time with M but she was obviously under the weather and in a nightmare mood so we all just suffered through it all day - thank god she's not like that often! Today she asked if they could go to the walk they had planned for yesterday so off they went at about 7.30 and I got my lie-in - yay! Feeling much better as a result. Now just need the rain to stay away so I can get some outside jobs done and washing dried!

TT I hope you get your referral soon. I've had lots of treatment for bad smear results so know how stressful it is. Got sent a letter after a LETZ saying they wanted me to come in to discuss my results - freaked out totally but when I phoned them they said oh its just standard procedure all is fine - I complained and they have since changed the wording of the letter so as not to insight completely unnecessary panic in other women.

EF well done on the presentation, glad you have that ticked off your list!

M came in and asked how Father Christmas would get into our house yesterday - first real discussions about Christmas and I am EXCITED!! Can't wait to do Christmas with a littlie who 'gets' it now! She is going to love all of it and it will be a really nice distraction from everything baby that will be going on as well!

I was at uni with a girl whose mum told her to tape a piece of banana skin to her foot over the verucca - it was MANKY!!!

Take that as a massive win for the day CM!

Hope EF's presentation went well in London and not too many nightmares were caused by that freaky painting on FB!!

How long is your sister still with you Caro? STink that you have the bonus of someone doing the cooking and you can't even enjoy it though!

I am feeling a bit broken today from overdoing things yesterday. Flat out with work etc then took M for a bike ride along the coastal path in between daycare and birthday party yesterday but didn't agree on how far she could go before stopping and waiting - nearly had to flag down a passing cyclist to go after her!! SO ended up walking much further/faster than I prob should! Birthday party was fun and M so knackered that when we got home at 6 she had a bath and bed with no dinner and no fuss!! Cold still sticking around - coughing constantly is not compatible with being 37 weeks pregnant my poor pelvic floor is clearly useless!! ALright after that TMI I best go and get some work done!!

Snip is reversible - I had a colleague who had exactly same scenario and went on 2 have 2 girls with his second wife. Not cheap though! Hubby can get the snip after this one - we are done I think.

WOnderful for your colleague EF. I was just wrapping a very belated present from my friends new baby (the one who lost her son at 5 months after a liver transplant). Its been a very emotional time for them but they are very happy.

Am feeling pointlessly stressed about something ridiculous!! We have got M a trampoline for christmas (birthday ad christmas combined from several relatives). Hubby was adament we needed a 14 ft one - I am worried we are not going to have any garden left!! Pointless worrying because can't change it now and we won't live here for ever but I just don't think he realises how big its going to be - I keep looking at the space and picturing it in my head!! First world problem right?!!

PG M is 3 and 5 months. I think she'll be fine but suspect we'll have some interesting behaviour to contend with at the same time. Luckily we have Christmas not long after so she has something exciting to look forward to and something we can focus on together thats not all about the baby.

Looks like you managed to get your chemo Caro - love the photo story on FB! I hope you can hunker down and get through this next week as quickly as possible and then enjoy the lead up to Christmas without any more chemo looming!

Feeling coldy and snowed under with work at the moment. Hubby keeps saying just go back to bed, they'll understand and of course they would but I am so conscious that with only 2.5 weeks left at work I have so much to do in order to not leave things in a state and as I have noone to handover to yet I need it all written down! Also aware that as I am working up to just before my due date, I could in theory go earlier so trying to at least get handover notes written in case something happens (of course I will go really overdue but to be honest that looks a bit appealing as I would get some days off while M is at daycare to relax!). I know they'd all survive if I just went but I really like my job and don't want to leave things behind that make me look sloppy!

M is obviously really conscious that everything is about to change. She swings between being excited and saying things like 'I don't want the baby to push me' etc. She is also super clingy with me at the moment - doesn't want to do anything on her own with Daddy. He's planning on taking her out on Saturday to give me a break - I can't wait!!

Hope everyone else ok? Saw a fab race report on FB from MM!! Right, must knuckle down and get some work done!!

Interesting to hear about the second language for Scottish kids - would be interesting to know the reasoning behind it!

Hugs to all who need them esp Camlo - that sounds like an exceptionally bad day by all accounts!!

I have spent 4 hours on the phone for various work calls this morning which means I pick Matilda up shortly having done basically no work SIGH! Really starting to feel the pressure of getting everything wrapped up before I leave! Also the weather is like the middle of winter so am freezing and have a cold - yuck!! 

Sorry, will come back later when I can be less complainy!

That's such good advice Vixo!

Tired tired tired here but finding it hard to even contemplate that I am going to have another baby in 4 weeksish! Please tell me someone else found this whole second child thing completely surreal?!! I feel like I'm going to get the shock of my life when I actually go into labour!
