Having to be grown up

*Sulk*

Some things about being a proper grown up.... I NO like!

Last night I took out my nipple bar for the last time. I've had that piercing for around 10 years and it's been one of my favs. But it is hardly suitable for someone who will be breastfeeding in the next few weeks. It's not safe or hygienic for baby, and will most likely get in Wiggles way when trying to feed anyway. Plus I doubt it would fit in the expressor when I come to going back to work - not without getting jammed and causing me to make an embarrassing trip to A&E...

So it's gone.

Sure... I could get it re-done once Wiggle is off the boob, but if we're going to have more children - and lets face it, we probably are - it's just a waist.

It's not really a big deal, it's only jewellery after all. But it's also one step away from the kid I was and one step closer to the responsible adult I'm going to have to be. It's taken me more than 2 weeks from being told I would have…

Fun!

I like this!


Worn out

I am SO tired....

I think I may have been kiddied to near DEATH! Although I can't pretend I haven't been enjoying it

On Tuesday Jen came over with her two lads, and we went to the park. On Saturday Kate came over with the two nephews, and we went to the only family friendly pub that seems to be left in Lancaster and them them loose in the Fun Factory. On Sunday Jacs came over with her two girls, and we had two long sessions in the park, one either side of a very disappointing lunch at the Water Witch.

It's not like I did a lot with any of the kids myself... Conner's still too small (I stuck to pushing the pram, I can do that. Gives me something to lean on) and Jen took Adam round the park, Chris & Nick were happy enough swarming over their Uncle Mark, and on Sunday Yorkie and David ran round the park with Caitlin & Mia while me and Jacquie had a catch up natter, so I really can't blame the kids for my being so tired. But I really, really am!

Sunday night …

Happy Valentines Day

This year we said we weren't going to make a fuss about Valentines. Money is tight with the baby on the way so big gifts of past years (like going halves on a PlayStation, buying jewellery and computer games) are out of the question.

Romance, however, is far from dead! This morning my wonderful Husband brought me breakfast in bed: heart shaped toast with jam on to make them red! How sweet!

Tonight, instead of going out for a posh dinner, we're off to the supermarket. But he's said he'll buy me a big slab of choc, and he wants some champagne marmite, so that will be my gift to him.

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I was so tried when I got to bed that I fell asleep within seconds, regardless of heartburn and kicky-baby! Mum came over in the morning, she'd come to go along with me to the Breastfeed session at the RLI but also wanted to buy this mobile she'd had her heart set on for baby, but only seen in Lancaster. So we trundled off into town and she bought this:

Longest Appointment EVER!

We set off at 2pm, plenty of time. But as usual had problems finding somewhere to park... in fact we gave up on the hospital car park all together and parked further away and walked. Turned out to be quicker (Note to friends and family members who wish to see us and new baby in hospital: park at our house and get a taxi over! It costs less too!)

Our appointment was at 2.30 and we got there just in time. Just in time to be shown the waiting room and sit there. For ages. But while we where there we spotted Jill as she left, and wound up sat next to Esther - who runs Kitten Fever and did my pre-hen-party-party - with only 2 weeks to go before her baby is due. So that's another one to add to the tally! Baby Boom!!!

Eventully got called and had my blood pressure cheked. That's ok. And my pee. Slight infection there so I have to antibioltics for that, no biggie. Then we got room shuffled a couple of times and eventually got seen by the consultant and a medical student.

The both meas…

IT-hee-hee

Sat at my desk today at work, and I'm trying to reply to an email from one of the sites I'm still looking after to rearrange a meeting date and time.

Only I can't seem to send the email. I keep getting the message that the SMTP is cover subscribed / too many connections etc... so I do the usual: wait a while and try again, log out and log in again to try again etc, but nothing. So I tap on ITs window (which is right by my desk anyway) and say "I'm sure you already know about this, but my email is all wibbley". Simon looks confused and peers out of the window, reading my screen. They were not aware...

So after some tapping and thinking Simon and Paul hit on the probable reason. A while earlier they had been testing something with email and had set emails to be sent continuously in Pauls email address to see how quickly they could be sent (I think that was the gist of it). But that had been switched off an hour ago.

Hee hee... It hadn't switched off. In fact …
