Having a "come down" :o(

I'm feeling a bit down today.

I've not had a brilliant day at work. It was nice working with Sarah and chatting to Elaine but the rest just gets me down. And I've been so tired and achey today, made all the worse by my wellies splitting, my pumps not fitting comfortably over my poorly toe, and having to plod round the site in my high boots on account of them being the warmest and most comfortable thing left. And in truth they were neither warm nor comfortable by the end of the day. I'll be buying some new ones on Tuesday.

But the main thing is that I had built myself up for the scan so much.... and now (brilliant though it was) it's over and done. I wont see Squiggle again until the birth which still seems like such a long way off (19 weeks to go from tomorrow).

I know I have other things to look forward too. Squiggle-wise I have: finishing work next week, being Viable at 24 weeks, moving into 3rd Tri at 27 weeks, baby shopping etc. I can also book in for a heartbeat sound scan at some point - which I haven't done yet because of the weather and things.

We're also meeting my mother-in-law tomorrow at my mums. She's bringing over the pram so I can play with that for a while too, and my oioi bag is being posted this weekend so I should have that too and I can start play packing / pre packing my hospital bag (sounds odd, but it's a mum-to-be olympic sport).

The next big thing though, is that it is less than 2 months to Jack's birthday and I have been planning what to buy him and wondering what we'll actually do for his birthday.

Maybe I am just tired. I might have a nice long sleep on Sunday.... We've nothing planned and I really need to recharge my batteries for my last week at work. Maybe a bit of me time, of pampering myself with a long warm bath, good book and no phones, will make me feel better.

Here's hoping!

aww I know what you mean about not getting to see the baby again, it seems like the first scan and the second scan are really close together then nothing! I was tempted to go for a 4d scan just so i could see Lils again but i get freaked out by the blobby quished alien heads, sorry you are having such a rough time at work I know it all feels about 100 times worse when you are pregnant xhugsx

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
