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!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
