Last post before baby?

Right. Well. So. There's about 10 hours to go now before I'm due at the hospital. I have been very good at keeping busy all day, the only thing I didn't manage to do was scrub the bathroom. But I'm sure mum wont mind too much. I'll give it a once over with a sponge and spray after I wash in the morning, it'll only tale 5 mins in my tiny tiny bathroom.

I'm sat here in my nightie and robe, with my penultimate raspberry leaf tea. I'm saving the last one to have with breakfast. The kitchen is gleaming, Jack is tucked into his cot (reluctantly, but I explained that Nana needed to borrow his bed just for a few nights and he accepted it, bless him). We've all had a lovely roast pork loin dinner. The cupboards are full of shopping and everyone has clean bedding. Bags are all packed and ready to go.

All I  need to do now is dry my hair and try to get a good night's sleep. We've opted to get a taxi to the hosp in the morning rather than have mum take us, mainly so that Jack wont get upset when we get out of the car and he doesn't. This way we can say bye and he can shut the front door on us, rather than us walk away from him. He finds that easier to deal with...

I'm reasonably relaxed about the whole thing now. I'm going to miss Jack terribly. I have some slight concerns about what if the induction doesn't work as well as it could and baby gets into distress but I'm sure that's just nerves. The RLI are very good and I know we're in safe hands. I'm just ... well, it's like a kid waiting for Christmas or something. That'll be the only reason I don't sleep well tonight. Excitement, not worry or stress.

So really this is my fair ye well and see you on the other side post, because I can't see me having any time to post in the morning. Not if we have to be out of the house by 7.40am. I've got used to not getting out of bed till 8am! Those of you on the forum, I have people who will up date that for me as I progress (or not as the case may be to start with) and for everyone else, my sister-in-law Jenny has agreed to update my facebook wall with updates too. http://www.facebook.com/charliebeth.chig

Bye for now!!!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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…
