Things to do before your due....

Before having Lydia i was reading something online about 'the top 14 things to do before your due', and i thought they never mentioned a good few things that i could think of!

  1. Before your the size of a whale shave your lady parts and cut/paint your toe nails
  2. Have lots of sex whilst you still have time/not sore/feel like it
  3. Cook/bake some really nice meals as its takeaways from birth onwards!
  4. Have an arts&crafts day before you can't use a needle anymore for fear of dropping it and the baby eating it!
  5. Play some really loud music as its hush-hush as soon as you pop!
  6. Watch some really good films as you will no longer have that amount of UN-interrupted time for another 18yrs or so
  7. Arrange to see all of your friends as half of them will disappear as soon as you become a mummy!
  8. Have an interesting /normal conversation with you other half, as its all nappie's,puke and poop after!
  9. Go shopping just for yourself, afterwards you won't be able to go out and return home without having got the baby a present!
  10. Enjoy your lie-in's and duvet days before you have to go for days on end without rest or sleep!
  11. Wear some really nice perfume. Its going to be a good few years where all you can smell is sick and poop!
  12. Have a long soak in the bath with candles and alcohol-free fizzy wine. Its a quick shower if your lucky when baby's here.
  13. Read a really good book and get into it, as it'l be a sentence a week soon!
  14. Remember to join a mum's disscussion forum so you can rant and get advice once they arrive,trust me they're a life saver!

I could go on,but i think i've made my point xxx

Whats happening?

Recently home life has been super stressful!
We were 2/3 way of sorting out the flat,tidying and making more room. Having a massive sort out and clean up! It was going so well until....
The landlady decided we need the kitchen doing, mice invaded and it got gutted! So all the kitchen stuff is in the front room! Whilst there she decided to look at the bathroom, oh dear! She got the floor boards ripped up and the sink is now hanging off the wall and the bath is half usable with no side panel or sealant and all the stuff is in the bedroom!!! So we only have the sofa and the bed for space. Which, due to the lack of space has been causing a lot of tension and STRESS!!!!!!!
I have been trying to escape the house everyday to get out of the madness, but there's only so many times in a week that you can wander around preston park or london road without feeling like you've lost the plot!
Now,amongst the chaos we have almost masterd a bedtime routine. And i thought i would try to do something for me.....
I managed to find myself again! Its been 6months but i did it!
In the bath of all places!
I had a glorious 40Min's all to myself! Cava,candles and a good book. Bath full to the brim and baby monitor on the side and peace in my head!
It was great to 'find myself' again and relax, soaking away the aches and pains of motherhood, forgetting about all the housework that's been put on standby and just being me!
And let me tell you, i am fabulous!
