Long overdue blog post

Gosh, i didnt realise i last updated in July. How my blog has been neglected! Life has just been too too busy.

Firstly, for all my blog friends that i have neglected over the past few months, i apologise! Let me know if you're on facebook though (and how to find you)! Thats the best way to keep in touch with me these days. I have it on my phone so its a lot more accessible.

So here's a bullet point list of all thats been going

- I was working fulltime, which i hated

- I stopped for maternity leave last week. Hurray, a whole year off and i will not be going back fulltime.

- We have a beautiful new home which we moved into at the beginning of September. A sparkly 4 bedroom new-build. I love it. We had a lot of work to pack up the flat, clean and tidy it and get it rented out.

- I am having a baby on Wednesday. Yes, Wednesday! My due date was the 25th but the baby has been breech and hasnt turned so im having a csection on the 12th. Scary Mary. Caleb was an emergency section so i know what to expect but this will be quite a different experience. I had a labour etc last time and the section was the last resort. It'll be weird going in cold to have a baby.I am looking forward to it though, im done in. I know a baby and a toddler will be hard work but pregnancy has been hard going and im looking forward to getting my body back to "normal."

- I got Labyrinthitis (an inner ear thing) on the first day of my maternity leave. Talk about bad luck! After 7 whole days i still have a high pitched ringing in my right ear which is torture. Mental torture.

So today is my last day on my own for a long time! Caleb is in nursery on a Friday. He's doing great, such good fun and making us laugh constantly with the things he says.

Im off to get organised for this baby.... I will leave with a picture of my beautiful new home

p.s. its probably been about 6months since i stitched!!!

How lovely to hear from you again. Such a lot has happened too. Your new house looks great, it is nice to be the first ever occupants, to start it's history. Just a few days to go to your new baby, how exciting! It will be such fun for Caleb too. Very best wishes to your family. Irene xxx

Nice to hear from you Cheryl. You will be fine. My planned section was a lot better than the emergency and it was a pleasant experience all round. Hope all goes well for you. Take lots of pics. xx

Vonna said...

Great good luck on the birth of your newest addition! It will be so much fun (and work but mostly fun!).
You have a splendid new home! Congratulations to that as well :)

It's so good to hear from you Cheryl! Your new home is wonderful!! Looks like you'll have much more room for your growing family.
Good luck with the section. You must be so excited and relieved too since it's been a long pregnancy. Afterwards you should be able to get some relief from your ear woes too.
Keep us posted. I can't wait to see some pics of that new little one and some updates on Caleb too.

Good to hear from you :) Congrats on the new home! And like Hazel said, my planned C's were way better than the emergency one was too... and my daughter's birthday is on the 12th too, it's a good day! Hope everything goes well for you and you get settled in nicely as a family of four!

Cheryl it's so good to hear from you. Good luck with the birth! I am sure that Caleb will be very excited to meet the new baby.

I hope all goes smoothly and you are able to get some rest and plenty of help afterwards.

I am on Facebook too, my name should be attached to any email I have sent you. There is only one on Facebook.
