Things are going good here in expectant mum land, but with Christmas approaching rapidly, itâ€™s getting difficult to steer away from the chocolate and mince pies! I am occupying my time doing lots of Christmas shopping whilst my husband is working away in the vain attempt to still feel festive, but without the expanding (non-pregnancy) waistline.
A few things have happened in my personal life this week, and I must admit, it has been hard to focus on keeping the stress levels down and concentrating on looking after myself, but luckily my little girl is keeping me busy and always manages to make me smile when she kisses my bump.
On a happier note though, I graduated last week! Whoopie! It was two years of hard work but it was worth it in the end, and what a lovely day it was! Obviously, it was hard to find something that fitted, but it was nice to have a day out and see some good friends who had worked just as hard.
So, with only a few weeks left until baby arrives I have started to nest; I keep cleaning things that really donâ€™t need cleaning, moving things around and generally canâ€™t keep still for two minutes, when really I should have my feet up! I’ve got to admit, it is nice to keep busy, although I am still in bed by 8pm every night!
So if like me, you canâ€™t keep still, give the list of jobs to a willing volunteer and get resting, it is Christmas after allâ€¦
