Its been very quiet here lately so I don't know how many of you will actually be posting here! Anyway, not much to really report from me. Potty training going well and H and I are going away for the weekend. So looking forward to some much needed time on our own, especially before baby arrives.
Today I've got to drop F at nursery and then pop to the shops to pick a few things up. I did quite a bit of housework on Wed so I might just chill for the rest of the day!
Hi to those who follow.

A weekend away sounds lovely! I think you should chill for the rest of the day :)
Not much to report babywise. Arms not been too bad at all after the whooping cough jab. Definitely ached more last year. Trying to decide which household jobs I want to do today. It's either sorting out the airing cupboard or starting to sort out the spare room that's become a bit of a dumping ground. Not sure which is the lesser of 2 evils! Got some bits for my hospital bag yesterday as I had a boots voucher and picked up some nappies I ordered on tesco direct as they have some offers on and at the mo if you buy anything through tesco direct you can double up your tesco club card vouchers. Also got a lamaze hedgehog for a pregnant work colleague due in a few weeks as it was half price and with the doubling of vouchers I only paid £2.50 in vouchers for it!

Morning :-). Weekend away sounds great WG, we're off for a spa break next week unless baby shows up in the meantime. Good to grab all the couple time you can, I think! Bunny, you seem like you're getting organised too. Glad your jab wasn't too bad, and hope you get some rest today.
Nothing to report here really. Last hair stylist visit before baby this afternoon, and have a mound of house jobs (extra from normal housework) I keep putting off. I think I'll know baby is imminent when I tackle them in a final fit of nesting!

WG - glad potty training is going well, enjoy your weekend away and make sure you get lots of relaxing in
Bunny - I did the same thing with the club card vouchers and stocked up on some size 3 nappies as already been buying some size 2 on amazon
BF - enjoy your hair appointment and fingers crossed your nesting instinct kicks in!
AFM - last day at work today, packing up my desk right now and will be leaving at 1 as got a car to take me home with my bits and gifts from the office. Going to do some last minute shopping today for gifts for parties M has been invited to over August so I can get them wrapped and ready and if I am out of action my Mum will take her to her parties. I also want to strip all the beds and get them washed whilst the sun is still out as it's supposed to be thunder storms tomorrow where I am

WG - Have excellent weekend away!
Barefoot - I know what you mean about nesting, I've had OH help me clean the house to within an inch of it's life.
AFM - OH and I, plus my parents, are off to seaside tomorrow and staying overnight, weather is looking a bit dodgy but at least it'll be a bit cooler! Have booked myself in for a haircut next week, can't wait haha, still deliberating covering up my new found greys even the MIL couldn't believe my grey hairs yesterday - charming eh?! No great plans for today, just chillaxing, day time tv and packing for tomorrow. OH is going golfing for a bit.

Did try and post earlier but got mugged by a 2 year old!
WG - Glad to hear potty training is going well. Hope you have a fab weekend, I'm so jealous!!
Bunny - we made the most of clubcard vouchers too and I got a kindle :-) sounds like you're being v productive with your holidays!
BF - Enjoy your pampering!
Nina - have a fab last day! Great idea getting the presents sorted in advance...I think I'm due a trip to stock up on family birthday cards etc for the month!
Ali - Enjoy your night by the sea :-)
AFM- nesting overdrive yesterday....scrubbed everything to within an inch of its life! Can't be arsed with any more batch cooking now though....I'm done! Today I largely plan to chill a bit...just burning O out at soft play first!

Bunny - your spare room sounds a lot like ours, ours is just a dumping ground. Hoping to start clearing it next weekend. Sounds like you've made good progress on the hospital bag front! I've also started getting odds and ends. I think the main thing missing now is a nightie.
BF - I'm very jealous of your spare weekend next week! It'll be lovely to unwind for a bit. Enjoy getting your hair done later today too. With my last pregnancy, F arrived not long after I spent the afternoon washing down all the kitchen cupboards!
NB - enjoy your last morning at work and enjoy the rest over the next few weeks even more! I don't know about you but I find stripping the beds such a chore. Hope you get them washed and dry before any storm.
Ali - enjoy your weekend at the seaside. Hopefully it won't rain but just be a little cooler.
Coco - hope you manage to put your feet up later after all that scrubbing yesterday!
I've just got back from the shops. Managed to buy a few more bits for baby including some bodysuits and a Lamaze toy (Tesco had it reduced from £10 for £6.50!) Now I'm home I need to do the food shop online to be delivered Monday, make a start on sorting stuff to pack for our night away and sort some washing out.
