Mrs Bass, have a lovely time with your friend, I'm sure she will be excited for you too!
AFM off to have my hair cut then I really need to do some studying
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and if I'm here all the time it's because I'm avoiding the books!!!

Gemini I hope Im feeling more upbeat in a week! Enjoy the sun!

MrsB - enjoy telling your friend :-)
Jem - we can all give you a virtual "get studying kick up the bum" if you like?
Gem - hope your house is starting to look a bit more organised!
AFM - decorating!! Will post a before/after pic once I'm done. Oh and I swear I can feel my pelvis moving!? Not good.

Hey all! Happy bank holiday Saturday!!!
We've got sunshine too which feels like a miracle!
Mrs bass enjoy seeing your friend,I bet you'll both be excited!
Jem I hope you manage to get lots of studying done, it's do hard when it's so sunny, isn't it?
Gemini I hope the rest of the unpacking goes well. The picture I saw on fb earlier looks lovely and as though you're pretty much all sorted.
Horsefan, I can't wait to see the pictures. I bet it'll look lovely.
AFM. I'm about to have a nap. Been into town on the tram this morning and had pizza express. Just got back and I'm going up catch some zzzzz's. the neighbours are having a party/BBQ and I imagine it'll be quite late, they invited us but we're avoiding them for obvious reasons!
25/05/2013 at 15:28
Mrs Bass - enjoy telling your friend! Hope you have a lovely day.
Jem, hope the studying is going well.
Gemini - your house is looking lovely, hope the unpacking goes well today.
HF - eeek that sounds scary, but is probably a good thing? Enjoy decorating.
Imp - hope you feel refreshed after your nap. Mmmm pizza express - jealous.
AFM - I'm feeling so FAT today. I swear I've put on at least half a stone in 'bloat' overnight :-(. Bought some maternity trousers in the sales today. Think I'm going to end up in them sooner than I think. Got so knackered after a very short shopping trip that I needed a nap - have no energy these days. Got the hairdressers soon and am too tired to get up and go!
25/05/2013 at 16:29
Well the 1st coat is done and I'm officially knackered. Got to go see my horse yet aswell. Eeek
25/05/2013 at 16:39
Gemini, glad you're feeling better
Horsefan, don't overdo it will you. It's good you've finished the first coat but maybe some feet up time is needed!
Imp, I would love a nap!! hope you're not kept up too late
Penny, I'm already in maternity clothes. My normal trousers havent come close to doing up for a fortnight and are an inch away from meeting!
Well i managed to do no studying at all today. Went and got my hair cut this morning because it was horrible, then a bit of shopping, called in to see relatives on the way home then been sorting some boxes out since I got back (I moved into my parents weeks ago and still have boxes all over the place so made an effort to tidy up) maybe I'll get my assignment done tomorrow. Think it's harder because it's not due for a while and I hate the subject but I really need to get as far ahead as I can with it for obvious reasons! My dissertation module starts in November but I need to have got a lot of my research done before then along with the module I'm currently studying as I cant see me having an awful lot of time to get it done to schedule!
25/05/2013 at 20:25
Penny I'm exactly the same. I'm in my fat clothes that I nearly jibbed a year ago, but I decided to keep just in case. Eeeek, I defo look like I've got a bump now. I'm sure it's just bloating but it's a bump none the less.
Horsefan well done on even doing one coat in this weather. We painted our shed this morning and that was tough going and it's only tiny!
Jem, I hope you enjoyed your day, maybe be because you're more organised you'll be able to focus better tomorrow.
The neighbours BBQ is in full swing, it's not as noisy as the last back holiday so hopefully I won't be awake until 3am this time! They're normally dead quiet so we don't complain as its so rare, but it's fairly frustrating when you want to sleep. I'm currently enjoying a glass of schloer, it's nicer than I remember!
25/05/2013 at 21:25
Hi all! Hope everyone's enjoyed the sunshine today! Jem likewise I've done zero revision! I unfortunately have an exam a week on Monday and I've not even studied all the text yet, I'm seriously never going to pass this! On the plus side I did get 6 loads of washing done and dried today, yes that's 6!! I still can't believe it, that's just unheard of for Scotland.
Mrs bass, hope you had a great time telling your friend!
Penny and Imp I can sympathise with the fat clothes, I've got very little I can get fastened now, I'm really struggling! Again I know it's down to bloating but I have a very evident bloat bump and this warm weathers not helping my cause for hiding it. Imp sorry your missing the BBQ but understand why! I hope it doesn't go on to long and you get to sleep ok. My H is on his 4th sunny afternoon/evening beer and I'm having ... a glass of milk!
Gemini I hope you got the rest of your unpacking done.
HF I'm looking forward to your before and after pics! I love decorating photos!
Tomorrow I HAVE to revise and also need to re-raid my wardrobe for some clothes otherwise I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get some bigger trousers at least.
Also delighted to see tweetie pies BA this evening, I can't even describe how delighted I am for her, she must be so ecstatic tonight!x
26/05/2013 at 08:13
Well the party got a lot quieter at about midnight, so I'm fairly well rested this morning. I shoved my ear plugs in and couldn't hear anything. Another sunny day here today so I'm off to sit out in the garden to have brekkie.
Missdeedee good luck revising and looking for clothes to wear. I was so relieved when I got my fat clothes out yesterday!
26/05/2013 at 12:02
Just having a tea break Inbetween doing 2nd coat of red. Then got white above picture rail to do, plus paint the picture rail, skirting board and radiator. Argghh!
26/05/2013 at 16:38
Awww HF sounds like you've had another busy day!!! Hope you're going to be spoilt a bit later on
missdeedee hope you had a productive day today, what are you studying for?
Imp the sunshine did hinder my focus a bit...
Managed to do one question out of three done but it was the longest one and worth half the marks so I think I can be pleased with that. The next question is just putting some graphs together and then one on diagramming which is good as it wants the same diagrams I actually had to learn about in my last module so should be fairly easy to put together, if I can make myself do it!!! Sat in the garden studying and have managed to burn one arm and one leg!!! I never normally even tan so that's come as quite a shock to the system. Will now be buying suncream for my holiday in three weeks...
Hope everyone else has been enjoying the sun today
26/05/2013 at 17:48
HorseFan- I can't wait to see your before & after photos!
Imp Im glad that the party didnt keep you up to late! Good plan with the ear plugs!
Penny my trouses are so tight! I keep prodding to my belly to see if any of it is bump but it is al still squidgy so it must all be bloatedness & weight gain! :-(
Jem I really feel for you! I always seemed to work better under pressure but would put no effort into the subjects I didnt enjoy! i was an awful student thought! Well done for getting a big chunk of it done!
missdeedee its amazing what jobs around the house you suddenly realise need doing when you are trying to avoid something! 6 loads is impressive!
AFM- My friend was really excited!! She has already started planning all the things she wants to buy the baby!! I got home from her's at lunch tme today, had some lunch in the garden then I mowed the lawn, went to the super market, baked a cake, cleaned the kitchen! I still have to ice the cake and Im going to make myself some spag bol for dinner!
i'll probably be asleep on the sofa by 7pm after all that!
H has had gigs all weekend so i havent seen him since y.day morning, he is due back at stupid O'clock tonight so i wont see him until tomorow morning. Atleast tomorrow we are off to visit some friends for a couple of days so I can remind myself of what he looks like! By the sound of it he has had a great weekend drinking in the sun! This weather has really made me want to sit in the garden drinking all afternoon!!
27/05/2013 at 09:46
Jem, how did the second part of your studying go yesterday? Have you got some free time today, just to chill out?
Mrs Bass - wow you had a productive day! Awww, glad your friend was so happy, that's lovely.
missdeedee - I know, isn't it brilliant to see TP's BA? Hope you can find some trouders that fit in your wardbrobe. I'm literally relying on Primark to get me through the next few weeks. I've also just bought these for work in New Look and they are so amazingly comfy, and as they are under-bump ones they are not really obvious if you wear a long-ish top - www.newlook.com/.../maternity-32in-black-underbump-bistretch-trousers_267554101 and www.newlook.com/.../maternity-black-underbump-slim-leg-trousers-_270384401
HF - how's the decorating going?
Imp - hope you're ok today.
27/05/2013 at 09:57
They look lovely penny. I'm tempted myself but I'm going to try and hold off for now. I've got trousers in a size 12, I'm normally a 10 so I think the 12's should see me through the next few weeks. At least I hope so!
I'm not feeling good at all today, had a migraine last night and I couldn't take my normal medication so it was just paracetamol and forehead strips! Ouchies!!!! It's gone this morning but I feel like I'm on another planet!
27/05/2013 at 10:04
Imp failed miserably on the clothes front, even my 'bigger clothes' are too tight or I can't fasten. I'm never going to string out these clothes for 4 weeks so think I'm going to have to buy a couple of things.
Jem I'm studying for ACCA (charted accountancy qualification) well done for doing so much y'day, I did next to nothing again, but I'm determined to study today!
HF hows the room looking now?
Mrs Bass, hope you have a nice few days, are you off for a while?
Penny thanks for that, I'll have a look at new look and see if there's anything I could get. I was so pleased for TP, I've also seen a pic of baby TP and he is gorgeous!! Hopefully they'll both be home soon.
AFM really struggled this morning, was feeling mega sick! Got up at half 6 and had to go back to bed at half 8 when H left for work! I slept about 30 mins and when I woke up I had something to eat, literally the minute I got out of bed and after that and a shower I'm feeling better now. So glad I wasn't at work today or I doubt I would have made the commute today without loosing my breakfast!
Just about to start studying, I'm determined to do 2 hours straight until 12 and then take the dog for a walk for a break!x
27/05/2013 at 12:06
They look nice Penny. Bet they wouldn't be long enough for me tho (I'm 6ft1).
Imp - glad migraine has gone quickly.
MDD - yuk to being sick :-( you'll have to stash some biscuits in your bedside table or something to eat the second you wake up!
I'm bored of painting now. Am on the tedious woodwork (skirting, picture rail, door frame, windowsill) and radiator. Yawn!
27/05/2013 at 12:21
Its very ummmm red!
(Carpenter is coming this affy to sort the missing skirting & picture rail)
