Morning all, I haven't started a thread in a while!
Hope you all had a lovely Easter.
I've taken advantage of some Easter discounts and bought some pramsuits (in a couple of sizes to hopefully last the winter) and a few little sleeps suits (although some are presents for friends due in the summer). I've also been nesting this weekend, and we have sorted out loads of cupboards and chucked loads of stuff away. Think I am starting to feel a few more wriggles, not obvious kicks yet, but there is definitely something in there!
Anyone doing anything fun on this last day off?
Hi to all that follow x

Gavi - it feels good to have a clear out doesn't it? We took a car load down to the charity shop on Saturday as I cba to do a carboot and gets it out of the house ready for the move on Saturday.
AFM - more packing today then round to the IL's for a roast later this aft. Will be the last time we see them before we move I think so I bet they will be all dramatic. It's not like we're moving abroad! And they never visited us anyway whilst we lived down here. Backs been hurting a lot so I've had to rest it regularly. I need to get in to a routine of doing my exercises but its so hard when I'm trying to pack and sort the house!
Hi go those that follow x

Gavi where did you get the clothes from? I've got some money left on a next gift card that was given to k so was looking at their sleepsuits, but h thinks we should wait until after the 20 week scan. We will see if I can wait that long! Sounds like you have been really busy this weekend. That's great about the wriggles!
Browny are you moving far from where you are now? Hope that the packing doesn't take too long. Have you got much left to do? Enjoy your roast, at least you don't have to cook!
Not much planned here. Was going to go to my bil and sil for dinner but neither of us slept well last night so we want to get an early night tonight before going back work. We had a good chat this morning as both of us have been stressed out and emotionally drained the last couple of weeks with everything going on so we're going to try and relax a bit more and might Try and go swimming together once a week. Looking forward to going to work tomorrow as I will be telling them that I'm pregnant again.

Gavi - wriggles sound lovely! so exciting when you first start to feel it! well done on your bargains as well
Browny - roast sounds lovely - where are you moving to? is it far away?
Bunny - sounds like a plan to relax with your H - never underestimate how much it is needed and swimming sounds lovely. Exciting to tell your work tomorrow
AFM - our 2 year wedding anniversary! goes so quickly. We've spent 3 days clearing out flat and finally feel I can relax! Still at home now but going to go into town and have a mooch and hopefully get late lunch/early dinner somewhere and have a walk around Westminster /st james park which is the area we got married 2 years ago!

Bunny - We're moving about 200 miles away - from Surrey to Yorkshire so yes it is relatively far, but easily doable in a weekend! Sorry to hear you are feeling stressed but its really good you are talking about it and some quality time together sounds lovely. Good luck tomorrow!
CJ - as above, from Surrey to Yorkshire! Happy wedding anniversary! Hope you have a lovely afternoon x

Ceejay congratulations on your wedding anniversary! Time does fly sometimes. Hope you have a nice walk and food. Sounds like a lovely day.
Browny yes that's doable in a weekend. My parents thought I moved to the ends of the earth going from Kent to Hertfordshire so I know what you mean about possible dramatics! Hope you're resting your back.

Evening ladies, sorry I'm a bit late to this today.
Gavi - it certainly feels good to have a proper sort out and throw away rubbish. We desperately need to have a weekend to do some clearing!
Browny - I hope your back is feeling a bit better, try not to over do things with the packing. Easier said than do though, isn't it?
Bunny - I hope you and H have managed to have a relaxing day. Swimming together sounds like a lovely idea.
CJ - Happy anniversary! I hope you've had a lovely day.
AFM, H and I took F to his usual swimming class this morning. It was nice having his class on a bank holiday as it meant that H could come along. We then came home and have spent most of the day doing bits in the garden. I really need to get my bum into gear and see about going to a yoga class. Think that'll be this evening/tomorrow's job!

Gavi - Exciting that you are feeling wiggles! I look forward to that stage :)
Browny - I hope the packing is going well and your back pain eases. Where in Yorkshire are you moving to? I moved last year from South Yorkshire back to Surrey!
bunny - Enjoy telling people at work tomorrow about your news :) Swimming once a week sounds great, H and I are trying to do that, but we are always so busy individually, that we rarely get an evening together to go.
CJ - Happy Wedding Anniversary! I hope you've had a lovely afternoon.
AFM - Went back to Sheffield this weekend to see friends and some family. It's been a while since we've seen some of them so it was great to catch up and share our news with them. We went to pram browsing too, thought we had decided on which one we wanted, then I read the reviews and now I'm not so sure. The reviews aren't awful, the main comments were regarding the wheels being used anywhere other then pavements. At the moment we live quite rural so I'm thinking we need to start our search again. A friend has offered us her old bugaboo gecko, it's immaculate, so thats one to consider too.
I hope you've all had a lovely Easter! xxx
