Got one of my best friends coming to visit this weekend with her boyf which will be nice. they are going to watch the London marathon on Sunday as they know someone running it so we might pop to the carboot and see what bargains we can find! x

Browny - Weekend sounds really nice, are you looking for anything specific at the bootsale? I am going to do some in May time, we done quite well last year and it isn't a bad way to spend the day as long as the weather is nice
AFM - Got a busy day, venue huntint this morning for a couple of events I am planning, then back to the office for some last minute filing before my boss returns from Sydney (booooo) on Monday. TOmorrow I am taking the day off and we are going to a nature reserve for a picnic with my cousin and her girls then out with Mum to Miranda in the evening. Just hope my hips are ok with A) walking inthe day and B) sitting in the evening, would it be accaptable to take my own cushion to miranda!?

Browny - I love good car boot sale! Have a lively time with your friends this weekend. I'm glad bubba Browny got its wiggle on for you. Always reassuring.
Nina - Your nature reserve trip and seeing Miranda sounds marvellous! I hope your hips last the day x
AFM - I had dominoes last night. When will I learn these babies do not like pizza! I spent a lot of the night with awful tummy cramps and hugging the loo. I haven't gone into work today as I had zero sleep, but they told me not to come in tomorrow in case it is a stomach bug. The only bug is my two little fussy-pizza-hating-twin bugs! I think I may start crocheting them a hat each to fill my days off.

Nina - have a lovely day tomorrow and yes, why not take a cushion to Miranda?! I'm sure she wouldnt mind ;)
Ducky - I love Dominos! I can't believe the twinnies don't like it! How very dare they! Sounds like you had quite a night - hope you manage to recover today. But yay to two days off work! When I was in Iceland there was a shop which sold crochet toadstools. They were very cute!
Well I've done some yoga this morning, which is more exercise than I've done all week so feeling very proud of myself. Need to go to the supermarket at some point today :(

Browny - Another car boot lover here! Got your eyes on anything in particular? Well done on the yoga, hope the supermarket isn't too traumatic. ..I HATE supermarket shopping!
Nina - hope today goes quickly and that you have a cracking day tomorrow. Completely acceptable to take a cushion IMO!
Ducky - naughty sprouts, I love pizza...especially dominoes! Think we'll need flashes of these hats once you've finished!
AFM - Last day in this house today! ☺Ridiculously excited but would like someone to wave a wand and get it all unpacked the other end for us! I probably won't get on too regular over the next week or so until we've got wifi again, but will try and pop in as and when I can. Good luck to anyone having scans in that time! X

Ducky - poor you!! I love pizza, don't have it often as the dough really disagrees with my husband with much the same affect as you are having!
Coco - loads of luck with the move lovely, I bet you cannot wait to get it over with and settled into your new home
Browny - do you go to a class? I have been looking for a local Yoga class as think it would be a good thing to help with relaxation too before baby arrives?

Browny - your weekend sounds lovely. Hope the car boot turns up trumps. I've not been to one of those in years!! Well done on the yoga too. Has it helped any? Probably to early to see but hopefully it will some effect on your hip/knee pains.
NB - Enjoy your Friday off! Hope you hips hold up ok and I would say totally acceptable to taking a cushion to the theatre. Needs must!
Ducky - you can swap with me if you like! My baby craves pizza like you wouldn't believe. Extra cheese too. I have only given in twice but I can see them getting more demanding as time goes on! Hope you feel better soon though. Yay for crochet projects. Definitely have to flash when they're done and then if you have more time I shall commission you for myself. As a charitable move of course to keep you busy on any further days off haha.
Coco - loads of luck for the move!! Hope it all goes well and it's not too stressful!!
AFM - Got my ECG fitted and it is quite discreet - thanks NB for the reassurance- as long as I wear high necked tops. They've given it to me for a full week too. My aim for today is to perhaps irresponsibly try and bring on a palpitation so they can measure it so I am having a caffeinated coffee for the first time in over a year. See how that goes down!
Hi to those that follow!

Coco - good luck for the move! Hope it goes well. No just want to have a mooch around. When my sister was pregnant the first time, she'd been made redundant and was skint so I scouted our local carboot week after week for bargains for her. Got her so much stuff for so cheap! People sell hardly used and new stuff for so much less than new. So I thought I'd have a look see what we can get ourselves. I remember I got her a baby bath, one of the big ones, for £1 and it looked like new. It was over £20 in the shops!
NB - no I do it at home. I bought a 'yoga for pregnancy' book from Aldi for about £2. Its a bit awkward at first as you have to read the moves but I've got the hang of it now. There are loads of workouts for each trimester. I used to do yoga and Pilates DVDs at home before. Have you had a look at your local gyms or swimming pools? I've had a look for when I move and there is a swimming pool/gym in the local town with an aqua natal class twice a week and a pre-natal Pilates class too.
Jonesy - yes yoga has helped my trapped nerve and bad back immensely. I haven't done much for a couple of weeks and I've noticed the difference. Its amazing what stretching and gentle exercise can do! Glad your ECG is fitted and discreet! Let's hope they get some readings that can help you.
I went to the supermarket and I'm now shattered and my bump aches :( think I did too much. I spent ages there as I'm so indecisive with my anxiety/depression. I wrote a list of everything I needed but still couldn't decide on things like what flavour humous to buy. Stupid I know! With my friend coming this weekend I had to get the supplies in for them, so it took extra long. And I bought loads so probably shouldn't have carried so much, even just lifting into the car and to the house has done me in! So I'm going to have a relax this afternoon! X
