Happy friday eve people!!!!
how is everyone today?
im tired and my hands hurt but that's nothing new haha
this week my mil came and did my housework for me and filled my freezer with loads of meals she made for us, so this week has been lovely so far,
we had lasagne, chili and wedges and cottage pie, tonight we have toad in the hole
all courtesy of my mother in laws home cooking.
all I'm having to do is turn the oven on.
i wonder how long after the birth I can keep this up haha

Mon that's lovely of your mil. What a relief to not have to do anything when you're hands aren't working well.
AFM- slept ok. Only woke up twice which isn't bad at the moment but I'm still shattered. I've just ordered a couple if gro bags and a swaddle blanket in the zulily sale, these are the second things I'll have bought now. Got a busy day ahead today which is good as it means it'll go fast and I'm one day closer to my scan.

Monnie your MIL sounds fantastic! Must be such a help. I don't mind cooking as I seem to have energy enough for that but I've never liked housework so if she's got a spare weekend send her up north! Haha
Imp - I'm dying to buy things I just can't bring myself to... Really hoping your scan come round quick so you can buy lots more lovely little things. It's so exciting!
I've got nothing much to report baby wise really. Looking at houses to see where we want to be and then we need to get a move on and arrange some viewings. We are hoping this new one will be our last rented place before we can buy, just need the redundancy situation to sort itself out before we can commit!

Jonesy how exciting. Are you moving far from where you are currently?

Monnie, how lovely of your MIL. I'll second Jonesy's sentiment, if she wants to come and clean my house too that'd be lovely!
Imp, I saw the gro bags on Zulilly this morning too, hope you got a good bargain.
Jonesy, hope you find somewhere exciting to rent. I love looking at property, but we're not moving for another year or so, so it's just torturing myself at the moment really!
AFM, yoga was good last night, our normal teacher was back and I like her far more than the substitute. Work again today, it's really quiet at the moment, and that's a bad thing as it's very dull. Nothing to report from Attila, she's having a few wriggles, but nothing too major.

Monnie - that's great of your MIL but it's made me neeeeeeeed a Yorkshire pudding!
Imp - hope you got a good bargain! I might wander over there for a look if there's a sale on
Jonesy - hope you drop on somewhere fab to rent. I love a good look at property myself!
SG - I feel your pain, I've got hardly any work on at the moment so the days are dragging and I feel shattered throguh boredom. Glad you had a good yoga session
AFM - nothing to report baby wise. People are being so kind giving us baby stuff, we have just been given another high chair. My mother's house will be kitted out as well at this rate. We have certainly dropped on with people having just had their babies!
Hi to all who follow :)

Monnie - that's so lovely of your MIL!
Imp - I've managed to get a couple of gro bags from there too :)
Jonesy - hope you find somewhere.
SG - we're very quiet at work too. I hate it as it makes the days go so slowly!
VT - It's lovely being given things second hand and helps to save a few pounds! We have people waiting to find out what we're having as they've got clothes for us and quite a lot of other items coming from my SIL. I'm so grateful!
AFM - off to work at 2pm for another slow late shift :( the boss is on holiday though so at least he won't be lurking around.

Imp we are hoping to move a bit closer to the city but we need to keep prices as low as poss in case redundancy goes ahead. It's a pain!
SG - glad the yoga went well. I like the idea of doing something like that but I've never tried it before
VT - it's really nice how generous people are. I only have one close friend with a baby but she's loaning us everything he doesn't need/use anymore until they're ready for no. 2. It will save us a small fortune! Handy to have your mums sorted too.
Ixia - hope your shift goes quickly. I love it when the boss is out, so much more relaxed haha

Afternoon all :)
Monnie - how very lovely of your MIL to help out the way she has, what a diamond and how lucky are you to get along with her so much
imp - good to hear you slept well and thanks for the heads up about the Zulily sale, I'm having a nosy now mmmmm :) We haven't bough anything big or expensive yet, I still keep putting it off but the odd bit of clothing I'm getting hehe
Jonesy - exciting about the house hunting I hope you find something suitable and how worrying about the redudancy, I hope that works out in your favour too
SG - nice to hear the yoga was good :) I hope your day doesn't drag too much
VT - sounds like you are having a lot of people being generous, that's really kind of them :) My cousin wants to buy us a gym play mat my Mum told her how much they are but as she has 2 daughters she is fully aware and said that's what she wants to get us aww
Ixia - I hope your shift is not as bad as it sounds but good to hear the boss is out ;-)
AFM - can't wait for today to be over with as I have tomorrow off (my birthday) and we are off to Cambridge for shopping (no doubt more baby stuff to have a look at) and then H is treating me to a meal out. The restaurant has great reviews and some people I know have been but I can't have my usual med/rare steak :( so will have to go for something else :) Whoopsy I blame Imp, I've just spent £50 on the Zulily site hehe, H will be pleased with the shopping to come from tomorrow too haha!!
Hi to all :)
