And a weekend away!
One of the bits of advice we decided to take from friends was “get away for a last hurrah holiday before the baby arrives”. Sound advice we thought! So this weekend was spent celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary and a last weekend away for just the two of us. We went to Nutfield Priory Hotel and Spa in Surrey which was wonderful. Swanky setting, lovely cuisine, great service and a spa day on Sunday to chill us out. It was just what we both needed- having not really had a holiday this year (visits to family and weekends away to weddings and hen do’s don’t count!).
We got back on the Bank Holiday Monday which was nice too!
Day 2 of Maternity leave I met some nice ladies from Mumsnet for a cuppa and cake, and I did a little shopping (and exploring local bus routes I’ve not used before). Also took a bit of time to do some general tidying and sorting which needed doing. Day 3 involved more tidying and sorting (lots to do), a vet trip and a midwife visit and then picking blackberries with a friend. Day 4 is today and I’ve had a bit of a slow start as I’m not feeling my best today. I’ve had a bit of a sore throat for a few days and been feeling very dehydrated. I’m off now to meet a yoga mummy friend who had her baby 4 weeks ago!
We’re having our baby shower at the weekend (which to be fair is more of a get together with friends) and I’m really looking forwards to it. Just need to do some planning and some tidying! We have wine and a vague list of food to buy but not much else! I need to get onto it this afternoon!
