My blog - March 2009

March goes out like a lamb...sort of.

March 31st 2009, 11:47am

March has come to an end, and so has my time at work! I have April off as annual leave, and then my maternity leave starts May 5th. I'm so glad it worked out for me to have the time off in April, because, as I'm sure many of you guessed would happen, I still have projects galore in store for me.

So I shall be a busy person for the next month. But at least I'm off work, so I have more time and energy to get things done! Only 7 weeks from today until this kiddo is due. My sister's dream of me assembling the cot/crib and doing breathing exercises while in labour won't come true - we bought the cot a couple of weekends ago and assembled it right away. We've ordered the mattress and mattress protectors as well, and got a great deal on them, which is fantastic! So even if Stiggy comes early, we'll have a bed ready and waiting. Aubrey's sent off the paintings and mobile she's made for the nursery, which I can't wait to see! I'm so excited for this little person to finally be here. I can't believe it's such a short time away. I keep wondering what he/she will look like and what kind of personality Stiggy will have and all that jazz. Guess I don't have too long to wait now, which seems more incredible than anything else. Sometimes it's hard to believe that I'm finally gonna be a mom!

Another bonus to this year is our trip to Canada this summer. I miss lots of things about Canada, but here are some of the things I've been relishing the thought of doing/having during our trip (in no particular order):

Okay, so it's not such a long list at the moment, but it just popped into my head. Any suggestions of things you think I might be missing would be just fine!

I can't believe you are insinuating that the British countryside does not have 'real' wild animals. What about bees?

Um, Helen, if you have to include BEES to support the evidence of REAL wild animals in Britain, there's not much out there, is there? No bears, not much in the way of deer (they're all pretty tiny unless you go to Scotland and sparsely located), and as Canada has badgers and foxes and rabbits and that sort of thing, well...
