Well That Would Explain Things........
If it seems like I've been phoning it in a bit lately, it's because I've had something else on my mind - and not just the mortgage.
Talk about out of the frying pan into the fire. More like the fire raging up and consuming the frying pan. According to our dates, creature #2 was conceived on the flight back from England, which caused a few raised eyebrows I can tell you... I remember it being a long flight, but hmm, I seem to have forgotten the mile high club incident. Funny that. I do remember writing that I felt curiously calm on returning from England. Honestly, a girl lets her guard down once and *BANG*.
Quite literally actually.
I am really delighted, it's been a long time coming, which is a subject of another post entirely. Obviously, the timing is somewhat suspect (not the conception - I swear I'm a good girl), no, I'm talking about impending financial doom, moving house (hopefully) in the next few months, construction, and banking on an upturn in the economy. Ha bloody ha. Despite all that, I'm not lying awake at night worrying about the future, aren't pregnancy hormones fantastic? No, I'm not lying awake at all because I'm completely exhausted.
I am so very ready to start feeling better.
Lying on the couch while wave after wave of nausea hits, falling asleep at the drop of the hat, while all very biologically appropriate is such a chuffing waste of time!! I have things to do - yet only a few days ago I came home and sat down for five minutes to watch 'Wonder Pets' with Anna, and woke up over an hour later with Anna hugging me screaming 'I love Oswald'!
Thankyou TV for babysitting my child.
I am thrilled to bits to have creature #2 on the way, and there is so much more to write about, but honestly, I just need a bit of a lie down right now, I appear to be more than a little knackered.
