Well I am officially on my second day of Maternity leave and it’s great! I love not having to get up and rush around, and it’s lovely spending so much more time with Maddy…every says I’ll be bored after 9 months, but I seriously don’t think I will…we will see though.
Maddy’s room is coming on lovely. Its had its initial coats of paint, the pink is lovely!!! and skirting is cut and ready to be painted, window sill and ceiling have both had one coat and need one more. We are going to pick up the flooring on Thursday, so hopefully that will go down on Friday and then the furniture can go up, which arrived this morning. Can really see it coming together now!! Sooo excited. Later this week I will get all the baby stuff out of the garage and have a good sort through, see what I can use and what needs washing etc. Then after that it’s just the crib to go up.
I guess I should also pack a labour bag in case I do have to go into hospital, but I kinda feel thats thinking that the homebirth could go wrong!
