Things I'm Loving Number Two!
How awesome is that? A way to organise your crafting life! Very very clever -and they have
free patterns too...
One I'm considering doing is here.
My friend-of-the-same-unusual-name has sent me so many loving care parcels from the States that I want to pour some love back on her.
One very wonderful thing about not having delivered Miss Piggy yet is that I get to have a few days of alone-time.
With The Jord back in school and The Frog spending his free ECE hours with his Granny, I get a few hours alone everyday before we have a newborn in the house again.
As desperate as I have been to reclaim my body, I suppose this is one silver lining!
I am very content to be alone, just doing my thing...
Thirdly, several things that all fall into the same category:
Caller ID on my mobile and a landline that can remain switched off.
Facebook's 'Go Offline' chat feature.
And a midwife with the very wise advice to shut the world out!
Much of the stress an overdue pregnant woman feels is apparently due to the many well-meaning people constantly trying to contact her and ask: 'What's happening?' and the all-too-frequent and disappointing reply: 'Nothing.' She says she has noticed that the more people her patients communicate with, the more stressed they feel and the more likely they are to compromise on what they want for a birth, just to get it over with. Obviously some mothers thrive on constant communication - at the moment, I'm not one of them.
I now only talk to my husband, my midwife and my family. If they can get hold of me that is...
You are all special people to me, I love you all and appreciate the care you are showing, but let me reassure you: I'm fine. I'm overdue by 5 days by my reckoning (2 by my midwife's).
I'm tired, cranky, frustrated, hormonal, emotional, uncomfortable and very hard to live with at the moment.
But I'm fine.
Thank you PaisleyJade for finding me this link! It gave me a good giggle and is highly applicable at the moment.
Hope everyone is having a great day today and that you all have a peaceful relaxing weekend -
...and I'm hoping to have joyous news to share with you at the end of it.
