Feet officially up.........I'm officially bored!
Well today has been the first day of my maternity leave and I've been looking forward to this for weeks. I've not able to wait until I can sleep in, take it easy and catch up on daytime time. It's been great for the first 2 1/2 hours and now I'm totally bored.
My day started as usual as I got me and Holly up and we went through the usual routine of getting her ready and off to nursery. I came back home and got a load of washing on, sorted out some ironing and put the pots away. With first of my little jobs done I made myself some toast and a cuppa and plonked myself on the sofa to watch Jeremy Kyle. By the end of the show I felt utterly miserable and decided this was not how the rest of my maternity was going to be spent.
I decided to go for a walk and get a breath of air and no sooner had I put my shoes on but the heavens opened. I didn't let the rain dampen my spirits too much and cracked on with the baby's play mat. My back started to hurt after and hour or so, so I packed the stuff away and tried for another walk. Not happening as still tipping it down!!
Lets see if I can catch an afternoon film or something I thought to myself....not a chance. I never really understood how god awful day time T.V is. 301 channels to chose from and it is all utter rubbish.
Then came a knock at the door and it turned out to be a Jehovah's witness and I was delighted to have someone to chat to. I kept him talking when the poor sod only wanted to deliver a magazine but I think he didn't have the heart to make his excuses and just let me ramble on. It was the rain who set him free as he quickly made a dash for it when the heavens opened.
I only have half an hour before I need to pick my little lady up and it is the thing I'm looking forward to the most....bring on the chaos!
