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!
