Last week I had a bit of a hormonal wobble when I got the time for my midwife appointment mixed up and ended up being late. Cue emotional, silly, heavily pregnant woman in floods of tears on the phone to husband wailing. OOOOPS! Hormones eh? As hubby pointed out though, I am doing too much. I have been trying to fill my days with various tasks and keep on top of housework because if I don't then I feel lazy but what with suffering SPD I am doing myself no favours. (I won't bore you with what that is but should you be interested you can read about it on the NHS website HERE.) Point taken! From now on, I am doing the minimum and putting my feet up when I feel the need to. It makes me feel a lot better and actually makes total sense, after all why would you decide to hoover when you can barely walk? What is the logic behind that? I don't want to cause myself any permanent damage plus I am now hardly sleeping in the night so need to be resting / napping when I feel like it, I realise that now. I guess I should just enjoy the lazy time as once baby arrives, the notion of rest and relaxation will be a thing of the past and I will wonder why I didn't do it!

Hubby made a DELICIOUS lamb stew dinner with home made dumplings which simmered away in the slow cooker all afternoon, smelling amazing and making me hungry! It was worth the wait and perfect food for the type of winter weather we have had lately too.

My brother and his girlfriend also visited from Liverpool last week which was lovely. We didn't do lots, mainly chilled out and caught up (plus my bro had an exam for his plumbing course which he needed to revise for) but we did go out a little bit when the weather was ok-ish. It was nice to see them though and next time they visit, baby will be here and I will more back to normal (although still tired, just for another reason!). Not only that, the weather will be a hell of a lot better so going out won't seem like a chore and they are planning on visiting when hubby runs the London Marathon which will be a great day out!
That's it for me. Not very glamorous at all at the moment! I have been following London Fashion week online and through bloggers on Twitter which has been great (and not made me in the slightest bit jealous!) I hope everyone who has been involved or attended has had an amazing time! It looks like sooooo much fun.....maybe this time next year rodders! I have also been spending a lot of time browsing at my favourite online shops for post pregnancy outfit inspiration, most of which I will share with you on here over the next couple of weeks.
Have a great Monday!
