8 Things I’m looking forward to

1. Getting to 24 weeks in this pregnancy – only a week and three days to go but from then on in Baby2 stands a chance

2. Wimbledon – something to keep me occupied during afternoon’s of having my feet up

3. The harvest from my veggie patch – its ridiculous but I get the amazing feeling of fullfillment from growing my own

4. Our summer holidays – a week on the Isle of Wight in July and then Cornwall in September, hurray !

5. Finishing the cardigan I’m knitting for Toddlergirl – back is done and looking ok, only the rest to complete now

6. Girls night out on Saturday with my Mummy friends – its been FAR too long since we caught up

7. The bathroom being replaced – we’ll have a shower again after two and a half years without (and finally get rid of a bath that empties uphill)

8. Persuading Mr MAM to come home early one night this week and sit enjoying our garden with a glass of Pimms – don’t you love summer !
8 things I did yesterday

1. Visited friends with 6 week old twins – adorable little things although Toddlergirl wasn’t convinced

2. Made oatmeal cookies to take with us on the visit – oatmeal is great for milk production and the twin’s Mummy is breastfeeding so needs all the help she can get

3. Helped Toddlergirl and Mr MAM change the blades on our lawnmower

4. And then cut the grass

5. Did a bit of very gentle weeding – it appears nature still wants bits of our garden back to wilderness

6. Finished the back of the cardigan for Toddlergirl

7. Made lasagne for lunch to spoil Mr MAM on Fathers’ Day

8. Took pictures of Toddlergirl and Mr MAM in their version 1.0 and version 2.0 t-shirts – beyond cute !
8 things I wish I could do

1. Not have to be taking things easy – I know its best for Baby2 but its beginning to be a little tedious

2. Be more organised – we lurch from moments of being under control to utter chaos

3. Be able to let things go – obsessing really isn’t good

4. Focus more on the positives than negatives

5. Be fitter – sitting around resting is undoing all the good that months of hard work around the house and garden have done getting me fit

6. Find time in the day to do everything I want

7. Know that I’m doing the right thing working whilst Toddlergirl is small – I want to be a good role model for her but have the niggling worry that being away from her might not be the right thing to do

8. Click my fingers
8 favourite fruits

1. Cherries – enough to fill all 8 slots !
8 places I’d like to travel to

1. New Zealand – revisiting our wonderful honeymoon trip

2. Fiji – to relax after New Zealand

3. South Africa – to visit friends and my Great Aunt’s grave

4. The Lake District

5. Land’s End

6. Any American ski resort (want to confirm that Europe is best !)

7. Vietnam

8. Borneo

1. Harpenden

2. Earls Court

    >thanks for the tag, i'll get around to it soon! ooh you have been to Harpenden, so have I, in fact every tuesday for parenting classes… 🙂

  • Brit in Bosnia / Fraught Mummy

    >You've lived remarkably close to where I once went to school..! And grew up in general. Scary. I'm also looking forward to reaping the crop from my veggie patch, if I can get to it before the dog does. Grrrrr. Enjoy Wimbledon, you deserve it.

  • Muddling Along Mummy

    >OMG its a small world – zooarchaeologist there must be a chance we have met in the real world then … eek !

    Fraught Mummy I also went to school around here (well Berkhamsted) – this world is really teeny

  • Brit in Bosnia / Fraught Mummy

    >MAM – I was thinking less of the Berkhamsted and more of the (frankly still terrifying) Hammersmith and Brook Green!

    The world is really small though. There are quite a few weird bloggy connections!

  • Muddling Along Mummy

    >Ooops FM rather missed the point there – shall just ponder which of those schools you went to (Hammersmith / Brook Green were my bachelorette days … wistful memories moment !)

    Part of me loves the small world and another part is slightly worried by it ! You do think the internet is a great anonymous mass and then realise actually its still a tiny world !

  • family affairs

    >HELLO, I'm back from my travels and just wanted to thank you for including me in your list – I will try my best to get on the list, but please don't be offended if I find I don't have time and then it slips because I JUST SEEM TO HAVE SO MUCH TO DO NOW I"M BACK!!! Hope all is well with your baby Lx

  • nappy valley girl

    >Thanks for tagging me, it's good to have found your blog. Good luck with the baby – know how worrying these things are, I spent a month in hospital before LIttleboy 2 was born at 35 weeks and was surrounded by people having problems at a much earlier stage. My fingers are crossed for you.

    I've actually done the '8 things' one before so am afraid I'm going to give it a miss this time. But the tagging is appreciated!

  • Muddling Along Mummy

    >Not offended at all if you don't get around to it for a bit FA – being new to all this I just tagged blogs I like reading so hopefully no offensive given or taken

    Thank you NV – baby is currently well and hanging on in there, we're taking it in stages now, get to 24 weeks, get to 28 weeks and so on -hopefully she'll go to term and surprise us all !
