Well another week is over, but before I tell you what I’ve been up to, a quick reminder that our clocks went forward by an hour today. So it is currently 1pm, which makes it 10pm in QLD and 11pm in NSW.
I had a relatively quiet week, but still managed to have something on every day. On Tuesday night we had an antenatal class, but it was run by a breastfeeding consultant, who was fantastic. She gave us all sorts of hints and tips and runs a small not-for-profit business providing support to new mums. On Wednesday morning I went down to the bumps and babes session at church and then we had a quiet night in. On Thursday I went to Penny’s house (from church) to have lunch with her and her 6 month old daughter Kaiya. We had a lovely afternoon eating and playing and then in the evening Adrian and I had our last antenatal class. We met 2 ladies who are going to host ‘coffee afternoons’ for our group over the next few weeks and we also met a couple and their 4 week old baby who told us all about their experiences. We’ve put a date in the diary (after everyone’s due date, allowing time to for the last baby to be late) for a reunion of all the couples and babies, which should be nice.
On Friday afternoon I met some of my workmates at the pub and because the weather was so nice we sat outside, by the river – it was lovely. We all headed home at about 5.30pm when it started to get a bit cool and we figured we should all be organising dinner. We had Toby and Dave here and I made a nice pasta dish for mains and we had ice cream slice for dessert. They arrived with another present for the baby – this time a beautiful white blanket/shawl that Dave’s Mum had made for us – what a sweety. As always, we had a lovely time catching up, playing games and doing lots of laughing.
Then on Saturday we had a lazy day before I got a lift with Jane to the church quiz night. Wanda and Alan were on our team as well as a few others I knew and some I didn’t. It didn’t take long for us to get into the lead, which we hung onto for several rounds, but were pipped to the post at the end and finished in second place. We all had a great time and the quiz was very well done. There were lots of unusual rounds, including one called Downunder which was all about Australia and New Zealand – this was my main chance to shine and I got all the ones I answered correct – yaay. It wasn’t a particularly late night, but with the clocks going forward an hour, I was glad this morning that we are evening service people.
This morning Adrian has been sorting out renewing our insurance while I filled in the Census. Looks like we’ll have a lazy afternoon and then off to church tonight.
Yesterday marked 38 weeks so I got Adrian to take a photo of me before I went to the quiz night, which is in the ‘bump photos’ album. I’m still feeling good, but desperate to meet our son/daughter, so trying to do something each day, even if it’s just walking into town. Not long to go now!! 🙂
