Oh no that is so stressful Sarah! Glad he made it there in time.

I donít envy you with the plaster dust wills. We totally did up our last house, every room was replastered and we were living in it so I unfortunately became well used to dealing with the mess from plastering. Short stints definitely sounds like the way to go though!

Hope you have a good last day tomorrow Jessy. Iím so jealous, wish I was done now!

How much longer do you have to go now daisies?

Soph how does it feel to be finished now. I have a horrid cold and just cannot wait to not have to drag myself out of bed at 6am anymore (except maybe to the couch downstairs when my DD decides on an early start!!!)

What are everyones weekend plans.

How much longer do you have at work LondonKiwi and Marriedlaydee too?

Do you have much snow Jessy? When I was driving to the pool for my swim this morning they said on the radio that its going to be quite bad in some places.

I finish next Friday! So a week away. But I'm working from home today and 2 days next week so I think it will go really quickly.

Then I guess its Netflix and Christmas movies until she arrives!

We have some snow here but nothing too bad. The wind is still strong though!

Still doesn’t feel real to be finished JessyG . I think when I leave here and head out to my mums next week it’ll feel like I’m actually having a baby lol. 5 hour ferry and 2 hour drive alone with 2 year old will not be fun though.

Hooray for your last day JessyG !!! Hope it’s a good one.

Yay on reaching your last day! Hope it goes well!

It's such a bizzare feeling being on leave isn't it. I still feel like I should be going to work!

A light dusting of snow down here followed by rain, hail, sunshine and more rain 😂

Ahhh thank god Sarah! What a stressful start/end to the week for you both!

I go back to work Monday after 16 days off....then it's three weeks at work until I'm off until next Autumn! I'm already looking forward to it as I'm ready for this baby to be almost done with it's cooking

Health visitor came to visit today, got told quite a bit about breastfeeding so I'm really happy about that and feeling a bit more prepared and raring to go!

So I've batch cooked 4 meals now, chicken casserole x 4 went in the freezer this morning, Gammon meat x3 last night, chicken and bacon pasta x3 the day before and lasagne x 8 servings went in Monday.

Doing quite well with the food freezing! I think I need to stop for now though as we will run out of freezer space lol. Next week I'm slow cooking a pork shoulder for dinner so going to salvage at east two portions from that and find room in the freezer for it...then I'll stop! I think my next port of call is to make some meal plans for January and February just so there's a lot of meal ideas on the fridge.

Any ideas welcome! As the end of January approaches the freezer will have a bit more room hopefully so I can maybe cook one or two more meals/meats.

And i am done!

It felt weird like really weird leaving but i wasnt sad at all. This year hasnt been good at our office so there isnt a great morale in the office. I am just glad to be at home now spending it with my baby girl waiting for my baby boy!

No snow here at all but strangely my train was cancelled this morning and i had to wait for the next one. On the train home to pick up my DD from nursery. Cannot wait to see her.

Not long now londonkiwi! I thought this day would never come but this week has flown by.

Now to concentrate o finishing xmas and getting this house ship -shape!

Married you are ridiculously organized, you're putting the rest of us to shame!!

Yay Jessy, you sound so relieved to be done....
1 more week for me and I am looking forward to it but anxious at the same time! feel like I'm going to be bored although everyone tells me that's this isn't the case. Atleast its a busy time of the year, lots of people finish up work soon and when they go back, baby will be here.

No snow here on the outskirts of London. I'm at the start of Kent so we often get snow flurries.

Heading out with friends for our annual Christmas dinner and drinks tonight. Its pretty bloody cold outside so need to have a hunt through the wardrobe and find something to wear!

Yay Jessy! Congrats on finishing enjoy some relaxing time now lovely. You've all done so well to work up to the stages that you have!

London, have a fantastic night and make sure you wrap up warm!

Married, you are so organised! Brilliant idea though to freeze up some foods for you all. That will help

All is good here, wierd day today, had my son's father come for his annual visit to see him, drove for 8 hours to get here, stayed last night at a hotel, saw him for dead on 2 hours today and drove back up. Meanwhile, my son doesn't have a clue who he is and it was all very awkward hurrah!

Had pretty continuous heavy period pains for the last 5 hours or so. Taken some paracetamol and gotten into bed so hopefully that stops them. Baby is moving around happily in there so I'm not too concerned, probably just some stretching.
