I made a list of things to do each day to keep myself active and occupied, and also keep into a routine. I am tyring to do at least 2/3 things a day.
My list comprises of:
load of washing
iron garments from previous day
vacuum a room
dust a room
mop kitchen floor
go for a swim
make a recipe from a book/ magazine
visit/ meet a friend/ have friends over
read my book
Sounds a bit bizarre but I am a teacher and I crave structure and routine..and go a bit doolally if I have no plans!! So even though I have "no plans" I have little plans...
Today I've been for a swim, shopped for cake ingredients and made a cake (well it's in the oven!) and having friends over to eat said cake. The way I see it is nothing there is too strenuous but if I keep on top of the house/ garden jobs (depending on weather) and do some nice things then the time will pass and I won't just be sitting about, waiting.
Excellent!!!! I go off on Maternity in 9 weeks, but with the annual leave and bank holidays between now and then, I only have about 30 days of actual work left!!! I will be off for just over 9 months in total.
I am due July 10th and finish June 13th, so just under a month at home before my due date. I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do with myself as I have everything organised for the baby and I have been getting the house sorted at the weekends so that I know I dont have to much to do when I get even bigger than what I am now.
I was thinking about maybe getting a good DVD box set or a good book to read, but somehow, I just can't see myself sitting still for long enough!
All the best, I hope your LO doesnt keep you waiting too long xx
I wish I knew when I was going on leave. Our administrator quit the other week and she was supposed to be replacing me.So the new one starts in a week and a half but, I have to then train her on all the systems and processes. So I will probably only have 2-3 weeks off before bubs is due. Good thing I love my job just hate climbing the stairs each morning.
