    Finally!!! I finished work and started my mat leave today!:happydance:
    I thought I would be really excited, but I was so sad when I had to say goodbye to all my colleagues :cry:
    They drive me nuts sometimes, but I'll miss their company and sense of humour.
    It also hit me like a smack in the face that this is it........I'm going to have a baby:dohh: I feel really odd now. Sitting at home with a brew and don't know what to think really. My head is all over the place.
    At least I have my baby shower to look forward to tomorrow night!!!:happydance:
    I've also got a leg wax, bikini wax and manicure booked for tomorrow and hairdressers Thursday. I feel strangely lonely though. Don't know why. Perhaps I'll feel a bit better when hubby gets home and I can talk about how I feel.

    On a happier note though - I got the results to my Nurse Mentorship course today and...............I passed!!!!:wohoo:
    One less thing to worry about while I'm off!!
    So this is it now - you'll be sick of the sight of me after a few days!!!

    Thats so true! I work (worked!!!) 50-60 hour weeks for the last 14 years, so it's all feeling a bit strange!! Plus, I realised today that, when I do go back to work, nothing will be the same again. My work life balance will change, as well as my outook to life, work and everything!
    I know everyone goes through this, I just wasn't expecting to feel like this!

    well done Kat!! Finally a bit of time for you. I know how you feel tho, I have been working at home the past 3 weeks and I have started to feel a bit lonely. Just waiting around is getting boring and all anyone ever wants to know about is the baby. hummm.

    I've got to say though - I won't miss lunch times!! Whenever I go to lunch, people feel the need to share their labour stories with me!! I said today, that I now know the most intimate details of everyone at work - and they were told to me over my food!! Nice!

    It's not surprising that you feel as if things have come to an end because in a sense they have. You've finished work and your course is now over and you probably hadn't thought about what it would be like to be at home 24/7. It's a transitional period which can be quite daunting for someone who worked so hard, being always on the go with a mapped out agenda as it were. Now you're going to be making up the targets yourself so it's normal that you feel a bit like a fish out of water. :D Only reason I know this is that I was running a pub and it's kitchen with my partner when I got pg with Charlie but after moving to a new house and getting that sorted I felt like I was twiddling my fingers. :blush:

    Don't worry; as the other girls have said you'll soon be upto your eyes in baby chores and loving every second of it. :baby:

    Congratulations on passing your course and I'm sure you'll put it to good use when you decide to return to work.

    Have a really great time with your baby shower; I wish someone would throw me one. :D
