All this Christmas cheer that is going around is making me feel like I should be part of it...but alas I am still full of the grumps and last night our lights on our tree broke so now we don't even have sparkle. So here I remain.
One positive I do have is that we have booked a grown ups only weekend away in January to visit wedding venues - very exciting. But for me at least, the wedding bit of it comes second to all the other things I am excited about. Let me share them with you...
1. Not having to share my breakfast with anyone
2. Not having to be spoon fed my own cereal by cute but spill-y little hands
3. Not having to have an audience while I use the bathroom
4. Not having those same small hands tearing at toilet roll, pulling at me, cleaning the floor with my toothbrush...etc while I use the bathroom
5. Being able to go to sleep whenever I want and be certain of not being woken by crying or wailing or the very worse, whining.
6. Being able to wake up when I want to wake up, when MY BODY is ready.
7. Having the time and space to acknowledge, properly, that I am indeed pregnant again. To give the foetus some attention for a change
8. To give my fiance some attention for a change
9. Not to have to tidy up, mainly because there will be no mess to tidy up.
10. Not to have to change a nappy, or another persons clothes for 3 whole days
There are more but I feel like I have grumped enough for this festive season, my next post will be chirpier I promise!
