Back To Daily A Routine....At Last!

The past 2 weeks have been busy....but don't ask me what I have been doing as I really couldn't tell you any specific 'events', I think it is just having all the children at home over the past 6 or 7 weeks for the summer school break makes for a busy household.

I did manage however to get myself off to the Doctors to confirm my pregnancy and get the appropriate forms for the appropriate tests to be done, which meant a few days after that I had blood tests and a 'dating' ultrasound to find out when exactly this baby is due. As it turns out the baby is due on the 6th of September - ages away, I know! After seeing the flickering of our tiny babys heart on the ultrasound makes it all a bit more real now. I felt very excited, but also relief to see that everything was on track, so far. Next is to get over all the pregnancy nausea I have had this time around. Of my 5 previous pregnancies, I have never really suffered from morning sickness. I wouldn't say I have really been 'sick' so to speak this time either, just the yukky feeling of feeling unwell at the most inconvenient times, particularly at meal times. I am sure this will all pass soon enough though.

On another note, the girls all go back to school next week which they are all very excited about. I must admit, I am just a bit excited about it too. It will be nice to be back into the day routine that school time brings. It will also be nice to have a little bit of peace and quiet around the house during the day (not forgetting the 2 littlies will be here) - it does become very noisy with 3 older girls constantly chatting all day long. So as we all get ready for the return of school, holidays for the girls draw to a finish - they have been fun, but very long, bring on school days!!

..... Just another day ....

I'm glad you're feeling ok. Will you have help with the little gems when the big ones are in school?

I'm really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays..
