And so begins the slowest week in the entire working year – the week leading up to the Christmas break. We are very lucky that our office is closed between Christmas and New Year so we don’t have to go in for the few days in between like a lot of people do. So after Friday I have no work until Tuesday 4th January! Woo! They tend to let us leave at around lunchtime on Christmas Eve as well so really there’s only 4 days to go!!
Sorry for lack of updates, I started to write one on the train and then the stupid app decided to close itself halfway through and then I found it was because an update was available. Grrr. I check the App store every day for updates and yet they decide to bring one out exactly while I am writing a nice long ‘train induced boredom’ entry. Typical.
So firstly I’m gonna get the gross TMI bit out of the way. As some women may (or may not!) know, there are certain signs that help you know when your body is ovulating, one of which being a change in the er.. ‘stuff’ down there. I don’t claim to be particularly in tune with my body, after all how could I be – I’ve had one normal cycle in about 7 years what with being on the pill, the pregnancy and then losing it – but today I noticed that I seemed rather um… fertile. Today of course is exactly two weeks after my miscarriage; trust me to even do a miscarriage right down to the exact day. I bet my period shows up in exactly two weeks time as well. Apparently I am perfect at the entire reproductive cycle except for the important part of staying pregnant…. Oh well there’s always next time, I’m trying to be done with feeling sorry for myself now.
I had a lovely weekend with my family, my cousin continues to amaze me with his unbelievable cuteness – he started walking a few weeks ago, exactly on his 1st birthday (we like to do things very exactly in my family apparently haha!) which only makes him more adorable. Especially when he’s dressed such a cute trendy little outfit, I’m not kidding you, he was wearing a skinny tie!!! So so cute!
And although it might seem that I paid no attention to anyone except the baby, it was really lovely to see everyone else too. We did the whole ‘Christmas gift exchange’ thing so that’s a job well done – no chance for Royal Fail to lose my presents for everyone!!
Anyway, roll on Christmas and New Year (and please my period for goodness sake! I know it’s not been long but using protection of that sort is just sooooooooo off-putting to us both that we haven’t really bothered much. Obviously we have a couple of times since the bleeding stopped and we’ve found other things do as well 😉 but I really do miss it!) and everybody have a fabulous time whatever you’re doing! And please send nice ‘please go into labour soon’ thoughts to Alice – the poor girl is now 41 weeks and wants her Samuel to arrive plenty before Christmas please!!
