    What are you ladies doing to pass the time?

    In this heat I can't seem to bring myself to do much at all.

    I had a trip to Asda this morning and the drive there was bad enough.. came out wanting to cry I was so hot and sweaty :(

    When I'm at home I want to do some cleaning but get very sweaty very fast, and also get pains in my back/bum.

    I need a hobby!

    Baby stuff is all washed and sorted etc.... just watching crap tv and eating! Trying not to think of possibly having 7/8 weeks until he's here

    oh wow that sounds pure bliss...im really struggling with 7 and 4 yr old to keep them occupied during the hols and they are so active and want me to go out all the time!! advice is do as much as you can for yourself cause once baby is here you will never ever have that kind of time to urself ever again!! im lucky to get 1 day off!! today we watched a movie, did arts and crafts, baked lots of cakes, went out on scooters, and inbetween all that i made breakfast lunch dinner and done 2 washings hoovering and cleaned the bathroom and did the dishes about 5 times!! ahh enjoy ur freedom while u can...i would not have it any other way though but wish i could go bk and enjoy a few weeks of free time to myself n not take it for granted xxxxx

    I've got tonnes to do, I need to sort every room in the house!
    I'm going to start going for early morning walks while its still cool, and nap in the afternoon.
    I'm going to do all my CPD & tax accounts so I don't have to worry about it when baby arrives.
    Gonna meet friends for lunch who work in air conditioned places!

    Do you have any aqua natal or bump and me groups? I have an option to go to every day except Friday!

    And when I've done all the housework etc I'm gonna read my hypnotherapy book and do some knitting and sewing patchwork blankets.

    Can't wait to catch up on new girl and all my books too...no need to be bored!

    Xx

    Mine starts on Wednesday :) I'll only have 5 weeks at most though.

    I'm planning on potty training my toddler. And maybe a picnic, lido if the weather holds out, legoland maybe if it cools down.

    Last maternity leave I spent hours and hours and days and days scanning in boxes of photos onto my computer. Tedious, but a job I'd wanted to do for ages.
