    on maternity leave really bored?

    I've been off since mid-December and was OK over Christmas as I had lots to distract me but now I'm so bored. All my friends are in work and the internet is now my lifeline :lol:

    I keep telling myself that I should make the most of it while I still can but I just want my baby to hurry up!

    Anyone else climbing the walls already?

    I finished on 6th Dec, but with 2 other boys I haven't had much chance to be bored. They are back to school on Monday though, so I plan to read and sleep all day :wink:

    i am not bored yet, but i don't seem to have wound down yet. I don't seem to be able to just sit and do nothing and am constantly trying to find myself things to do!

    I am a teacher and find that i am usually like this for the first couple of weeks of the summer, then i get into the habit of doing nothing and find it hard to get motivated to do anything!!

    Same here. I'm so used to being mad-busy in work that I find it hard to do nothing.

    I've been trying to organise myself a list of small things to do each day no matter how insignificant just so I don't go mad.

    The weather's so cold it's not exactly a motivation to leave the house. I did go swimming yesterday though :)

    I'm not quite there yet, I'm still doing very light cover duties at work and although I hate having to get up and loved the time off at Christmas I think I would go a bit spare at home alone, I never thought it before but I'm not too happy with just myself for company, I need a certain level of interaction with someone other than a cat or a friendly shopkeeper!

    I bet it is making the wait hard for you and It will take you some time to wind down but I'd take everyones advice and just rest and sleep as much as you possibly can whilst you can. :sleep:
