    Hello

    It's a bank holiday up here in Scotland so I'm not back until tomorrow - a 3 day wk this wk and 3 days next wk (this Friday I'll be working from home).

    Petchy - just missed you in the chatroom, I was logged on for a while but went and put some washing on and forgot I was logged in! I think it booted me out after a while though.

    What have you got planned for your maternity leave? I think I'm just going to try and relax and get the house ready for little one and join in any mothers to be classes or groups I can find (haven't found any in my area yet and parent classes don't start until 9th Jan).

    typical! :lol: i'll log in again and stay logged on for a while. work is boring me today!!

    i'm gonna use my time before baby arrives to do a bit of nesting and a lot of resting! lol

    hopefully i will have time to clear out a few cupboards and get them organised, as well as catching up with some friends that have had their babies recently! and a catnap in the afternoon sounds veeeery tempting with all these trips to the loo i keep making in the night!

    Hello!

    Today was hard work (hadn't been in the office for nearly 2 wks!) by the time I got home I wished I was finishing on Friday but I hold on to the thought that my boss is on holiday from lunchtime Friday so my 3 days next wk (mon-wed) will be really quiet and I can take long lunches and arrive/leave on time!

    Working days left: 5

    Working days in the office: 4

    Congratulations Petchy - It must be great to know you can relax now. I hope you had a good last day. I have 10 days left to work - I came home at lunchtime today and went back to bed - I felt like pants!! Feel better now for the rest, just rather uncomfortable. Not long to go now though - soon be in single figures.

    so yesterday was my last day at work - and it was so nice at 5pm knowing that i can put my feet up now, and have a kip in the afternoon if i've had a bad nights sleep (almost every night these days!)

    my colleagues had done a collection for me, and gave me a nice rattle from early learning centre and a £75 gift card at boots (which i have already decided i will spend on a couple of nursing bras and a baby monitor). i also got a lovely card which everyone had signed.

    i have to keep reminding myself that i don't have to stress this weekend! i usually run around like a headless chicken trying to get all the cleaning done, shopping, seeing people and all of a sudden it's sunday evening and back to work on monday. but now i don't have to rush! i keep forgetting though, and got up early this morning and cleaned the house! when i'd finished i realised there was no need to rush it - but at least now the house is nice and tidy and i can sit down and admire my handiwork! lol :lol:

    Yay, I'm in the final week!

    Working days left: 2!!

    How was your first Monday on maternity leave Petchy? Last night in my usual frantic rush to get stuff done and get to bed at a decent time I was thinking it'd be my last Monday morning feeling for a while!
