    thank god i've still got 6.5 weeks to go...

    i've got to:

    * get the loss adjustor round to approve the building work on insurance
    * move out of our flat whilst the entire floor is replaced throughout
    * get our flat recarpeted
    * clean everywhere and repaint

    then and only then can i start thinking about buying everything that we still need (including a crib) and making sure that everything is ready for trog. and at some point i'll contemplate hair removal and toe nail painting...

    :wall: :wall: :wall:

    > finish nursery - assemble cot (had to order spare parts today - wait 28 days for same) , shorten curtains, wash blankets etc (no wasing machine @ the minute)
    > Tidy out study
    > Buy nappies. cot top changer (maybe), and a widgey pillow for breast feeding
    > finish packing

    Not panicking though baby will be in our room in moses basket for a while anyway :D

    oh not much for me :?

    first i have to sell my flat

    i also have to relocate to the west country for 6 weeks this weekend (I have technically left work but my OH and work partner has been placed in weston supermare in spite of requests to be commutable to home! Home is 3 hours away :? Well he's not going anywhere without me ! :hug: )

    After that we both need to move (permanently) to loughborough...altho we wont have completed on houses and will need to find somewhere temporary to rent! :think:

    At the same time I will be chasing solicitors to complete on the business acquisition (buying a gym) so that its done on time for when we move up there (to the non existent house lol)

    apart from that everything is just fine!!!! I have a sling so we have somewhere to put the baby, and we have nappies and clothes in one of our many packed boxes. Not much more I can do! :?

    luckily i have a few weeks to spare and im not about to pop like a lot of you lot :D
