I'm having a catch-up day today. I should be in school teaching, but I had hardly any sleep (again) last night, along with a sore throat where the pain shoots to your ears. Well, my ears. So I phoned in sick and I'm glad I did. My throat feels better for resting, and I slept until 11am. Lounging around in pyjamas is exactly what I need to do. In fact I'm still in bed now.

I am so looking forward to starting my maternity leave. I have a lonnnnnnnng list of things to get done, but at least I won't have to go to work as well. 14 working days to go.

I'll be 35 on Sunday. I'm quite shocked.

Wow, I can't believe it's been a few weeks since I last posted. Time has flown.

I'm alive and well, and also feeling tired and overwhelmed by all the demands of my life right now. Underneath the fatigue and panic is a deep well of calm and happiness.

In spite of my anterior placenta hiding a lot of the movement, our baby has been kicking more and more strongly, and I'm sure she had hiccups a few evenings ago.

I've had 6 driving lessons now. I'm quite enjoying them so far...

Adriano is weathering my moods and tiredness like a real trooper. This evening he came in with a bar of my favourite chocolate.

I do eat healthy things too, I promise, but here's a picture of a delicious cake I enjoyed with my friend Anna a few weekends ago:
