Catching up

I’ve been a bit quiet in blogland over the past week. There’s been a lot going on – lots of changes at work, house still needing to be sorted out properly after moving things around, multiple phone calls and having to chase things up, financial plans and decisions being made. Also, the surgery lost my anti-D injection three times (I am rhesus negative) and I ended up having to go to hospital to get it and then I had a filling replaced with no injection at all (fun). None of these things would probably that stressful by themselves but throw them all together in the space of less than a fortnight, mix in a hefty dose of third trimester sleep disruption and the end result is I have been very tired. So, I’ve had a few days of taking things easy, slowly tidying up, reading, cooking, eating, catching up with friends and trying to get everything back together. Now I could just do with a decent nights sleep though I suspect I won’t be getting one for quite some time! I’d read plenty about feeling tired during the third trimester which was one of the reasons I was so keen to get as much done as I could while I was feeling energetic. In terms of the house there is still a lot to do but we’re past the halfway mark. Speaking of which:

Home Improvement 46: New shower bought and installed!

The house is beginning to seem like it is getting back to normal, in a new and improved sort of way, so I expect we’ll be ready to tackle something else off the list in the next week. I’d like to get as much done as possible over the next month as I suspect the tiredness will go up a gear around then! The effort of the last few months has all been worth it though. In the areas that have been finished everything seems to be calmer, tidier and easier to keep on top of, not to mention how nice it all looks. Seeing how much better one room looks when completed is a great motivator to get on and sort out the next one!

  1. You should really give yourselves a huge pat on the back, it sounds like you’re doing some great work!

    Hopefully your energy will pick up in your newly spruced up home when it’s all done.
